Tap at Florida beer invitational! Black pour no head tan ring. Aroma of roasted grain and coffee. Slight sweet notes and bitter chocolate. Taste similar with chalky texture. Big beer but balanced.

Thick viscous black pour. No head. Chewy. Slight vanilla as it warms. Coffee is subdued but present. Very yummy. ---Rated via intercellular device

On tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach, Fla, pours a rich dark black color with a small head. Nose is roasted malt. Taste is rich in deep bittersweet chocolate ( like a piece melting in your mouth ) with strong espresso notes. Nothing but flavor and taste. Finish is bitter sweet and longs for another sip. Thanks CCB..quaff score 9 / 10

Growler, thanks Seth! Glugs out of the bottle with a motor oil-esque consistency. Big, black body tarnishes my glass a la Zhukov.

Hugely roasty malts, coffee, and chocolate pummel the nose and make their way to my palate. Tastes like liquid, bittersweet chocolate. Damn, that is good.

Massively viscous body delivers toffee and caramel alongside the baker’s chocolate. Full coating of my mouth with each sip. Minimal bite; virtually zero boozy warmth at the end. Probably wise that I shared this with about a dozen people because otherwise it would’ve all gone straight to the dome. MOAR!

Pours like motor oil with chocolate lacing. Very thick, almost like Hunaphu thick. Tastes like sweet coffee.

suprchunk (2244) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Black pour from the growler. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of malt and roasted barley. Taste is the same, a little sweeter than I thought. Not too bad.

Growler shared by Dan. Aroma is pure roasty chocolate. There are some subtle chocolate milk notes shining through as well. Pours thick and black with a small thick dark brown head. Tastes like a chocolate shake only sweeter. Pure milk chocolate, vanilla bean, and a roasted espresso taste. It is so sweet, though, that it reminds me of eating a Wendy’s frosty. My wife would love this one.

Smells just like a strong cup of coffee in the morning. Delicious beer. Heavy and lots of head. Let sit for a minute and then enjoy the taste even more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 On tap at the Coffee District. Dark brown pour with a chocolate head. Dark roasted malts and black coffee aromas. Sweet but still roasty with chocolate, dark roasted malts, lactose, caramel, and tangy black coffee. Great body with an above average mouthfeel. Re-Rate (original rating 4.1). On tap with nitro at CCB. WOW, what a freakin’ difference. It not only knocked out the tang from the coffee, it totally changed the mouthfeel. Way more creamy and smooth. Very rich with a hint of peanut butter. FANTASTIC. Nitro is the only way to drink the beer......
