Coffee adds great flavor and aroma to the base beer. A little thin, but tastes great.

2015 bomber with gold/beige/yellowish wax. Thanks to HOPSareKEY for sharing. The adjuncts are really popping on this one. Coffee, cinnamon, chilli, vanilla, chocolate, fudge brownies. A full on flavor assault thats blended perfectly. More flavor in one sip than some breweries can offer in their entire lineup. This is the best in the cake lineup.

Pours jet black, like motor oil. Aroma of coffee, taste of coffee. Thats all there is, loads of good coffee flavor. The rough thing about this is knowing the base beer. This is a solid coffee impy stout but it completely destroyed the base.

50belair (3551) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with a mocha head. Chocolate and cinnamon bouquet. Maybe a bit below the previous two years. The heat from the chills and coffee dominate. Really muted cinnamon and chocolate notes. The body seems a bit thinner.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Black. Medium khaki head and a thin collar. Stains the glass a little. Strong coffee aroma. Cinnamon equally strong. A bit of green pepper aroma, too. Coffee dominates the flavor. Spices arent far behind. A bit of dark chocolate before a spicy pepper finish. Medium heavy. Coffee seems to mute a bit of the peppers, which I dont mind.
