On tap at 23 Craft Beerz Nagoya. Dark brown with a creamy head. Very potent acidic coffee nose and flavours. One-dimensional, but interesting.

On tap at a local pub. Great flavor, but I am a sucker for a CDA! Pleasant burnt flavors, hoppy aroma and perfect color.

Dark cherry colors with a tan foam. Aroma of coffee and piney malts. Decent body but light roasted flavors have little hop support. Some bitterness in the finish.

22. Pours black with minimal foamy fish-eye head and light lace. Dark bitter nose, some 80+% type dark chocolate and plenty of campfire and resin. Not really a distinct profile there. Light, watery-ish body with sluggish carb. Roasty, resiny, dark chocolate-y mid palate. Earthy, dry, roasty finish. Not very organized.

Theydon_Bois (12569) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 10/11/14. Mahogany brown with a well appointed beige covering. Nose is earthy roast, tangy red berries, mineral notes, grapefruit, earthy hops, trace of coffee. Taste comprises earthy hops, red berry pangs, more prominent coffee than on the nose, spice, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid CDA.

mikedR (1552) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Very, very nice. It’s a little watery up front. But the hops give way to an amazingly nice coffee back end. Plus, I like saying "Gilgamesh."

Fatehunter (1642) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on an almost black body. The aroma has chocolate, coffee and a little lemon and pine. Nice blend. The taste has a nice moderate pine bitterness throughout, the coffee and roasted malt in the background provide a good balance. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Solid.
