On tap at Proof. Near black pour with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet roasty malts and coffee. Tastes are dark chocolate, sweet milkiness, bitter cocoa, little earthy. Slick texture, cocoa bitter. It was very good, but I was expecting crazy stuff given the other ratings. 7.6

On nitro tap at Tall Paul’s (FL). Pours essentially black with a very creamy tan head that has excellent retention and a full coat of lacing on the glass - perfect. Smell: coffee with faint roasted malt and chocolate. Taste: Dark roasted grains under cafe con leche, as one might expect from the name. A bit too sweet. Feel: very smooth; medium-light body. Overall: recommended for fans of sweetened cafe con leche.

Draft. Nose full of roast and coffee. Black pour with a very tightly bubbled light brown head. Taste initially is sweet like a creamer up front that reveals some espresso and roast to dry out the finish. Pretty damn good.

Pours a hazy brown on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave a light lacy cap. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is less sweet and more roast than the nose, bittersweet finish. Another solid offering from CCB.

Thanks so much for the handbottle tpd975!, thanks Greg. Shared with dalekliz, this one goes out to Sayid on lost for its badassness. Porus black with a light brown ring. Nose is sweet, and has a ridiculously strong coffe, and for that wow what a nose. Taste is out of this world coffee, with big sweet bitterness and a wallop of coffee. This is excellent and I’m glad I saved this to share with Liz. According to Liz "this is like Sayid because its sexy, smooth and really dangerous!". Excellent. and I don’t even drink coffee.

had the last remnants out of a keg in additioin to the bottled version at CCB. thanks joey.... pours an almost black with reddish brown edges and medium tan head.... sharp, assertive aroma of coffee beans with semi-sweet chocolate... assertive espresso and roasted coffee flavors intertwined with a sweet stout base and dark chocolate fudge. smooth and tasty.

Draft at the brewery, courtesy Joey & Wayne. Pours just about pitch black, perhaps showing a hint of mahogany at the outer reaches. A thick, spongy, light brown head displays excellent retention, leaving gobs of sticky lace on the glass. The aroma is knock your socks off espresso, roasty as all hell. Being married to a Cuban woman, I am used to this aroma on Sunday mornings, as the little *cafetera* is always brewing up some Cuban Coffee. After the initial blast of espresso, the nose opens up to reveal malted chocolate, scorched caramel, and heaps of earthy hop bitterness. Flavors follow suit, again incredibly roasty and very accurate in interpretation of a Cuban Coffee beer, complete with a lightly acrid finish. I will note, however, that the name implies that there is lactose in the brew, which I was unable to detect. Nearly full on the palate, with a silky mouthfeel and light carbonation, even the body resembles that of a perfectly roasted cup of espresso. This is a really nice brew, especially for those with a penchant for hearty coffee, but I think the addition of some lactose would improve things overall and bring things more in line with both the name of the beer and the sweet stout category.

This is realllllly tasty stuff. Tons of roasty esspresso and sweet vanilla bean with a smooth silky body. Sweet but not cloying as it fades to great coffee flavors. This is a beauty.

Had out of the fermenter right before they kegged it, thanks Bob! Pours a thick jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of rich coffee, lactose and chocolate. Taste is coffee, cream and chocolate, very rich but that doesn’t stop me from wanting more. Man, is this an amazing coffee stout.
