1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2008 There is no excuse for this. Black pour, but incredibly thin body for a stout. Otherwise, a light coffee aroma and a pour, sour, stale coffee taste. The finish has a terrible sour taste. Why the would waste their time selling and marketing such a poor product, i have no idea.

Pretty awful beer. It gives a pretty nice pour with a giant head and decent lacing but the taste is severely lacking. I’m not lying when I say this is one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted, beer or otherwise. Par for the course for Arbor though, This was the nail in coffin for me, i’ll be avoiding their label in the future.

Three words: WTF. It’s as if they spent all the money on the marketing budget for the labels and then forgot to buy quality ingredients to make the beer. It is near irrational, but nothing disappoints me more than a bad beer, than a bad beer with an awesome label. This just tasted like sour chocolate malts and the coffee McDonald’s tries to serve you at like 3 in the afternoon.

bottle shared by mmm///beer. Thanks Dennis!
Pours a dark black with a fizzy tan head. Smell is roasty and coffee beans with some dullness to the malt. Taste is mostly coffee and there is slight tartness about it as well. Tart coffee grounds but some creamy sweetness in there as well. Thin bodied and fizzy. Not great, but not bad, overall.

Nice nearly black pour, lingering tan head. Powerful roast coffee aroma. Bitter coffee with quite a bit of carbonation. Some roast malt, but not much. Fairly clean finish, some sourness? Like they tried to combine a Belgian style stout with a cup of espresso. If you like the Belgian stouts, you might like this one. Just ok to me though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Sampled 7-8-08) 12 oz. bottle poured into shaker- poured pitch black, Cadillac size head that went away real slow and heavily laced. Aroma of hard coffee and malt, low carbonation. HIs the mouth with a heavy and thick body- the malt and hard coffee taste is at times very hard to tell apart from one another, finish has a mild bitterness. Not for the faint of heart- flawed but still drinkable.

Bottle. Chalky, uncomfortable body and a carbonation beyond lively drag this beer down. Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. The aroma is espresso and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. The flavor was lightly to moderately sweet and moderately coffee bitter. Finishes with a bitterness and sourness. The medium body had a gritty texture. Uber-lively carbonation.

Actually poured this one out!!! It hurt my heart but the beer was that bad. Great name, great bottle, horrible excuse for a beer. Definitely smell the roasted espresso bean but there is an artificial sweetener-like aroma present as well. Flavor of day-old Folgers, Sweet-n-Low, & soured milk. Nasty...Espresso HATE.
