4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can... This beer rocks!… Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a bold, hearty mélange of coffee, fudge, mocha and caramel. Full-bodied and velvety with feathery carbonation. The flavor furnishes a luxuriant blend of espresso, singed marshmallow and bittersweet dark chocolate. Silky-smooth, chocolate crème and fudge finish. Vastly underrated. Big-Time kudos goes out to trukpro for shipping this can of world class brew my way!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. I was going to save this as a surprise for RABG but I’m craving a really good coffee beer right now, plus we already have over 150 awesome brews in the line-up, so I suspect this won’t be missed. Very dark brown with an incredibly lively head that needed to be poured in three installments. Aroma is strong coffee, quite raw, with vegetal undertones. Same bold raw coffee bean flavour, spicy and earthy undertones, with a nice roastiness in support. Bitter dry finish. Mouthfeel is a little prickly from the carbo, but didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2012 The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma features a lot of coffee, as well as a hint of chocolate and some roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of mocha coffee notes, as well as some roasted malt and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice coffee stout. Glad I got a chance to try it.

Coffee, coffee, coffee. This is one of the best coffee/java stouts that I've ever tastes. Some java stouts can be overwhelming, but their is the perfect blend of all aspects. Great aroma, taste, palate, and aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The everyman beer rating: Can . . . nice enough pour, little light on the head, aroma is definitely coffee-like as they espouse (though it is a bit like a Folgers aroma). Decent enough stout with a mild taste and smooth drink.
