Basically black with extremely thin but lasting tan head. Smells like cold rich coffee. Tastes like a cold cup of coffee with light cream in it. The bitter from the coffee stains your mouth.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with medium tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted sweet coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

22oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Shared with tmoney99. Black color. Thin light brown head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Awesome nose... Big coffee; creme brûlée aromas. Medium body, lightly chewy. Good, smooth, lighter carbonation. Light slickness, kind of dry too though. Good moderate sweet taste, nice light to moderate bitterness to balance it out. Nice caramel, light chocolate flavors, along with the coffee, light vanilla. Good coffee vanilla aftertaste. Very tasty stuff.. Better than expected. My type of stuff.

Dark black with an orange hued head, and a full pour! Smells of wet paper, and orange flavored chocolates. This is supposed to be a coffee beer, i’m not getting it other than the finish. Flavors are roasty goodness, very light caramel, more hops(mainly pine like and light citrus) than it needs. Coffee is mildly discernable in the finish, but the bitter dominates and covers all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear dark brown body with a short-lived tan head. Roast and chocolate malt dominant nose. Mild hop aroma opens up more as it warms. Bitter bakers chocolate and roast are the focus; seems semi-sweet; very toasty and a bit husky and rough. Burnt grains all over, but the seemingly dry body and cocoa powder flavor makes it enjoyable. Carbonation is medium to low, syrupiness becomes more apparent as it warms. A few swirls and it’s lost and the body seems more watery and thinner and the raw apple jelly and malt syrup flavors show through.

Bomber from Corti Bros. Pours black with a slight dark tan head. Aromas of milky chocolate and coffee. Med body or better. Flavor starts with really dark coffee, followed by a smooth burnt malt. The chocolate has become only a hint of flavor. Good beer for breakfast no doubt.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavy black with a small thin beige head, even when poured semi-vigorously. Roasty dark aroma of a fresh bag of store-bought coffee, and toasty dark cocoa...overall the nose is a little acidic and smokey and has just a waft of burnt popcorn. Flavor is medium bodied with a general earthy roastiness, cold press coffee flavors and acidity, and bittersweet dark cocoa...kinda meh. I really wanted to like this beer but it’s kinda too smokey, not enough java buzz or chocolaty sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with fine tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, nutty, mild coffee roast. Flavor is roasted, dark malt, mild coffe with a pleasant chocolatey finish. Coffee flavor is not particularly strong, may be disappointing to those looking for a hearty coffee stout. That being said it is still quite tasty. Soft carbonation, medium body, and a smooth texture. A chocolatey, smooth stout.
