On tap at Papago. This is out of control. Pours obsidian with a trim tan head. Smells of COFFEE. Trumps every coffee flavored beer I have yet to encounter. Absurdly concentrated. Notes of caramel and dark fruit help round out the flavor, but this is all about the coffee and it is pretty awesome. Whoa.

Draft @ Brouwer’s Stout Fest; dense black with thin, dark tan head; aroma mix of astringent roast, sweet coffee and booze; raw toffee, espresso, chocolate; raw, sweet and a little minerally; silky, sticky mouthfeel and big time coffee; nose is a little much for me, buts drinks relatively smooth and rich considering the ABV; still over the top and not well rounded compared to other strong coffee stouts

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2010
On tap at the Papago Avery Night in April. Pours crude oil black with a thin tan head. The nose Gevalia Coffee, rich Belgian chocolate and roast. The taste is dark chocolate, decadent espresso, roasty coffee beans and burnt malt. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Gets boozy as it warms. Incredible beer.

Rating 600. On tap at the Brouwer’s stout fest 2010. I *loved* this beer. Pours black, with a thick burnt-mocha head. Coffee on the nose, but warm, fresh coffee - not the stale variety you usually find in stouts. Toasted sugar - like seafoam candy or slightly burnt marshmallows. Doesn’t taste anywhere near 16%. Hot, but not too hot. This stuff is like candy. Chocolate infused with espresso, coated in sugar and torched. Remarkably clean. Dangerous. Delicious.

Crushed at BSAF 2010. Full-bodied. An absolutely huge beer. A palate wrecker for sure. Huge coffee flavor and aroma combined with dark chocolate and some fruitiness. One of the highlights of the tasting.

This is extremely intense. Massive flavor. Like a straight shot of espresso but without the all of the coffee negatives. This is perfectly balanced from front to back, start to finish. there is no way you could improve this beer. just the right amount of hops matched to the sweetness. steers away from the dark fruits and stays in the coffee dark chocolate realm.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Black, thick tan head on it. Aroma is intense and boozy, with lots and lots of fresh coffee. This is loaded with espresso and smooth chocolate, a little acid and char. Thick body on it. Finishes very hot and boozy. This is tasty and I love the coffee flavor, but it’s excessively hot for my taste.

draft at brouwers back in black. jet black with dense creamy burnt tan head and tons of stringy lace. insanely rich and roasty dry coffee grounds nose, smells so much like coffee that it seems like coffee isnt even made yet, just freshly ground. creamy huge thick body, a little sticky. roast, coffee, ash, char, and plenty of acidity and oil on the mid palate. its still way hot, but somehow integrated. long rich roasty finish.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Dark coffee, tons of sweet dark malt, lots of coffee, really big sweet coffee nose as well as earthy hop bitterness and some booze on the nose. Nice aroma. Black pour, beige foamy ring, foamy islands on side of glass. Big coffee flavors, espresso, dark fruity undertones, dark sweet chocolate, more coffee, almost coffee liquery. Hot alcohol notes, lingering coffee and roasted malts. Big strong beer, wow.
