No coffee flavor. Very bitter. Aroma was not bad but still the beer was not worth it since they didnít hold true. Tap

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Tap at Barcade Philly.
Appearance: Ruddy brown body with a haze. Short lived head.
Aroma: Light but roasted coffee and sour cherry, weird.
Taste: Holy fucking weird. Sour cherry and coffee. Coffee is prominent by the finish, very odd.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: I donít know whether I like this or not, but itís unique.

Drake (10501) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #203. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a thin fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of coffee, caramel, mild cherries. The taste is tart cherries, vegetal and vinous notes and coffee in the finish. Medium bodied, mild lingering tartness.

Draft. Red brown pour with tan head. Coffee, roasted aromas, some cherry tartness. Coffee and roasted flavors with a touch of dry cherry.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Tap. Clear dark amber to red body with a small wispy off-white head. The nose is huge with espresso and not a whole lot else. Maybe a touch of sour cherry. The flavor is really quite interesting. Slightly tart and sour cherry with a slightly tannic oakiness, but this is primarily about the coffee. Chocolate and coffee on the finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Really interesting stuff.

On tap at bullfrog. Big nose of euthopian coffee. Adds to mouthfeel as well. Interesting complexity the sour and roast.

boxofrane (2415) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours reddish brown with a missing head.. The aroma has tart cherry and plenty of coffee presence. The taste is tart cherry, lemon, grape and has a coffee stout finish. Iím a bigger fan than others so far.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Neat idea but not a tasty style. Aroma is delicious coffee that somebody decided to pour vinegar into. Pours black with not much head or film. Taste follows suit: oak, wine, and roasty coffee with a distracting vinegar finish. Just isnít doing it for me. Needed something roastier or spicier to tie it together.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Draft a Moriartys. Black pour with no head at all. Well ... it?s bizarre. I can still taste the Flemish Red base but cold coffee is definitely the dominant flavor. Sour raisin pie. Charcoal grill. Nice roasted notes. Not for everyone, but good stuff.

draft at Bullfrog. pretty strange combo. Flanders red/oud bruin with coffee. Initial flavors were tart, dark fruits, sour which ends abruptly with a huge wave of coffee. wierd but interesting
