16 oz can. Pours dark brown with a big bubbly tan head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.jgb9348 (6281) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2017
The aroma is sweet lactose and roast coffee.
The flavor is sweet sugary lactose and chocolate with big ashy roast coffee and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, a decent coffee stout. A bit too much lactose and ashy roast that don’t mesh well.
Rich dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall tan head on top and a nice opaque glow of brown, about 70% opaque. Aroma of pure molasses, brown sugars, roasted and toasted malts, some oats, a little bit of earth and cereals and another bite of anise and some spice. Medium-bodied; Rich roasty flavours with a big dose of metal and earth along with some chocolate and caramelised sugars, coupled with a good toast and nutty finish that shows a lot of fuller bodied notes near the end. Aftertaste has a pleasant complexity with the toasted malts and earthiness by far the strongest, but also with a little dose of sweetness and even spice with a smooth finish of chocolate and even some bread and unfinished yeast noticeable as well. Overall, a well-structured and nicely flavoured stout with almost a porter-like flavour, but some good chocolate and spice flavours and a good body with a smooth complexity near the end make this very nice, especially when the weather isn’t perfect outside! I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$2,59 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2017. thecleyman (25) - - MAY 20, 2017
Strong coffee taste. Dark color. Tastes alright. If you love tons of coffee in your beer, then you will love it.

On tap at Mani. Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has coffee and chocolate with a light dark grain backbone. Flavor has mild chocolate, coffee and dark grains combining.

Tasty. Personally enjoy sweeter, creamier tasting stouts. However this does the trick! Better than most stouts out there. It’s refreshing with a hint of beer and coffe taste. Can’t write anything bad about it. I’d definitely buy it again.

4pack of tallboy cans from Flick’s in Lambertville: brown-black pour, thin tan head. aroma of coffee, molasses, rich chocolate. Taste follows suit with big coffee, herbal bitter, dark chocolate, bit ashy. thin palate. mood beer for me. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Purchased at Siciliano's Market in Grand Rapids, MI; enjoyed at home on a cool late summer evening. Appearance is pitch black with a rich tan head, looks great. Aroma is very much heavy on the coffee notes along with dark chocolate, smells awesome. Taste is very good, dry and bitter with espresso flavor, delicious. Would have again. zubblwump (100) - Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2016 Aroma is all coffee. Pours nice and dark with a thick dark mocha head. Taste is sweet...tastes like an iced coffee, which isn’t a great thing in my book. Very little alcohol taste present. Nice and thick, but too sweet.
