COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our quest to brew the quintessential coffee beer began over a cupping with the coffee gurus from Richmond’s Lamplighter Roasting Company. Their Ethiopia Sidamo coffee was masterfully roasted to highlight the single origin bean’s bright, crisp body and distinctive blueberry undertones, making it harmonize beautifully with our Russian Imperial Stout. May this beer warm your spirits in these brisk winter months.

Pours black in the glass with a thin cola colored head. Aroma of mocha/coffee liqueur. Slight ever so slight alcohol burn down the throat but in a pleasing way. Some flavor notes of coffee, bourbon, cola and cocoa. Overall, a tasty brew. Glad to have sampled it. Thanks to Dandman29 for the awesome birthday gift from 18 months ago. I’m surprised I had the willpower to sit on it this long!

Pours coffee brown with a nice buff head. Aroma features coffee, woody hop, toasted malt and coffee notes. Flavor delivers sweet mocha, roasted malt and molasses tones - delicious as all-get-out. Mouthfeel offers firm body and sassy fizz. Get yer coffee!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 Bottle. Dark black pour, minimal head. Big time coffee, roast, oak. Some bitterness but alcohol is hardly detectable. Lots of coffee. A lot. Good if you like bitter coffee.

dmac (6392) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Bluedog. Poured a medium to thicker body dark black with a creamy super light tan head. Aroma seems to be older, brown paper bag, old nut shells, sugary sweetness, burnt toast and more sweetness. Flavor of coffee cups, sugar, light hint of coffee, earth, touch of pepper and bad chocolate muffins. Medium to slightly fuller body and softer carbonation.

CloakedDagger (2658) - - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an almost opaque black only with a very vague reddish hue, head is creamy beige. Sweet vanillaish coffee aroma. Rich, sweet body, roasty, bitter chocolate and then fairly well integrated coffee accents. Finish is a little boozy. Nice if a little to the sweet side. 060916
