NobleSquirrel (3437) - 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.

HonkeyBra (3371) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark blackish color with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, espresso, some milk and dark chocolate. Flavor of coffee, cream, sweet chocolate notes. Some roast and dark chocolate. This is certainly nice. It’s medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lightish carbonation. Pretty nice beer.

pantanap (3357) - 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.

22 oz bottle. Ebony with tan foam. Nose is coffee, lightly smoked molasses, chocolate and vanilla. Thick and creamy with a buzz, almost a whipped mouthfeel. Taste is coffee bean and plum then dark roast and licorice. Woody drying with hints of vanilla.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, 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.

PhillyCraft (3224) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle compliments of Tom shared with a few others. Poured black with light khaki head, not a whole lot of lacing to note. Aromas and flavor of heavy coffee, ample hops, vanilla extract, roasted beans, and bitter dark chocolate. Strong, sticky, and boozey but all in a good way.

TimE (3183) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Dark brown color with thin head. Smells like a ton of cold coffee with slight notes of roasted malt and caramel. Sweet, unbalanced mouth that is over ridden with coffee. Lingering coffee roasted finish. I wanted to like this, but very simplistic brew that went no where

maneliquor (3106) - 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
