COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the worlds finest Arabica beans are hand picked on their way to becoming Blue Mountain Coffee. Halfway around the world, plump spring barley grows to maturity in the loamy soil of North America while aromatic hops are cutivated to exacting standards. Here in our kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. Please enjoy this brew in moderation.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2006
Bottle: Black in color, thin brown head, spotty lacing.   Huge earthen coffee aroma with strong hints of charred wood and campfire.   Sweet roasted malt start, very sweet actually, chewy, loads of apple skin, charred wood, and coffee.   Fairly oily, and wow, yeah, amazingly sweet and malty.   Hop profile is is very minimal, but tiz noticeable.   Body is huge, mouthfeel is sticky.   Strong coffee lingers well after the finish.   Remains tacky, roasty, malty, and very sweet.   This is a strong dark dessert beer if I have ever had one.   Thanks Dan for this lovely brew!

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 26, 2006
Nose of coffee, berries, alcohol, soy sauce, caramel, flowers, and grass. The brew pours black with a dark brown head that presents with a nice casual cascade. The head is mostly diminishing with light lace. The brew is an intense tornado of complexity swirling about chaotically on the tongue. The flavor is like a brick in the face. The enormously full body is soft with an alcoholic & sticky feel to the finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9585) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2006
Blind rating. Pours opaque with a tan edgy head. Aroma is huge floral perfumey hops, a dark, rich chocolate bar follows, deep roasted coffee and malt (toast). Moderate acidity, heavily bitter dark chocolate, coffee with heavy hops and a slightly sweet molasses finish. Dark and full bodied, smooth creamy palate.

imzugzug (103) - Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2006
A bit of a World Wide Stout wanna be. Unfortunately this puppy falls short. Not at all well balanced, to the point that the alcohol heat just takes over and that’s all there is. Smells like chocolate, alcohol and smoked fruits. Taste was surprising lacking the coffee aspect. Far to hot and bitter on the finish.

Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
100% blind rating. Body is black (opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is heavily malty (chocolate, roasted grain, coffee), with notes of vanilla, wood, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Decadent! Delicious.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Hot, but beautiful!
Beer pours an opaque oily black-brown with a small, light brown, frothy, mostly and rapidly diminishing head. High ABV is visable as long legs on the glass. The aroma is big on the coffee: malty with heavy notes of roasted grain, genuine dark-roasted coffee beans, moderate chocolate and light molasses; hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, moderate notes of herbs, light notes of green grass; yeasty with a trace of dough; miscellaneous notes of heavy, hot notes of alcohol, light notes of top soil.
The flavor is heavily bittersweet with a long, tummy-warming, moderately sweet, lightly bitter and acidic finish.
The body is full, the texture is velvety-syrupy and the carbonation is softer-than-average.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Opaque, little head. Aroma is roasted malt and almost overpowering isopropyl alcohol. Taste is soy, roasted malts, slight oxidation. Alcohol is probably too much. Slightly acidic, coffee in there as well. Finish is very bitter from hops and roasted malt. Something went wrong here.

jb (2162) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 20, 2006
Chocolate, molasses and roasted notes in the nose. Beautiful jet black with dark red brown head. Sticky sweet palate with alcohol, dark fruit, a bit of malt and hops. Finish is a bit sweet. There are alot of pretenders in this category but this one is the real deal.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2006
Clean malt and a smooth chocolate flavour. A touch of licorice but not as much coffee on the palate as I was expecting. Nice dark frothy head and a jet black colour. Very well balanced considering the abv. Smoothly hopped. A pleasant discovery.
