2012 Vintage.

Beer is pitch black with a moderately-sized tan head. Head fades fairly quickly.

Nose is full of coffee. Hard to get past it, but there is also some chocolate, gives a bit of a mocha scent.

Taste is more varied. Coffee is still the main event. But there is chocolate and roasted malt. Impossible to say that the coffee is really mixed in with the other flavours, as it is quite dominant, but it is more integrated than the smell indicated. Mildly bitter.

Full bodied, but not particularly heavy. Moderate carbonation. Slick.

Overall, very good. The coffee is too heavy for my personal tastes - I prefer beers that seem to integrate the coffee more, such as Peche Mortel and Speedway. However, as I am not a coffee drinker, it is a testament to the quality of this beer that I still find it quite good.

I was excited to try this beer after seeing the high ratings on Beer Advocate. I'm a coffee lover and a beer lover and when my two favorite drinks are put together it usually is a "can't miss" scenario. However, I was truly let down by this beer. I'm not going to go into the specifics (a,s,t,m,o) but to say that I feel it's under carbonated, poor lacing, bitter smell and taste. The coffee used is not smooth and seems like an average quality blend which is unacceptable for a beer that costs $3.50 for a 12 ounce bottle. Terrapin should learn a lesson from GI who puts an excellent quality coffee in their BCBCS and it shows! To each his own but I just don't see why this beer is rated so high.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a very dark brown/black color with a half finger head and a little lacing.

S: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Very inviting smell.

T: Mainly coffee to start with along with some roasted malts and dark chocolate. There are hops there, but mostly hidden. Great balance. The alcohol is completely hidden.

M: Medium to full bodied with some carbonation. Very easy to drink.

O: I enjoyed this just as much as Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout...that says a lot.
