AirForceHops (3773) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2015
12 oz. bottle. With a date of 12/23/2013. Dark blacker color thin head. Aroma is bitter coffee bean with mild roasted grains. Flavor is slightly bitter coffee grounds, light chocolate and a light charred malt/ bean character. The body is rather nice for the O. G. The fact that is is still drinkable after all this time is really astounding. Would love to sample this fresh

WillRunForBeer (1001) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2015
From notes. 12 oz bottle shared 3 ways. Dated 12/23/13. Pours coca cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, spent coffee grinds. Flavor is dark chocolate, medium dark coffee. There is a slight sourness to the coffee flavor, probably due to age. Still, quite good.

jredmond (5815) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 Bottle extra’d courtesy of emacgee. Pours a deep murky brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is super earthy roast, coffee, dirt and light sugar. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of roast up front, a bit too much of the roast to be honest. Some light bitter chocolate follows through later on the palate, but this seems to be a one-note "roast" dominated stout.

magsinva (922) - Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tap @ Fireworks Leesburg - pours black with a tan head, a little bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet coffee, breakfast cereal, and malt drink. Taste is sweet with not a lot of body. Nice, though a bit thin for a stout.

davey101 (716) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottled on 11/07/2014. 12 oz into a tulip. Pours a standard black with a finger of mocha foam. Nose is fresh coffee, roast, ash, and faint cocoa. Taste is very roasty and ashy with some bitter coffee and like others have noted, an out of place fruit sweetness. The roast is a bit too prominent. Decent enough coffee stout but the smoke and mystery sweetness was a bit off putting.

Strykzone (5206) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Nate as part of a Christmas sampler. Very black with a small tan head. Coffee and ash in the nose. Both of those are tasted. I also taste lactic and cocoa and it took a while to decipher that. That aspect just doesn’t work here. Some bitter earth along with the ash makes it gently smoky. Quite late a bit of citrus emerged and added a nice offset. This improved with warming.

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours black with a small tan head. Charred malt, smoke, coffee, and a sweetness that I can’t place. Roasted malt, light coffee, and bit of a sour taste. Good beer

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small creamy brown head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was coffee, chocolate syrup, port wine and marshmallows. The flavor was coffee, vanilla, marshmallow, cocoa and a hint of red wine. Medium length finish. Medium body but silky and creamy. Solid.

emacgee (4207) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Very nice and clean dark black pour with one to two fingers of cocoa tan head. Very nice aroma, rich dark malts with dark fruit, brown sugar, coffee, and some earthy roasty malt notes. Flavor isn’t dominated by coffee (critical…) and features a nice sweet roast, chocolate, and burnt sugar. Very nice
