Black pour with light brown foam on tbe edges of the glass. Aroma is ripped, deep coffee, roasted malt, and more freshly grinded coffee. One of the best smelling coffee beers Iíve had the pleasure of enjoying. Taste is bitter coffee up front followed by dark chocolate (both bitter and soft), some minimal dark fruit notes, and a fairly dry and heavily roasted beer. Iíve had this beer multiple times and it is one of my personal favorites from the Carlsbad brew pub.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad, Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and an enticing coffee aroma. There is a delicious coffee flavor with a heavy duty treacle background. Sticks to the palate.

hivemind (697) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2011
On tap at Pizza Port (Carlsbad) with Andy, James and Dallas for Dallasí bachelor weekend. Black pour with a thin, tan head. Slightly reddish hue. Aroma is roasty malts and no hops. Palate dominated by black coffee. There is a bit of tartness, as pointed out to me by James. Thanks, son. Now get off Ratebeer fgt.

jredmond (5196) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Draft at Pizza Port Solana Beach with Andrew, Brendan and the big boy daddy dad Bachelor, Dallas. Pours a deep black body with carbonated lacing. Aroma is straight up INTENSE black coffee. Mouthfeel is creamy and essentially pure coffee. Taking into consideration how one-sided the coffee domination - it is an incredibly well-brewed beer.

At solana beach. Pitch black pour with no head. Super coffee aroma. Taste is like carbonated day old coffee. Very nice deep Roasty flavor. Couldnít drink too much of this. Definitely a sipper.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Sampled on tap at 1702 Tucson; August 2011
Arrives from the tap with a half-finger thick, nicely browned, dark tan colored head. The beer is a deep brown, though not black color that shows a clear, rich brown around the edges. The aroma smells of huge, rich coffee notes, ample burnt molasses and lots of toasted complex whole grain notes. The mix of dark malt sweetness and coffee works pretty well in the aroma; there is just enough sweetness to keep the roast character from seeming harsh or overly roasted. A touch of roast nuttiness starts to come out in the aroma after the beer has warmed up for a while and at times this smells like a mix of coffee and chocolate liquors.

Thick and viscous as it hits the palate, the beer really sticks to the mouth, even after the beer has been swallowed. The finish has an ample roast and hop bitterness, but also has a really rich, brown malt richness that isnít really sweet, though does approach that. Up front there is a dark malt sweetness that is pervasive, this is minimized by a big roast character, bitterness and warming alcohol in the finish though. Big flavors of dark chocolate, amply darkened brown sugar and that dark malt sweetness play a supporting role to the roast and coffee flavors that are clearly dominant in this beer. After my palate adjusts a bit to this beer it doesnít seem nearly as thick as it initially had, though there is still no doubt that this is a big beer.

Not bad, in fact I can see this being a big hit for those that crave Imperial Stouts with coffee. I am certainly enjoying it, though I likely wonít have the need to ever try this again. The roast bitterness can seem a bit harsh in the finish at times, though this is a typical problem for me in a beer like this.

pours dark brown to black with a tan head. aromas are mostly of coffee, but there are also some roasted malt scents. the flavor is mainly of coffee, in fact it tastes more like coffee than beer, but there is not too much sweetness and the overall flavor is great. I would prefer a little stronger body with the intense flavor, but overall Iím a fan.

(Draught) Pours a black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, nuts, and chocolate. Flavor of strong coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malt with a dry finish. Excellent.

TimE (3090) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2011
Smells like cold coffee. Pretty linear nose. Mouth shows some coffee and dark chocolate, dark cherries, a touch earthy character in the mouth. A bit too sweet for the style, with an ok roasted finish. Overall ok, but not well executed.
