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.

Black body small tan head. Roasted malts and day old coffee filter aroma. Flavors are strong black coffee with a nice bitter sweet ending. Medium body is slightly creamy. Excellent bitter finish. if you don't like coffee this is definitely not your brew. Good stout. Thanks BBB63.

Beerslayer said it all. Tons of coffee in the aroma, but some vegetable aroma as well. Black beer, big brown head. Flavor mostly of coffee with some chocolate mixed in. The most coffee flavor I have had in a beer.

This is another great Stout from this brew. Coffee, dark chocolate, and more coffee flavor. Finishes creamy and smooth.

This beer was very interesting. It is extremely dark, with a foamy light brown head. It smells like roasted and almost burnt coffee beans. The coffee flavor is almost overpowering, but rather enjoyable. It is moderately bitter like a cup of strong coffee made with burnt beans. Surprisingly, the finish is pretty clean. Overall, it was very different from anything that I usually drink, but I kind of liked it.

Poured pitch black and opaque. Smells strong of coffee and dark chocolate. Tasted much like a cold, strong, bitter coffee. The bitter notes came from the taste of bitter dark chocolate and the coffee taste is obvious. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than perfect but still nice and heavy. The drinkability is nice and easy, multiple brews can be had. And for an extra treat, enjoy with frozen snack size Snickers.

Poured dark brown with a small dark head. Distinct coffee aroma, but it's not as strong as I had expected it to be. Tastes like a cup of black coffee. Not sure I could drink more than one because of the sweetness. Still a tasty, well-crafted beer.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Another excellent stout from a company who makes a great range of them and one of my favorite coffee beers. +++Sampled from a 12oz brown bottle this beer pours thick, black and oily with a thick foamy dark brown head that lingers and left good lacing. The aroma was strong fresh ground coffee. Strong espresso flavor. There is no sweetness. Palate is gritty like espresso. Taste is very strong of coffee.Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Tasty!

Black as black can be. Kind of like a kalamazoo stout with a little less body and a not so impressive coffee profile. Had better coffee stout.

Coffee and chocolate from beginning to end, color of coffee, aroma of both, taste of both, finish of coffee or bitter chocolate. Enough said

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Dark black appearance with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Flavor is creamy with a chocolate, coffee, and cappuccino flavor. The finish is mostly sweet with a hint of bitterness. My god what an awesome stout. This is very different from other stouts Ive sampled, and I am thankful for that!
