Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Burnt grain, and a sugary sweetness on the nose, weird aroma; same for the palate. The malt almost tastes smoked or burnt. Very off flavors. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016

At brewery. One of the worst coffee stouts I have ever had. Taste like Greene I roasted coffee beans. Astringent and gross aroma is the same. Nice head.

Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. Moderate coffee comes through in the aroma with supporting chocolate and a subtle toffee. Sweet and a bit roasty. Thicker mouthfeel. Big bodied and moderate carbonation.

Collective on Tap, Woodinville. Creamy brown-black with great cream head. Relatively mild roasty malt aroma, grainy sweet malt body. Barrel-like creamy alcohol, mellow, sweet. Pretty tasty and smooth. tmoreau (4303) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Shared 1 pint .9 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a ruby highlighted, black brown hue, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was green peppers and roasted coffee. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was dry & roasted, with a hint of fels naptha-like soapiness, and tar & earthy bitterness. Somewhat abrasive, and didn’t finish the sampler amount. Idiosynkrasie (7440) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
500ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, a touch of vanilla, fruity hints of blue grapes. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, hints of coffee, fruity notes of dark berries, blue grapes, dry overtones of corresponding fruit parings. Relatively light, more sessionable than kind of a sipper. edgallow (4165) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2016
