COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

Like I assumed, the beer had a wonderful coffee aroma. Deep black pour with a thick fluffy brown head. When I asked my friend how the "mouthfeel" was he said, "My mouthfeel happy." I couldn’t agree more. Nice and thick, full flavor. Unlike most coffee stouts, which can taste like day old coffee.

On cask. Dark color, lasting creamy tan head. Dark roasted bitter coffee in aroma and taste. Slight grassy hops present to accentuate the bitterness. Light body with a lasting taste which improves upon each sip.

Nice black color,small but decent long lived tan head that had a good hang time then faded to a nice lace.Nice mlaty aroma with a good coffee side.The taste was better then i was expecting with a good sweet malt side some very nice coffee and a bit of some hops at the end but not to much.over all pretty smooth and malty with the coffee being nicely done.Well worth trying again and again.

Great pour as you get a whopping big tan head. First smell doesn’t really give you the idea of the taste that awaits. Fist sip and I am reminded that I like my coffee with a shit load of sugar. Oh well as this one definatley lives up to the java billing.

Bottle. Thanks to jtw for this one! Huge dark brown head on top and a pitch black body. Aroma is huge coffee with rich, oily notes. Like sweet espresso. Obvious roasted malt but a nice sweetness blended in, maybe brown sugar. Taste is also BIG coffee, roasted malt, raw sugar and light bittersweet chocolate. Body is creamy but has mild carbonation with oily notes and bitterness. Finish is more coffee and roasted malt with light burnt wood and dark chocolate. Nice beer!

Expectedly gorgeous black pour. Aroma sadly redolent of church-basement decaf Folgers. A daring and successful blend of stout and coffee, certainly, with the only shortcoming being that the coffee did not taste like a clean, solid, full-body roast that might accompany a clean stout. Alas, I was trained on coffee before I freelanced into beer. However, VERY well done, Kalamazoo, and the flavors blended better than I could have hoped for. The hops were also well balanced. I may not try it again, but it was a fun experience.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 From the bottle this beauty pours black with a small tan head. Aroma resembles paper and black coffee. Taste is straight up coffee. Not that yuppie mocha chino lattee frappaducci starbucks crap either. Black coffee, no sugar, no cream. Just like the stuff that my old man would brew up every morning before work when I lived at home. This beer leaves a sticky mouthfeel as it leads to a sultry bitter aftertaste. This beer rocks. Will this beer have tons of caffine like coffee? Hopefully I won’t be up all night tonight. If I am, I may lower this score!

I love the frothy coffee colored head. Strong coffee flavor, but lacking complexity.

Really nice coffee stout. Aromas of coffee and stout mesh really well and its hard to tell where one leaves off and where the other begins. One of the best of this style I’ve ever had.
