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

boxofrane (2347) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2012
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.

Aroma of sweet roasty coffee. Pours black with a tan head. Taste is roasty with sweet chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is intended without tasting like alcohol. Drink slowly!

Ink black pour with one finger burnt brown head. Super fresh coffee nose, smells like cold extraction. Coffee character is overwhelming and dominating with notes of chocolate. Rich flavor, too much coffee. Bitter burnt coffee and chocolate. Full bodied with some alcohol on the finish.

Black. Just a ring of tan head. Smells like booze and coffee. As if someone put cognac in a dark roast. Slight pruniness? Coffee bomb. TOTALLY smooth. Silky even. Light sweetness and a bread, toasted flavor is present. After a while, alcohol becomes noticeable, side by side with lingering coffee.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 6, 2012
On tap at Avery Taproom. Pours a deep black with a small brown head, that quickly recedes into a thin ring. Aroma is full of roasty sweet chocolate and espresso. Big coffee flavors start things off with roasted malts in the background. Midway molasses and dark fruits sweeten things up. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors then carry through to a velvety soft finish with a full, thick mouthfeel. Not harsh at all, with just a little alcohol coming through in the taste, you’d never think it was 15%.

On-tap at The Long Room during CCBW. Poured into snifter. A - Pours black, mocha-colored head, thin cap, spotty lacing. S - Coffee is right up front, followed by dark chocolate, smooth booze, some toffee, slight roast. Basically, lots of coffee and booze, both very-well done and smooth. T - Coffee beans, black coffee, dark chocolate, cream, toffee, expresso. Lots of caffeine and lots of alcohol. The 15% (which is what the menu said) is noticeable, but man, it’s still pretty damn smooth. M - Medium, rich and smooth, light carbonation, creamy roast finish. O - After a few sips, my face started to feel a bit fuzzy. This is one potent beer, to say the least. The alcohol is very-well hidden and the coffee notes are wonderful. This is what you order for an after dinner drink, no doubt about it. Yum!
