This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by O’hori’s Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat or imitated.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is pure, strong coffee. Flavor if strong coffee, some malt, light sweetness, dark chocolate with a strong coffee bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lighter the expected, I guess perhaps medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable, tasty brew! Very strong on the coffee and I dig that.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2012
A black beer with a ridiculously large tan head. Seriously, it is way over-carbonated about two inches of beer to six inches of head on a gentle pour. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, oat, and lactose. The flavor is coffee, lactose, and a bit of anise as well, but inferior to the aroma.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and caramel in the aroma. It is delicious. The taste is a bit underwhelming, as it doesn’t deliver all the promises the nose makes. It is correctly bitter and not as sweet or strong in coffee favors as I had expected. The palate is more medium than thick and carbonation is adequate. If only everything else were as good as the aroma...

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Can. Pours a deep, rich mahogany with a nose of freshly used coffee grounds and light chocolate. Flavor is metallic coffee with a hint of caramel in the finish. Average mouthfeel. FUCK YOU, TYLER DELANE. YOU BETTER FUCKING HOPE I NEVER FUCKING RUN INTO YOU AGAIN, YOU COCK-SMOKING SHITFUCKER.

12 oz can shared by Dean via trade. Poured a good looking thick body pitch black with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma is great, notes of black coffee, lactose, dark toast. Thicker bodied with with medium to fuller mouthfeel if that makes sense, softer carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor started off with a quick hint of metal that faded rapidly, lots of coffee with a touch cream and even some marshmellow, dark toast. This is good stuff.

Can, big thanks to Trukpro for this via trade. First off the can is awesome, love the "before noon/after noon" on it. Now to the beer...pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is of lots of coffee, light chocolate, some roast and light hop notes in there. Flavor is a great balance, with a nice quality coffee taste of medium roast, chocolate, and a light finish of some hops and roast. Solid brew with a dangerously well hidden ABV. Props!
