COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

This beer is amazing! Coffee in the aroma in such a good way. Doesn’t drink too heavy, but definitely has a nice full body. I’ve had on Nitro and from the bottle and they are outstanding both ways!

Pours black with a beige head from the bottle with lots of roast and coffee notes on the nose. taste is bold and full of chocolate and toffee. Not too heavy and loooong finish!

such a great coffee stout, perfect for a morning beer! dark chocolate, some wood, molasses, deep roast (malt and coffee) in nose. Generally black with dark ruby brown on the edges, tan leather head retreats quickly to edges of a tulip and remains there. Big dark/bitter chocolate, some raisin and slight plum give way to coffee, lasting brown sugar finish; origin of bitterness unclear- hops? coffee? astringent but pleasant. Overall a go-to!

Bottle from Ales by Mail. Jet black pour with a tan head. Very nice aromas of dark roast coffee, dates, raisin, licorice toffee and black treacle. Full bodied brew. Flavours of smoke, sweet spice, lots of dark roast coffee and dark chocolate. Dry, smoky finish. Very tasty stuff.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours midnight black with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Good retention. Fat bubbles are scattered here and there. The nose is a luxuriant swirl of brownies, fudge and dark-roast coffee beans with undertones of pouch tobacco and vanilla. Full bodied and silky with tickling carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet chocolate crème flanked by intertwined nuances of caramel and vanilla. Malty, roasty, acrid, cafe con leche finish. World class beer!

doublebock (554) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Appearance: Jet black with tan head Aroma: Nice bouquet of fresh brewed coffee Taste: Strong coffee flavor that dominates the profile with a bitter roast on the finish. Some molasses and a hint of licorice as well Overall: If you are a coffee infused beer fan than you’ll like this but if not this may be too much for you

Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. Moderate coffee comes through in the aroma with supporting chocolate and a subtle toffee. Sweet and a bit roasty. Thicker mouthfeel. Big bodied and moderate carbonation.
