It poured a deep, dark brown yielding the same color body with a large foamy off white head in my nonic. Some nice speckled lacing spider-webbed around the sides of the glass. The smell had the coffee up front with light hints of chocolate and roasted malt. The taste was lightly bitter with the coffee holding its own in the forefront, moderate amounts of chocolate and roasted malts present themselves acceptably and balanced. The palate was about a medium to light, almost a bit watery, but mainly balanced. It was smooth all around and very drinkable. It left a dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is definitely a beer for coffee lovers. I would come back to this.

Bomber. Pours a very deep near-black brown with a slight tan head. Big fairly fresh roasted coffee aroma. Taste is huge, fresh roasted coffee. Almost too much. Not enough of a beer-y, malty backbone to balance things out. Comes off too sweet and bitter.

Bomber. Pours deep dark brown with a tan head.Huge coffee aroma followed by intense coffee and chocolate flavors so I guess you could say mocha. Mistakenly poured this with dinner and it wasn’t doing it for me but then pulled it back out with a carrot cake desert and suddenly it was delicious. Definitely have to be a coffee fan for this one though.

Draft at Brixx Greensboro. Pours coca cola brown with a half inch of khaki foam. Nice coffee notes on the nose. Big, big coffee on the tongue which I happen to like. Finishes clean. Very nice!

Large light brown head of fine bubbles. At least 2 inches thick. Strong coffee and dark chocolate aroma with a bit of ash and more coffee! Color is a very dark brown bordering on black. Wow, massive coffee up front that lingers for the duration but diminishes as you go along. Body is a bit thin but still full flavored. Dark roasted malts, burnt toast and a bit of bitterness late swallow. No real alcohol presence. This is basically coffee with a bit of alcohol. Not my cup of tea if you know what I mean. Ha ha! A good brew if you like coffee. Too much coffee for my tastes though.
