The coffee in this is very well balanced, and actually could be a little more forward for my taste. Very smooth, easy drinking, with a rich, rounded profile and a somewhat less-than-over-the-top palate. (on tap at the Muddy Pig, St. Paul, MN)

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours basically black with a small head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

The aroma is coffee & chocolate with some very light hoppiness. Itís sweet smelling, aromatic... really inviting and enjoyable.

The beer is a touch boozy, itís got some good dark chocolate, itís plenty bitter with lots of coffee and some espresso. Kinda sweet in a nice way...

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Big roast, cocoa, green coffee, oak, bread, and somewhat earthy aroma. Taste is dark fruits, caramelly, brown sugar, light cocoa, coffee, and wood with a light bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very tasty and well-balanced, hard to believe it is 10%.

blklab2007 (2015) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle poured a black in color with a coating of brown head that fell away. Aroma has coffee, mild chocolate, alcohol, and dark malts. Mouth feel is hefty with slow carbonation. Flavor is heavy on the malts, big black coffee, plenty of roast, and dark chocolate. It has an oat like thickness and the coffee is super amped up.

750ml bottle to snifter. Pours oily black brown with a nice khaki tan tight foamy head that slowly fades to a sudsy film and collar along with subtle lacing. Aroma is smooth strong coffee and roasted malt and some hidden bakers chocolate and soy. Taste is great bitter velvet bakers chocolate and coffee along with soy and roasted malt. Palate is full rich and oily along with a chalky dry finish. This is fantastic! Really smooth and delicious!
