COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans... and put them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to create a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.

Deeeeep amber, thin toffee head. Coco & coffee in the nose. Balanced and bittersweet. Through the middle an espresso, dark chocolate liqueur. Alcohol bitterness, assisted by coffee, closes the door. A powerful beer.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2013
Can thanks to khoffman43! Rich dark black pour, slowly dissipating carbonation and an aroma of dark chocolate and fresh dark roast starbucks coffee. Flavor is nice rich roasted dark malt base, peat & more coffee and slightly sweet on the finish. As far as coffee beers go, pretty damn solid.

Can pour black with ruby tints. Nose of coffee, raost, chocolate, and hint of dark fruit. Taste of the same, with a hint more dark chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel. Long bitter finish.

Slipstream (1985) - USA - APR 18, 2013
Neat little can. Aroma of malt and coffee, with a couple of off notes. The flavor is powerful, leaning a little too far toward bitterness. Lots of dark coffee, drying hops, cigar tobacco, and a touch of molasses. It is not an immediate favorite, but a good brew. Made with coffee, cocoa, and an unidentified bean of "bygone brewers."

pinkie (457) - New York, USA - APR 16, 2013
Pours dark brown and from a vigorous pour I got a tall ample head of mocha colored foam that fell to some sticky lace. Just a little light around the edges makes it look like cola. Nose is delicious. Coffee, chocolate and dark caramel malt. Smells roasty and cold. Malt is prominent and sweet in the nose but hides a bit of bread. I can’t wait to taste it. Oh delight! Coffee, smooth chocolate some warming alcohol and little toast. Mouthfeel is thin and creamy. There is good earth and a little bitter from the hops and a touch of dark fruit on the back palate that makes this seem very decadent. The coffee is extremely well done and not the slightest bit burnt. The cocoa is like silk up next to it. The alcohol is a little too prominent to call it smooth but it rounds out with hints of vanilla as it warms. The bread in this is mild and really well done. Truly great.

VsXsV (2175) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2013
Can. Clear dark brown (almost black) liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate, biscuit, light ash, light booze and some fruity yeast esters. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, bitter chocolate and light booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, bit boozy though.

poured from a can into a tuliped snifter. dark brown almost black pour with a foamy gray brown head that doesn’t stick around, but laces nicely. Smells coffee, roasty, vanilla, a little lighter in the nose than I thought it’d be. Taste is pretty big on sweet coffee. Dark chocolate bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but I shouldn’t hold it up to stout standards. Some hop bitterness. Good strong porter
