750ml bottle. Pronounced intense coffee aroma. Black-brown with a thin, oily head. Super coffee forward. Tasty and nice, but a little one-dimensional because it is so coffee rich. Well executed nonetheless, an awesome sipper. Smooth and sugary. Nice.

Jow (2272) - New York, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Found a random bottle at Nikkiís in RI. Tastes of burnt coffee, milk, chalk, hay, herbal, caramel and earth. Nose is kinda funky with small head. Slight alcohol flavors and a touch too watery. Just allright

Tasted on 8/18/11 from 750mL bottle obtained in a trade, batch E!016. Pours a nearly black, dark brown, with an average tan head that slowly recedes to very thin, spotty lace. The nose is full of freshly roasted coffee, along with a ton of roasty malt and just a bit of underlying vanilla. The flavor is lightly sweet with a hint of molasses, dominated by freshly roasted coffee, with just a hint of bitterness, and vanilla. The body is full and creamy with light, but stinging, carbonation, and a long roasted coffee with a hint of vanilla finish.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown in color with a small fleeting beige head. The aroma is slightly burnt black coffee, roasted malts and dusty dry chocolate. The flavor is thin black coffee, some burnt roasted malts and chalky chocolate powder. Very thin body which doesnít go well the the black coffee flavor. If this had more body to support the flavors, I would probably enjoy it more.

Pours deep brown into a snifter. Cola head crackles and recedes to nothing. Espresso aromas. Dry with chocolate milk and espresso front to back.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
dark brown, thin beige head gone fast to tepid. Heavy green beany note, lots of bitter ash. Been and roast with chocolate finish, light malt and coffee through but too toasty and lightly worn out, oxidation certain.

Bottle shared by MrChopin. Pours black with a medium, fizzy beige head, short retention with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (roast, chocolate, coffee), light hops (herbal), and average esters (fruity) with notes of wood, raisin, prune, peppers, oxidized, and licorice. Flavor is heavy malt (roast, chocolate, coffee), light hops (herbal), and average esters (fruity) with notes of wood, raisin, prune, and licorice.

patrick767 (3611) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2011
bottle at RBSG 2010 - Pours dark brown and smells heavily of coffee. Unfortunately itís more like coffee grounds than a good roast coffee. The taste of more of the same. Thereís some roast malt in there but any other flavor is overwhelmed by a stale coffee ground taste. This beer does not work. Just bad.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip glass. Color is very dark brown bordering on black with a tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward a pretty good dose of roast and coffee with a little bit of chocolate in there. The flavor is coffee and chocolate and has a nice bit of cream, which is quite nice in the mouthfeel. Good carbonation and body. Drinks fairly well, but a bit too roasty with the coffee being a tad bit burnt. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2010
