Growler from Daknole, man what a great guy. This one is almost black and has a chocolate brown head. I certainly get the coffee and chocolate. Smells amazing. Sweet and delicious.

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!

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!

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......

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

zgaier (1412) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2013
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

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.
