Bottle from a beer box! Poured black with a little bit of a head of foam. Aroma is light roast coffee with a hint of chocolate. Taste is coffee and roasted malts. Palate is medium body, creamy texture soft carbonation. Easy drinking coffee stout!

This beer is awesome. Dark brown with minimal tan head. Really great coffee aroma and flavors. This beer smells amazing. Medium body. Roasted/toasted malt on the finish.

Onslow (1204) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Nice looking inky black brew with tan head. Aroma is a coffee blast with a few hints of malt. Taste is bitter coffee up front, in the middle and still more bitter coffee at the end, with a little metallic flourish to wrap things up. Average palate verging to the thin side. Interesting but unbalanced - this is more like a foamy cold expresso than a coffee stout.. Maybe I am just not attuned to the style.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Nice coffee and roasted malt aromas and flavor, albeit way too one-sided. Watery texture severely damages the total experience and this ultimately becomes a rather bland affair.

Ferris (4737) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft - Lots of roast and coffee bean. Deep mahogany with almost no head. Roast with some coffee. Very light on the palate and surprisingly easy drinking.

mothergoose311 (26) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Dark brown with thin off-white head. Flavor is strong in coffee, but not much else. I expected a far better brew for a 96 rating. Average.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head. Nose is of chocolate. Very creamy on the palate. The taste is of coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, dark roasted malt. Fairly bitter on the finish. A good stout that pairs well with popcorn or nuts.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap, poured into an imperial pint style sampler. A whole lot of coffee comes through on the nose of this one. It’s dark and black-brown. It comes through a bit clear on the edges when held to the light and it has an off-white head. Only a thin ring is retained and it doesn’t leave any lace on the glass. It’s a nice blend of medium light sweet and bitter. The thin texture has a fizzy, soda-like carbonation and a medium malty body. It finishes grainy, with a cola coffee ground finish and a light, fading coffee aftertaste.
