Another bomber of Two Brothers from the always awesome Dan. Served up in a bulbed tulip.
A: Pours a jet, glossy black body. Held to the light, the black holds up with no light cutting through. Remains completely opaque. The pour got me almost a finger of mocha colored head. The retention is ok, but it falls to a thin but creamy top cap. There is just a touch of lacing spotting the glass down the glass. Looks great.
S: Coffee is no joke here. Just a huge and very clean roasted coffee aroma. Black, no cream; just dark and awesome. Just spot on cup of joe. Dark malts, faintly chocolaty. Touch of yeast, but not picking up on any hop notes. Just a great nose on this beer.
T: Once again, big coffee. Black, dark roasted coffee. Doesn't have the often times metallic quality some coffee beers do. Just a touch of creaminess to it. Has a lightly floral/fruity quality to it that could either be from great coffee beans or from the hops. Nice earthy note punching through at times. Rounds off with some dark malts with a touch of sweetness.
M: Perfectly medium bodied porter with a moderate to low carbonation level. Lightly sweet on the palate but it mostly sticks with the coffee like bitterness. ABV is light for such a big beer, barely noticeable. Aftertaste is all coffee.
OA: Just a fantastic coffee porter. Everything here is harmonious and works well. I can't find a single complaint or hang up. The coffee flavor is some of the best I have ever experienced in a beer. Very much a fan of this beer.
Pours an ebon ruby to sit extremely black and opaque with a small slimming cap of lightly tanned bubbly foam. Bits of bubbles stay around the edge and the lace is long and inky splattered and stringy with a few broken bits into spots and globs.
Aroma is favorable of chocolate laced coffee. Mildly roasty with a nice bakers chocolate loftyness with a nice fresh coffee bean ascent, cold pressed espresso and burnt cream notes too. Its not as strong on the nose as most other coffee brews I've encountered and liked but its definately solid.
Taste is smooth and soft of a wonderfully placed display of lengthy chocolate laced with coffee. Or its coffee laced with chocolate? Either way it's a very nice taster. Softly bittered in dark chocolate with a firm smack of creamed coffee, slightly roasted and burnt. The length is tone is superbly set. Dark, deep, and full of breath. The dry fluff of chocolate cake and bittering creamed coffee across the finish is quite a nice addition in its character as it finishes firm and doesn't leave for nothing.
Feel is firmly smooth and creamy and set in a nearly full on mode of chocolate and coffee and tenderized with dryish bittering of those things. The dryness of a chocolate cake or muffin lays itself lightly and lovingly across the finish with a delightful ease.
A super solid coffee brew by Two Brothers. Quite drinkable with its creamy firm attitude and lenghty palate soaking taste.
