12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic vanilla and chocolate with some dark fruit and acidic coffee roast.

The flavor is sweet vanilla with some dark fruit and a leathery roast coffee finish. The mouhfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, itís a bit overly sweet for me and lacking in coffee.

I really thought this would be a lot bolder. Itís still good. But with a name like Kujo youíd expect it to tear you a new one. Aroma is nice with coffee and some faint dark chocolate. Taste is dark roasted malt with coffee and a hint of vanilla. Finish is smooth and tasty with little bitterness. FD--if you ever make another version of this, I want to have to strap on a helmet to enjoy this one, thanks.

StueyD (1358) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
A pitch black coloured beer with a tan coloured head. A strong coffee led aroma, burnt malt, smoky, treacle, chocolate and some spice. Rich and full bodied mouthfeel. A rich bittersweet coffee taste, smoky, treacle and chocolate, then an alcoholic bitterness that brings forth a fruitiness of grapefruit and lime. The finish is rich coffee and bitter sweet.

andyhwcinc (1602) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on the daylight savings time day after a long day of errand running. Appearance is a thick pitch black with a very thin and bubbly dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of dark roast coffee, vanilla, light molasses, chocolate, relatively faint. Taste of roasted chocolate, dark roast coffee, light burn, light licorice. Itís pretty good, nothing too impressive, just good.

I have been looking forward to trying Kujo for some time now and i most say it met my expectations. Has a pleasant aroma of coffee beans with a hint of vanilla. A Taste of strong yet smooth coffee to it.
