incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Pretty creamy, but i dont get to much coffee or cappachino in the smell or palate, even when warmed. Tasted more like a typical stout to me. Some toffee/coco aftertaste w a little coffee. Smooth for 8.3 ABV

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
pours a transparent near black shade of brown. its topped with a fluffy tan head that leaves when it damn well pleases...aroma is initially metallic malt. but it calms to reveal dark roasty malts, chocolate, cream and spent coffee grounds. flavor is the same with the addition of some vanilla notes. its quite dry and bitter with a slight hop presence. it also finishes dry and bitter with a lingering burnt coffee aftertaste. the body is a bit thin but gets creamier as it warms...

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Opaque brown with a tall tan head that leaves generous lacing on the glass. Sweet brown sugar aroma with roasted notes. Thick body with an intense chocolaty sweetness up front lending to a roasted bitterness of coffee flavors.

Pours with a light brown, five-finger head that goes slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Virtually black color. Nose is roasted coffee. Smooth, roasted/burnt coffee flavor. Lingering burnt coffee after taste. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Haggens Beaverton, OR.

mar (5371) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
black pour with a head that lasts quite a while. lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose but thats about it. the head tastes like coffee and its actually quite thick for what i was expecting. nice coffee aftertaste as well.

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours very dark brown with brown head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor also has lots of roast coffee and chocolate with some cream in there. Palate is a little thinner than i expected but still nice. Overall a pretty nice beer. Has a good alcohol punch but not overbearing(although my buzz is strong right now). pretty nice beer.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours opaque with small tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt, fruity hops, tasty roast. Creamy and full with a nice long bitter finish. Serious alcohol kick. Quite delightful.
