Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Smells of roasted malts and chocolate. Aroma is coffee and chocolate qith some roasted malts on the back end. Body is very full and creamy. Taste is on the sweet side but again reminds me of coffee. This is more enjoyable if you let it do its duty than if you try to figure out how to classify or describe it. A satisfying substantial brew. I’m glad to have picked up 6 of these.

Pour is jet black with a think layer of dark brown bubbles, not even a head really. Nose is of coffee and booze. Taste is a little bit more subtle, clocking in with a lot of coffee flavor, and nearly gets in bitterness from that instead of the hops.

Chalsk (1064) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2012
On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a dark black color with caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, slight coffee roast and earthiness. Sweet creamy caramel taste with dark fruit underneath. Coffee spice. Nice hop layer. And vanilla on the back end to smooth things out. Booze comes through slightly. Very solid.

nbondi (201) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Almost black with creamy tan head. Nose of coffee, grape, cinnamon. Somewhat subdued. Medium-heavy body with good carbonation. Coffee is understated with more sweet, fruity notes than any other coffee beer I’ve had. Tingly carbonation finish, with some lasting smoke and coffee.

Draft. Loads of rich chocolate and roasted coffee balanced by some hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Pretty much a template for strong coffee-influenced stouts.
