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.

Westmeister (1723) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Another beer had on camping trip with the fellas. Stream temp into a camp mug. Points to nose: big coffee, chocolate, dark roasted malts, noticeable sweeness. Tasty coffee/chocolate combo, thick molasses. Tasty.

Advent beer #21: 12oz VIrGINiA Slims cans - Nose is roast, booze, and milk chocolate. very roasty in my mouth. A tad harsh from the booze. Dark chocolate bitterness.

This beer is unique and the only fault is that I did not get the beer before the sell by date had been reached...

madvike (2692) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Can - Somehow my rating got nuked, so I’m going off of memory on this one. I recall this was about the score I gave it, and I recall lots of chocolate, not a ton of coffee, and nothing that would be the romano bean--at least that I can tell. I’ll have to revisit this one again sometime, but for now this will have to do.

hopscotch (9038) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. More-so than coffee, the aroma is constructed of deep, dark malts, molasses and leather. Full-bodied with bristly carbonation. The bittersweet flavor and finish are loaded with scorched malt and blackstrap molasses with only a rumor of coffee.

Beergeek23322 (2220) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2013
2/9/2013. From can. pours deep mahogany with a tan head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt aromas. Rich flavors of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit with a bitter finish.

Ron (2490) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours a roasty porter brown color with a fluffy tan head. Nose is roast, vanilla, chocolate, chocolatey coffee, some earth, but mostly coffee and milk with some mild vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is similar: coffee and milk up front with chocolate in the mid followed by some earth and cocoa in the finish. Medium in body.

Ataraxia (361) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Translucent dark brown, frothy beige head. Strong aroma of vanilla, mocha, and syrup. Sweet hazelnut taste. Smooth, but surprisingly thin - almost watery, and medium-bodied at most. Small alcohol presence.

puboflyons (2107) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2013
From the can labeled Best Before 10 Jul 2013. I am trying this a few months after that. It pours nice with its dark brown to nearly black look with a slightly lingering beige head. The nose of coffee and chocolate for the most part but letting me know they’re there are the cherry fruit notes. No booze considering it is 10% ABV. Creamy and above average body. While the chocolate and coffee present their egos ahead of everything else on the nose, the cherry bides its time and sneaks up behind those two characters. No booze taste hut I’ll feel the 10% ABV later I bet.
