Bottle shared by Paul.
Looks like carbonated black coffee. Smells like a cold pot of black coffee. Tastes like cold, iced black coffee with maybe just a hint of roasted malts. Itís pretty one dimensional; dominated by coffee. If you donít feel like drinking a pint of coffee right this moment, consider opening something else for the time being.

If you want extreme amounts of coffee flavor, this is the one for you. Nice coffee aroma but for me itís over the top on coffee flavor. Heavy amounts of coffee make it a bit bitter for me and the aftertaste is overwhelming.

Bottle. Cocoa, ash, and coffee malt aroma - very nice. Dark black-brown color with large tan head. Lightly sweet dark chocolate malt, coffee and ash flavor. Finishes a bit light. Not bad.

Maybe I got a bad bottle but this beer was disappointing. I was expecting a nice frothy stout but got a metallic taste instead. Jet black pour with a medium tan head. Smell is coffee and roasted malts. Flavor was not there, metallic and old coffee taste.

Heidel House Brewfest. Dark brown with off-white/tan head. Light nutty coffee, roast malt, and some dark fruit. Soft, well-blended coffee and roast malt with a light sweetness. Finishes with residual roast and some acidity. Very sessionable and easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pitch black with a light tan head. The nose is strong with the coffee roast and a little bit of anise. There is also a little bit of cocoa. This highly carbonated brew is overwhelming with coffee and roast. There is a little bit of anise behind that massive does of coffee. Orange is noted, but faint. This would be a good tout otherwise, but is just a straight up coffee bomb.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1pint bottle from Armanettiís. Pours a mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fresh coffee with a moderate roast giving off a medium-light sweetness and a nice, milk chocolate malt backing. A light caramel with some bitterness in there as well. Flavor is similar. Coffee and roasted malts up front with a solid chocolate malt backing. Roasts get a bit burnt as this finishes dry and moderately bitter from a solid roastiness, fresh darker coffees, and some earthy hops. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, but smooth and silky body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid coffee stout. Sure, the body is a bit thin feeling at only 4.8%, but it drinks really well and has a nice, light creaminess to it. Lots of flavor to this as well with a solid balance between the roasts, coffee, chocolate, and light hopping. Really solid.

A big black yes black coffee beer. Very nice foamy head. Yes, what else can you say about cold black coffee from start to finish. Lower alky makes this rather drinkable.

This poured a darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of dark coffee, almost burnt like, with roasted malt too. Flavor was almost all coffee, a bit stale tasting, but a nice coffee taste nonetheless.
