Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours black as night with one finger of tan head. Aroma is espresso and burnt sugar. Taste is smoke, coffee and some burnt malt. There is a ton of bitterness in the back of this one. Similar to KBS, but just not as boozy, but equally biting.

Poured black with a thick brown head like what’s left in the top of a great root beer float that has sat and warmed a bit. First impression is full flavored and drinkable being not as thick as experted. A bit more alcohol burn than would like, but great coffee dark fruit and malt flavor with a bit of lingering sour. Would be great if it had an aroma to match, but pretty weak.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a thin, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark coffee, dark chocolate, and a little hops. Flavor very strong on the roasted malts, probably one of the strongest of this flavor I have tasted in a beer. In the words of Paul Wall, "Got a cup full of that oil." It’s no KBS or Breakfast stout, but it is very good.

abcfan (928) - New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2011
Awesome brew. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Coffee and malt aromas. Very smooth drinking, tastes like chocolate and iced coffee, with a light cherry finish. Chewy mouthfeel, finishes easy with a little booziness. Would drink again.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2011
The beer pours really dark with a beautiful caramel and bright cinnamon head. The aroma is awesome - chocolate and sweet malts. The flavor starts off with sweet and malty on top of a delicious and creamy rich body. Then settles with a bit of smooth sweet booziness. It tastes so good!
