Pours a black with full, robust, darker tan head. The head is creamy looking as well and is long lasting. Aroma contains chocolate, coffee, some roasty malts, and hints of vanilla. The taste is similar to the aroma. There is a balance of chocolate and coffee, with the coffee impressions perhaps being a bit dominant. Through all of this, there is a tasty vanilla present underneath. Aftertaste is a quick coffee and vanilla. Medium in body, with a thinner, creamy texture. Not a whole lot of carbonation in here. Overall, I enjoyed this one. It doesn’t really do anything all that different than others of this style, but it is done quite well. DCLawyer (2841) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2013

16oz can, thanks to robotopera. Shared with b3shine. Dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Some loose dots of lace. Medium, slightly bigger body. Kind of a chewier texture, lighter carbonation. Nice coffee aroma, some dark chocolate, light roasty malt. Malty sweet taste, light on the bitter. Really nice coffee stout. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2013
16 oz can to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Solid beer. nuplastikk (6252) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2013
16oz can picked up in Milwaukee. Pours a very attractive opaque brown-black body with a creamy beige head. A really solid coffee stout for sure, somewhat watery smooth black malt body with a pleasant coffee flavor. The bitterness, and most of the flavor is coffee derived..the smooth clean malt body really lets it shine. Well done, very pleasurable to drink.

Very nice -- I'm always impressed with flavorful low ABV stouts for some reason. Strong stout aroma after a froth less pour. Quite roasty malt flavors. Very strong roasty coffee notes. Recommended!

Dark brown pour with a thick rocky brown head and some nice lacing. Aroma is quite light again in the brand... hints of roasted coffee a little bit of coccoa powder. Palate is lightly acidic a bit thinner than I like my stouts but coats and holds form well. Flavor is a fairly acidic roasted coffee note some touches of chocolate in the finish. Drinkable but not great a bit too much of the coffee bitterness in the finish w/ out enough balance. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pint can. Poured dark brown with a short-ish lived toasted coconut head. The aroma picked up sweet, very enticing coffee and lesser mocha notes, with light earthy and herbal accents.. loved it! The flavor found similar stuff.. tasty, moderately-roasted coffee throughout, with touches of coffee, tobacco, and earth too.. greener coffee beans around the edges.. finished with nice balance and plenty more tasty coffee. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with just enough carbonation.. very good feel and flow.. great beer! TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Can from RG. Pours black with nice coffee aroma. Lots of coffee and some vanilla on the tonuge, nice sweetness shining through. Very solid actually. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2013
Thanks for the share OmegaX. This one poured a bold black with some nice lacing and a thin tan head. It smells like fresh coffee and dark chocolate with subtle earthy tones. The taste is bold and bitter; some cocoa, chocolate covered coffee beans and earth among a slightly hoppy finish make for quite the brew. I loved it - if you love coffee you will too!!!
