On tap at BX Beer Depotís CCB Tap Takeover One of my favorite beers of all time. Lactose, freshly ground coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and solid roasty notes to it. Surprisingly balanced between sweet and bitter. Very robust and complex, makes for a great digestif

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Black pour, brown head. Loads of coffee, creamy flavored, lactose. Reminds me of a Cuban coffee. Awesome!

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.

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 doesnít stop me from wanting more. Man, is this an amazing coffee stout.

Great roasted flavor....nice coffee smell.....I thought it was like a milder Wake N Bake...a little sweeter.....perfect for me, but then again, cafe con leche is my favorite coffee drink other than Vietnamese iced coffee

Tap at the brewery. Finally he to try this! Thick black pour with a creamy thick head. First had it on Cask, then on another night on tap. Great Stout!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Two words describe this beer best, YUM. Well, maybe one word. But its yum squared. It pours very dark with light brown head. Good gravy, the aroma is amazing. It is full of robust rich dark roasted coffee beans that nearly bring me to my knees. Wow. Behind that are notes of dark chocolate and a touch of heavy cream. The flavor does not disappoint. I love the full rich decadent yummy very dark roasted coffee. Too many coffee flavored beers just smell and taste like Folgers crystal, meh. This beer has the goods with mouth watering espresso like coffee beans that I need to find and start making coffee with as soon as possible. Like the aroma there are supporting notes in the background like velvety dark chocolate mixing with a mildly drying lactose sensation that play together in harmony with the bold coffee notes. Wow.

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!!!

Brought this back from the brewery compliments of Wayne and shared with my tasting group.... Coffee anyone? At cap off the sweet and bitter espresso aroma filled the table. The color is as advertised Black and the mouth feel yummy. I think the milky part is surprisingly balanced like a good barrister would pour at your favorite coffee house. To date one of my top 50.
