Can at Lincoln Wine Bar. Dark pour. Roasted aroma. Full body, generally sweet with some roasted flavor/bitterness in the finish. Solid.
Bottle. Ginseng/chicory, coffee malt, and dry hay aroma. Black with nice tan head. Mildly sweet milky coffee malt and moderately bitter chicory/herbal hay flavor. Good body. Cuso (8608) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 26, 2016

16 oz can poured. Much thanks to Dan for sharing. Pours a near black with a tan swirl head. Coffee heavy aroma with some wood character. Flavor is very dry, oak, coffee, good roasted malt. Dry toasty finish. Very fun beer to try. Good stuff. tennisjoel (1446) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2016
Opaque brown body beneath a creamy tight off white head. Buttery and artificial notes of glue, rubber. Flavor is more coffee. Fairly smooth palate. Mixed on this one. Aroma is kind of gross, but the strong flavis of coffee, smoke, vanilla, and caramel mask the flaws. hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2016
16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted notes, malts and some chocolate. Taste is bitter, coffee, malty, herbal notes. Nice beer, enjoyable.

Can sample. Cloudy brown color, tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is peppery coffee grounds and cocoa. chinchill (4899) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2015
16 oz can served in a mug at the 2015 Albino Skunk Music Festival.
Pours very dark brown with an exceptionally creamy head. The aroma is moderately strong with at least as much chocolate as coffee and roast grain. The coffee comes to the fore upon tasting. It’s nearly matched by the rich, dark roasted grains. Moderately bitter.

Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. Decent, roasty... not much expected from this style, and nothing earth-shattering here. Homer321 (5000) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Can shared by Dan. Light acidic coffee note in the aroma. Faint fudge. Dark brown with small off white head. Very acidic and almost tart flavor. Thin mouthfeel. Overall just meh. RobertDale (6368) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 12, 2015
16 ounce can. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is the same. Somewhat thin. Not bad, but not memorable.
