UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Two words describe this beer best, YUM. Well, maybe one word. But its yum squared. It pours very dark with light brown head. Good gravy, the aroma is amazing. It is full of robust rich dark roasted coffee beans that nearly bring me to my knees. Wow. Behind that are notes of dark chocolate and a touch of heavy cream. The flavor does not disappoint. I love the full rich decadent yummy very dark roasted coffee. Too many coffee flavored beers just smell and taste like Folgers crystal, meh. This beer has the goods with mouth watering espresso like coffee beans that I need to find and start making coffee with as soon as possible. Like the aroma there are supporting notes in the background like velvety dark chocolate mixing with a mildly drying lactose sensation that play together in harmony with the bold coffee notes. Wow.

Brought this back from the brewery compliments of Wayne and shared with my tasting group.... Coffee anyone? At cap off the sweet and bitter espresso aroma filled the table. The color is as advertised Black and the mouth feel yummy. I think the milky part is surprisingly balanced like a good barrister would pour at your favorite coffee house. To date one of my top 50. zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2014
On tap at Brass Tap in Pembroke Pines. Pours black with a creamy brown head and gear aroma of straight coffee. Taste is delicious, tons of coffee and espresso up front with sweet creamy chocolate notes and roasted malt leading to a smooth, java finish.

Dark coffee cascading appearance with steamed milk head. Looks like a gourmet coffee! Silky smooth on the palette. Malty, roast coffee but not over done. Masterpiece brew! strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2015
Nitro draft pour. Looks almost like an espresso coffee with crema on top. Smooth, as expected, rich, a little sweet but balanced with some coffee and bitter chocolate. An excellent stout for the style.

Bottle, huge thanks to Joey for digging this out. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose has a great balance between roasted malt and coffee. Medium to full body with a creamy mouth feel. Extremely tasty, lots of sweet malt and Cuban coffee with lesser notes of chocolate and caramel. Can’t wait for them to make this again. youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - APR 1, 2013
On Tap at Ale and the Witch. Pours almost-black with a small creamy head that leaves a solid ring of lacing. Espresso and creme brulee aroma with some roasted malts. Heavy coffee up front, then sweet milk and a little caramel - tastes exactly like a well-made iced coffee in beer form. None of the bitterness that a lot of coffee stouts finish with. One of my favorite CCBs. Reynolds314 (3441) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2013
This is realllllly tasty stuff. Tons of roasty esspresso and sweet vanilla bean with a smooth silky body. Sweet but not cloying as it fades to great coffee flavors. This is a beauty. jjgmd (2161) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
