fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Black color with medium sized head. Aroma of cold coffee. Dry mouthfeel, less strong than expected; flavor of stale pot coffee with some bold resiny hops.
Coffee beer? Maybe not a great idea.

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bomber from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours very dark brown/black with a foamy tan head. Smells like fresh roast coffee. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is fresh coffee with dark, smooth toasted malt. Nothing subtle here. Nicely flavored brew.

daknole (9486) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Dark brown pour, beige head. Roasted malt, chocolate and a good dosse of coffee. Flavor is roasty and has a flavor of spent coffee grounds. Not bad.

Dogbrick (8688) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Sample at the Seattle brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium to full body with a roasty character and flavors of black coffee, malt and hops. The finish is dry with a lingering roast coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2010
Thanks to Eric for the bomber! Poured translucent coppery-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, light-medium roasted coffee and chocolate with earth, vanilla, and touches of darker spices and smoked meat when you dig really deep.. soft-ish overall impression that wasn’t "imperial" in nature, but would be great for a standard stout. The flavor found more of the coffee than chocolate, and it carried all the way through the drink.. some vanilla sweetness too.. dry-roasted coffee bitterness and some earth around.. a little coffee sourness on the finish. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. the alcohol was well hidden.. this was a smooth-drinkin’ stout, but again it wasn’t so imperial.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy malts, dark roasted malts, earthy coffee and a dash of sweet malts. The taste has nice layers of dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and earthy milk chocolate along with a smattering of malt sweetness here and there. It approaches being burnt with black patent malts midway and into the finish. Pretty nice, this.

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet dark grain and vanilla with a bit of coffee and roasted malts underlying. Flavor is more coffee forward and is backed by sweet dark grains, sweet chocolate and vanilla.

Draft. Blackish beer with a dark cream head. Malt and light roasty aroma with light coffee. Chocolate and coffee flavor wit caramel. Medium bodied. Coffee and caramel lingers with light chocolate.
