Dark brown with decent head retention. Great lacing throughout. Roasted dark coffee smell but not too strong. Not like a coffee porter. Sharp bitter flavor right away-not what you’d expect from a coffee beer. Coffee flavor for real coffee drinkers.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 True to its name the coffee is omnipresent in this beer. Great hop balance too.

Spot on coffee beer. For abv amazing. Yes better coffee beers out there but not at this abv. Nice falvors toasty dark morning roast with a bit of green coffee bean. Nice head that rounds out to a ring. A bit more body would be appreciated but at abv it is as expected

16 oz can from a four pack bought in Duluth, MN. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, green bell pepper, gun metal, toffee, vanilla, dark bread. Pours dark brown with a one finger beige head with good retention. Taste is lightly sweet and roasty, finishing lightly bitter. Good stuff.

Walnut brow with a creamy tan head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma with a hit of smoke. Strong coffee and dark malt flavor with a light bitterness. Creamy palate with a long smoky, malt finish. Very good

I absolutely love this beer. Yes, I hint of bitter but consistent with a strong coffee flavor. I love it on ice with cream and a dash of favorite coffee syrup.

Dark brown beer with a tan head. Strong aromas of dark coffee. Tastes of dark coffee, burnt wheat, charred notes, and some earth. Bitter coffee finish. A bit one dimensional and too heavy handed on the dark coffee. Decent.

Rich coffee aroma you’d expect from a big stout. Pours almost black brown. Taste is bright hops and coffee. Finishes light. Really good.

Pours brown with an off white head. The aroma has coffee, nuttiness and toasted malt. It has a nice medium body. The taste is quite coffee, but balanced just enough with the toasted malt. Very clean coffee like cold brew. Really tasty.

16 oz can shared with ebone1988 for the book. The pour is a dirtier dark brown color with a thicker khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace as it falls down to a thin ring. The aroma is very green peppery. The coffee on it is sharp and acidic. There is a malty sweetness to it and a that acidity. The green pepper is huge. The flavor is much of the same. The pepper doesn’t do it for me. I thought this should fade with time, but damn. The mouth feel is a little more watery and thin with a decent carbonation and a sharp acidic coffee and pepper on the finish. Not really my jam.
