Very dark with a lasting head. Smells of fresh ground coffee beans. Medium nectar with excellent carbonation. Heavily roasted and totally dry this brew makes for a nice cup of java at the end of the day.

Tastes like coffee, I don’t like my beer to taste like coffee. So, screw you.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured quite deep brown with a tall, creamy dark tan head. The aroma picked up moderately-roasted coffee and nutty malts, with earth and a little burnt malt beneath.. enjoyable stuff. The flavor found burnt coffee, molasses, and a touch of honey at the core.. ashy roast and coffee bitterness and sourness surrounded.. finished dry and grainy, with more coffee grounds than anything else. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with a lot of coffee and a lot of roast.. just a decent feel and flow.. overall a solid drinker.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting, beige head, over a dark brown (SRM 35) body....nose is light coffee, bit of chocolate, cereal, smidgen of toffee.....taste is heavy coffee, bit of chocolate, bit of toffee/caramel, finishing bitter....mouth feel medium, carbonation also. The coffee dominates over much. It is just a coffee, flavored dark beer. The other ingredients are almost hidden. BJCP 7/3/10/4/6

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I love coffee beers so I am looking forward to this one.
The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the coffee with some roasted malt. One of the heavier coffee smelling beers that I have tried.
The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of coffee, but I also get some bitter, roasted malt and a little bit of chocolate mixed in.
Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
A very nice coffee beer but not one of the better ones I have tried.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with thick creamy tan head and foamy lacing. Pleasant notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. There’s a bit of an off-taste. It’s not really bitter, but the sweetness of the malt is lost in the coffee, leaving a sort of blandness. It is smooth and creamy on the palate.
