A coffee laden beer that will awaken the soul. Mexican vanilla, a good roasty stout, and 7 lbs of Superstition Coffee.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Tried the latest batch. They finally nailed it imo. Perfect amount of coffee aroma, and the coffee taste was in perfect balance to the rest of the beer. On nitro so it had that glorious creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 At the brewery, black pour, tan head. Aroma is very coffee forward with some vanilla in the mix. Taste has espresso, vanilla and a little bitter dark chocolate in the finish. Update: After a day, the finish has mellowed a little bit. Even smoother and better now. Excellent!

Coffee heaven! Pours a mostly clear dark brown color. Aroma? Coffee! And more coffee! Fresh brewed coffee, hints of vanilla, roasted malt, a slight bitter finish. If you donít like coffee this isnít for you.

32 oz. growlette from Daknole. Thanks! It pours black with a nice creamy tan head. The aroma is huge with fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla sweetness and herbal hops. The flavor is the same. Massive coffee flavors without any acidity or astringency. Dark chocolate and a little herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Amazing stuff and very drinkable. Maybe my favorite coffee beer to date!

Itís basically just a cup of coffee. Iím considering filling a mug tomorrow before work! Huge roasty flavor, lots of ground coffee flavor. Have you ever had chocolate covered espresso beans? This is a liquid form of that. I can actually imagine the little crunch and bits of coffee between nay teeth while I drink it. This is fantastic.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Draft. Black. Fair, lasting, creamy light brown head. Phenomenal coffee character all around. Fresh ground coffee. Vanilla compliments. Chocolate balanced a smooth roastiness. Very mild bitterness. Sweetness to balance. Medium body. Smooth and oh so drinkable. Outstanding coffee beer. ** New recipe (which replaces 2 lbs of the superstition blend with espresso) rocks. I like it even more.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 On nitro at the brewery (batch 3). Dark brown in appearance with a khaki-colored, craggy two-fingered head. Clean, fresh-roasted coffee beans dominate the aroma; roasted malts, bitter, earthy spices, some cacao nibs, and traces of vanilla also add to the nose. Extremely roast-forward flavor, from both the coffee and malts, that transitions to a clean coffee taste with a bold yet pleasant vanilla sweetness. Medium body with a great creamy texture and slight lingering roasty bitter finish. This batch on nitro is an improvement over the first batches on CO2; the creaminess and vanilla flavor kicks in up a notch.

Tap at brewery. I had just had an espresso from superstition only to find myself a few minutes later enjoying this beer made with it. This is great coffee and it really comes through in beer. Pours deep brown and nose is espresso, vanilla, and malt. Tastes much of the same in all best ways. Itís bitter and creamy and goes down so smooth. My kind of stout

Ferris (6563) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Draft - Coffee and vanilla, like the chocolate covered coffee beans. Jet black with a rich nitro beige head. Much more subdued than I expected. Still full of dark roast.

A very nice coffee stout. What makes this one is the flavor vis-a-vis the ABV. Great stout base -- just a "wee" hint of sweetness and roastiness. Coffee flavor is subdued, and not over the top. Quite quaffable.
