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.

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 (2147) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013

Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - on tap. Viscous, deep dark black pour, thick, sticky mocha colored head that leaves a thick film of lacing. Aroma of Cuban coffee, cocoa beans. Delectable flavor with Cafe Con Leche notes, some chocolate wafers, a touch of vanilla, some Kahlua notes, Creamy, thick mouthfeel. Excellent, surprise find at Whole Foods.

Bottle thanks to retorp. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Yellow laces like crazy. Nose is a ton of espresso, roasted malt, chicory, and the bitterness inherent in those. Flavor is a lot of coffee and espresso flavor, but balanced overall. Lots of different roasted flavors in the beer, and it refuses to be pigeonholed into being labeled a "coffee beer." I swear it has the caffeine to match, too. Very good beer- will stand up with any of the top ten coffee beers. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Rich black with tan head. Anyone familiar with Cuban coffee will instantly recognize the cafecito looks. Aroma is bang-on cortadito, but better than coffee. Creamy luscious mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated and smoother than a nitro pour. Finishes with a cream flavor, a sly nod to the leche. The flavors are long, lingering with a deep roasted bean flavor permeating each sip and perpetuating throughout the drink. Actually--this is a perfect rendition of a coffee brew. Impressive. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Joe. Big thanks! I’ve been wanting to try this for ages. Pours black with thin tan head. Nose is big roast and roasted strong coffee. Flavor is charred malts, creamy cocoa, rich espresso. Mouthfeel was nice and full. Hints of sweet sugars, mild oxidation. burg326 (5479) - Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2012
On draft at brewery, poured a dark black color with a little tan head. Aromas of freshly brewed coffee, light milk, and some cream. Flavors are robust coffee, light roasted malt, and sweet milk. I have been waiting for this one to come back on tap for a long time, and it did not disappoint. Another solid stout from CCB. jordinc (105) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Special tap at RedlightRedlight I think it sold out in less than 24 hrs. Pours black with tan head that recedes rather quickly. Aroma of coffee... nose was stuffy so couldn’t make out much more unfortunately. Slid down thick and sweet, great body and mouth feel. Subtle coffee notes combined with roasted malts. Thought this was a really good stout, will get it again if I ever stumble across it.
