Niall73 (2177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle at home while in Jacksonville. Pours dark brown/black with a red edge and a tan head. Nice aroma with milk choc, light grass, light vanilla and sweet milky coffee. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. There’s woody toasty ash, milk and bitter dark choc, slightly stale coffee, hint of mustiness, vanilla, light hazelnut... Creamy, smooth, lovely balance and very tasty.

355ml bottle shared with Marcus in January 2015 from Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a shaker pint. Oil black with a big soapy tan head. Huge dark-roasted Indonesian coffee aromas with undertones of toasted oats, smoke and slight earthiness. Taste is more of the same with the roasted coffee again dominating. Slight vanilla and dark fruit tastes emerge as it comes to room temperature. Creamy mouthfeel and full-bodied with a dry bitter smoky finish.

Poured into a shaker showing oily black with dark copper translucent rims and half a finger of coffee colored foam. The coffee does show but it’s a sideshow compared to the very dominant grassy aromas emanating from this beer. The palate is full bodied, with extremely even carbonation, immediately showing the dark coffee flavors without any of the tartness, and a very elegant dark chocolate bitterness on the end. The coffee linger on the finish is very long. Actually very similar to drinking a nice black coffee. Delicious!

RedSox2004 (1410) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Completely opaque black, big foamy billowy tan head with good retention and very nice lace. Big coffee aromas dominate, with notes of roasted grain and dark fruit. pleasant sense of smoke as well. Lots of dark roasted coffee flavor, some dark fruit sweetness, earth and wood, and a gentle alcohol warmth. Mild hopping provides a balancing bitterness. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a lingering smokiness.

Pours a dark black with a khaki colored head. Nose is dark chocolate and dark roast coffee with a roasted malt scent. Medium body with a nice bitter coffee bite on the front with a smooth finish. Excellent lacing. One of the best Coffee Stouts I’ve ever tasted.

TheCaptMatey (179) - Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured a dark brown/ black colour with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet coffee and roasted malts. Taste is coffee, carmel, and roasted malts with a light bitterness. Very sweet and natural coffee elements in this medium bodied brew with a chewy/ smooth mouthfeel and a warm bitter finish.

This is a very distinctive coffee stout, one that sets itself apart with its bright coffee flavor (as opposed to a burnt/old coffee that is apparent in many others of the same variety, such as Sierra Nevada's). This is solid all around, something I'd drink again and again. Cheers.

Bottle, via IP trade with dresden-- thanks Steve! Dark brown, medium brown head. Rich coffee aroma and flavour, nice bitter black malts, sweet undertones, maybe a bit of hazelnut? A great coffee stout!
