Bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy light tan head. Loads of coffee in aroma with lighter notes of coconut and caramel. Heavy complex flavour of coffee beans, coconuts, light citrus, chocolate and caramel. Nice one indeed! YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2010
At a tasting: sourish green coffee, pina colada mainly in the aroma, weak nutty notes, lots of roasted malts, some burnt notes, medium creamy body, dry sourish finish, real good but not great.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Yuval. Black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee beans, nuts and light fruity hints. Sweet-sourish flavor of roasted malt, green coffee beans, a bit of nuts, a bit of alcohol, woody hints, herbal and fruity hints and a bit more bitterness in the finish. Strange but not bad. slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 13, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2014 "it’s rare when a beer you’ve built up exceeds expectations, and since Stone is my favorite brewer, hopes were sky high for this one. not to worry, though, it did not disappoint. one of the best, if not THE best, porter that i’ve ever had. the aroma was incredibly rich and decadent. coffee, chocolate, roasted malt...with flavor to match and a wonderfully smooth full body. Awesome, awesome, awesome beer!"

At a tasting, thanks yk23, smallish head, very dark brown colour, almost opaque, roasted almost burned coffee aroma, mollases and dark old honey, sour flavour of green coffee,barnyard and a touch of soy, not to big bodied. Original and excellent. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle: Dark black color with a nice tan head. The nose is roasty with a thick residual amount of coffee and fruit. Not getting as much coconut or macadamian nuts, but I love the concept and they have their place as placebo placeholders on the label anyway. Full bodied and very complex, easy to quaff and easier still to drink. I need to get me a couple more of these.
