Pours a dark cola, lots or carbonation and no head. Minimal aroma of cola? Slightly nutty brown malt taste with light roast. Thin mouthfeel, limited aftertaste.

12oz can: This one pours a fairly opaque brown color. There was a finger of a tan head on it that didn’t linger long. Nice nose to this one. Nutty, chocolate, some roast, breadiness. A faint sweetness. The taste is quite good. Chocolate, nuttiness, some caramel malt, slight sweetness, faint coffee. A nice beer!

Solid coffee tasting beer from a kick-ass brewery. I’m not personally a coffee drinker and I don’t always like beers that have this kind of profile, but this isn’t too strong. It’s deep brown, but the smell and the taste don’t overpower.

slight aroma of toffee. Taste is toffee, tart berries, caramel and chocolate. As it warms, the berry flavor fades and more pronounced espresso, vanilla, and cinammon flavors dominate.

Dark mahogany body with crimson highlights when held to the light. Aromas include roast, brown bread, smoke, earth, nuts, leather. The flavor follows the aroma. Light to medium in body. Lingering hints of coffee and a hint of bitterness. Good stuff.

rajendra82 (1011) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2015
The dark brown pour had the look of cola, which was emphasized by the fizzy carbonation, and the short lived head which rose to no more than one finger thick. The aroma was that of a fine chocolate with a touch of cinnamon. The taste was less interesting than what the aroma hinted at. There was some chocolate in the taste and some coffee and toffee as well, but the body was a little thin to truly support the flavors. There was some vanilla and cinnamon in the finish, with a light aftertaste.

Kroney (252) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 12, 2015
BIF project 2. Appearance: deep dark brown, decent lacing. Aroma: muted aroma of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, roasted coffee beans. Taste: similar to aroma. Muted. Good flavor, just a bit light. A bit of a "smoke" thing going on with the aftertaste. Palate: good carbonation, weird lingering aftertaste. A bit astringent. Not bad, definitely not great.
