Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cycle Brewing snifter glass.

A: Up front, there’s no “pfft” when the bottle is opened – a worrisome sign. Pours very dark brown and essentially opaque. A mild amount of visible carbonation, and a thin tan head forms but recedes quickly.

S: Big coffee up front, with some roasted malt bitterness and cacao. Hints of vanilla and pipe tobacco on the back end.

T: Coffee again – a moderately bitter black coffee. Mocha and baker’s chocolate, then dark roasted malts. Some bits of a musty leathery sweetness. A lingering bitter mocha flavor in the hang.

M: A smooth, heavy mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation sensation; although not as flat as I was afraid it might be. The alcohol presence is well-hidden.

O: Good coffee flavors in a beer with a nice, thick mouthfeel. Where could you go wrong? It isn’t complex, but in as much as it’s one-note, it plays that note with passion.

Got this one from 7clutch a while back. Cheers man!

From a bomber into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black, yielding a two finger, medium looking, creamy tan head with good retention. Black body with next to no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a decent wisp. A slight wisp remains until the end leaving some falling dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: A big nose of coffee, sweet cream, vanilla, light coconut and some roasted malt aromas. Lovely and very enticing for sure. Just great.

TASTE: Lots of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla and cream up front with coffee and some roasted bitterness at the swallow. Bold and lingering finish with lots of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, coconut, nice bitter coffee and some roasted malts proving a solid base. Excellent stuff.

PALATE: Medium-fuller body with medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth with a bit of a bite at the swallow and finishes somewhat mouth-coating. Solid feel here, CBC style.

OVERALL: Some of the more recent reviewers definitely drank something different than I did. No off flavors here and definitely nothing wrong with the fermentation (otherwise, we'd all notice it). There might be an off bottle here and there, but this one was absolutely delicious. I'm used to CCB stout brews being more sludgy and menacingly black perhaps, but that's a minor point, as there are lots of good things going on here and all the adjuncts are in the right place. Something I'd love to drink in mass quantities on a regular basis. Well, I can basically say the same thing about pretty much all CCB stout beer. Thanks again 7clutch. Highly, highly recommended.

A great brew By CCB. The coffee and vanilla compliment each other and are very balanced. Velvet mouthfeel that lingers well after each drink. Would have again!

Shared bottle.
Smells great and tastes nearly as good.
Too sweet for some I suppose and with a clear coconut note this won't appeal to everyone, but I loved it. Would be super as an after dinner beer.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Not inky like other CCB stouts. Medium khaki head.

Smell - Lots of vanilla. Dark chocolate. A little booze. I don't get coffee?

Taste - Yowza, now I get coffee. Tons of coffee. Vanilla. Dark chocolate and molasses. Much less sweet than other CCB stouts, but just as intense.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Just not insanely heavy. Tingly booze.

Overall - Nice. Nice adjuncts in a very good stout.
