Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
On tap at Southern Sun. Pours a dark, opaque brown with a finger of quickly settling light brown head. Sheets of thin lacing. Aroma is strong roasted coffee with significant alcohol. Flavor is rich, slightly bitter, roasted coffee up front, espresso, toffee, and dark chocolate. Hints of rum and stone fruit. Roasted, coffee, and bitter finish that lingers. Incredible masking of alcohol, can hardly be tasted under all the coffee and malts. Soft carbonation, very full body, and full, thick texture. Warm finish, alcohol is more noticeable in feeling than in the taste. Super rich, strong, smooth, the ultimate coffee beer and an incredible rendition of an already amazing brew. Liked it so much I had to have a few.

Opaque black beer, no real head. Light palate, fairly smooth. Sweet black coffee. A little sweet lactose. Underneath are sweet red berry fruits. Nicely joined up and smooth. Hides the abv very well. Tasty treat!

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at the Avery Tap Takeover at The Common Table. The beer pours a pitch black color with a brown head. The aroma is full of coffee with some roasted malt thrown in. The coffee is extremely intense in the aroma, as well as the flavor. This tastes like I imagine iced espresso with a shot of alcohol would taste. There is also some roasted malt and chocolate but this is really all about the coffee. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very nice.

Black with a khaki head. Hella coffee, espresso, roasted beans, more coffee. Very smooth on the palate, it’s like drinking coffee with alcohol.

Draft. The aroma is espresso with boozy menthol. It looks fantastic. The taste is dark malt and coffee with no alcohol. Very good for how much alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head that sticks around. The aroma is coffee forward with a little mocha trail. The taste is big coffee but not overly bitter or sweet.. Really great with just a touch of alcohol on the finish. An experience I hope to repeat.
