COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

Pours black with brownish thick head. Smells of chocolate, fresh coffee and roasted malt. Super smooth tastes of sweet chocolate, roasted malt and a cup of dark roast coffee. Pretty amazing. Light body medium carbonation. Only negative is it could become a bit sweet if you were to have a few.

Nice beer. The aroma is huge coffee grounds. The taste is very well balanced, lots of coffee in the finish and a well temoered bitterness, but up front I got a lot of chocolate. Loved it. Definitely would pick this up again. Go Bells,

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Thick pour with no head. Coffee, chocolate fudge, malts smell. Smooth texture and taste like aroma but with a little bit of peanut butter mixed in(weird). A good coffee stout.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Motor oil black pour, zero visibility with fully lasting 1/4" thick frothy tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of coffee bean, malt and some chocolate notes. Moderate malt and coffee up front with more chocolate on the finish. As it warmed it was malt from start to finish. Medium body with a cream texture. I dig it!!

Strong coffee aroma with lots of toffee and candy. Pours deep reddish brown, almost black with a small amount of head. Strong coffee flavor with nuts, candy. Some sour notes and tannin. Thin body (for a stout) with a pleasent bittery aftertaste and a slight alcohol warming sensation.

Can’t really add anything insightful to what’s already been said. This is loaded with coffee. One jet black pour too although no head on mine. It is a good stout. Want to compare it with a Wake and Bake though.

Wow. This beer is wonderful. It certainly lives up to its name. Very strong coffee flavor, and aroma. Full bodied, good stuff.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head leaving little lacing. Strong aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Strong coffee flavor that is in your face, tastes like drinking black carbonated coffee that is strong. If you’re not a fan of coffee you probably won’t like this. Very good in my opinion.

rich coffee taste with a burnt coffee back end. Rich aroma and a slight chocolate taste. Good coffee stout.

Mmm coffee... most true coffee flavor in a coffee stout I’ve tasted so far. Smells and tastes just like a nice creamy cup of iced coffee. Slight roastiness and a little chocolate, but mostly coffee and lots of it.
