The eyes are indeed fooled as the nose is hit with roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. On the tongue is a mild coffee flavor, tempered by just a bit of sweetness. The charred malts get just a bit too acidic for me, leaving a finish that doesn't quite hit the mark. Not what I was hoping for, and certainly not the best effort from Rhinegeist.
