On tap at Capone’s. Poured a deep brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of lots of coffee...coffee grounds. Tastes of coffee and roasty. Yep, a coffee beer for sure.

Flip Top growler thanks to michaelpollack. Pours black. Tan head. Nose is freshly brewed coffee, vanilla bean and roast chocolate malt. Very rich and full nose. Taste is the same, but a bit muted. Body is on the thinner side, but still satisfying.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
750 mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of bitter coffee, coffee grounds, sweet malt finish. The taste is roast coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, sweet malts and a mild hop note in the finish. Medium bodied. Decent, well balanced.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Thanks to JaBier for sharing a swingtop bottle. The beer pours dark brownish-black with a thin tan head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lace. Smells pretty much like a cold cup of coffee, plus a touch of malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter coffee character and notes of roasted malt. The finish is roasty coffee with a lingering bitter java aftertaste. Good brew overall.

750 slim bottle. Pours hazy dark brownish black with tan head. Nose is roasty choc and patent malts, heavy coffee, hops. Tastes roasty and dark malty, with a big coffee flavor, some hops, and an overall bitter black coffee flavor. OK, not great.

Swing top 1L bottle. Pours deep brownish black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is big coffee grounds, jalapeno oil, black malt, very much like Bell’s java in the nose. Tastes bitter, with big coffee flavor, black malt, and some hops and cacao. Medium palate heft, smooth, and delicious.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a tan head that fades over a very dark brown body. Huge aromas of coffee, roast, vegetables and black pepper. Flavors of molasses, brown sugar and a ton of coffee. Somewhat light mouthfeel with medium bubbles.

Big ol’ flip-top. Poured deeper brown with a tall, nice-looking smoked beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, lightly-roasted coffee, toffee, and lesser biscuity notes.. soft overall, and I loved the coffee they used in there.. a bit earthy. The flavor found the same sweeter, earthy coffee throughout.. just a little bitterness and sour, ripe coffee beans around.. more coffee stuck on the long, tasty finish. Medium-bodied and fairly well carbonated on the palate.. well-balanced and tasty.. not the most complex brew in the world, but I’d drink it any night.
