UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Growler thanks to mar, via bu11zeye. Pours with a deep brown body with minimal off-white head. Aroma from a mile away is pungent, nutty, coffee. On a actual sniff, espresso ice cream, nuts and cola. Tons of coffee. Taste is tons of coffee (american style coffee). Cold pressed, nutty and deep. Moderate carbonation. Another great, and straight forward coffee beer.

Had this one at the Freetail and Real Ale barrel-aged festival. This is A Beer Called Tim brewed with coffee.
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong coffee with some roasted malt notes. The flavor is coffee, roasted malt and some chocolate. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I think this beer, with the coffee, is better than the regular version.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Freetail. Super rich dark brown with minimal light tan head. Aroma is STRONG coffee - like a fresh brewed pot. Taste is very roasty almost like burnt old coffee. It’s very bitter with a strange aftertaste. Not sweet AT ALL. Smells MUCH better than it tastes.

Smells and tastes of coffee and burnt toast. Not sweet at all. Metal. I would like to add that my husband thinks this is the best one of the day. So don’t take my word for it.
