UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Keg at the Craft Beer Co. Pours a pitch black colour with a big brown head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is huge and bold: roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cocoa beens. A hint of tartness as well. Taste is mostly sweet, with chocolate, coffee, roasted notes and vanilla, some tartness again and light hot spicy sensation from the chilli peppers. Bold body with good carbonation. Overall, extremaly enjoyable, flavourful and magnificent. All the ingredients are easily identified, no one prevails and they work perfectly together, amazing.

Coffee adds great flavor and aroma to the base beer. A little thin, but tastes great.

2015 bomber with gold/beige/yellowish wax. Thanks to HOPSareKEY for sharing. The adjuncts are really popping on this one. Coffee, cinnamon, chilli, vanilla, chocolate, fudge brownies. A full on flavor assault thatís blended perfectly. More flavor in one sip than some breweries can offer in their entire lineup. This is the best in the cake lineup.

Pours jet black, like motor oil. Aroma of coffee, taste of coffee. Thatís all there is, loads of good coffee flavor. The rough thing about this is knowing the base beer. This is a solid coffee impy stout but it completely destroyed the base.

50belair (3253) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with a mocha head. Chocolate and cinnamon bouquet. Maybe a bit below the previous two years. The heat from the chills and coffee dominate. Really muted cinnamon and chocolate notes. The body seems a bit thinner.

ctipping (1007) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2015
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Black. Medium khaki head and a thin collar. Stains the glass a little. Strong coffee aroma. Cinnamon equally strong. A bit of green pepper aroma, too. Coffee dominates the flavor. Spices arenít far behind. A bit of dark chocolate before a spicy pepper finish. Medium heavy. Coffee seems to mute a bit of the peppers, which I donít mind.
