3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beer club beer. Aroma was quite wonderful--chocolate and a lot of coffee. The flavor is OK. A lot of coffee flavor, almost crunchy like coffee grounds. Body gets a little syrupy and unbalanced, but a decent effort on this.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells strongly of coffee and hints of chocolate. Taste is bold coffee bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Bent River Uncommon Stout finishes with a coffee bitter bite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep black body with a frothy tan head that had great retention and decent lace. A nice blend of malts on the nose. Roasted and cocoa malts seemed to be the main players but there was a nice smokey quality and decent coffee notes. Flavor had a nice sharp bitterness to it coffee and roasted malts complemented each other flavors off semi-sweet chocolate and mild smoke rounded out the flavor. Wickedly dry in the finish. Nice mouth feel.

The smell of this beer is amazing! If you donít like coffee/coffee stouts then stay away, however, if coffee is alright with you I highly recommend giving it a try.

Pours pitch black with a thick white head and excellent lacing. Aroma is coffee and sweet malt. Flavor is pretty much coffee with 2 sugars. I canít complain, being a huge coffee fan. Nice.

cola brown color, head is tan, thin. aroma is definitely loaded with coffee, but also a hint of cocoa in there as well. coffee not nearly as dominant in the initial flavor, but really comes through in the finish. iím rating this from a 12oz bottle, but it really is a better beer on tap.

12 oz bottle. From Iowa. Thanks to John M.
Black colour with a small tan head.
The aroma is pure coffee... and some mild bitterness.
Malt and coffee in the flavour. I donít like coffee... so... I kind of hate this...

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Appearance: Dark brown, tan head, decent retention. Aroma: cold-pressed coffee with a backing of chocolate. Taste: Stale diner coffee and bakerís chocolate. Cola. As it warms, an aroma of stinky feet is awakened. Palate: medium body, prickly carbonation, oily and surprisingly thin texture for an oatmeal stout. Overall: The nose on this was pretty great.
