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.

Can shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is green peppers, coffee, bitter roasted malt, nutty, eh. Appearance is brown, light tan head, slightly hazy. Taste is green pepper, coffee, nutty, roasted malt, probably past its prime. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, peppery coffee aftertaste. Overall, I’m not a huge fan but would like another shot at it one day fresher.

Can. Pours black with a small beige head. Intense roasted coffee aroma. Big roasted malt flavor with this and dominant coffee notes. Full bodied and tastes almost like drinking coffee. Excellent.

Pours a reddish brown color with a bready light canvas colored head. Notes of chocolate coffee ice cream, fresh ground beans, and cookies. Really good. Made some car bombs later in the day with this as well.
