Bottle thanks to retorp. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Yellow laces like crazy. Nose is a ton of espresso, roasted malt, chicory, and the bitterness inherent in those. Flavor is a lot of coffee and espresso flavor, but balanced overall. Lots of different roasted flavors in the beer, and it refuses to be pigeonholed into being labeled a "coffee beer." I swear it has the caffeine to match, too. Very good beer- will stand up with any of the top ten coffee beers.

Rich black with tan head. Anyone familiar with Cuban coffee will instantly recognize the cafecito looks. Aroma is bang-on cortadito, but better than coffee. Creamy luscious mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated and smoother than a nitro pour. Finishes with a cream flavor, a sly nod to the leche. The flavors are long, lingering with a deep roasted bean flavor permeating each sip and perpetuating throughout the drink. Actually--this is a perfect rendition of a coffee brew. Impressive.

On draft at brewery, poured a dark black color with a little tan head. Aromas of freshly brewed coffee, light milk, and some cream. Flavors are robust coffee, light roasted malt, and sweet milk. I have been waiting for this one to come back on tap for a long time, and it did not disappoint. Another solid stout from CCB.

Special tap at RedlightRedlight I think it sold out in less than 24 hrs. Pours black with tan head that recedes rather quickly. Aroma of coffee... nose was stuffy so couldn’t make out much more unfortunately. Slid down thick and sweet, great body and mouth feel. Subtle coffee notes combined with roasted malts. Thought this was a really good stout, will get it again if I ever stumble across it.

Bottle courtesy of Retorp. Pours a dark black color with no head. Aroma is pure freshly cracked roasted coffee beans (that I could smell the minute the bottle was opened). Flavor is almost exactly the same with some hints of vanilla and cream with fainter notes of raisins, roasted malts and spice. Full body with lingering coffee finish. If you like coffee beers, this is the granddaddy of them all.

Re-entering older ratings. Une bière légère brune; couleur café au lait et c’est exactement ce que l’on retrouve tout au long de la dégustation. Une présence de stout qui est agrémentée par ce fini café au lait allant sur le lactose avec des notes de caramel, malt grillé et bien sur le café Naviera qui est enivrant.

Good stuff here. Nose is pure, fresh brewed coffee with chocolate. Pour is black with a light tan head. Flavor is iced coffee, with some roasted notes and chocolate. Very good.

@ New World Brewery in Ybor. pour black with a dark brown head. aroma is heavy on coffee. flavor is sweet, as expected. lots of dark espresso roast, milk and brown sugar. a bit of hop bite on the palate, somewhat oily finish. aside from the sweetness, this is an amazing stout, and a must for any coffee drinkers.

Nitro draft. Aroma of fresh coffee and dark malt. Pours perfect from the nitro with a thin dark tan head. Taste is super smooth stout up front leading into coffee. Finish is ver well rounded and clean but with a hint if the coffee. Really good.
