*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 1-18-08. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Thanks to ncvbc for the trade. Vintage 08 on the bottle.

Pours dark with some red highlights. About an inch of chocolate colored foam quickly forms and almost as quickly settles back to the glass.

Aroma is mostly coffee, dark roasted coffee with oats. Chocolate and roasted malts in the background along with some warm milk aroma, cocoa, and a bit of oak and vanilla. The smell is really appetizing; I’m picturing a cup of coffee with frosted flakes.

The coffee taste is just a tad sweeter than expected from the heavily roasted aroma, very good though. Coffee is at the forefront with some chocolate, roasted malts, maybe a bit of dark fruits, and malted milk. A bit of chocolate covered cherries in the finish which I’m thinking it comes from the alcohol.

Excellent amount of carbonation, and not too thick either.

I wouldn’t mind one bit getting a few more of these.
