Pours a deep dark brown with minimal head. Just a small wispy ring around the glass. Big coffee flavor and aroma with some chocolate, cream, and cola notes. Smooth mouthfeel that is a little thin. Light body with low carbonation. Refreshing and delicious.

Can thanks to the other Ben. Serious coffee beer here. That’s one of the few styles I miss out in Denver. No one I know packages a coffee beer here that is as rich and genuine as Surly (or Bells or Terrapin or Founders). Deep, true whole bean coffee tantilizes my nose with a hint of sweet malts. Palate is medium. Real, rich coffee bean flavor to back up the aroma highlights the sweetish bready malts. Excellent beer.

16oz can pours a cloudy brown with a reddish hue and a nice tan head. Big coffee aroma with hints of caramel, chocolate, and hops. Slight bitter flavor with a clean finish. Delicious!!

Can (canned 1/6/14) poured into a nonic pint glass. Pours a dark brown almost black color with half an inch of light tan head. Big coffee on the aroma, bits of dark chocolate. Tasting notes of big roasty and burnt coffee, dark chocolate, caramel. Very coffee forward on the aroma and taste, coffee flavors dominate. Thin mouthfeel. Medium carbonation and body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty easy drinker for coffee lovers.

Another bravo to Surly for this delicious coffee beer. The aroma is as rich as the flavor in this amazingly tasteful beer. Rich foamy head with staying power. Amazing!

brought a pint can home from a trip to MN, along with several other Minneapolis area brews.
It pours out dark, dark brown with a tan head and the aroma of expresso wafts up from the glass. The taste was quite bitter, much more so than other coffee stouts I have had. The mouthfeel is a little thin too, not as boozy as I had hoped. Worth trying, but there are other brews from Surly I like a lot more

@Gyllenbock: ganska diskret doft men en len och trevlig smak som är balanserad utan att sticka ut.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is of espresso and chocolate. Like a chocolate covered bean. Or iced coffee. Taste is exactly the same. Quite thin. Nice carb. Easy drinking.
