The smoothest of smooth. Like a velvety thick dark chocolate milkshake with half a shot of fresh coffee. Not boozy at all, immaculate work.

Roasty and malty. Fair amount of dark caramel in the body with a hint of rich toffee. Gentle sweet tropics and a streak of citrus in the hops. Best Black IPA I’ve had in some time.

Array of citrus: orange, grapefruit, hint of tangerine. Some sweet pineapple and mango on the back end. Slightly sweet overall, with a hint of bitter zest.

Bloody massive. Super saltwater with strong coffee and chocolate. A little champagne astringency on the back end. Thick and a little milky; slight sweetness overtaken by the champagne yeast and salt character.

Solid sour profile, just a little salt on the back end. Nice refreshing berry, delicate and balanced yet complex and different each sip.

Thin mouthfeel; quite sour, nice solid salty back end. Peach sweetness initially, then the tart raspberry takes over. Very slim vanilla character.

I’m sorry y’all, I’m too drunk to give a proper review. But I’m tasting plunger coffee that can’t possibly be 7.6%... what is this sorcery? Don’t trick me with your gentle dark chocolate addition and your slender dry caramel body, I’m not that kinda fool.
