This is by far the best "coffee" beer I’ve had. Recently got it on tap as a fresh pour. Truly amazing. Kudos to Left Hand for giving the little guy a chance to get a great beer out to the world.
Coffee flavor is great, good bold dark feel and taste, aroma is understated but nice, would have liked for it to have smelled of a cup of espresso.
Oh - served in a brandy snifter, slightly acidic and poor as poured (ice cold). Held to be warm (slightly under room temp, guess at 50 to 65 deg) and became a vision to behold.
As always, knowing how to serve the beer, makes the beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Rackhouse - dark brown pour - looks like cola - fizzy body, but zero head - nose is coffee heavy, but with a lot of sweetness surrounding it - smells of cream, sugar, I swear I even smell brown sugar and maple - fizzy in the mouth - some nice coffee notes, but the overall flavor is very sweet and sugary - kind of tastes like Cuban coffee - try that stuff sometime - they give you a tiny cup and black coffee that must have about 100 teaspoons of sugar in it - when done right, it can be tasty - this beer doesn’t taste like one done right - far too sweet, so the rich flavor of the coffee is swallowed up - meh.

Dark black pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and cocoa. Taste of huge coffee, chocolate, caramel. Higher carbonation giving it a crisp mouthfeel although creamy and slightly sweet, very good stout.

Deep black with a thin khaki head. Roasty nose of toasted chocolate malts, a touch of caramel and toast. Sweet and creamy flavor with chocolate, truffle creme, and a gentle cafe-con-leche tone. Delightful, if a bit simplistic.

Draft at Pony last night with James and Paul. Pour is black, head was light-colored for a coffee beer and pretty small. Smells great, good fresh coffee aroma. Impressed by the taste as well but it was a little too subtle for me to give it more than a seven here. It wasn’t extremely memorable to me but I did enjoy it.
