A: The beer pours thick and black with a somewhat small mocha head. S: Enormous amounts of coffee on this one. Tons of roasted malt and chocolate with more and more coffee. A nice vanilla note as well as a touch of caramel and toffee. T: Vanilla and roasted malt make a brief appearance before being usurped by the incredibly powerful coffee flavors. Some creamy dark chocolate along with a touch of caramel sweetness. M: Medium to full bodied with a smooth feel on the tongue. O: Just awesome. Easily the best Cigar City beer I’ve had.

Nitro, RBWG. Large mocha brown head atop black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee, some raisin/cherry, bittersweet chocolate, cream. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, raisin, some dark chocolate. Smooth/creamy full body with alcohol well contained. A pretty amazing Coffee IS, though I guess this rating makes me a homer.

(Nitro) Pours an opaque black body with a creamy khaki head that provides a spectacular cascading effect in the glass. The head was so creamy you could tell who was drinking it with their tan mustaches. Aroma of dominating coffee, roasted malt, raisins, and chocolate. Flavor is massively coffee and roasted malt with chocolate, toffee, raisins, and molasses with a creamy mouthfeel. Probably the best mouthfeel I have experienced in a beer.

Ratman197 (11520) - 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.

Huge thanks to PapFather. Pitch black with a medium deep beige head. Sweet aroma with coffee, hard roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavor was ever so smooth with burned malt, dark rich chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Finished balanced not the slightest to sweet. Lovely!

Are you "shitting" me? Holy mother of coffee beers. Black pour, creamy dark brown head. Aroma...the best coffee and chocolate combo this side of the Alesmith Speedway Kopi Luwak. Tons of dark chocolate, vanilla, rich(and I mean RICH)coffee. Flavor is just loaded with the creamiest combo of chocolate and coffee I have ever tasted in my life. So rich and bold. Stupid good. Best mouthfeel of any beer I have ever had. Seriously.
