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.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, and sweet. Taste hides the alcohol surprisingly well. A good amount of coffee and some sweetness in there too. This is very good.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark brown that allows light to pass along the edges and a trace of light to pass through the body. There is a moderate-large brown head that lasts through the first quarter of the glass and leaves partial lace. Pleasant aroma of coffee with notes of cocoa. The flavor is coffee along some lightly roasted malt and some cocoa. Some mild coffee/roast bitterness at the back of the throat after the swallow. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Jabic (405) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Ar: Butterscotch, toasty caramel, some cocoa. Ap: Deep brown, opaque - large light tan head with great retention and thick, rocky lacing. T: Big burst of coffee up front, astringent roast - high bitterness - butterscotch, caramel, and nougat - finish coffee and a some light cocoa notes, and a lot of roast. P: Medium-full body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Tasty mixture of flavors, but there is just too much astringency here.

12oz redbull can into a snifter. this pours a dark dark black with a slightly off white head. Lacing left from the fluffy head and nice ring of bubbles left in the wake. The aromas of strong coffee and straight cacao nibs. its interesting because you dont think at all beer or even imperial porter if you close your eyes and take a whiff, its more like sitting in little coffee shop. with the first taste i get no beer and no alcohol, i get coffee, slight bits or burnt grain, chocolate, almost a vanilla. the coffee and roast is overwhelming. the body is lighter than one would expect especially for those that judge beers by the color. if not for the overwhelming flavor this is an easy and quick sipper till the abv sneaks up on you and you slow it down. overall this is a pretty good beer that i had no idea about when getting this last single can. i think if it was a little cheaper and more available it would stay in my rotation as long as possible.
