3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A-- Poured a dark brown, near black color. Settled jet black. Just a touch of ruby light penetrating this. One finger of light mocah colored head. Settled to a thin layer of light brown film and decent collar. Slight bit of head retention but more or less a layer of film. Nice spotty lacing with this.
S-- Touches of roast, brown sugar, and chocolate. Otherwise, a lot of fresh roasted coffee. Nice nose. Quite appealing and a nice pick me up nose to it. Something I would want to drink at 7 AM.
T-- Coffee and dark chocolate. Almost equal amounts of chocolate and coffee. Quite fresh tasting. Touches of rolled oats and brown sugar again but really well done on the coffee part.
M-- Solid stuff. Bold, rich and thick. Medium bodied and light medium carbonated. Dry chocolate and coffee finish with just flashes of the acidity and bitterness. Just touches of brown sugar in mid and back again to smooth out the coffee and chocolate. Long lasting roasted coffee and bitter baking chocolate finish. Nice.
O-- Well rounded beer. Well hidden alcohol and easy to drink. Damned tasty beer and better to have at 7 AM than a long black. One good coffee stout.

Can. A clear-looking, dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head. Heavy doses of dark coffee on the nose, maybe a bit one dimensional, but itís very pleasant. Some roasted malts and resin too. Bitterness, coffee, more coffee and even more coffee in the flavor. I donít like coffee the regular way, this way itís fine. Pleasant bitterness in the end, and lots of coffee of course. Might be a bit one dimensional, but really pleasant anyway. 120817

Can... This beer rocks!Ö Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a bold, hearty mťlange 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 crŤme and fudge finish. Vastly underrated. Big-Time kudos goes out to trukpro for shipping this can of world class brew my way!

Can. I was going to save this as a surprise for RABG but Iím craving a really good coffee beer right now, plus we already have over 150 awesome brews in the line-up, so I suspect this wonít 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 didnít 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.
