Can from Justin. pours a very dark brwn to black with garnett highlights and minimal head. Coffe in the nose with some dark chocolate and whiskey. Taste is abundantly coffee with some slight burnt character, but just the right amount. Carbonation is a bit low and there is a slightly thin mouthfeel that I see in a lot of coffee beers. overall, very good

Poured into pint. Smells woodsy. Taste smooth going down, just like roasted goodness. Hints of chocolate without the sweetness. Soft on the palate when tasting.

Can picked up at CBB ages ago, haven’t seen any Modern Times around lately I hope they’re still importing it... anyways, served in a snifter this beer pours a reddish cola brown pour that’s black in glass with a foamy beige head. The aroma is roasty savory coffee. Medium-full bodied this beer has tons of coffee bean flavor, roasty, some milky sweetness then more coffee. A pretty good coffee stout with a smooth mouthfeel.

From: BevMo! in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $9.79 for a 4-pack
Purchased: April 26, 2014
Consumed: April 26, 2014
Misc.: Use by Aug. 16, 2014
Poured a pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Average amount of spotted lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average-to-minimal retention.
Smelled deep, dark, coffee malts, coffee beans, dark chocolate, light smoky woodfire, burnt marshmallows, toffee, caramel, fudge, dark cocoa and roasty nuts. Pretty damn bitter. Just a fantastic smelling coffee stout.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got rich coffee malts, coffee beans, smoky fire, dark chocolate, fudge, toffee, caramel, dark cocoa and roasty nuts. That’s all good, but it seemed a little artificial to me, which knocked it down a peg or two.
Full-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
I really liked this beer. Would love to have it again.

black pour. Coffee grounds and roast malts on the nose. Nice and roasty, with a nice coffee flavor that is a great compliment. A well done stout

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml can. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color that has a small khaki head that has fair retention. The aroma is ripe with coffee and coffee grounds. The taste like the aroma is all coffee set in a slightly nutty malt base. The palate is full and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent, but lacking a certain robustness that I would have liked.

Thanks to my boy Weezel. Color is jet black with tan head. Aroma is strong coffee but strong in the good way. Chocolate comes out great and lingers in the palate.

Awesome pour with a deep but slight translucent black. The coffee aroma is up front and powerful but not overdone. The taste is cold brew coffee, biscuit, a hint of bitter chocolate and a smooth finish. Super smooth, easy drinking yet very refined. Well done.

Draught at the brewpub in San Diego. Black beer with a decent beige head. Coffee aroma, roasted, malty, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa toffee, espresso, creamy notes. Hoppy roasted flavor, coffee, hay, vanilla, toffee, caramel, licorice, some dark chocolate. Nice body for the ABV.
