Had this for breakfast with my pancakes, eggs and bacon. Black pour, a brown head that fades to nothing. Aroma of coffee beans like smelling a can of coffee. Flavor is coffee beans, real dry and roasted and with a straight acidic irony aftertaste. Vanilla rides in the background blending with the coffee well but you can just tell they used beans and not actual coffee. Thin watery mouthfeel, hardly any carbonation, seriously this beer needs to go back on the drawing board.

12oz. pours dark with off white head. nose is overly vanilla, with hints of chocolate and coffee, way off balanced. flavor is odd, very sweet, brown sugary, chocolate, licorice, vanilla, and stale coffee. watery mouthfeel. just a mess of a beer.

12oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a dark brown color; light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Dense, coffee and bitter chocolate in the aroma; some earthiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lively carbonation, with a slightly green and slightly vegetal coffee character (mostly roasted, with some milk chocolate); some roasted malts mid-palate. Medium, coffee and vegetal finish.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of artusory. Clear, "see-thru" brown with ruby edges and a beige head. Coffee, dirt/earth in the aroma. The flavor is kind of light overall. Notes of light chocolate and caramel. Then, plenty of earthy coffee. Has a slight spike of sourness at the end - but not in an infected type of way. Light bodied and somewhat watery with medium carbonation.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 Pours near black with ruby hues near the the edges. Aroma of stale coffee, smoke, oily, alcohol-based herbal extract, cardboardy roast, and nasty vanilla. Taste is chocolate, smoke, tar, sour oxidation, and strange vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with light carbonation. On a rerate the score went from a 2.1 to 1.7.

Nice pour with a carmel colored head. Sweet Vanilla arommas and Black coffee. The taste was smooth and creamy vanilla but then the after taste of coffee ground hit and ruined the experince. My brother loved this one but, out as a rule I don’t waste beer but my half went down the drain.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Sweet vanilla, lactose aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Pours black. Very sweet upfront, vanilla, then turns into a carbonated cold black coffee which isn’t entirely pleasent, then some coffee grinds, and finishes very smooth and sweet with vanilla and chocolate flavors. All in all not bad.

Bottle. Pours a lighter black body with nice head. Aroma is of vanilla, roasted malt. Flavor was sweet with the vanilla being dominant, but not too strong. Roasted chocolate malt and a small amount of coffee wiht cream. Very drinkable and was surprised to find myself enjoying this one.
