Bottle poured in mug. Dark color with little creamy head, aroma are roast malt, coffee, nuts, hints of chocolate, very nice. Taste is well balanced coffee flavor mostly, grains with low bitterness... very drinkable, cant even feel the booze, i liked it

This got outvoted in the national head to head though it won at the fest I had it at by a HUGE margin. This was a very well done coffee beer before coffee beers were as prevelant as they are now. Super smooth and well put together.

On draft at Dan's. Being a skeptic of Sam Adams, it's not bad. The pour is really thin. More of a darker brown, with prominent ruby hues. The head is a slight off white and laces pretty good as it fades to a film. The aroma is all coffee. There is a light roast and then coffee. The taste is exactly like it smells. A subtle sweetness comes through about half way in, and then the roastyness takes over. The mouth feel is really really thin, and it takes away from the lasting flavors that is like to see. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Deep red-brown-black body. Potent coffee in nose and body, balanced by toasty notes. Dry with slight sweetness and massive cocoa notes. Astringent coffee finish.

decent body light tons of cold coffee. Not too sweet. Still not much depth.
