Bottleshare BBQ at Dave L’s, PA - 27/05/12.
Black with a thin tan head.
Coffee forward nose, lots of it, roast malt, sweet sugar in the background.
Lots of coffee again in the taste, a little wood and vanilla, quite sweet.
Medium body, drinkable. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle pours a inky black brew with a thin brown head. Scent is coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malts and some smoke. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Draft at capones. Pours pitch black with no head to speak of. The aroma has a little chocolate, coffee, mild roast. The taste blows the aroma out of the water. There is tons of coffee with a sweet chocolate finish. Great palate. Really good stuff. Brewticular (86) - - AUG 12, 2012
This is a great example of a proper coffee stout. Coffee taste seems to come from the malts not from a coffee pot. This is a fantastic beer but lacks the body needed to make it a strong stout. nj_BierMaven (124) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville NJ. Opaque black in the glass, 1.5 inch head that rapidly dissipates. Toasty aroma, not exactly hoppy, just enough crisp bitter tannins to add balance. Can’t believe the ABV given the light balance and mouthfeel. Coffee and mild burnt toast balance against the malt, best I can say is "it tastes like I’ll have another!"

From the bottle stamped 011912-1921. It pours a rich dark brown to nearly black with an elegant, silky beige head. The aroma explodes with coffee, chocolate, and caramel goodness with just the slightest hint of a hop in the background. The body is in the medium range although slightly acidic. The warmer it gets the tastier it becomes. Flavors of chocolate and coffee with an above average bitterness lingering at the end. vmilaxer29 (412) - Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Seriously black pour. Immediate aroma of coffee, nuts, and roasted malt. Intense flavor with a lot of nuttiness, coffee, and roasted malt. Excellent beer!

Huge rOasted flavors. Tons of coffee, great job guys!!!!!!! richdorchak (16) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Enjoying a big glass of this beer as I am writing this review. Just cracked open a 22oz bottle fo this. Nice dark, dark brown color and thin foamy head. Beautiful taste and smell of coffee and some chocolate. Taste is not overpowering---I don’t want to say weak, but it is nice, has really nice flavors. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth. A very good, solidly above average coffee stout!

Bottle. Ok Longtrail seemed to get this one right. A solid coffee / chocolate aroma. The body was full with plenty of roast , coffee , chocolate and yeast in the flavor. A nice silky dry finish.
