Wow. Don’t doubt that the label says what you are going to get. It’s got the raw coffee aroma and then the full coffee profile in the taste. It’s dark brown and has a great head. It does not let on that it’s alcohol laden beer. No other nonsense like "chocolate’ or other things, this is double coffee. Very good beer. JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2014
Small yellow-cream head over dark hazed red-chestnut beer. Hops, chocolate & wood, then dry coffee powder and cocoa. Also a fleeting hint @ chili. Indeed. Cold coffee, with a backthroat heat, that again makes me think of chili. In there? Hints of hops and black chocolate. Quite some sweetness underneath. Warming up, the coffee becomes too obtrusive to my liking, and also more roasted in character. Medium bodied, quite slick. Faint alcohol(?)warmth. Definitely better than the sum of its parts. And once more, I’m surprised at my notes. I’m supposed to hate coffee... StevieT (2015) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2014
Pours cloudy brown, tiny white head, strong aroma of burnt caramel and coffee. Deep coffee flavours with a mild warming peppery and alcohol aftertaste. I love coffee and I love brown ales so it’s not surprising I love this. spacecube (1740) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
500ml bottle, pours brown with a small off white head. Aroma is coffee and caramel, toffee and pecan, this is a great desert beer, but there is good balance from the hops ending with a rounded sweet caramel and pecan toffee pie sweetness. Very rich and smooth palate. An excellent and original beer. Grumbo (3464) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle at Bristol BrewDog. Pours a very deep brown colour with a small, off-white head. Aroma of strong fresh ground coffee, with chocolate. Minimal carbonation, rich, fairly full body. Rather bitter coffee finish. Good but for its price had been hoping for a little more.

2014-01-25. Dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of dry roasty coffee beans, green coffee beans. Flavour is similar bitter with a good amount of coffee character. Average bodied palate, light carbonation. Just okay, the coffee dominates too much for my tastes. Bottle via private order Maris (1553) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2014
From a 500ml bottle on 26/1/2014 (shared by Butz - thanks). Pours a dark amber with a small head. Has a powerful aroma dominated by masses of coffee. Taste wise, it delivers oodles more strong coffee, along with heaps of caramel and milk chocolate. This is a super sweet one but is nicely balanced by some big lingering hops. The texture is thick and the carbonation modest. All up, this is a really good, full on sweet coffee ale. Dogbrick (13389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On draught at 101 Beer Kitchen. This beer pours a nearly opaque copper-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, caramel malt and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a roasty coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.
