Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, Pizza Port tap takeover. It pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma is quite sweet with roasted malts, tobacco, coffee and coca nibs. Taste is roasted malts, coca, coffee and burnt sugar. Quite nice if a tad sweet. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013

Alla spina al brewpub di Ocean Beach. Colore nero impenetrabile con schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma intenso di cioccolato e caffè. Al palato meravigliosamente bilanciata con un amaro da tostatura molto pulito e intenso, finale leggermente erbaceo. Grado alcoolico ben nascosto e bunoa bevibilità Ottima birra boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Growler @ a recent bottle share... Poured dark black with a nice forming, light khaki head. This was seriously amazing. Wonderful cold-pressed coffee notes. With a hint of roast and malt sweetness. But overall the coffee was prevalent from the start to the finish on this one. Good coffee flavors too that were bright and vibrant not just plain old coffee flavoring in this beer. Could drink again, and again.

Tap at the Cask, Pimlico, 10/05/13.
Pitch black with a thin tan head.
Nose is coffee cake, brown sugars, dark roast malts, espresso coffee.
Taste comprises coffee, brown sugars, booze.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, light booze in the finish.
Booze well integrated, a little sweet at times but a half pint is bang tidy for this bad boy! Great stuff for a coffee beer lover like I ! The_Osprey (7984) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Keg, chilled, half pint. Browny head doesn’t endure for long. Some sherry in the smell. Taste is fairly intense sweet coffee with a little smoke, dark chocolate and very slightly sour. Coffee dominates. Medium mouthfeel but not foamy. Pretty good stuff. Some aspects are very good and this beer would get a top mark if the flavours were slightly more complex and if there was a longer aftertaste. harrisoni (18577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Lot of choc. Very choccy and its very choccy. And huge coffee. lovely coffee no big alcohol. Really good. onceblind (9630) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
At Avery Strong Ale Fest 2013--black pour with a thin khaki head. Stupid wonderful aroma of fresh brewed black leathery coffee with a gentle dark cocoa undertone. Flavor is heavily leaning on that coffee note, with a strong coffee roastiness, a bit of fresh leather, dark semi sweet chocolate, and more coffee. I could have personally used more chocolate, but this is THE coffee beer for coffee heads. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, oak, coffee and bitter chocolate. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of coffee, roastiness and bakers cocoa with a smooth dry lingering coffee finish.
