Not a lot to say about this one, if you like coffee then you will probably like this because that's exactly what it tastes like. As some reviewers have mentioned, it's a bit of a one-trick pony/beer because the coffee taste and smell is about the only thing you will get from it. I can't call it a bad beer by any means but it's limited. Pretty much like drinking a cold cup of strong black coffee with some alcohol and carbonation in it. Obviously I'm spoiled by Breakfast Stout which I've been drinking a lot of lately, and it's not a very fair comparison, but at the price this one is going for I would have liked some more balancing elements. Strong, bitter coffee taste, period.
It's not really for me, still better than a lot of beverages I've had, but if you're a coffee fanatic this might be one for you. I can't mark it down too much because it still seems like they hit what they were aiming at with this one.
