  • Pours opaque with a couple of inches of tan foam. Retention is about average with the foam frothing up some. Lacing is minimal.

    Aroma is big: coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt come through loud and clear. A caramel/toffee note is in there as well.

    Taste is similar to the nose. Coffee, chocolate, and roasted flavors abound. Roasted is a bit stronger than the rest with a touch of roasted coffee lasting into the finish, including some creamy chocolate.

    Medium mouth feel with mild carbonation, which might be giving it too much. Creamy and somewhat drying.

    Been a while since I have had an Asylum beer. Why? My taste buds are usually very happy with anything and everything from there. Contorter fits in perfectly. A solid beer all around. I will definitely find this one again. Enjoy!
