Very dark brown colour with a thick, light brown espuma. Rich aroma is full of roast, with some sweet malt. Very rich. Roasty, with tons of sweetness. This does replicate the Cuban coffee experience. Wonderful balance and assertiveness. A top flight coffee stout. jtclockwork (16582) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft. Pours coffee beans, creamer, milk sugar, hazelnut and cocoa. Medium body. Smooth. Ferris (15275) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Draft - Nitro - Nice milky coffee notes. Deep jet brown with a nice rich light brown head. Sweet coffee and milk with caramel. Nice and creamy. djd07 (14517) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours black with medium beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is brown sugar, cinnamon, roast. Medium body, strong roast coffee, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nice bitter dry finish, very good. Tmoney99 (14490) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Tap. Poured a black color with an average fizzy tan head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee and smoked malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark coffee sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of long duration. Standout.

12oz bottle @Tampa Wkly Gathering–pours a brown ring for a head and midnight black color. Aroma is coffee/chickory-dark malt. Taste is coffee/chickory-dark malt, ashy, some earthy hops. Not my style, but awesome for style. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2011 Draft... Pours black with a small, creamy, light brown head. Good retention. The aroma is an acrid marriage of rich, dark chocolate and espresso, along with dabs of vanilla, molasses and soy sauce. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Espresso bitterness is perfectly balanced by chocolate sweetness and a lightly acidic note. Lengthy, bitter, coffee finish. My after-breath smells like coffee, not booze. Perfect nightcap! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Growler. Black pour, brown head. Loads of coffee, creamy flavored, lactose. Reminds me of a Cuban coffee. Awesome! gnoff (10367) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2014

Cask at Cigar City (brewery location) on January 25, 2014.
Black color, dark brown head. Coffee, roasted scent. Sweet, coffee taste. Coffee aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet finish.
Draught at the brewery on February 7, 2017.
Nitro version listed at 6% ABV.
Clear black color, dense tan head. Sweet, coffee scent. Coffee, roasted, smooth taste. Medium smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Re-entering older ratings. Une bière légère brune; couleur café au lait et c’est exactement ce que l’on retrouve tout au long de la dégustation. Une présence de stout qui est agrémentée par ce fini café au lait allant sur le lactose avec des notes de caramel, malt grillé et bien sur le café Naviera qui est enivrant.
