Bought at a local specialty brew shop. Pours dark with a tan head. Immediately there’s no mistaking the ’coffee’ smell. Tastes like a high quality cappuccino! Had a somewhat dry finish. Absolutely fantastic. Like coffee? Like beer? LIKE THIS!

Bottle with the doge on my lape. Pours black with a ring of tan head. Aroma is tons of coffe, some roast malts. Taste is cappuccino up front, minda heavily carbed. A little weird.

BillHick420 (456) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours pretty close to vantablack. Small beige, tight head. Nose of dark roasted coffee, dark bitter malts. Aroma of the same, warm. Full mouthfeel, some effervescence. Emjoyable. Would work well with a full bodied cigar.

tekstr1der (343) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2016
I love the brewery, yet I’ve grown tired of coffee/bourbon stouts. With that in mind, so as not to skew judgment, this still lacks in every area. Pours dark with dissipated head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is weird, with chemical strangeness amongst coffee beans and cocoa. Finish is okay, but I’ll pass on this.

On draught. Pours black with a small tan head. Nose is coffee,chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste follows nose. Not bad,but nothing special.

2016 bottle: 9.0% abv. Bomber from Wine Warehouse, $5.79. Pours black with an inch of beige head. Taste is dirty coffee grounds, lightly sweet chocolates, ash, earth. Pleasing.

jeffreylee (17) - HHI, South Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2016
A very pleasing coffee flavored stout. The pour is coffee dark with just a bit of dark tan foam. You can smell the coffee, but its not overpowering. The initial taste is rich stout with notes of roasted hops and coffee while caramel and roasted hazelnut comes thru as it sits on the tongue. The finish is bitter with coffee lingering.

A nice, mild stout. The cappuccino flavor is very apparent and coffee notes add to the overall roasty character.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Draft at Whole Foods Champions Houston TX. Pours deep black with a tan head. Big coffee and chocolate nose that drinks the same. Nice full body with toasty malts that goes down very smooth for 9% beer.
