Coffee Noir is Prairie Noir kicked up a notch! Whole roasted espresso beans are added to the barrels in order to enhance the roasted and chocolate malt flavors in this intense beer.

Strong licorice and coffee scents with a bit of alcohol. Nice coffee flavors, with a bit of sour on the back note. Very thick in color.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Brune foncée, col épais moka. Arôme au bouquet café nettement plus agréable que sur la ’vanille noir’. Retrouve un rétro chocolaté. Palais reste malté, café avec des notes grillées en rétro, chocolat perce et accompagne un caractère dont l’alcool devient vite réchauffant. Fini sur une pointe de tourbe.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Nice creamy coffee aroma on a deep brown/black body with great lacing. Coffee and light medicinal battery acid. Off-infected but nowhere near as bad as the vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark black in color with a half inch of tan head that quickly receded, that left random spotty lace. Nose was dominated by coffee, with a hint of bourbon, chocolate, dark fruit, wood and booze. The taste was a strong blast of burnt, earthy coffee up front with a smooth finish of brown sugar, chocolate and wood, some fruit comes in the backside. Yet another winner from Prairie.

Tmoney99 (12420) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black color with an average fizzy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and bitter chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

12 oz. bottle from Errl shared with Tmoney99 and the Fifty West crew. Pours dark brown to black with a large khaki colored head (actually started foamy slowly from the bottle upon opening). I was a little concerned that this was infected and although I did get some mild peppery notes others have mentioned, the size of the flavors I was expecting were able to overcome this mostly. Big roasted coffee/espresso character, dark chocolate, ash, wood, earthy bitterness, thinner body than expected, just mild signs this was ready to turn. Still decent enough.

Atom (1915) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2015
12oz bottle pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Steady dry roasted espresso aroma, with mild oaky vanilla. Espresso flavors stagnate other flavors of oak, vanilla, sweet chocolate, and stinging bourbon alcohol. Interesting.

Dark black in color, light beige head... Aroma of espresso beans, roasted malts, whiskey... Flavor is espresso, whiskey, roasted malts, whiskey comes through on finish... Solid
