Start your day off right. This beer is infused with "cold brewed" Caribou Coffee. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with big roasted malt aromas and flavors. The coffee comes through almost cappucino-like with some chocolate notes as well.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left exceptional lacing. The aroma was strong ground coffee and cream. The flavor was fairly sweet coffee, vanilla cream and a bit of toasty malts. Very long sweet coffee and cream finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite nice.

Super black - no surprise there. The scent ism what you'd expect for a stout, and has a slightly odd note to it. The flavor isn't as strong of coffee (or anything else) that you'd expect. The alcohol is a bit evident in each sip. Overall, I'm not as impressed as I expected from the name, descriptions, or prior ratings.

Draft at Dutchís shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, coffee, light roast, soft finish, a bit too sweet and not enough coffee pop. Give me their hoppy stuff any day.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Pint on tap at Dutchís. Near-black color. Thin khaki head. Decent dots and bits of lace, kind of loose. Satisfying big coffee aroma -- mild roast, more on the sweet side. Butterscotch, berry type coffee flavors. Mild milk chocolate. Bigger sweet taste, kind of tingly sweet on the back end, mild bitter. Medium plus body. Kind of slick. Lighter kind of soft crisp carbonation. A decent coffee stout overall, with a satisfying amount of (interesting) coffee flavor, but itís a bit too sweet for me. I prefer a more dry coffee stout, like Stoneís Coffee Milk Stout. 7/3/6/4/13

Update rate, 4/28/15: Few visits to this, on tap at Dutchís again. Black color, with a thin khaki head, leaving great thick ridges of lace and swaths of lace. The coffee is great in this. Good creme type flavor to it too. A bit sweeter, but not bothering me as much as it seemed to last round. Enjoyable enough to keep me coming back.

Dark and stormy. Not bad. Unfortunately served in a tiny glass. Pretty heavy on the coffee and smoke

Growler from miketd, Pepsiedcanís Growler Swap Part Awsome-Dark pour w/no head. Strong coffee aroma. Strong coffee flavor, a little chocolate & roasted malt mixed in as well, but mostly coffee. One of the stronger coffee flavor brews Iíve had. Could almost use a bit more malt/alcohol to smooth it out just a bit, thought it was a tad bitter, but still a very nice brew. Thanks Mike

Aroma: Smells like a fresh pot of coffee with hints of chocolate and possibly sugar. Appearance: Black with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Taste: Slight bitterness with a light sweetness to balance. Palate: Medium-full body, watery texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: If this wasnít carbonated, I would swear I was drinking iced coffee. Now, that being said, the coffee may have been a bit overpowering, but I still think this works as a beer.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Draft sample. Poured clear dark brown color with an average brown creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate ground coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer would go well with a cigar.

Nephilium (1702) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2012
(Growler pour) This begins with a wonderful roasted aroma, with strong coffee notes. The color is an opaque black, with a large light tan head. Creamy mouthfeel, with coffee, chocolate, and roasted notes. Mild in body, and an easy drinking beer. This is a nice solid coffee stout that Iíll be getting more of.

On tap at Fat Heads CLE on 2/4/12, Pour is into a tasting glass so no real head, however the beer itself is what youíd expect taste is nice and coffee, finishes like a cup of black coffee.. reminds me a lot of coffee bender. not as much body as iíd hope for but still really tasty and @ 5.5% its drinkable en mass.
