2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This stout poured a deep, dark black colour with a fast-living, rocky, tan coloured head. to the nose there are scents of burnt coffee, earth and a little dough. First sip was smooth and a little watery. Flaours of nuts, cocoa and roasted coffee grounds most prodominant. Finish is burnt with coffee flavour lingering...

On tap at the Westside location. Pours black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong coffee note with roasted malts and just a hint of espresso. Flavor has intense espresso throughout with a hint of roasted malts and dryness.

Not a fan. Intense coffee flavor throughout the entire experience. Not recommended for fans of more typical stouts "with hints of coffee" - this is closer to coffee with alcohol than beer with coffee flavor. Steer clear.

Damn this is good!! Black pour. Tons of espresso hit your nose followed by roast and molasses. Flavor is again up front coffee slap in the face with molasses, chocolate and roasted malt. NICE.

Appearance: solid black, fine tan head, lots of lace
Aroma: big coffee and black chocolate aroma
Body: creamy body
Flavor: rich roasted and dark chocolate flavor, lots of coffee character is well balanced with the malts, hint of dark caramel sweetness brings out the dark chocolate, light bitterness keeps the balance
Overall: the coffee adds a nice additional richness but stays well in balance with the base stout, also drier than the standard dark star

On cask listed as Coffee Stout. Crawford Moran called it the Cowboy Stout. I decided against adding it as a new beer since this is also a coffee stout by the same brewer. This was an amazing beer. Creamy body, great roast and chocolate, excellent balance of coffee. Definitely worth stopping by the brewpub for.

Tap @ 5SW. The blackest beer Iíve ever seen! Blacker than black, black times infinity. Chunky, muddy water colored head. Aroma of rich french roasted black coffee beans. Flavor is of sweet espresso and a deep coffee bitterness. Hints of a sweet potato skin bitterness. Green coffee beans, lots of earthiness. Medium bodied. thin texture. So rich in flavor. Wow, I think Iím gonna be up for a while. Crawford, you are the man!
