Can: Very dark brown pour yielding a finger of creamy tan head. Strong aroma of fresh coffee and cocoa... some semblance of Kahlua... lovin it! Lots of coffee in the flavor, really more of a high-quality medium roast than dark espresso. A little hop bitterness along for the ride. I wish more of the aroma would have translated to the taste, but this is still very refreshing (I still love this style) and overall very well done. Maverick34 (3454) - New York, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Canned. Dark brown pour. White head. Dark roasty malts and coffee aroma and bitter chocolate aftertaste good. TomDecapolis (4619) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a deep black with a medium creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of coffee, milk chocolate and vanilla. Flavor of vanilla, roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. partywithanM (104) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - MAR 21, 2013
12 oz Can. Like the Happy Camper IPA, this is wonderfully flavorful. I love the wonderful rich full bodied coffee flavor. The stout provides the perfect platform for the richness and complexities of a good cup of coffee. If you start the day off with a cup of coffee this is a perfect way to start your evening. gregwilsonstl (2781) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 From can. Dark black. Beautiful thick tan head. Mild. Tastes like an iced coffee. Nice plain packaging. Unexpected subtle hot pepper aftertaste.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Dark viscous brown with a thin, beige head of foam. Aroma has coffee and some lactic notes. Sort of weird. Taste is roasty with some mild bitterness kicking in from the coffee. Thick mouthfeel. The lactic notes in the nose thankfully don’t translate to the taste. M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Extremely dark in the glass considering alc ercentage following dark iced tea pour, nice full green coffee beans, clean carbonated body for the style, nice smooth lively mouth and after. A beer truly great for breakfast. It’s no beer geek, but it’s a great bfast stout, especially for the price. Non frigged cans are likely to have significant aluminum overtones. I’d stick to frigged sixers from Santa Fe Iphonephan (7628) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2013
From a 12 oz can in Breckenridge CO. Pours black with a tan head. Coffee aroma. Flavors of coffee, toasted malts and licorice. Quite nice. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - MAR 10, 2013
12oz. can. Plenty of strong coffee in the nose, as expected, along with a copious amount of roasted, almost charred malt, dusty cocoa, faint citric and earthy hop and a touch of caramel. Almost completely black in color, just a highlight of dark brown around the edges of the glass, and a very fine, fading head. Flavor profile is likewise full of coffee character, dark and roasty, with a moderate amount of caramel/toffeeish malt sweetness to go along, as well as a fairly strong bitterness that seems to be derived from both the hops and roasty black malt character, finishing dry and with just a hint of alcohol, drying out substantially on the finish. Finely effervescent and smooth on the palate, a bit thinner than the majority of Imperial Stouts but this may also be implied by the relatively low alcohol content for the style (8% abv.), body is fairly full. This was pleasant enough, but lacking in complexity to an extent, and sort of "just another coffee stout" for me. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle; very dark brown to black in color with a light brown head; some lacing. Aroma of coffee, caramel, roasted malt, fruit, peppers and fresh veggies. Flavor was really smooth and very drinkable. Maybe not as complex as the aroma, but better. An obvious java/coffee component, but not overpowering to the detriment of the flavor. Slight sweetness, some light bready and caramel notes, a bit of an earthy hop finish. Quite enjoyable.
