On cask at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pitch black and completely opaque except for faint mahogany edges with a two finger, frothy beige head that slowly fades into a lasting cap/ring. Very good retention with some spotty lacing left behind.
Robust roasted dark malt aroma with a decent coffee presence but it isn't overpowering, letting the other notes come through. Gourmet roast with earthy nuttiness and a subtle lactic presence followed by roasted dark malt, burnt sugar, oatmeal, dark chocolate and toast. Subtle sweetness underneath. Coffee nicely integrated into the aroma of the base beer.
Medium bodied with a creamy nitro feel to it yet still manages to be a bit watery/thin. Decent amount of roasted malt and coffee flavor balanced by lactic cream and sweeter malt notes. Very dry and almost burnt up front but never overly acrid or harsh with hints of toast, deeply roasted espresso, dark chocolate and oatmeal followed by lactic cream and sweeter, silky chooclate notes. Subtle nutty earthiness with caramel and toffee sweetness. Well balanced but not very exciting. Decent coffee presence and pretty easy to drink but not an improvement on the base beer.

A very nice easy drinking beer. Especially if you like the big flavors associated with a porter/stout. But, it is not heavy and finishes fairly dry. Good mouth feel. Pleasing coffee/chocolate notes in flavor and smell. Tried it at Greatlakes Brewpub.

One off cask version with Coffee Emporium Coffee Beans.
Into a snifter the was at least 2 inches of dense tan head.
Nose has plenty of roasted notes to blend with the addition of coffee. Very pleasing nose.
Taste is so smooth and silky. Really big body but very drinkable. Delicious to say the least. More roasted characters and light acrid notes to take away from the overall feel. More on the milk chocolate side than anything.
As this warms there are more coffee notes and a little more acidity but nothing that would stop me from grabbing another.
Still comes off as 5% and nothing bigger. Just plain easy to drink.
Great example and I was glad to try this because the regular Edmund Fitz is just delicious as well

From the Firkin at GLBC during "Firkin Thursday" event.
A) Deep black, poured with a huge light-mocha head.
S) Rich deep coffee which can be smelled immediately, smokey chocolate hints in the nose as well.
T) Coffee on coffee without being over-powering. Alcohol content was unknown, but it would be hard to believe it was anything more than the 5.x% of the standard Edmund Fitz, as no signs of alcohol could be detected.
M) Very velvety with a good bit of carbonation. Very enjoyable.
O) I probably prefer the taste and feel of this one over the standard version, but I could certainly see how the standard Edmund Fitz would be more "sessionable" for most people.
