Pours brown out of the bottle, but forms a mass of black in the glass. Finger and a half of khaki head top it, with okay retention. No lacing left behind. Aroma is heavy coffee. Cold brew coffee, with dark chocolate, and a little charring of the bean showing through. Flavor profile is dominate by cold brew coffee, which continues to grow louder and louder as the beer warms on the palate each sip. Additional notes of dark chocolate, and charred coffee work with roasted and toasted malts to form a dark beer that's been steeped in coffee overnight in the fridge. Mouth feel has some presence, with a creamy, velvety texture with a touch of water. Mouth feel is medium in thickness. Overall, loads and loads of coffee here. Unfortunately, the charred, over-extracted beans give off a bitter flavor note. Still, the presence of cold brew coffee notes in a smooth-drinking, nearly 8% stout is a nice combo.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 8/29/16, had 10/4/16.

Pours very dark, near black and opaque. An attractive darker tan, one inch foamy head, with a good amount of foamy lacing. The smell starts with lightly roasted malts, then lots of good coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some smoke, a little molasses. The taste offers more medium roasted malts, still lots of coffee, chocolate, less vanilla than the nose. caramel, some molasses. Still pick up a little smoke. An earthy hop bitterness runs underneath, a bit of a sweet note on the finish.

Really good coffee in this, Full, layered flavor and aroma, if not overly complex, a fun one that's very enjoyable to drink. Well worth grabbing few bottles when you stop at the brewery, or your favorite bottle shop.

Poured from a 12oz with a date of 11-28-16 into a snifter

It is mainly black with some brownish hues. Decent amount of khaki colored, thicker than medium froth on top. It didn't have a real long retention, but left a fine ring and whispy film on top.

It smells like coffee, coffee, and a little bit of coffee. Seriously. This is one of the biggest coffee bombs I have cracked open. Very ashy, black grounds. There is a hint of milk chocolate in there, but you really have to try to find it.

It tastes very bitter, and very ashy. Just TONS of straight black coffee grounds. Its like sucking on a filter. There really isn't anything else until you let it warm up close to room temp. Even then, it is still very coffee dominated. Sweet condensed milk starts to come through along with a light milk chocolate and oats.

It is just a hair thin bodied even for the ABV and style, but easy to drink and appropriately carbonated.

Even at it's best, this one is just too unbalanced for me objectively, but I like coffee and coffee beers so it is still very enjoyable overall. Not for the faint of heart though. Move over FBS.

This isnt a beer. This is a delicious extreme roasted cup of coffee. With hints of stout. Actually it tastes more like an imperial brown ale than a milk stout. Maybe its all the roasty bitterness that blends well with the sweetness of the stout. Very well balanced . Each ingredient compliments another.

That being said... Pours typical stout black. Off white head. Strong lacing. Smells of strong roasted coffee, light chocolate, slight sweetness buried in there. Taste is super bitter coffee that is mixed well with sweet milk and sugar followed by a dry mouthfeel. Medium body and carbonation.

Definitely a great brew for any coffee lover.

Picked up a single bottle from Horrock's on recommendation from one of the beer and wine guys. Poured into a porter/stout glass. It looked and smelled amazing. A wonderful smell of creamy, chocolaty coffee. I loved the silky, easy drinking of this one. A bit too easy drinking for the ABV! All the flavors blend together well with coffee coming through the strongest. It was good to the last drop. ;) I'd buy this again.

A - pours a chestnut brown with khaki head that leaves lace around the glass after each sip.

S - Malts, chocolate, coffee, hops.

T - Rich chocolatey, creamy opening with layers of coffee and balanced nicely with hops.

O - Smooth creamy mouth feel makes this an easy to drink - this was a nice surprise. Drinkability is dangerously easy for the ABV on this one.

Pours black with brown edges; topped with a tall brown-beige head leaving crowns of lace behind.

The coffee-chocolate-alcohol in the nose here is just fabulous; it's got this great blend and nothing really overpowers anything. Some molasses-licorice also fades out the finish.

The flavor profile is strong - overpowering even, with syrup-like consistency bringing flavors of plum, browned fig, molasses, milk, oats...sustaining flavors of raisin, dirt, coffee, and finishes with a touch of dark german chocolate.

The feel is thick and viscous, pumped with a line of fizzy carbonation. The finish is dry to semi-dry.

Overall, Mr. Hyde is a pretty decent coffee beer - but it doesn't stop at just coffee. I'd have it again if I came across it, even though it's not quite as impressive as the plethora of stouts I've had that edge the top ranks.
