COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale beer, made with real coffee. This java stout goes through a unique process, involving caramelizing brown sugar to give it an intense caramel & vanilla aroma.

Vanilla and brown sugar-- just creme brulee and coffee really in an easy drinking stout. These guys kill it.

Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of intense caramel, chocolate and a bit of vanilla. The taste is sweet malts, roasted malts, coffee and caramel. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 On tap at the brewpub; pour is dark brown with a marginal off white head; perhaps a poor attempt at a pour to begin with? There is some very fine lacing present here as well. Creme brule is very present here; roasted coffee, vanilla beans, brown sugar; yeah. This may be a malt bomb but im loving it. Vanilla beans, roasted coffee, caramel, brown sugars, cream; excellent.

Growler. Poured into a tulip glass a dark, forboding black color with a thick tan head. Very, VERY coffee and vanilla in the nose, one of the most decadent aromas outside of Southern Tier I’ve had in a long time. Medium mouthfeel. The java coffee flavor domintes the start to this but after a second a nice sweet vanilla note joins the flavors and pairs nicely with the coffee. Slightly roasty and dry finish. Some chocolate notes as well. Overall, pretty good.

I fist thought I was smelling coffee the aroma was so pungent. The body was dark and filling. Dark chocolate and coffee taste.

On tap at HopCat. Served in an imperial pint glass. Pours a moderate brown color with quite a bit of haze. Single-finger off-white head with a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose is quite nice with a lot of cream and vanilla plus a good deal of coffee. Some roasted malt lingering in the background. The flavor is a bit too cloying as the vanilla and cream start to take over a bit. Still, nice flavors lingering in the background and I like the addition of the coffee, which makes this much, much more drinkable than Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy and the sweetness works here. I like this version better than the Imperial. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-02-2011

a more restrained version of the imperial this comes across with less creaminess and more burnt coffee, its ok but if available side by side with the imperial like I had it going with the imperial

(beer tasting @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY: Growler) One of the highlights of the tasting. Dark black motor oil pour with a thick tan head. Big coffee aroma. It smells like a freshly brewed pot of coffee. Flavor is big coffee with an equally big vanilla and caramel flavor. Thick body and creamy. It really tastes like coffee mixed with hot chocolate and caramel. Absolutely amazing.

smells like a Kamel Red Light cigarette. chocolate, marshmellow, mint, one of the best smelling beers i’ve ever had. now the taste - not so much. no carbonation, burnt toast, & rubber. i should have just smelled it.

On tap at blind tiger with LaCroix. Nose is awesome, a lot like southern tier creme brûlée and java... So maybe more like mochka. Awesome... Lots of java.
