Sample at the brewpub. The beer is an oily black color with a medium beige head that dissipates to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roasty coffee in the nose with notes of malt and chocolate. Rich and smooth body with flavors of bold coffee, roasted nuts, malt and chocolate. The finish is black coffee with a lingering dark malty aftertaste. Very good beer all around.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 On tap at Jackie-Os, served in a snifter. Black color, awesome thick and creamy brown head leaving froths of lace. Amazing, super strong and spot-on coffee aroma, crests up and then back down through the aftertaste. Nice bitter taste... A lot like a good strong concentrated Turkish coffee. Light, smooth roasty texture, amazing aftertaste. This is a mind-blowing beer. I think this is on the same level as Founders Breakfast Stout (which I love very much) Edit: In retrospect, this is way beyond FBS

Draft at Jackie O’s (12/2011). Pours dark brown /black with a small beige head. The aroma is coffee forward with roasted malts, nuts, dark chocolate and some honey sweetness. The flavor has everything from the nose; a great blending of the strong coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, nuts and honey. I think its the mouth feel and body of the Oil of Aphrodite that helps it pull off the various treatments so well.

JaBier (4888) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Sample at Jackie O’s 6th Anniversary Extravaganza on 12/3/11. Pitch black pour with a medium light brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and walnuts. Chocolatey flavor with nuts and coffee before a roasty, almost ashy finish. Very delicious.

Beerman6686 (4324) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
This poured a straight black color with a small tan head. Aroma was almost just straight deep dark roasted coffee with light chocolate notes floating in between and some herbal and cherry notes too. Flavor was much like the aroma, deep Kopi taste, very invitined and not overly sweet. Alcohol is well hidden as well.

draft... quite excellent but the coffee dominated and I didn’t get any of the roast nut I like in the oil

64oz growler thanks to bc. requested and received. thanks my friend aand much appreciated by those around me.... pours a deeper sense of mostly opaque black stoutiness with brownish edges and medium beige head that eventually retreats, leaving a medium film around the edges... aroma was potently coffee-centric upfront but kindly gives way to more of a complex profile with roasty nuttiness and even moreso dark fruit and a honey dependency. evolves to more of a strong coffee bean offering to more of the latter mentioning characteristics... flavors are more of the same although maintaining a moderately sweet coffee focused, light roast, and honey based malt profile which combined well with a fluffy yet somewhat full bodied experience. a soft level of carbonation combined well with the aforementioned. totally a different beer as it warmed to room temperature and enjoyed through each spectrum. some warming is also noticed after warming. would def have again if given the opportunity.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Poured on draft into a sampler glass. Appearance is black with a thin ring of tan foam around the sides of the glass. Aroma is rich, smoky, chocolatey coffee with just a hint of nuts. Taste is that same beautiful kopi presence initially found in the nose. This is one beast of a beer yet on I feel like I could have had several of these. I hope to get another chance to have this beer.

Sample thanks to Urbancaver.

Nice. Nose of coffee, almost nothing else. Palate offers subtle nutty meatiness, rich black coffee (without excess bitterness), solid brew.

Poured from a 64oz growler, thanks to Kan for blessing me with this gem. Poured jet black with medium carbonation and tannish head, nose is major coffee, some chocolate and roast. The flavor was just amazing, big, bold, punch you in the mouth coffee, I could wake-up to a cup of this every morning. Finish was smooth and rich, I’ve loved every variation of the base beer and this one was set the bar even higher. Best coffee beer that I’ve had yet!
