Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2013
from Erzbierschof - black beer under a persistent dark beige foam; correct lacework; very roasted maltiness with a strong aroma of coffee and ashes; hints of vanilla stay in the background; full-bodied and pretty thick; creamy palate, solidly bitter, fair notes of vanilla appear in the finish along with more coffee - robust and well-made

Dogbrick (11311) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #112 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Inky black pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, semi-bitter chocolate and caramel. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Good beer all around.

hopdog (11274) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2013
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with an off white head. Yep, lots of coffee - nice, I like coffee in my coffee beers. Dark fruits, vanilla, and chocolate too. Medium alcohol in the finish.

crossovert (11095) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Belgian-pour produces a huge, creamy multi-hued tan head that slowly dissipates. The smell is nice, coffee, brownies, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Flavor is bittersweet through and through. Ashy coffee and malts, a bit of booze. I like the ashy astringency but the high sugary booze character blending with it can be too much at times. A solid beer htough. I think the cherry oak treatment of this beer was the best so far.
