Starts off with a promising dark chocolate, cherry and woody aroma coming off a relatively clear dark brown body with a quickly dissipating tan head. The first taste is more dark and bittersweet chocolate with some candied fruit sweetness. However, like a lot of coffee beers, a tongue pucking sourness that’s not particularly enjoyable shows up and starts to build with each sip. This eventually becomes the dominate component until it’s really more of a dark sour beer. Not bad, but not great.

Smells of coffee and some butter. This looks good but that’s about it. The flavor is fairly strong of coffee but the sweetness and chewiness I just don’t like very much. The bomber is way too much for me.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Black pour, large foamy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Pale roasted nose, soft coffee grinds.   Pale roasted malts, more coffee grounds than the nose suggests.   Body is light, mouthfeel seems a bit watery.   Has a unripened berry and bakers chocolate sort of finish, along with the pale roasted malts and coffee grounds.   Tiz okay, but could use more body.

I think Timfoolery gave me this bottle. Pours a brown color with a plethora of carbonation. Smells of coffee and tastes of coffee. What a surprise....A very average beer. The palate is just slightly off for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (5555) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Nice rich deep brown body with a thick, three centimetre tall light brown, slightly soapy head. Aroma of tons of complex notes - prunes, earth, dirt, grass, nuts, peat, roasted malt and of course - coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive prune and pit fruit flavour at first with a good malt backbone behind and a nutty and slightly earthy finish. Aftertaste surprisingly thin with a bit of fruitiness noticeable, some lighter malt notes and a hint of grapes at the end. Overall, a good smelling and looking beer, but the flavour and especially the aftertaste simply disappoint. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo in San Bruno, California on 05-March-2012 for US$4.69 sampled a few days after returning from Hawaii, at home in Washington on 13-December-2012.

Has an interesting aroma and taste to it. It’s sweet, unlike other beers and this style. And has an almost sour, fruity aftertaste.
