Bottle: Pours fairly black with almost no head. Slight aroma of chocolate and coffee (both barely noticable). Smooth drinking (not necessarily a compliment). Not bad.

On tap at Hop Devil. Black with thin and minute head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor of bitter and acidic black coffee and chocolate. I didn’t pick up the oats or lactose. Thin and flat.

I didn’t think this one was going to be as bad as the reviews that I’ve read indicated. I was wrong. It’s worse. Looked the part with a pitch black pour and huge head. Really looked good. Smelled sort of funny with a sharp acrid wang to it. Man, after two sips, I had to throw this out. I try to be constructive on my reviews but this was just awful. Watery mouthfeel with an awful sour/old coffee taste to it. I won’t be having this one again.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2008
pretty basic for a coffee stout..aroma of fresh-brewed coffee and chocolate..flavor is a muted, watered down version of what i expected from the aroma...a tad thin and oddly sour...not bad, but a step below its competition

smells good. looks good. tastes like crap. aroma is that of a nice cup of strong coffee from your local bistro....flavor is that of truck stop sludge that has been left on the burner to ferment. my wife loves it off tap, but bottle is definately not my thing.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Thanks for sharing SoLan. The initial aroma is sweet coffee and a decent roastiness. The flavor is simply unbearable for me, there is an off putting acidity that reminds me of coffee that has been allowed to sit for far too long. Simply not my thing.

Courtesy Styles. Dark brown/black with a quickly disappearing, small tan head. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee, bittersweet roasted malt, and a bit of an acidic twang. Acidity takes over the flavor and not in a good way. The malt and the coffee take a back seat. Medium body, carbonation is just a bit less than balanced. The aidity is overpowering.
