Unbelievably great tasting coffee. This would go great with breakfast. The aroma is fantastic, the taste is sweet with the right amount of oils. Overall I could drink this all the time. Thanks to Dave for sharing

Pours jet black. Thin quickly disapating brown head. Nose is milk chocolate, rich coffee, heavy roast, sweet molasses, vanilla bean, earthy grain. Flavor is sweet chocolate malt, roasted chocolate almonds, bitter roasted coffee, sweet espresso with cream, hints of smoke. Finishes dry bitter coffee. Body is oily and full. Absolutely incredible beer.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Courtesy of an amazing savant brewer at Cigar City! Love it! This is an ass kicking experience. It pours very dark mahogany with a mocha looking head of foam. The aroma is ‘mother of god, hide the children’ good with a rich inviting mix of dark roasted earthy coffee beans, molasses and dark roasted malts as well as spicy black strap molasses and a hot melted box of chocolate malt balls. The taste is no different. I get huge smooth rich sweet notes of dark roasted oily coffee notes sweetened up by malts and molasses and bringing up lesser notes of dark roasted malts that toy with a light and playful level of burnt malts. To midway the rich oily dark roasted coffee notes are seemingly joined by some chocolate as it head into the finish. Holy SHIT-storm this is haboob goodness. Thanks Ben! I owe you BIG!

Had on tap at cigar city. Pours a great black with a brown head. Aroma is expresso coffee with nuts and earthy malts. Tasty is chocolatly expresso, malty nuts, maybe a few hops. Overall a amazing brew. Wish I had more

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 Couldn’t believe how good this brew was! The body had a rich black body and thin head. Roasted malts were in the aroma, and smelled like diving into a fresh cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. The mouth feel was smooth with notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee and fresh hops. Finishing with a pretty dry taste, there was an incredible essence of mocha left afterwards. One of Cigar City’s best by far - and I hope to see it again.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Draft at cigar city with Linh. Pours a deep black body with nice hocolate brown lacing. Aroma is a wonderful blend of coffee, chocolate and chestnut. Mouthfeel starts creamy and syrupy with notes of chocolate syrup and coffee. Finishes light, almost like an imperial brown. Great balance.

On tap at Cigar City tasting room. Wow, I was completely surprised by this beer. Tastes like a Cafe con Leche. Very coffee forward but well integrated. Coffee with cream chocolate, vanilla and sweetness. Very nice indeed!
