Serving: 12 oz. Can from State Line Liquors. It pours a ruddy brown with a frothy tan head. The nose has a bit of brown malt, green apple, abd brown sugar. The flavor is bittersweet with a good bit of earth, black coffee, and bittersweet chocolate. Medium to full body with a warming and bitter finish. Very different.

Pours very dark brown, almost black with a 1/2 finger off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, mild coffee and some dark chocolate. Taste matches the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Pretty good......

Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a large tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and roasty coffee and cocoa. The flavor was dryish roasty and toasty with notes of coffee, cream and vanilla. Medium length dry coffee finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

Can @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks buddy! Pitch black pour with a big brown head and good lacing. Coffee, caramel, brown sugar, light roast, and cocoa in the aroma. Taste is caramel, espresso, earthy, a touch of chocolate, and brown sugar with a light bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad and pretty cool that it comes in cans.

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Dark brown with reddish hues. Aroma of coffee beans, a bit "green". Rather sweet flavor, a bit roasty, with a bit of caramel, coffee beans and a dry finish with some alcohol. Medium-bodied. 7/3/6/3/13=3.2

Can. Beautiful pour ... deep, dark and reddish black, with a cascading head of tight foam. Definitive coffee aroma ... drinks like a strong cup of java, rich, dark, brooding. Great beer. (#5019, 5/12/2013)

Can thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a near black hued body with a large and fluffy off-white head. Great lace. Aromas are deep with chocolate and nutty coffee, mild esters, vanilla, an interesting grainy quality. Light anise like notes. Flavors are of coffee, mildly acidic. Oddly dry and lacking body for such a big beer. Rich and dusty cocoa. Medium bitterness. Feels a bit one dimensional. Not bad, but lacking depth and complexity. Very high carbonation, oddly light body (all things considered), immediately warming with a harsh finish.
