12 oz bottle into English pint. My bottle reads 6.2% ABV. Pours a dark, dark brown that lets a little bit of light through when held up to the light. Has a fast disappearing tan head that leaves some sticky lace. Smells of freshly roasted black coffee (no surprise). Taste is bittersweet and a little sour. Carbonation is medium, body is medium-full. Nice beer here, have no fear for the coffee and beer are here.

12 oz. bottle- Immediate coffee aroma as soon as I poured, chocolate malt is also present, appearance is black with red highlights at the base of the glass, it has a creamy tan head and average lacework. The taste is bitter up front followed by coffee, black coffee, not sissy espresso. A creaminess sets in then finishes bitter again. I wish it was less bitter, but overall a decent beer.

Draft. Nice coffee aroma. Coffee and sweet chocolate up front, roasted malts, just a hint of smoke. No real bitterness, slightly chalky. Thinner mouthfeel than expected, chocolate lingers on finish. Enjoyable coffee beer.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 EDIT: wow, my bottle experience was severely lacking! not bad overall, but nothing like my tap experience below in which i absolutely loved this brew. in a bottle this was VERY average. lowering my rating from a 4.0 to 3.6
one of the best coffee stouts i’ve ever had. silky, creamy, smooth. little bit of chocolate. doesnt taste like a very high abv, but very enjoyable.

Actual title is ’Cowboy Coffee Porter’, on tap at the Big Sky Taproom, tried a sample, bought a growler. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a thin tan head. Coffee flavor is certainly there, as is some chocolate. This one is fairly rich, and smoothly drinkable. Thumbs up.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at hopcat.
A: pours a dark brown almost black with a rather small tan head. No real retention or lace noted.
S: Aromas of light roasted malt, cheap truck stop coffee, and chocolate malt.
T: Taste even less appealing than the aroma. Light roasted malt with very subtle chocolate. Hints of coffee, but not the fresh kind. To describe it I would say watered down cheap coffee with a hint of crushed malt. Nothing really melds, hell there is very little flavor here to be honest.
M: Light, watery.
D: Forgettable. I have already forgot I consumed this one.
