TAP. Coffee, chocolate, and banana on the nose. It tastes like good, strong, black coffee.

2013 bottle, thin black pour, nice bit of medium white head that dissipates pretty quick. Aroma of sweet roasted coffee, molasses and ash. Taste is a nice bit of earthy roasted coffee, fairly bitter finish, the coffee flavour sticks around and lingers on the back your tounge. Nice and drinkable, a good winter stout.

All around what you would expect. Has a very strong coffee aroma and taste. A little watery though.

Burnt and smoked flavors are risky. This beer goes a little too far with them. Flavors of smokey coffee, burnt chocolate, toast and cream. Very good feel and body helps even out and carry the harsh flavors. This may be a niche beer that you either love or pass on.

Trade Thanks to NHhophead! Bottle pours a thick oil black with a thick almost Nitro like khaki head. Nose is a black cup of coffee with a little chocolate sweetness. Taste is sweet malt up front that quickly hits you with strong black coffee. Thick body, smooth mouth feel.

Pours very dark boot-black with a bubbly tan head that settles to a nice ring and a faint coating. Aroma is coffee, coffee, coffee and some malt with a touch of cinnamon. Taste brings more roasted malt, but this is a Joe-powered experience. You might expect grounds in your mouth with the coffee-packed aftertaste, but there is some malt sweetness. A nice expresso stout that lives up to its billing.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours a jet black, opaque with a tan one finger head. Head gone in about 60 seconds. Some spider lacing. Aroma overwhelming coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is the same with a mostly bitter coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Finish is bitter and malts. Medium to full in body.

Dark brown ale with a tan head. Has a coffee aroma and a nice coffee and chocolate flavor. Goes down creamy and smooth. Delicious and well-balanced.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 Pours a dark brown with a small, creamy, tan head. Aroma is reminiscent of pulling the foil cover off of a Folgers can. Just lovely. Mildly creamy texture with some carbonation microscrubbing. This is definitely a breakfast brew. From appearance, to aroma, to mouthfeel, to flavor, this would go with bacon and eggs as good as anything. Tons of coffee, dark chocolate and smoky olive. A lot of fun.
