COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to give the stout a smoother, almost slick, mouthfeel with a nice finish of coffee provided by Cumberland Coffee and Tea Company. Dark malts are used to give this beer a very complex roast flavor. Lower bittering rates ~30 IBUís helps put the flavor highlighting the maltiness, and roasted malt. ABV is coming in around 7% on this one!

cwill (66) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Pours jet black, with a thin head that recedes quickly with no lacing. Nose is straight coffee. The taste follows the nose with a huge on coffee bomb which dominates the subtle malty nutty flavors. Smooth mouth feel with a bitter acidic finish. A bit one dimensional. All coffee and not much beer.

ctipping (1335) - Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2016
650 mL bottle. Black body. Smell is intense coffee. Pretty nice coffee aroma, too. Rich without being acidic. Taste is equally strong coffee. Thereís barely any beer here. Less rich. Sharp and bitter coffee. Light nutty malt and thatís it. Light body, but maybe just seems that way because of all the coffee. Not bad. Not great.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.75 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy/frothy tan head. Retention is a about below average but finger ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: This is all about the coffee. Dark roast coffee dominates with roasted barley upping the bitterness and char. Mild caramel and chocolate sweetness. Straightfoward, but pleasant. 3.5 T: The taste is big coffee as well. The base beer functions as a vessel for the coffee. It doesnít add a whole lot to the coffee flavor. Roasted barley adds more roast. Itís fairly well balanced with a mild caramel and chocolate to combat the roast. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Mildly creamy and super smooth. 3.5 D: Itís good, but itís one dimensional. ★ 736 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 09, 2016

katrinaez (1355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Heavy coffee bean scent and mouth feel had a sour bitter coffee nibs. You feel it in the back sides of your tongue. Nice aroma of coffee and malts. Taste is coffee, light cocoa and roasted barley. Nice dark black with brown coloring. Bottle

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep black with one finger of mocha head that quickly dissipates and soapy lacing. Nose of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt. A little light bodied for the style, well carbonated, with a strong sweet and bitter coffee finish. Pretty tasty.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Bainbridge Street Barrel House in Philly. Pours a deep dark black color with a two finger dense tan head that falls to a thin cap and leaves lots of lacing. Big coffee aroma with some roastiness and a hint of milk chocolate. Taste is very coffee forward and nicely balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Also has some milk chocolate and and a hint of dark fruits and wood. Medium to heavy bodied, with a long lasting bitterness and a drying finish. This would be a wonderful breakfast beer!
