2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark molases with a head that almost immediately disappears. Aroma is day old coffee grounds in that depressing tinted filter kind of way. The flavor starts out sweet with strong flavors of Vanilla and coffee but finishes bitter with the nose winning over and coffee grounds filling dancing on the tongue with the strong carbonation. Would enjoy more balance of vanilla and coffee with a stronger coffee rather than ground flavor. Overall average.
B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Good vanilla, but after taste is lacking alobar (3833) - 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. Bebum (1012) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2017
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 (2743) - 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 (1218) - 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.

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.) jflopsu (1627) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Pours a dark brown with tan head. A vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt aroma. A vanilla taste with chocolate, roasted malts and heavy delayed carbonation. A malt and grain aftertaste - heavy with carbonation. ordybill (1805) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2016
