BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a deep brown body with a creamy, but small brown head. Decent lace. Aromas are big, mocha, chocolate and coffee notes. Earthy, roasty. Baked bread. Beyond the earthy coffee note there is a bit of a Yoplait fake yogurt/vanilla smell (not lacto). Vanilla, lightly vegital. Flavors are roasty, earthy, tobacco. A bit astringent towards the back end. Lightly metallic as well. Bready, biscuity, nutty (almost a victory nuttiness). Vanilla and more coffee beans. Pretty bitter overall. Brown sugar. A bit of vegital coffee. Medium to light bubbles. On the thinner side of things. Decent.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2011
22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. There is a ton of coffee in the nose of this beer. Very roasted and pleasant. Seems a little on the burnt side, though. Scantly transparent dark mahogany body with a nice, creamy light tan head that is strong. Starts a little sweet, before this becomes a little roasted in the middle with some buttery diacetyl flavors. Coffee flavors follow with a nice roastiness. A lingering dusty cardboard flavor is present late. This is strange, and seems a bit flawed.

22oz bomber. Light coffee, ash, touch of chocolate, honeydew melon and tangy tartness. Thin on the feel. Tart up front, nutty, coffee, bitter cocoa, cherry...infused with 9 volt. Not sure if this a bottling issue or what, but this beer has issues.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2011
9 volt, coffee, dark husky grains. Nice and metallic. Awesome. Nice dark brown pour, really nice creamy tan head great lace. Acidic battery flavors mixed with coffee and some dark roasted malts. Thin, smooth carb, but way too thin and acidicly metallic. Kind of fucked up.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a dense, creamy tan head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and hazelnuts over nutty coffee.. struck me as having a little too much creamer, but it was still quite enjoyable. The flavor found more of the tasty coffee and less of the additives.. light-moderate roast to it.. some tacky, near burnt molasses down there too.. dry roast stuck on the edges.. coffee sourness and more creamer-inspired sweetness on the quick finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. more sour as it warmed up.. this was an entirely solid, yet unspectacular brew. I’d gladly have another.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Draft @ Whole Foods. Pours a deep, dark cola color with reasonable clarity; thin, medium-tan head with light lacing. Rich, roasted coffee, brown sugar, and dried dark fruits. Medium body; moderate CO2; no overt alcohol. Lots of well-roasted coffee, caramelized sugar, and chocolate notes; roastiness serves as the main bittering component, with a light, nondescript hop character; nice balance in the mouth. Long-lasting finish: brown sugar, roasted malts, milk chocolate; lightly sweet.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours ruby brown with a transient light tan head. Strong, strong coffee aroma. There’s so much coffee in it that it suggests chewy bitter. Amps down a bit with time. Simple and tasty. Extreme beer.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours black with a thin tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a nice chocolate and coffe flavor. A very simple brew but quite tasty.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2011
22 oz. Bottle to snifter. Brown pour with a kahki thin creamy head that dissipates to a collar. Aroma is vibrint coffee (very strong) and roasted malt. Taste is pure coffee that is alittle bitter, but tasty and good malt maybe even a faint coco taste as well. Palate is thin to medium feel with a subtle fizzy feel and finishes dry. This is pretty tasty and the coffee is very noticable.

Clear dark brown with a fizzy head. Big coffee aroma and taste with grain and a hint of chile.
