22 ounce bottle shared thanks to my buddy Josh. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is rich coffee roast and earth. The taste is coffee roast and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle shared by the guys. Thanks! Pours a deep black with a dark brown head. The nose is nice, shows a big hit of creamy coffee, on the mellower cocoa side. Some roasted barley and toasted malt as well. Light hopping. On tasting, the coffee is much weaker. Some faint ashy notes, char and cocoa. Herbal coffee. Would like a bigger hit of coffee flavor to match up with the nose. Decent. Bit thinnish body.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle with a big thanks to Ken. Pours dark brown with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Nose is big and bitter espresso, vanilla essence and pepper and spice. Taste is very espresso like, moderate dates, big tobacco, rich and burnt brown sugar sweetness. Very ashy. Balanced ok for a big coffee beer. Not bad

AdamJackson (3370) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
dark brown. lots of coffee and vanilla. Taste is okay but very peppery, like duct tape and very bad coffee. seriously, having all 4 abductions side by side, what in the heck, guys? Why are these so bad?

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2013
22oz bottle. Thanks to the guys... Pours with a slight stillness upfront with a deeper stouty black hue, lesser intense edges with auburn tones and topped with a thin wispy medium khaki head... Aroma of of chocolate and coffee notes upfront, sweet molasses and brown sugar through the middle. Coffee is most dominant with the chocolates fudge aspects not too far behind... Flavors are more of the same with a foreboding sweetness through the middle as well as through the finish where a light bitter astringency fortunately cuts through. Earthy and fuller bodied with an adequate level of carbonation.

17-MAY-2013, bottle @Řlbutikken with Ulklřbben. Dark, dark brown with low tan head. Hard roasted aroma with dry coffee, vanilla and molasses. Taste the same. Dry coffee, and more coffee. Nice full body and average carbonation.

_angst_ (3284) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours brownish black with a rather small frothy and fizzy mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, lots of sweetened dark roast coffee, vanilla beans, dark chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies, hay and hints of green chili and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet liquorice candy, burnt cookies, alcohol, charred wood, vanilla essence, soy sauce and hints of green chili. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly oily, round, roasted astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies and hints of green chili and soy sauce. Good but a bit unbalanced...

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Batch #66. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty awesome. Lots of espresso and fresh coffee, but plenty of the base to keep things balanced. Rich chocolates, resiny and citrusy pine hops, roasts, and a bit of a vanilla cream showing up. Flavor is big and bold with lots of espresso, citrusy pine hops, rich milky and dark chocolates, roasts, and some more vanilla cream. Finishes moderately bitter with lots of citrus pines, plenty of coffee, a good amount of roasts, and lots of plump chocolates. Lengthy aftertaste following a full, very smooth body and a creamy, medium-light carbonation. Overall, this was pretty damn good and by far my favorite from these guys yet. Big and rich with plenty of citrusy hops and roasts from the original, but lots of coffee that compliments the base extremely well while never overpowering. Drink this one fresh to get the most out of it. Awesome beer.
