A: The beer pours thick and black with a somewhat small mocha head.
S: Enormous amounts of coffee on this one. Tons of roasted malt and chocolate with more and more coffee. A nice vanilla note as well as a touch of caramel and toffee.
T: Vanilla and roasted malt make a brief appearance before being usurped by the incredibly powerful coffee flavors. Some creamy dark chocolate along with a touch of caramel sweetness.
M: Medium to full bodied with a smooth feel on the tongue.
O: Just awesome. Easily the best Cigar City beer I’ve had. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2011

Poured an opaque dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of strong black coffee, heavy roastiness, bitter chocolate and a faint hint of vanilla. Palate was full bodied and smooth. Flavors of strong coffee, big roastiness, bitter chocolate and a bit of vanila hiding in the background with a smooth lingering roasty coffee finish. djd07 (14517) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Growler thanks to Diego during RBWG. Pours a very dark brown with no head. The aroma is roast,cacao, and vanilla. Thick mouthfeel, nice roast, rich coffee, light smokiness, really impressive. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Nitro, RBWG. Large mocha brown head atop black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee, some raisin/cherry, bittersweet chocolate, cream. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, raisin, some dark chocolate. Smooth/creamy full body with alcohol well contained. A pretty amazing Coffee IS, though I guess this rating makes me a homer.

(Nitro) Pours an opaque black body with a creamy khaki head that provides a spectacular cascading effect in the glass. The head was so creamy you could tell who was drinking it with their tan mustaches. Aroma of dominating coffee, roasted malt, raisins, and chocolate. Flavor is massively coffee and roasted malt with chocolate, toffee, raisins, and molasses with a creamy mouthfeel. Probably the best mouthfeel I have experienced in a beer. hopdog (12541) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2016

Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mike’s 50th birthday extravaganza. Pours a deep jet black, with no head. I’ll have to agree that this one may have been better on nitro, and that’s a rarity since I usually think nitro is overused. Huge coffee on the nose, blows away any other coffee beers I can think of for the amount of “I’m pretty sure this is coffee, and not a beer with coffee in it” that I was getting. Deep roast, just loads of it, one dimensional really, nothing but roast and coffee. Like drinking an iced coffee, sort of too much. Long coffee and roast. Light alcohol on the finish. Still awesome, but maybe a bit too much.
