On tap @ Avery. Very dark brown with nice ruby highlights under a beige foamy head. Amazing aroma of freshly roasted coffee, light chocolaty tones with a subtle but present leafy, almost piney hops--but is predominately roasted coffee. What a great smell. Taste is just as pleasant. Nice leafy dry hoppiness with a faint citrus kick. Backed up with delightful chocolate coffee malts. Medium-full body. Actually kinda balanced like a very malty Black IPA. more sweet than bitter, delightful to drink and pleasantly hopped. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2011
On tap at Averys - told it was a variation on Out of Bounds stout with coffee and then triple dry hopped. Pours a deep rich brown with a nice aroma of cocoa and dark malts. Hops are up front but a nice malty beverage with a good deal of caramel and chocolate flavors. Some coffee bitterness finishes out the palate. Nicely carbed Enjoyable.. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2011

Tap @ brewpub. Dark brown appearance with a tan head. Bitter piney hoppy, chocolate, mild espresso aroma. Really a nice balance of flavors between the bitter, piney hoppiness and the sweet cocoa, coffee malts.
