COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal and 20 pounds of fresh roasted coffee from the Ugly Mug Cafe contribute to a mildly chalky espresso character balanced by a rich, sweet, creamy maltiness. coffee finish dissolves into chocolate with a slight roasty bitterness. Brewed with 100% fair-trade coffee from the Ugly Mug Café and Roastery in Ypsilanti, MI. Pairs well with desserts, especially dark chocolate, raspberries, and cheesecake.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. A little bit of head but minimal head retention. Coffe and roastiness in the aroma. Coffee flavor is smooth and not. Very low carbonation, Full mouthfeel. Overall it is a flavorfull beer. The coffee is not overdone. Could use a little more carbonation to give it just a little more life.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle from Eastman Party Store in Midland MI. Pours a viscous black with a brown head the dissipates to nothing. Nice coffee and roasty aroma. Full bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Flavor of mild roast coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malts with a good amount of residual sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Finish has a small amount of astringency, but otherwise pretty solid for a Breakfast Stout. Surprised by the low ratings.

douglas88 (6333) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 12, 2010
Bottle thanks to Timbo- the Michigan hook up! Pours a dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malts, loads of rich coffee. The flavor is a battle between bitter roast and mellow milky coffee. Mellow and somewhat thin. Pretty good, very quaffable.

I usually don’t like this style, but this is really smooth woith the coffee only in the background. again well balanced if a little sweet, deep dar coffee color and some lacing

well the bottle looks kinda cool. lets see.. no head, thin, watery. a little roasty, espresso thing going on, but where’s the flavor? boring, watery mess. drinkable, and that’s about it.

infestaxion (22) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2010
A - Pours dark brown with a big, fizzy mocha head that fades quickly. Has some floaties. Certainly not what I expected. Kind of looks like a Coke. S - Not a very big smell at all. Some coffee and chocolate. A little buttery. T - Wow. Underwhelming. A little bittersweet coffee and chocolate. Then the butteryness kicks in. None of this is very strong however. M - Thin and carbonated. Not what I want out of a stout. D - I’m going to have a hard time getting through this one. I’m glad it’s my only one. Edit: This ended up going down the drain.

11th October 2008. GABF. Smooth soft palate. A little creamy coffee in with the dark malt. Nicely balanced. Minerally dry finish.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Solid black color with brown tints at edges. Fast falling head, wet lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor similar to that of Founders Breakfast Stout, but a little wetter. Roasted malt, light coffee present. Little aftertaste. Not quite a high quality brew as it’s probably missed its intended mark and has plenty room for improvement, but certainly still drinkable and tasty if you’re craving a coffee stout.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a dark shinny coffee black, a thinner full viscosity, with a thick creamy foamy tan froth. Aroma is fairly nice of coffee beans, some nice sugar and cream aroma as well, pleasant roast. Flavor is strong of coffee with a bit of cream and sugar, full flavored, roasty but fairly soft overall, a nice clean roast flavor in the finish that I wish was more present upfront. Cookie dough and very bitter coffee aftertaste. Medium thinner bodied, creamy oily mouth-feel, harsh sizzling carbonation. Pretty nice. Has a bit of a berry and banana thing going on too, as well as just a subtle hint of infection... oh Arbor...
