Thanks to HoppyLuckyGoGo for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Bottled 7/17/13.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a tasty blend of cocoa and coffee flavors.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Liquid crude with a creamy tan head that sticks nicely and leaves many traces behind

Smell: Roasty, with plenty of coffee aromatics; milk chocolate, as well

Taste: Chocolate and coffee, up front, with milky sweetness building through mid-palate; dark fruit flavors linger, underneath, with the coffee building dramatically into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I like the way that this beer packs a whole lot of flavor without a high ABV; would be great to see this added to the regular Cigar City lineup

Bottle shared by some generous soul at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

A - Dark tan foam settles to a solid cap, thick collar, and specks of lace. Dark brown body.

S - Coffee, but also quite fruity, with some nebulous berry notes; reminds me a bit of Fruit Loops actually? Light notes of lactose and caramel, and no obvious alcohol presence.

T - The taste is a bit more charry and roasty, with less of the fruity and sweet characteristics. Moderate espresso bitterness. A bit less depth and balance here, but still fairly enjoyable..

M - Medium body, with a smooth and creamy texture, that's atypical for a coffee beer. Pleasant carbonation and minimal alcohol.

D - An enjoyable coffee stout, and superior to Kane's Morning Bell. Plenty of flavor for 6.8%, but again, it's another somewhat forgettable beer in a very crowded field of coffee stouts and porters. The texture and interesting aroma give it a bit more depth, but the flavor is a bit too roasty for my tastes.

I got this as an extra a while ago, though I forget who sent it to me.

The cap popped with a hiss, and then...boom...explosive gusher, all over the table, and it didn't stop. I poured out two full glasses of foam, and still, Mt. Vesuvius. Finally got a small pool of dark brown liquid in the glass, topped with a huge chocolate brown head. I could tell right from the smell, not just overcarbed, but completely infected. Tangy fruits, sulfur, metallic. Taking a sip, I got metal and cardboard, rotten fruit, chocolate seemed like it was trying to come through, but nope...this was completely gone, and totally undrinkable. Big bottle of foam right down the drain.
