Good full body, decent head on pour. Malty, robust, alcohol smooth not as harsh. A hard nudge more than a kick.

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle picked up from the brewery and split with Sarah in the hotel. Dark brown / black coloured pour with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma is earthy roast coffee, slightly ashy bitter roast, some hot alcohol. Flavour is semi sweet, earthy roast, ashy, bitter roasted barley, harsh bitter coffee. Warming alcohol. Palate is full, slightly creamy, moderate carbonation. Little boozy in the finish.

JulienHuxley (5204) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
Sample on tap at the brewery. Black pour with off white head. Aroma is lightly smoky, roasty, chocolate. Taste is sweet, chocolatey, a bit watery. Palate is med-light bodied, a bit thin, strong carb.

weihenweizen (2627) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2016
On tap at P&P Charleston. Translucent dark brown with medium/big light brown head. Fruity dark malt, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste roast, fruit, some alcohol, and slightly bitter finish. Is this a quad or imperial stout, not that good for the style.

Dacrza (737) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2016
DATE TASTED: January 15, 2016... GLASSWARE: Victory HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: Book Bingo down, Shark Tank and Cavs/Rockets to go... APPEARANCE: jet black--as cappuccino should be--with a thick, creamy brown head that begins as a two-finger froth and finishes as a half-inch hedgerow with high-arcing branches... AROMA: goodness, burnt toffee and toast with cappuccino, lactic hints of milk, dough and earthy hops that are drowned out by the brackishness of the bean... PALATE: a velvet-smooth sip, with the textured finish that makes a medium-bodied, dry finish--drinkable, warming and chewable... TASTE: roasted is the word, as every breath suggests a burnt bean... the milkiness is present, but a balance is struck with peat and earthiness; confident and full... OVERALL: surprisingly not as nuanced as I had hoped.... a beer that warms up to the evening, but does not further its cause... at $4.99, a fair price for a full-bodied, high-alcohol ale that furthers the Lagunitas profile...

Pours darks, with a brown head. Can smell and taste the coffee. Overall a decent beer but not my favorite.

That is one sturdy stout from aroma to taste. Pure coffee hop aroma with a brown head. This is a coffee beer in terms of taste!! Count-Chocula!!
