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.

A super-thick pour with a thin tan head. Ever sniff fresh coffee grounds? Yeah, thatís what it smells like. Bitter grounds and hazelnut/toffee/caramel round out the taste with a very strong aftertaste. Tastes woody and stouty and very thick. Should i add some cream and sugar perhaps? pretty good, But I dont think i could drink very many.

Aroma has bitter chocolate with lots of over-roasted coffee, some creamyness. Dark black color with a big reddish brown head. Flavor is chocolately and bitter, nice thick mouthfeel.

Really roasty all-around. From the aroma (roasted whatever-it-is), to the back-mouth feel on the finish. A slight touch of sweetness worked in there as well in the finish. If stout is your thing, and coffee is your thing, definitely go after this one.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2005 Pours a very thick shiny black liquid with a tan head. It smells like fresh coffee grounds just after a pot has been brewed. Roasted but it also has a cool fresh presense in the aroma. The taste can not be described as anything but a strong rich coffee flavor. There really isnít much complexity to it, as additional malts stay hidden as does most of the bitterness I expected, but it is a very robust flavor that I enjoy. I did catch hints of some vanilla that played quite nicely with the roasted malt. It has a fairly full and very lasting bitter malt finish. April 05 tasting of í04 botttle Very creamy feel. Still an increadible amount of coffee and now a plesant chocolate finish. Increadibly roasted, fabulously coffied, wonderfully strong. This beer improves with age. Perviously a 7,3,8,3,15. Now 7,3,8,3,17.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
The pour is pitch black. The head is dark yellow, handsome, thick, creamy and mostly diminishing. Intense coffee, vanilla, mocha and beans in the aroma. In your face coffee notes, with nuts, burnt malts and more dry and bitter coffee.

i love beer....i love coffee...i love coffee beer; wonderful coffee aroma; the taste is more like coffee BEANS, not the actual coffee; although i think this is a great beer and a great stout overall, i still prefer FOUNDERS BREAKFAST STOUT (which tastes more like coffee than it does coffee beans per se....then again, that is my favorite beer)

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Pours thick and deep dark brown. Nice and strong, roasty coffee smell. Strong coffee, esspresso taste. This is a good beer, and the strongest coffee flavor of any beer Iíve ever had. I could drink this for breakfast everyday.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2004
Dark brown, average head that vanished rather quickly. Aroma of dark, organic, deep, fine grained coffee. Great mouthfeel, coffee is everywhere here. Dark malts, cocoa, and hops made this even more interesting! Nice.

Coffee Coffee Coffee. Not the best stout in the world but by far not the worst. If you do not like coffee do not try this beer. The flavor is very evident. A very black brew that can be pleasent on a nice cold day.

Couldnít pick up much aroma, but what a fantastic brew! Great mouthfeel and balance. Overtones of coffee & chocolate linger pleasantly after taking a sip.
