Pours a very dark brown with a ring of tan head. Aroma smoky vanilla java. Flavor carries nice vanilla character but feels a bit watered down.

12 oz bottle from a grocery store in Upper Michigan. This bottle reads 5% ABV. Aroma is strong in vanilla, chocolate, coffee; roasty, hint of licorice. Pours dark dark brown to black with a one finger beige head that falls into a ring after a minute; leaves a bit of lace. Taste is sweet and roasty, finishing with a slightly dry bitterness; flavors are chocolate, vanilla, coffee, wet stone. This is really good. I don’t understand the low scores for this. I can’t find anything wrong with it. mjmoen (575) - - JUL 9, 2017
B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Good vanilla, but after taste is lacking alobar (3862) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2017
Cola brown pour with minimal tan head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Prominant vanilla flavor with some roasted malt. Okay.

Dark brown, clear, tall, lasting brown head. Intense chocolate, coffee aroma. Full body, aggressive flavor, lean but smooth mouthfeel with low heat and carbonation, lingering and tasty aftertaste. Bitter, very dry, briefly appearing to be sweet. Aggressive roast character, ashy, tastes like roast barley. Beautiful flavors of quality coffee and chocolate, vanilla in the background, obviously added flavors. Even if not very subtle, a great experience. Just wish for a little sweetness, but after all it’s not a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone drsordr (2776) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Draft to taster at Cincy beerfest 2017 pour opaque black with thin ecru head. Nose light roast, mild vanilla. Taste red fruit, light roast, hint of vanilla. Light bitter finish. Thin and not much coffee. llcooldave (1219) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Pours a very opaque black in the glass. Great tasting coffee mocha flavor with a hint of dried fruit and nuts almost like a Chunky bar. Coffee liqueur aroma with a hint of Oreo cookies. Overall, a great tasting beer for the cool weather. djd07 (15282) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle at BrewMaster’s Craft Beer Festival. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malt, vanilla bean, cocoa. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, light dry finish, good. Wallaby501 (72) - - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle to glass. Big coffee aroma. Dark, decently thick pour with a nice tan head. Taste is somewhat astringent. Coffee and vanilla are both there but kind of overpowered by that. Nice roasted malts round out the body. Palate is appropriate for the style. Overall just too astringent (probably due to how they incorporated the coffee beans.)
