On tap at Alís / Pizza Boy. Really amazing coffee to the nose along with cream, vanilla, and milk chocolate. Great coffee and body is exquisite. Creamy with light vanilla touch. Compares very well to Terryís Double Coffee Stout while at Bullfrog.

Growler shared by Terry. Pours opaque black with a medium, creamy tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and heavy coffee, dates and figs, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, heavy coffee, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

black with thin ring. Coffee rules nose, huge after Earl with some ash, faintly green. Front palate is all coffee, seamless transition into a chocolate mid palate, light grinds and bitterness through the full, sweet decadent end. Best coffee beer Iíve had in years.

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours thick dark black coffee with a big creamy dark cocoa colored head. Aroma brings the coffee big in the nose with roasted malts and dark cacao. Flavors are rich with big coffee and chocolate on a creamy thick but not overbearing body. The coffee is so smooth and not bitter at all, blended perfectly on every sense.

This one poured a very dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma was of fresh roasted coffee poured on top of milk chocolate, inviting for sure. Flavor was big ridgy chocolate notes up front follow by a smack in the face of freshly brewed espresso. Not green pepper notes, no sign of alcohol, perfect mouthfeel and Carb level too. A damn good coffee beer.

Almost black in color, deep brown head. Rich coffee notes, chocolate, light roast. The coffee is the star and itís a phenomenal tasting coffee. Great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Growler: very, very dark brown, basically pitch black as it sits in the glass with some deep ruby at the edges only. A light-tan head with a greyish tint shows low retention and leaves little lacing behind. The aroma is big and heavy; huge coffee beans, dark and roasted while lightly sweet underneath with bits of cocoa on the back-end. The dense coffee and balance of roasty vs. sweet is awesome. The taste is just the same - a perfect balance of roasted coffee beans and milky coffee sweetness with a little bit of chocolate that resonates in the finish. Very light hop character mid-palate, with some ashy and dry hops. Would like a little thicker mouth feel, but itís still nice and creamy. One of my favorite coffee stouts - even better than FBS.

Growler from the brewery. Jet black with a 1 finger tan head. Aroma is delicious coffee grounds with a hint of chocolate. Taste is coffee forward with a hint of chocolate. Caramel finish as the beer warms. Light fudge and marshmallow notes poke their head out. Bitterness from the coffee perfectly balanced by the sweetness of chocolate and caramel. Solid thick mouthfeel. Slightly sticky and surprisingly strong carbonation. Really excellent.

Growler pour. Black pour with tan head. Huge roasted coffee aroma. Flavor is dominated my super roasted coffee. Wish I could substitute this for my morning coffee.

Growler - pitch black pour with mocha head. Nose of heavy roast and tons of coffee. Maybe a hint of vanilla. Taste follows the nose with lots of coffee. There is a little sweetness to it that really puts this over the top. One of the best pure coffee stouts I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
