650 ml bottle. Black color with beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, some vegetables - potato. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma but better. Medium to full oily body with soft carbonation. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Can courtesy of a kind soul at Beer Blogger’s Conference 2016. Pours a deep stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some roast, some burnt toast, some black coffee, and some chocolatey sweetness. Flavor is similar with roast, toast, coffee, and some sweetness. Medium in body and delightful overall. koleminer20 (3599) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
On draft at Al’s. The pour is jet black. There is a thick cap of darker khaki head and no lace as it works down. The aroma is pretty good. It’s leaving a lot to be desired. It’s coffee, sure, but there is a sweetness to it that is definitely a little lactose based. Other than that there is a little roast, but it needs something else. The flavor is better. There is a brighter coffee. The roast is tones down a little bit and the lactose sweetness just about goes away. The light roast is key to helping the coffee pop. The mouth feel is thick and chewy with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly roasty, coffee dominated aftertaste. Really good stuff. ebone1988 (1931) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Sample at Pizza Boy with koleminer20. Aroma is coffee crazy, chocolate, roasted malt, bitter, delicious, holy hell. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured decently thick. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, bready, decent. Mouthfeel is heavy body, light carbonation, coffee and some sweetness in the aftertaste. Overall, solid solid stuff.

Pours deep dark black with a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, roast, earthy and dark chocolate. Taste is coffee bitters with dine sweetness. Medium bodied, oily and sick texture. Excellent.

32oz crowler thing poured into some appropriate glassware by GenDV110+OT. Thanks Donny! Enjoyed on his mom’s couch. Could not finish lest I send back all over his mom’s couch. Probably best not tasted after about 100 ounces of KBS earlier in the evening. Dammit Donny. Black with small tan head. Tons of coffee with dark chocolate, toffee. Really really good. ryanscourt (1477) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Nice and roasty...thick syrupy texture to match the thick flavors. Strong coffee notes. Would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Crowler shared by a friend. Pitch black pour with a medium light brown head. Aroma of coffee, sweet chocolate and cream. Sweet malt and chocolate flavor with slight alcohol warmth giving way to a big, roasty coffee finish. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 9, 2016
CROWLER!!!! Black color, small tan head. Huge coffee, ash, charcoal, rich chocolate. Big, rich, dry, ashy coffee ground and bitter 90% cacao. Medium sweet, yet very drying. Smooth though. Then a bitter brutal dying finish. Shooooot arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2015
