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.

Opaque black stout. Light vanilla nose. Palate is light and a little crisp. Sweet burned vanilla malt - quite airy. Minerals. Finishes soft and pretty dry. A distinctive beer but the Southern Tier is casting a long shadow here. Still good though.

(Bottle, courtesy of Pailhead) Pours a opaque black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of candish cream, chocolate, and roastiness. Flavor is sweet and somewhat taer with mild roasted malt and coffee finish. Interesting...

opens with a loud pffft, pours solid black with a huge solid tan head, rich roasted espresso aroma with a hint of sweetness, very lively mouthfeel with the abundance of carbonation but eventually settles down and becomes creamy, rich roasted malt flavor, light coffee bitterness hiding a slight tart edge, very dry, not a complex flavor, just a good dry stout with a big coffee edge, goes well with dark chocolate covered espresso beans

Draft at brewpub. Poured a black color with an average light brown head that diminished slowly and produced good lacing. Heavy vanilla and caramel coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky creamy texture. Full sweet roasted malt flavor with a moderate finish. Good brew.

Deep dark stout with no head. Torrefied coffee with vanilla notes in aroma. In mouth, just burned coffee, with no hops, no sweetness. Rather thin in mouth. Mondiale 2005.

Draft... This beer rocks!... Pitch black ale with a creamy, well-tanned head. Excellent retention. Smells like rich Crème Brûlée; vanilla beans, heavy cream, brown sugar and all. The flavor is a blend of coffee, brown sugar and nuts without cloying sweetness. Lightly acidic. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes chocolaty and tangy. Different, world class brew!

12oz bottle acquired in trade with Styles (thanks!). Bottle labeled best before 8/4/05 & bottled on 4/4/05. Poured a dark black with brown edges and an averaged sized brown head. Aromas of lactose, chocolate, coffee, and light vanilla. I was really into this aroma and it reminded me of a coffee latte. Tastes of light sour milk (is that because this bottle is a couple months past date), bitter coffee, and caramel. Tastes a little bit of a let down compare to the awesome aroma.

Sammy (8678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 terrific brewed coffee aroma, and very nice appearance. The rest of the experience is average. There is vanilla, some woodiness, but surprisingly sour. A fresh newly bottled beer, thanks to Tim (IPFreely) for sharing

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.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Sample at the "Beer Tasting on the Front Porch", courtesy of JaBier. Pours brownish-black with a medium light brown head that recedes steadily. Patchy lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma with a mocha note. Rich and sweet body with flavors of coffee, caramel, vanilla and malt. The finish is sweet caramel with a mild coffee aftertaste. Definitely a sipper, but the coffee aspect definitely keeps it from being over the top sweet like Southern Tier’s version. A great beer overall.
