3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one lived up to the hype - the taste was fresh coffee and dark chocolate. The taste was crazy for a beer, fresh cold-pressed coffee with light carbonation. Nuff said. Great shit.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Pours a very evil black hue. The head rises to sky scraper heights and is a very dark brown in color. The beer clings to the glass nicely and the head has excellent retention. Spotty lace is noted.
S: Quite possibly the boldest coffee stout I have ever smelled. To say the aroma is of fresh roasted espresso beans would be an understatement. Bold espresso with roasted malt. Light chocolate notes.
T: I love me some coffee beer and this one is coffee on crack. The espresso flavor is huge right from the start. Has the same jolt as when you eat chocolate covered coffee beans. To be honest this beer really reminds me of just that. Bold espresso with hints of chocolate. A hint of sweet, dry lactose sugar peeks thru in the end.
M: Fuller in body than most coffee stouts with a nice dry bitter finish.
D: Very, I love me some coffee stout and this is one of the best of the bunch. Canít wait for itís release.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow. So glad I found this. On draft at The Top in Gainesville. Deep dark brown/black with a small dark brown head. Smells like a morning espresso with hints of bittersweet roasted chocolate. Wow. Smooth as can be. Almost like drinking chocolate milk. Actually less coffe than expected from the smell. Some nuttiness that is almost like hazelnut. Very sweet and very rich, with a bitter coffee finish. Bitter chocolate lingers for a good while. Thick viscous mouthfeel, as expected. Get this if you can!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap. Pours black with a one finger tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is loaded with fresh heavy roasted coffee followed by chocolate covered malted milk balls. Taste is like a thick double shot espresso with the perfect amount of caramel, sweet malt, and chocolate to balance everything out. Full mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. As Ibrew2or3 put it, YUM!!!

Hand bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! For our game of which Lost character is this beer most like, weíve chosen Sayid - sexy, smooth, and really dangerous. Pours a deep black with a tan ring. Rich coffee aroma, sweet and creamy, with malt, caramel, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Huge taste, lots of coffee, malt, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Lingering rich coffee flavors. Creamy mouthfeel. Delicious.

Bottle, huge thanks to Joey for digging this out. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose has a great balance between roasted malt and coffee. Medium to full body with a creamy mouth feel. Extremely tasty, lots of sweet malt and Cuban coffee with lesser notes of chocolate and caramel. Canít wait for them to make this again.

Nice stout offering from CCB. Pint pour of deep darkness with a deep khaki head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, rich and sharp. Flavor is healthy and smooth, velvety chocolate (dark and milk), smooth caramel and coffee with cream. Great body, smooth. Overall, fantastic. I waited a long time for this one and it was worth it.
