Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts. The aroma is crazy potent coffee, spice, and wood. Medium moutfeel with a strong coffee bean, oak, booze. Very good.

Bottle (on Christmas)... Poured jet black with a thin forming head. Aroma of brandy liquor and coffee. Wow! This tasted so nice. Strong, dominant coffee tones that were smoothed out by the barrel here. Wood and spirit alcohol came in especially towards the finish. Also notes of roasted grains, molasses, mocha, and big roasted coffee all the way through. Couldn’t get enough of this stuff.

Sampled at GABF13. Smells like fresh roast coffee and has a winning balance to boot. This isn’t an overpowering coffee stout in any way, but it’s one of the best I’ve had.

22oz bottle, courtesy of Beachwood. Thanks, guys! Pours a deep, dark chocolate-brown color; medium tan head with excellent lacing. Loads of well-roasted coffee, floral and spicy cardamom in the aroma, plus plenty of milk chocolate; nice balance of spiciness and rich dark malts.

S: Like other Beachwood coffee brews this is just straight up coffee, caramel cream. espresso, dark chocolate, cinnamin, and a hint of mollasses. P: Black with a finger brown head that dispences on to lacing. (the usual). T: Dark roast chocolate, some cinnamin and brandy, but doesnt go far beyond the coffee and it ends with a roast. M: soft carbonation and silky. O: Very good, slight boozy but still easy to drink.
