Rated on 02-16-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small tan head that mostly diminishes, mostly opaque brown body with a red tint, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and roasted coffee. The flavor is lightly bitter, roasted malt, roasted coffee, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering coffee aftertaste that is not offensive even for this non-coffee drinker. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was hoppy and roasted malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt coffee and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle from Cavie. Dark pour with a huge brown head that refused to let me pour more than a tiny drop at a time. Aroma is roasted and green as hell. Just coffee beans and pepper all over the place. Taste is weird, kinda thin, peppery, and just slightly coffee. Really disappointed that it didn’t live up to the smell. Weak finish. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Very dark brown pour. Tan head. Chalky, roasty, coffee aroma. Flavor is green coffee, roasty, chocolate, burned toast. Whispering (5) - Midland, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2012 does not count
Pours with a thick dark brown head, very dark colouring tastes heavily of coffee, a bit too carbonated with a rather bitter aftertaste. Not one that I’m going to get again.

Slight dark brown head when poured tiny amount of lacing. Not much of a nose hint of burnt coffee and roasted malts. Taste is decent coffe is not overwhelming and blends in well. I would reccomend at least trying this once if you have the chance. screigh (765) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours a almost opaque black with only hints of red when held to a light. Definitely over carbonated. I can pour about 1 ounce in a pint glass and the rest is head. Head is tan and ever lasting. Smells like old coffee grounds. Taste is perhaps a bit thin. Bitterness right away. A lot of coffee and roast. My review probably reads a bit harsher than it really should be. Wish it had a bit more body. Patrickctenchi (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pours completely black, huge ever-expanding dark tan head. Aroma is rich, chocolate/coffee, roasted. Taste is the same, just much more with some pleasing vanilla. wish it were a bit thicker. Altogether a very good beer. KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a thick dark brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy medium brown head that diminished for the most part to just a foamy collar, creating a little spotty lacing.
Aroma was all about the coffee with a roasted malt and a sweaty yeast and having hints of chocolate and vanilla.
The taste was malty and a little sweet with a nice chocolate note in the beginning then grew slightly bitter with a heavy dose of coffee and a bit of vanilla at the end. The flavor hung on for a short while and again was all about the coffee.
Mouthfeel was somewhere close to full in body with a creamy, oily texture and a perky carbonation.
Overall a decent tasting coffee Stout with a nice touch of vanilla and a name that fits this brew perfectly.

Bottle from StFun. Pours deep brown with a thick fluffy mocha colored head. Definitely coffee in the aroma that’s combined with vanilla extract, some caramel, and a little chocolate. The body is slightly creamy and thin with some bitter roast. The flavors consist of not so bold coffee grounds, unsweetened dark chocolate, grainy notes, and a little metallic note. Decent but nothing more.
