On tap at WOB. Pours inky black with a thin mocha head. Big espresso coffee, cream and sugar aroma. Big malt body with lots more coffee and residual sweetness in the taste. A wonderful dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 On tap at the brewery. This thing...man...I don’t even know what to say. HUGE espresso and fresh ground coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate and more coffee. Huge creamy body, solid black. Thick. Flavor is booming with coffee bean flavor, vanilla, chocolate, and sweetness. Lactose? There has to be some in this thing. Excellent brew.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 On tap at the brewery, nitro tap. Huge coffee and chocolate in the aroma coming off a dark brown creamy head. Bittersweet coffee flavor and full body. Chocolate sauce and more coffee. No sign of the 9.2% ABV. Just awesome. Very sweet. Wow.

Dark dark pour. Milk chocolate cream head. Aroma STRONG coffee grinds. Taste like chocolate syrup and has the mouth of syrup coffee, toffee, caramel. Heavy.

Lots of coffee on the nose with a touch of vanilla and dark fruit. Flavor has a great balance. The nitro gives it an extra texture which is great. Not too dry as described by the style. Nice beer

Had this on draft in the tasting room. The beer was put on NITRO so it was creamy with a nice frothy head. The coffee flavor was abundant along with a strong dark malt build.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 This beer is intense! So much in-your-face coffee that it is like sitting in a world-class cafe while eating fresh, warm brownies. The taste is full of delicious coffee and fudge with a syrupy texture to it. The finish is like an espresso soaked Tootsie Roll with a bit of vanilla and heat... as expected. Nothing short of a typically amazing CCB stout.

On tap at CCB on 8-7-2013. On nitro, pours jet black with a beautiful tan head. Love the nitro! Nose is coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Taste follows with the creamy texture that nitro provides. Great beer!

Draft into a snifter at the brewery. Coffee and toffee aroma. Dark with a quickly fading thin dark tan head. Mocha ice cream and vanilla. Smooth thick soft mouthfeel. Very clean finish.
