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.

Jamesthebrit (415) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2013
S: Coffee notes, brings an acidity with it. Smells smooth.... A: Nice tan head. black body. T: Hits with a coffee note that is something like a medium roast. A bit of acidity, bit of hops in there as well. P: CO2 is a little aggressive but overall it’s pretty smooth. Good flavor development. Acidity cuts though a bit much. Overall a solid beer. Easy to drink yet full of flavor. Better on tap than from a bottle (which is what this review is from... a bottle).

Prufrockstar (1908) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Seems like a good way to ease out of a Friday afternoon working from home. Near black pour with small cream-colored head that isn’t huge but sticks around for a long, long time Aroma initially is dominated by coffee, but after it warms in the glass for a few minutes you realize that there’s also a huge rich chocolate component as well. Taste is moderately sweet, with nice finish that dances between roast coffee bitterness and decadent fudgy chocolate. Medium+ body, average carbonation, surprisingly velvety texture. Overall: This is one impressive coffee stout. Loving this.

Bottle at home. Black - small light brown head. Coffee aroma and taste. Some sweet notes. Chocolate. Roasted and some burned malts. Light bitterness. Lots of chocolate - dark bitter chocolate. Nice body. High drinkability - if you like coffee.

Svart och lite trög. Tydlig doft av kallt kaffe. Sträv och lite kärv smak. Mycket kaffe och beska ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BigBeer45 (1414) - Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Drank from a shaker, from a bottle, the pour gave a large, thick chocolate shake like head of bubbles and the beer was black in the glass, the aromas were roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, a bit of caramel, malt, chocolate and brown sugar sweetness, it had flavors of big roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, a bit of roasted malt bitterness, some brown sugar and a touch of molasses, the roasted malt bitterness and coffee gave a good bitterness to balance the malt and chocolate sweetness, the bitterness and coffee hung around on the tongue, the mouth feel was medium to the light side of full and it was pretty creamy on the lips, the carbonation was average, this stout was a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, this bottle has sat around for more than six months, a fresher bottle would have more coffee and coffee bitterness, this beer was really nice, I recommend this drink.
