willisread (2174) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2015
Tap at BCS. Deep brown with no head. Burned coffee, piney hops and roasted malts on the nose. Body is thin and watery on the palate. Some light roasted vegetables. Bitter and astringent finish with burned malts and espresso. Harsh finish. Needs some work.

Bomber from Mega Foods. Black in color in my goblet with traces of dark amber. Nose is coffee and hops. Lots of coffee. Nice hop presence as well. Definitely a hoppy brew. Huge coffee flavors as well. Nice balance of the flavors. Good coffee beer.

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.

kathouse (1525) - Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2015
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.

after4ever (7411) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2014
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 (16262) - 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.
