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 (1962) - 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. HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2010
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.

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. Oakes (18865) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2009
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. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2009
Thanks so much for the handbottle tpd975!, thanks Greg. Shared with dalekliz, this one goes out to Sayid on lost for its badassness. Porus black with a light brown ring. Nose is sweet, and has a ridiculously strong coffe, and for that wow what a nose. Taste is out of this world coffee, with big sweet bitterness and a wallop of coffee. This is excellent and I’m glad I saved this to share with Liz. According to Liz "this is like Sayid because its sexy, smooth and really dangerous!". Excellent. and I don’t even drink coffee. dalekliz (925) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Hand bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! For our game of which Lost character is this beer most like, we’ve chosen Sayid - sexy, smooth, and really dangerous. Pours a deep black with a tan ring. Rich coffee aroma, sweet and creamy, with malt, caramel, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Huge taste, lots of coffee, malt, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Lingering rich coffee flavors. Creamy mouthfeel. Delicious. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Draft at the brewery on Christmas day. Black pour with a creamy tan head that laces. Massive aroma of fresh coffee beans, espresso, cocoa nibs, vanilla bean, roast and frothy milk. Layered, complex flavors of espresso, cocoa, vanilla beans, roasted malts with a earthy, bittersweet finish. Perfectly balanced, creamy and great beer.
