On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown wad and aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is strong and full of flavor, lots of roasty coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and alcohol with a long, roasty coffee finish. Heavy mouthful, syrupy texture. Delicious brew, alot of strong flavor packed in

Pours a black color w nice Brown head. Aromas of big chocolate and coffee. Flavors of sweet roast and a mild bitter coffee send this beer over the top! Amazing!

I would be happy to drink this beer starting at 6am every morning. The mellow (dont take that too seriously) coffee flavor blows me away more and more with every sip. This beer has more integrity of flavors than I’ve ever expected. The nose is soft but the flavors will overwhelm you!

Draft at Syb Pig in Boca. Snifter. Pours a complete opaque jet black with one of the darkest mocha heads ever. One finger. Aroma is powerful with chocolate, vanilla, expression, marshmallow , and roasted malts. The taste is also powerful with cocoa, dark chocolate, condensed milk, mocha, sweet malt milkshake, and vanilla. The body is one of the fullest I’ve ever experienced. Thick lactose with a sweet, yet bitter coffee finish. Light carbonation. My only complaint is that’s it is very sweet. I live it but one is all I can take in one sitting.

bytemesis (4136) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Growler with huge thanks! Pours opaque black with a deep brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasty, anise, molasses, cocoa, tobacco. Flavor is the same, light to medium sweet, medium bitter, nowhere near as sweet as other CCB impys. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, which is typical of CCB impys. Wonderful beer.

Growler from bytemesis, big thanks. Completely black, lots if brown foam initially but it leaves quickly. Good lacing. Molasses, coffee, dark chocolate in the nose. Huge bitter coffee and chocolate flavors, molasses too. Exceptional beer, the bitterness of the coffee works very well to balance the sweet malt.

Draft at Proof. Inky black pour with a small brown head. Deep rich, velvety chocolate, blooming coffee, vanilla cream and rich malted roast. Thick, chewy body with flavors that mimic the nose. So fucking good.
