Great coffee flavour. Attack is present, but weaker than I would like. Some subtle roasty chocolate notes. Sloppy in the mouth. Another local i am proud of.

DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Tap at Ginger Man Houston. Dark brown pour. Smells of coffee. Light body, watery mouthfeel. Light coffee flavor, not very distinguished. Somewhat bland beer.

chef201atc (261) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2007
On tap @ the Fort Worth Gingerman. Coal black pour with a scant tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Nose is – surprise – Coffee, and a lot of it. Also a bit of dank musty earthiness under the coffee. Lighter mouthfeel than expected. Flavor is dominated by coffee, but does have some chocolate. Nice coffee bitterness in the finish.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Draft @ Opal’s - Deep brownish crimson, thin creamy tan head. Mellow nose of roasted coffee and toast, with faint undertones of currants. Similar flavors throughout with a light tangy hop bite in the end. Light bodied and thin, fizzy carbonation, soft roasty finish. Drinkable, but nothing earth shattering...

TexasAggie12 (64) - Burnet, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2006
Dark color. Rich malty aroma. Taste of chocholate, malt and hops. Finishes with a hint of coffee but not to much.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Dark coloured and slightly rich on the palate. Some bitterness in a coffee flavoured finish.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2005
On Tap: Silky mouthfeel, not much in way of aromas though. Kind of disappointed in the taste, it was a little thin, but I usually don’t like too heavy of ports though. Mouthfeel was great. Not very strong coffee flavor, a touch of chocholate and hops.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Sampled on draft, The Ginger Man, Dallas. Pours opaque brown much lacing and an adequate, tan head. Coffee dominates both the flavor and aroma. The flavor also has a bit of cocoa. Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated. Balanced, smooth and easy to drink. Too much coffee for me, but still a good beer.
