Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears pitch black and completely opaque in the glass with faint mahogany edges and a two finger beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic spotty lacing behind. Slightly smokey roasted dark malt aroma thatís slightly one dimensional and slightly acrid. Strong gourmet roast saves the nose but there is a really strong burnt/charcoal like presence with hints of charred toast, oatmeal, dark chocolate and ash. As it warms the coffee/espresso bean notes stand out along with subtle sweeter light malts. Nice coffee presence elevates the aroma a bit but itís still overly roasted and one note for my preference. On the fuller end of medium body with slightly better balance than expected but still heavily dominated by robust, deeply roasted malt. Very dry and somewhat acrid with burnt toast/malt flavor along with bitter dark chocolate, ash, charcoal, and used coffee grinds. The coffee presence was really nice in the nose but isnít very pleasant on the palate. Tastes similar to old burnt coffee and is in desperate need of more sweetness to balance things out. Thereís a touch of lighter malt with sweet chocolate and caramel but it isnít enough to counter the heavy roast/burnt coffee flavors.

Sampled at gabf. Nice coffee nose is pleasant. Not so much roastiness in the flavor as green coffee. Soft citrus. Fairly dry. Pretty good stuff.

Thomas Creeks Vanilla is one of my favorite beers - more so on tap than in a bottle - but this beer fell well short of my expectations. Not nasty, but pretty close to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (4290) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours coffee brown with a nice tan head. Aroma has a definite coffee tone, along with roast malt and hints of chocolate and burnt hops. Flavor has quality coffee, roast malt, earthy, and chocolate tones, very enjoyable. Texture is firm and quite fizzy. Enjoy.

Jamesthebrit (383) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Aroma is light coffee. Acidic. Looks fine. Dark brown. Taste is average. Lighter. Coffee is present. Acidic on the finish. Medium body. Carbonation is good. Overall an ok beer. The body seems a little light and the coffee is not an asset here.

12oz bottle from Lacey Spirits. Pours dark brown/almost black color with a finger of foamy tan head. Atoma of ground coffee beans, chocolate pudding, dark malts, and hints of vanilla. Taste of ash, black malts, bitter coffee, coco powder, and vania bean in the finish.

Smells great. At first, very sharp and medicinal tasting. Nice chocolate finish. Very astringent bitterness in roof of mouth that lingered. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
