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.

I got this beer from my LBS beer club in my monthly 6 pack. I honestly didn't even know what type of beer it was until I poured it. Ale with natural flavors and coffee? Anyways, it poured a bomb, but a beautiful color once it did settle down. The nose is very heavy with coffee notes, dark chocolate and roast which had me excited. The taste however is awful. I'm usually a huge fan of dark beers, this one I wouldn't give to my dog. I'm feeding it to the drain! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: pours brown with an off white head that subsides to a dense film.

Aroma: Sweet prepared coffee, some chocolaty roasty malt.

Taste: Sweet prepared coffee caramel. Roast. Faint hop spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and average carbonation.

Overall: Very tasty and surprised that it was clocking in at 10%.

12 ounce can - $3.34 at Barrel and Barley in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours an opaque, dark brown body with a tall, growing, sandy-tan head.

Smell: Slight alcohol with some foretelling astringent, roasted notes of bread, nuts, and coffee that have felt the unforgiving flames just a bit too long.

Taste: Coffee, chocolate powder, and some roasted nuts and burnt toast. Medium-plus sweetness. A little raisin. Growing spicy, earthy, woodsy hop quality as the bitterness builds on the tongue pushed a bit further by the sharpness of the alcohol (a bit boozey). Pulling up a thin vegetal tone as Iím hoping, yearning for some semblance, some smoother components. Drying, alcoholic, moderately astringent finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Just a bit velvety.

Overall: Personally, it felt mish-mashed and muddled with some noted coarseness.

Out of a can. Pours mocha black with generous tan head. Rich aromas and hints of mocha chocolate make this beer fantastic. Nice blend of bitter and sweet.

$5 can bought at the Comet Cafe in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The can says "Best by July 10th", so itís not exactly fresh, but itís in a can, itís not an IPA, and my guess is that it was stored cold. Iím not too worried about that. Appearance: Sexy. Pitch black with about two fingers of a creamy, dark tan head. Lacingís somewhat patchy, but it just looks awesome overall. Smell: I had this served to me seemingly near freezing, so I got basically no smell out of my glass after pouring. After a few minutes, I smelled my warmed up can, and the first thing I got was a pretty huge dose of alcohol, followed by coffee and cocoa. As the 3Beans in my glass slowly warmed, it smelled like chilled dark coffee with cocoa sprinkled in. The alcohol aroma is slightly annoying, but I mean.. what the hell. It IS 10%. Taste/feel: When I first got it, it just tasted like a somewhat bland cold coffee (definitely needed to warm up). After it warmed up... wow. Massive coffee, complimentary dark chocolate, and a moderate amount of warming in the throat from the alcohol. This seems to be a fairly popular morning beer on BeerAdvocate, but this worked well for me as a nightcap.

From a can shared with Kermis. Pours a clear cola brown with a bubbly, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of licorice. Licorice comes out more strongly in the taste. Lingering bitter finish.

Little fucken can @ home. Pours a dark brown appearance with a big, fluffy dark brown head. Coffee, toasted malty, a bit roasty, chocolate, toffee, herbal, a bit earthy aroma. Tangy, a bit goopy, toffee/burnt sugar, dark chocolate, coffee flavor. Sort of goopy and sweet. Not horrible but a bit over the top for me.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a clean dark brown color and red highlights, with a one finger, off white head. Roasted dark chocolate aromas with a touch of the coffee and a light hop hint. Sweet cocoa flavors complemented by a bitter coffee finish. Very well-balanced. Slick and creamy, medium body with mild carbonation.
