Bottle from cellar clearing. Pours out of the bottle like it’s on nitro with a thick brown head and chunky lacing. Nice aroma of sweetened coffee and dark malt. Flavor has some coffee notes like a dry espresso and some malt sweetness. Nice. ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A: Coffee, cocoa and a slight earthiness in the general aroma, plus some vanilla sweetness hints underneath the roasted malt, with more vanilla, coffee and chocolate notes.
A: Pours an opaque pitch black color with one-finger thick, fluffy dark brown head that faded quickly.
T: Very stong roasted notes initially, fading to coffee and bread flavors and the alcohol well hidden.
P: Medium body that tends to be slightly thin; light to mild carbonation; creamy and smooth texture.
O: An excellent coffee stout and certainly worth a try, or two, or three.... Lacks the mouth-feel, IMO to make it WORLD CLASS but certainly drinkable! jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
But then everything seems sort of light all the way through. It’s fine but nothing stands out. It’s like a really good decaf, it’s tasty, but something seems lacking in the end. Still, not a bad beer, and probably a crowd pleaser. Jasond612 (282) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2013
8/5/13 bought at roger wilco ($5.99) and brought and shred with Luke up the poconos.
Great aroma with tons of chocolate and espresso.
Great mouthful nice creamy taste less coffee on the tongue but tons of chocolate.
For the price, I'd buy again

Bottle back from beer run charlottesville. Smooth and milk chocolatey with a nice balance of bittersweet coffee and roasted malt notes. Subtle bit entertaining.

Dark black pour with a tan head. Big coffee and malts in the nose, nice bitterness. Solid. jivy26 (32) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Definitely a coffee dominant stout, which I enjoy. My wife’s an avid coffee drinker so she loved this one. charule (2273) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Draught at Mad Mex. Poured black with brown head. Sweet molassesy coffe aroma. Quite smooth bitterr coffee choco taste. Decent imp stout. dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Nice stout, but the coffee flavors are not too pronounced. Chewy and roasty with a creamy sweetness. samsmith33 (772) - - MAY 29, 2013
strong coffee aroma. dark black color with a tan head. flavor is bitter , very coffee dominated . I feel like the beer is lost in the coffee . low carbonation . not a bad sipping beer, but inferior to others of its style . still enjoyable.
