4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black, thin tan head. Cold infused with coffee, rather than steeped.
Nose is all coffee - no acidity, roastiness is smooth, intense but mellow if that makes sense. Not an overly dark roast, maybe a hint of cocoa underneath, but this one is all coffee.
Taste follow suit - smooth, refined coffee flavor comes out in a huge way, with some cocoa underneath. Roasty, but absolutely no acidity. Nice.
Mouthfeel is very good - thick and a bit viscous, but enough carbonation to provide good support. The lack of acidity leads me to think I could drink this one all night long. Well done beer.
Serving type: on-tap
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 Bottle, 75 cl. Dark reddish brown with a tiny tan head. Malty and vanilla tones. Malt , fruit, vanilla and hops. Full body with a bitter / fruity finish . MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Amazing. Bold black pour with huge aromas of roast, coffee and chocolate.
Taste matches the aroma, but the coffee flavor is really good and there is hitns of smoke and wood. Great! onystrom (1334) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2012
Draft, but sadly too cold served by the brewer himself :-) Black color with small head. Lots of nice coffee flavor. From my Backlog Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of dark chocolate, bitter coffee, spicy, some burned sugar, molasses. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, bitter, some dark fruity hints, coffee, touches of cherries with some astringency on the finish. Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2011
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a black color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of coffee and caramel with some dark fruit underneath. Has a sweet coffee taste with some nice chocolate notes on the finish. Smooth and tasty.

On tap at the Hopcat in the summer of 09. A black pour with a huge head. Raw coffee aroma. The fresh roastedness comes through over the course of sampling. Chocolate roasted malt flavors. Lightly sweet. Chocolate coffee finish. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2011
Best brooklyn beer on tap at the blind tiger so far. Typical black pour with a small tan head. Bitter coffee and dark chocolate are quite standard on the nose. Much more comes out on the taste. Dark chocolate and thick fudge combine to make a very long lingering finish. Loving it italianjohn (3310) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Black pour tan head ... roasted and coffee aroma .... chocolately and sweet fruity/roasted coffee taste ... a very sweet brew with a bitter roasted finish ... not as intense as i expected but a good brew .... thought it would have way more roasted coffee flavor vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Draft. Black pour with tan head. Light coffee and chocolate malt aroma and flavors. Coffee could br more pronounced. Nickls (2616) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2010
(Old BA rate - cask)
Jet black color, and almost looks like oil in a glass. Very thin, tannish head. Dry-roasted coffee aroma, some booze sneaks in as well but not overwhelming. Not much else outside the coffee. Like the aroma, the coffee characteristics shine through. Alcohol is better hidden in the taste and doesn’t detract from the flavor. Just a hint of bittersweet chocolate among the roastiness. Thinner than it looks, but quite a decent body on this one. Very muted carbonation (expected for style AND on cask). Think the cask suits this brew well. Deceptively drinkable given the weight. Very coffee-forward
