From my notes of April 19, 2008
It poured a near pitch black with some hues of red and a tan head of foam that was about 1 finger deep.
The smell was of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Pretty nice.
First sip revealed flavours of coffee and roasted malt and further sips gave me some chocolate...None of the flavours are in your face, just smooth, balanced, and easy drinking. It finishes with a touch of sweetness and some bitterness from the coffee.
Medium mouthfeel here and overall, this is just a nice example of the style that won't overwhelm you taste wise, it's nice and it's refreshing. Good brew. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Nitro head above a dark brown body. Bursting coffee aroma, with hints of juicy malts. In the flavor, the coffee addition wasn’t overdone. It paired well with the dark malts to create a complex roast and fruit flavor. Would be a really good beer if it wasn’t watery and nitrogenated.

Light coffee nose. Medium lasting head, body is a dark mahogany, clear. Taste is all coffee, very very bitter and mineralized tasting. Not hoppy, bitterness from grains/coffee. Huge roastiness as well. Was too watery though, especially for the style. Good, but somewhat one diminisional.
