UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft. Dark brown. Big creamy beige head, lasting. Expresso, chocolate, hops. Smooth bitter finish. Great coffee character and definitely doesnt take a backseat. I really enjoy beers that use coffee well and this is a winner. Rich and flavorful.

Draft. Great beer! Chocolate, coffee, spices and some herbal hops. Less bitter than I was expecting. I would gladly drink this again.

Draft at Dark Lord Day. Wow. Wasn’t too sure about adding coffee to a black ipa, but I love self-righteous ale, so I gave it a shot. Definitely give it a try if you find it.

Darker than the regular Sublime, this beer exudes more espresso than that from the dark malts. This pairs well with the citrus hops. Flavor is a tad more astringent but the black malts still come out strong and the hop bitterness balances well.

On tap at brewery. Black with a short lived creamy tan head. Bitter sweet chocolate, coffee, and citrus aroma. Kick you in the teeth coffee grounds taste up front followed by a bitter bite and finishing with light chocolate covered citrus flavors and a lingering dry bitterness. Not bad.

radagast83 (8299) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Tap at Churchkey during CBC. Poured a deep dark rich color with a slightly tan head. Aromas were malty notes, some herbal hop character wrapped around a LOT of coffee notes. Flavor was bitter coffee, malts, plenty of fresh tasting hop character. Really enjoyed this one.

Tap Stone O’Side. Black pour with a ring of tan foam. Aroma is rich expresso mixed with sharp pine and roasted malt. Taste is expresso, resinous pine, bitterness, and roast. Clean, almost creamy mouthfeel. Excellent.

>> Stone SSRA with Birdrock Coffee Roasters Nicaraguan coffee added. Not making a new entry. Clear deep brown pour, thicker dark brown lace. Nose is rich tiramisu, fresh toasted macadamia. Taste is silky, toasted macadamia, mild roast derived acid, powerful but soft non-astringent coffee. Easy 4.0. Excellent.

Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
A deep dark reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, dark caramel with coffee beans, roasty and nice. In mouth, a nice roasted caramel with loads of bitter coffee, burned notes, chocolate, very nice.
