Can. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very chocolatey and sweet, almost chocolate cookie or cake sweetness, a bit of dark cocoa and some espresso. Flavor has a lot of the chocolate of course, both milk and dark chocolate and the coffee comes in aggressively in the finish. Slight metallic note that lingers but generally good heavy chocolate coffee beer. Medium to medium full body a bit creamy.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet coffee, vanilla, espresso, lightly roasted malts, and lighter nutty notes. This one hit me the right way; really damn good.

12 oz. can. Pours a dark brown, near black, with a small tan head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, mild earth. Flavor is chocolatey, with strong coffee but a strong earth presence. Some bitterness, some sweetness, and, in fact, fairly balanced. Interesting flavor, however, mild dirt, mild dust. Full bodied, nice carbonation, but it drinks pretty smooth. Finishes like a chocolate dessert.

Grabbed 4 pack at whole foods. Pours deep dark brown with one finger head. Nose is earthy and of bitter dark chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, creamy cappuccino, earth, resin, and root beer. Slight alcohol after taste but well hidden for this abv. Easy drinking which could prove dangerous for me this evening unless I finally develop self control.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
3Beans pours a opaque rich brown black with a sturdy lasting head of small bubbles. Nose is rich dark chocolate and black coffee, a heady mix of awesomeness. Taste is dark chocolate bitter on the front mellowing with good malt in the mid taste. This beer finishes with more good dark chocolate black coffee on the back end. There is just a bit of minerally kick on the front end that I’;m not crazy about. the whole thing works amazingly well. a fantastic beer.

Can. Very dark opaque brown pour with a tall, frothy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, soft coffee notes and caramel. Taste is rather boozy with roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, caramel and toasted grains. Body is medium with a creamy carbonation and a strong, boozy warmth. Not noticeable in the aroma but way up front on the palate. Ends with more booze notes, chocolate, cocoa, soft coffee roasted malt, caramel, and toasted grains.

Poured at Sixpoint tasting at Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room in NYC today. Light brown in color with thick white head. Aroma of coffe/espresso beans. The coffee really comes throught in the taste with hints of chocolate. I really enjoyed this beer.

Light brown, 3 finger coffee colored head. smells of espresso beans, rye malts, smoke and oak. Taste is very coffee like. lots of cold brewed coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans but very little malt to back it up. very thin and light mouthfeel, roast almost burnt coffee finish.

Earthy, beany, chocolately and well worth the wait! Great new comer to the market! It's what diesel should be! I do get a watery forward but beans after taste.

Poured from 12oz red bull style can. Color is opaque dark brown... Like a brown ale. Minimal head disappears very quick. Smells of day old coffee pot, a bit of vanilla, and some resinous hops. Taste is cold coffee, more pronounced vanilla, and resin. There is a bit of alcohol hotness to it but otherwise well masked. Kind of a watery mouth feel. Different but tasty.
