Black in color with no light penetration. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim. The aroma is of dark roasted coffee, bourbon, and vanilla. I'm tasting bitter coffee, bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate, and leather. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

2020 version poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter at home. Creamy thick coffee goodness.

Bottle. Tan head. Black color.

A really nice non BA coffee stout. Thick. Lots of coffee but not burnt or overly roasted. Chocolate and caramel. Smooth. Full bodied.

Bought for my coffee-loving wife I am splitting this 750ML bottle with same. If it sucks she can drink it all.

Pour is tomb-at-midnight black with virtually no bubbliness & appears slightly gelatinous as it oozes from the bottle. The nose is light coffee, chocolate, & deep maltiness. As advertised.

Coffee Shop Vibes to me is playing hearts around a table near the University with friends every Wednesday for years. Here it’s a fruity bean backed by an acre of malts. Deeply sweet without any hint of cloying. Slight creaminess & bitterness on the finish. Not pastry stout thick, this is easy to sip. You could convince me this is in the 8% range. Until I fell off my couch.

Glad to have this borderline legendary beer but it isn’t hand-cranking my torch. My coffee connoisseur wife on the other hand loves it. Me? It’s a good solid brew.

Pours thick as motor oil a beautiful just-this-side-of-black with a silky silty fine dark brown gorgeous head.

Nose is straight creamy sweet cold coffee. Creamy with some undertones of fudgy chocolate and sweet vanilla.

Tasty creamy vanilla and coffee and burgeoning more roast than toast and char. Thick enough to chew. Silky smoothe. This is phenomenal. Thanks @Harrison8 for sending it my way in that delicious box of Missouri goodness during NBS BIF #11!
