On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids. Dark as night with a lasting tan head. Big bold cup of joe aroma and sublt cocoa nib. Slightly astringent but bold as hell roasted coffee flavor with dark chocolate abundant. I love coffee and this is a whole lot of coffee. Morning beer. Better than starbucks... onceblind (9663) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2012
On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids. Black with a foamy light tan head. Big amazing aroma of a freshly brewed pot of expensive coffee, with just a touch of chocolate. The flavor has a bit too much o that roasty coffee flavor--like the dregs at the bottom of a French press. But it has so much coffee tones that it’s a bit hard to taste the beer. It’s like finely carbonated cool coffee. Not enough beery-ness, though there is a notable dark sweetness. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Sampled during my 2010 GABF trip. Of course I crushed it with CaryTheDude. Dark brown almost black pour with tan head. Aroma of rich, strong coffee, mild chocolate and lots of roast. Strong coffee flavor, lots of roast, mild sweetness towards the finish. Full bodied, finishes long and roasty. Great beer. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Feel like you’re fading towards the end of the night? Grab one of these. It’s quite the eye-opener. Intense coffee and roast nose and flavor. Wonderful thick mouthfeel. You can almost chew the coffee in this brew. My head was spinning by the end of the pint. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011

Big coffee aroma. Black strong in alcohol smooth and rich on the palate with a bitter and slightly dry finish.

(Draught during GABF week at the brewery) Guess I’m in the minority on this one. Jet black pour with tan bubbles. Nose of real coffee, cream, acidic and reminds me of fair trade. Tastes more like real coffee itself, more so than any beer I’ve had previously. It’s so roasty with no sweetness though to back it up that I just can’t get into it. Not creamy, and linger of umami. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2011
(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, mint, and chocolate. Flavor of coffee, roasted malt, nuts, and chocolate with a dry finish. nuplastikk (6277) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Draft at OB Lyons. Pitch black body, beige head. Huge coffee aroma. Sweet, lots of coffee and chocolate flavor. Mellow carbonation. Remarkably well done. Has some oak-like tones. Very nice. BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 27, 2010

Sample at Oskar Blues. Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is straight up coffee. Flavor is straight up coffee. I’ve said I don’t want subtlety in my coffee beers, so this is good, but could stand to be a bit more complex.
