I do love coffee and good coffee but this just doesn’t do it for me. The coffee smell and taste is there but perhaps too much of it that kills the rest of the beer. Subjective I know but still does not take away from a fine beer and I won’t allow that to detract too much from the ratings.
This is still a lovely, thick, coffee, malt forward beer with chocolate and a little bitterness.

Pours a deep pitch black, almost like dirty motor oil. Aroma is coffee, and rich dark chocolate. Taste is, like the aroma, rich dark chocolate and a notable (but very good) balanced bitterness. Awesome beer. Coffee, and rich maltyness is also present.

Bottle. Pours black with dark tan head. Aroma is heavy chocolate, fresh coffee grounds, lots of aroma. Taste is very coffee, not too dry - not too sweet, great carbonation and great chocolate. Really good.

4-pack from some generic store in Indianapolis called Payless Liquors. Pours a dark brown with a thumbnail of frothy tan head that never fades. Tight lacing. Big nose of roasted coffee and cocoa beans. The mouth is absorbed in more roasty nuttiness with notes of roasted nuts, toffee, espresso, enormous malts, caramel, more chocolate, and subtle syrup. Huge body and medium carbonation. The ABV is hidden well besides the enormity of the flavor itself. Very nice!

This beer has everything. Pours thick black with a light tan head. Aromas of oats, coffee, bitter cocoa. Sweet creamy flavour and.texture. Initial chocolate flavour is rounded out very well with coffee and charred malt bitterness and slight alcohol. Not too oily, medium carbonation and excellent mouthfeel. Hard to fault

Great drinking beer. Personally better than KBS. Much more smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorite beers.

Sente-se o álcool, mas na medida certa para o estilo. Aquecimento alcoólico lembra um bom whisky. Toque salgado a partir da segunda metade surge como charme e diferencial nessa caprichadíssima representante do estilo.140 s

From a bottle to a glass. Taste is coffee, malt and coffee. A little less than I was expecting given all the hype. Still a very good beer.

Appearance - espresso color beer, mocha head good lace
Aroma - roasty coffee, creamy, oatmeal
Taste - roasty coffee, cream, cocoa, oats, espresso
Mouth - heavy, full, alc completely covered, aftertaste roasted coffee
Overall - great beer, used to think it was too harsh/roasted. With 6 months in the bottle it seems smoother and more creamy.
