Ratman197 (9710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Poured an opaque dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of strong black coffee, heavy roastiness, bitter chocolate and a faint hint of vanilla. Palate was full bodied and smooth. Flavors of strong coffee, big roastiness, bitter chocolate and a bit of vanila hiding in the background with a smooth lingering roasty coffee finish.

Tap at Redlight at RBWG 2010. Pours a deep dark oily black with a massive sticky bright orange head and good lace. Aroma is insanely fresh powerful coffee, clean roasted, not dirty, herbal, fresh, creamy, nutty light chocolate, and just smooth fresh coffee and big espresso all around. Flavor is intense coffee, fresh roasted, bright, with hints of leather, chocolate, tootsie roll, sweet toffee, caramel, roasted barley and a cream smooth fresh coffee finish with a moderate bitterness from the roasted grains and coffee. Smooth as silk finish. Awesome!

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Medicine bottle from SoLan. Thanks man! Very strong burnt coffee nose, sharp roasted acidity. Oily black, slick in the glass with no head. Strongly rich, little white vinegar on the edge. Dark and heavy chewy coffee, double strength french pressed madness. And yet there’s that vinegar component. Contrasting but not really complimentary, though it takes on more of an under-ripe character later on which was more pleasant.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Giant aroma of coffee, dark and roasty, dark fruit is there but mostly sharp acidic expensive poop coffee with just a hint of dark chocolate. Pours jet black, no head, no lace. Not that great looking. Sharp strong coffee, very acidic, almost overly cofee-e. Dark fruit, dark chocolate and more acidic overly assertive coffee. Super full borderline syrupy body, very soft carb. Super acidic and bordering on unpleasant. There are people rating this a 5? Seriously? Maybe they were drinking something else? Maybe I’m on purple drank? But this isn’t that good.

Medicine bottle. Thanks clint and alan. Pours jet black, headless, laceless, and completely still. Huge sharp intense rivening coffee nose. Acidic, almost berry-like aromatics. Funky and acrid. Sticky thick body. Still. Soy sauce, prunes, roast, and coffee on the mid palate. Long sticky coffee and black olive finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6851) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Pours milk shake like consistency fudge brownie with lasting firm mocha head. The aroma is bold rich hugeness pulsing with perfectly highly roasted coffee to go along with rings of sweet dark fudgy chocolate and dark roasted malts. This is rich decadent aromatic yum. The taste is rich dark roasted coffee somehow conveyed on a near creamy mouthfeel pulling up supporting flavors of velvety rich dark chocolate, roasty malts and some burnt malts. Wow, balance – depth – decadence – D-Lish!

50th rating. Growler shared by DuffmanSW compliments of laroja. Poured a dark brown with light brown head. Aroma was awesome with lots of coffee, vanilla, prune juice, cinnamon spices. Taste was bitter roast coffee, pungent, cinnamon, burnt toast, and chocolate bars. Thick beer with good carbonation that coats the glass. Overall this was very very good.

From a CC growler. Black color/ lingering light brown head. Insane, awesome, medium roast coffee aroma with chocolate, vanilla. With out a doubt the smoothest, richest mouthfeel ever in a beer. Fantastic fucking flavor of rich, smooth, light roasted Kona coffee on Zhukov’s deep roasted malt and chocolate base. Until i sample The Shit, THIS is Thee Shit. Thanks again Ira for sharing!
