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.

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.

Cannette de 12 oz. Merci Patrick. Bière brune beige avec des reflets rouges. Au nez de la vanille, du cacao et du café. C’est la base de cette bière au 3 grains (vanille, café et cacao). En bouche une amertume de grain de café rôti quasi astringente, du chocolat, de café et encore du café. La texture est agréable. Drôle de finale sèche de grain.

Dark brown, nose of ashy, coffee, and bakers cocoa. Some roasted malt, no hop aroma to speak of. Dry coffee, bittersweet chocolate flavor. Medium body, roasted coffee dominates.

ineedbeer (1860) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Aroma is fairly subtle with chocolate and coffee dominating. There is also some nutty malt notes and a light fruit ester. Low roasted malt aroma present as well. No hop aroma. Pours a dark brown with lighter brown highlights on the edges. Good thick tan head that shows nice retention. Flavor is good, but surprisingly boring. Light coffee and chocolate notes with coffee becoming more apparent late in the palate. As it warms the coffee gets more noticeable as does some alcohol spice. No hop flavor and low bitterness. Not a whole lot of roast malt flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Medium low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright beer but the alcohol as it warms isn't great. Also the malt character isn't as bright as I would hope or expect. I don't get much chocolate either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une robe brune qui montre un certain signe de viscosité. Une tête du tonnerre. Un nez expressif en café et alléchant en notes chocolatées et torréfiées. Un goût qui s’inscrit dans la continuité des arômes. Le café apporte une amertume tandis que les grains noirs suintent des perles d’acidité. Le chocolat réussi à rallier mes papilles. L’alcool est fort et je ne suis pas certain que c’est une bonne chose. En bouche, le corps est bien rond et montre un pétillement soutenu. La texture huileuse du liquide me plaît. La finale se fait sur des notes amères grimaçantes essentiellement proposées par la torréfaction et les notes chocolatées.

Can. Deep garnet-brown body, thin tan head. Bitter, ashy, roasted coffee bean nose; otherwise dry. Coffee bean dominates the thin, relatively simplistic body. Bitter. OK.

ttoadee (1297) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.

Can pours black creamy texture. Smells of chocolate roasty semi sweet. Not bad beer.

DalzAle (2026) - 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.
