Big ass can poured into tulip glass. Dark brown almost black pour with mocha head. Aroma is vanilla bean, toffee, toast, and coffee. Taste is rich vanilla, brownie batter with nice drying roastyness. Surprisingly awesome stuff.

beerbastard (818) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Glass at WOB. Black as a moonless night, with a tan ring. Big aromas, roasty coffee. Intense dominate flavors of coffee, followed by dark chocolate, vanillas, kahlua. Full palate semi sweet in the finish. Alcohol seems to be hidden. One big flavorful beer.

bytemesis (5167) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Pours deep deep reddish black, small creamy brown head that lasts a long time and laces well. Aroma is coffee forward, mocha, roast malts. Flavor is kahlua for sure, roast malts, chocolate. Medium sweet and light plus bitter, hints of astringency from the coffee presumably, lactose. Medium body, but very silky smooth on the palate. This is certainly a top tier player.

Draft at brewpub. Black with creamy light brown head. Rich dark chocolate sauce. Rich smooth creamy coffee. Roast is light to medium. Bitterness is basically none. Hint of alcohol on the backend. Bigger medium to lighter full body. Lives up the the namesake. Just excellent.

Great beer. Def tastes like a White Russian. Strong vanilla flavores. Wonder if there is kahlua in this.

jredmond (6651) - New York, New York, USA - APR 27, 2015
Sampled at Clockwork’s 10K tasting - probably one of the best beers of the day. Pours a deep brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is fantastic - reminiscent of the first few steps walking into a coffee shop - fresh roast, vanilla, hazelnut and light cocoa. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich, but in no way overbearing. Really delicious and enjoyable.

jtclockwork (11783) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2015
Crowler. Pours black tan head. Nose/taste of White Russian, coffee, lactose and chocolate - mostly a straight up high end white Russian. Medium body.

vtafro (5248) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2015
Crowler. Black pour with tan head, it doesn’t look like a White Russian. Sweet lactose, other sweet aromas. Sweet lactose, toffee, nutty Flavors, nice.
