Draft. Clear brown body. Frothy, big-bubbled, off-white head. Enticing aroma of espresso, roasted malts, milk chocolate along with grapefruit and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and livecly carbonation. Nice coffee taste backed with chocolate, nuts and vanilla.

Bottle shared with Mikkel. Dark brown almost muddy pour crowned with a tanned head that only slowly fades. At first the aroma reminds me a little of a good old fart.. but after that first impression the caramels are revealing itselves with lots of coffee and bitterness. The taste has likewise lots of coffee with a sweet edge. There are some smoke and some vanilla notes on top of that.. The palate is a bit to light to balance the taste. I guess I miss some body here. The finish is bitter, roasty and a little sweet with vanilla and leaves lot of coffe powder...or yeast behind.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draught @ CC. Nose is roast, espresso, brown sugar, light hops. Toasty, roasty, some light espresso ( Iíve been drinking a lot of straight espresso lately). Very solid and tasty brown. Although not as geekified as some of the others on draught, this was probably my favorite drinker. Best brown I have ever had.

32 oz. growler from smith4498- thanks again, Jason! Pours a hazy brown color with some reddish tints and a small beige head. Notes of tobacco leaves, espresso, roasted caramel malts, nuts, coffee grounds, and earth. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, leafy mouthfeel and fairly low carbonation. I enjoyed this one a lot, after initially worrying that the espresso would be offputting to a non-coffee drinker like me.

drewbeerme (3895) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2010
growler, thanks kan! pours light brown with small off white head. aroma of coffee and vanilla, nothing too exciting in the nose. thin body leads to a soft vanilla, coffee, and hazelnut profile with an ashy finish. really watery and thin, probably my least favorite CCBC beer Iíve had yet.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Hand-bottle from a fellow man to waste his life and education on the tuba: Mr. Danny Rowland. Pour is black with a small off-white head. I suspect it lost some carbonation in the hand-bottle. Aroma is great. Dirty, black, bitter coffee with just little chocolate. Itís everything I wished I was drinking in the morning. Taste is more dirt and less coffee. The coffee is still fantastic, itís just not as good following the brilliant smell. Feel is a little thin to support the huge smell and taste. Finish is just as good as the aroma.
