Intriguing aroma of vanilla and coffee with a thin black appearance, decent taste but minimal mouthfeel. Drinks more like a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a borne color, huge foamy head. Strong harsh coffee aroma, light chocolate and vanilla notes. Watery, metallic, astringent, roasty, coffee grounds.

Bottleshare thanks to dextercate. Nose of string coffee and chocolate with some burnt. Taste is not good. Like burnt rubber and astringent. Not pleasant. Ugh.

Not a coffee fan so I only had a couple ounces. Weak beer. No need to ever get unless you like coffee ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit of a gusher on the pour. Ara very mild and mostly vanilla te flavor is terribly thin. Not sure if something happened to my bottle in transit or of this is what it is meant to be but these guys are usually better with the big beers. Thin texture and a bunch of vanilla. The stout aspects are faint with a touch of roasty malt. Not much else to say.

Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is a good strong mix of coffee and vanilla. The taste is a little over carbonated. Strong coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by jmborggren. Dark brown color. Not opaque. Thin bubbly white head. Coffee aroma. Something like lake-water? Not much coffee in the flavor, but it’s a light roast, more vanilla in the flavor. Vanilla flavor is very bean-like, less extract-y tasting. Nice light sweet taste, little bitter. Little loose lace. Smell isn’t too impressive, but aroma in the aftertaste is nice vanilla. Medium-plus body, softer, lighter carbonation. Little watery, little thin in the body. Good vanilla flavor, but a little thin for me, overall

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren- thanks again, Jeremy! Pours an amber-brown color with a small beige head. Aroma starts with coffee, then earth, vanilla, toast, and chocolate. Flavor starts with vanilla, then coffee, dry toast, and chocolate. Medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel. Hits the coffee and vanilla notes but doesn’t come together quite like it should. More of a coffee ale than a stout.

chinchill (1378) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2013
on tap at Duckworths (NC) Pour is dark mahogany, a bit light for the style. This lightness carries over to the mouthfeel (too thin), flavor (a bit light, especially in terms of dark malt), and aroma.(again, a bit light in terms of dark malt). Also rather sweet, falling near a sweet stout on this count, On the positive side, the coffee component is more like fresh beans than old grounds, and is in balance with the other flavors and aromas.

Bottle. Appearance is black with white head. Aroma is vanilla, brownie, chocolate, sweet. Taste is vanilla, coconut, and roast. I really liked this.
