wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Tasted on 6/23/14 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle sent to me in a trade. Pours a very thick, nearly black, dark brown with a thick, smooth brown head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is almost exactly like a mocha with a touch of vanilla, plenty of dark chocolate, deep, dark espresso, and plenty of roast with a hint of vanilla. The flavor is the same sweet-ish vanilla tinged mocha with tons of milky dark chocolate and bitter, deep espresso. The body is super full, one of the creamiest beers I have ever had, with average, but smooth carbonation, and a very long touch of vanilla, mocha finish.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle: Deep brown, nearly black color with a toasted beige head, slightly frothy, creamy, & quick to recede. Aroma of French pressed, French roast coffee. Very rich, deep, dark, & semi-bitter. A touch of dark malt sweetness balances the huge roasted aromas, but also adds another element of char in the periphery. Body on this one is super creamy, velvety, chewy, & silky... Wow, excellent mouth feel. Huge coffee flavor up front. Good mix of "bitter-roast" & "creamy-sweet". A touch of booze, licorice, dark cacao bean, & plum hangs around the outside, but roasted coffee beans are certainly the star of the show. Really nice coffee beer.

22 oz bomber. The pour is a dark dark brown with a thin tan collar of head and no lace. The area is pretty big on coffee. There is a great licorice on the nose backed up by a little booziness. The malts balance out well, and this is just a good smelling offering. The flavor is decent. There is a lot of chocolate malts up front, rolling through a good licorice and into a great coffee induced aftertaste. This is smooth and rich. The mouth feel is a little light, but the soft carbonation helps it come across a really creamy. I like how the booze is well hidden and you don't get the same level as in the nose. Well done, but could be a little thicker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small ring of tanned head on top. Aroma of loads of coffee, light caramel and some booze detected. Flavor has loads and loads of coffee, caramel, molasses and has a quite bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced, very decent.
