50 can, Fargo, ND, USA. Like smelling a cup of coffee with a splash of rootbeer. Head disappears quickly, pure coffee in the mouth. Sweet creeping flavor once the coffee wears down. Tastes like a cold black coffee with 4 spoons of sugar (in a good way).

Can thanks to MatSciGuy. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee beans. The malt in faintly detectable under the huge coffee bean aroma. Light cinnamon and light chocolate pudding. This is an impressive aroma. if I was blindfolded, I would have guessed fresh roasted coffee beams for sure. Not surprisingly, flavor is huge fresh-brewed coffee and a nice malty backbone. A handful of other mild dark flavors like tobacco and hints of smoke also present but they are incredibly minor compared to the awesome coffee flavor. If you hate coffee, you’ll hate this. I only kind of like coffee, but I love this beer. Not very complex, but certainly unique and quite tasty.

At a tasting, thanks David, small light brownish head, clear dark copper colour with with dark red taints, distinct aroma of fresh grounded roasted coffee, malty aroma with something soapy, strong distinct coffee dryness. The coffee traits are the hallmarks of this beer, but behind it is boring and one dimensional.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Re-rate 9/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown with amber hues and a nice beige head. Great aroma full of coffee beans, dark chocolate and nuts. Bittersweet flavor with some roastiness, lots of coffee beans, some nuttiness and a bit of dark chocolate. Finishes with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied. Very good stuff. 8/4/7/3/15=3.7

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2009
can, pours dark brown with a tall frothy tan head. Aroma is very roasty, slightly nutty. Dark malt, coffee, almonds. Smells just like some of the great dark lagers of Prague. Wow, very rich beer. Tons of coffee flavors and a nice dark malt base but the coffee really shines. It lingers in a bitter coffee grounds finish. Nice smooth mouthfeel

MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2009
16oz can This poured reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma is nutty and malty, with lots of used coffee grounds. Taste is roasted malt and coffee giving way to a slightly sweeter finish with some additional chocolate notes. Nothing particularly complex, but just really well done. The high quality coffee they use shines through particularly well.
