Poured a black color from the bottle with aromas of roast and chocolate with some light earth on the back end. Flavors were some burnt coffee and espresso followed by some earth. Not a bad beer overall, it exceeded my expectations.

Bottle shared by burg326. Cheers, Adam! Pours a nice stout brown with a tan head. Nose is huge coffee/ espresso with some roast and earth. Flavor is similar- huge coffee, chicory, and espresso up front followed by roast and earth as well. Body is very fizzy and a bit overcarbonated, which detracts from the beer somewhat, but overall, a nice coffee stout.

Pours jet black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of black coffee, chocolate and malt. Taste is coffee, chocolate, cream and bitterness. Over carbed, not great.

Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 22 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpus snifter. From notes. A: Pours a dark brown color. The head is a one finger white shade. S: Really strong black coffee dominates the nose, T: Huge black coffee to start (seemingly a bit stale), with an underlying chocolate finish that clashes with the coffee qualities. Despite my reservations about the coffee seeming a bit old, the coffee profile itself is solid - the rest of the brew just cant keep up. M: Too thin, and too rough on the palate given its relative finishing sweetness. A bit hard to imbibe. O: Plain and simple, this is a coffee brew searching for a proper stout base to hold it up properly.

651mL from Grassroots in Jax, FL. Thanks to drowland for the gift card! Murky brown pour, overcarbonated, large beige foam. Nose makes it more clear that this is infected with something: something like Brett, heavy phenols, muted coffee, a lot of plastic and detergent. After awhile the volatile chemicals subside and give way to something smokey and umami /savory. Taste is drained, tart lemon tea. No body. Some sweet tea but a ton of chalky yeast in suspension. Another disappointment and shows after 5+ years this brewery still has not gotten down the basics.

Bottle from Grassroots! Which is an awesome place. Pours with a HUGE head. Frothy and rich. I could float a bottle cap on the foam. Smooth and roasty with a hint of coffee on the back end. This was very nice and easily drinkable.

Aurelius (5251) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Good bottle, opaque black brew. Aroma is coffee with toasted soy nuts. A light sugary sweetness over a buffered coffee roast. Tangy. Drinkable, not too complex. Slightly light and porterish body. Buffered coffee finish. Decent session stout for the javaheads. Thanks to LuckyDog for sharing his growler.

Pours dark brown/cola like with thin white head. Aroma is chocolate malts and coffee. Taste is chocolate with a slight coffee bitterness. Palate is nice and thick. Good stuff.

6/4/12. 22oz bomber. Surprisingly light brown pour with a small tan head that fades. Bold coffee aroma with bits of dust and metal. Nice coffee flavor with light hints of chocolate and sweetness with plenty of lingering coffee. Not bad, really.
