On tap at Fox Cities Brewfest. Pour was dark with a dominant aroma of well blended coffee and chocolate. Flavor was kind of light balanced toward the copious amount of coffee then ending with some sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Nice brew.
pours black with a smallish brown head. Big coffee aroma and the expected toasted malt. Moderately bitter black coffee taste, again with burnt toasted malt. Pleasant slowly fading bitter coffee finish. Really good! muzzlehatch (4976) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI, served at cellar temp in a Guinness glass. While the color and texture is much like the near-opaque jet of Guinness or any other proper stout, alas the light tan head is soupy and quick-dying; no time to carve a shamrock or a moon in this foam...a touch of brown sugar arises alongside the dark coffee roastiness of the fairly expressive nose; there might be a bit of vanilla here as well but it’s shifty and subtle...on the tongue, surprisingly, no sweetness at all, just a heavy bitter chocolate-coffee roast throughout with a long bitter finish and an unfortunate hint of cardboard...the body could be a little fuller; carbonation a bit on the low side. Overall it’s reasonably well made, and the cardboard notes I mentioned fade over a few minutes of sipping, but I can’t say it really excites, and the fairly one-dimensional bitterness just doesn’t do it for me - if you love dry stouts it may be more up your alley. djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is nuts, roast, cocoa. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, bitter roast finish, good. BlackBeerPG (1015) - Darien, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2016

Packers suck. This beer is good. You get plenty of coffee. Pretty carbonated for the style.

A nice dark brown pour with a finger of creamy head that lasts most of the beer. Coffee, maybe even vanilla on the nose. Full roasty body, bitter coffee, maybe espresso? with a dry finish that lingers. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of dark roast coffee and mocha. Roasty flavors and slightly bitter coffee. Medium body. Better coffee stouts out there. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2015
12oz bottle from xroads. Thin black pour with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla cream, burnt malts, and a hint of berries. Taste of of burnt coffee grinds, chocolate, black malts, and hints of cardboard. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015

12 ounce bottle. Opaque black color. Moderate light tan head. Roasted malt nose has a big coffee-like character and smoky touch. Flavor is more roasted malt and coffee. Notes of smoke and cocoa as well. Medium bodied and creamy in midtaste. Finish is dry and roasty with some bitter resiny hops.
