22oz bottle-pours a light brown head and dark brown color. Aroma is coffee/acidic, molasses-dark malt. Taste is coffee/acidic, molasses-sweet dark malt. Body is more Porter than Stout. Not my style. 635311 2.8 2nd bottle I brought to Paulís-got some spice-pumpkin with the roasy dark malt. Nice, no acidic this bottle. Canít tell why the inconsistency. 647313 3.3

Travlr (11016) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Tarheels86 at the first DC tasting of 2010. Dark maroon color with a cocoa-cola style head that fizzes briefly and disappears. Aroma of chocolate milk and vanilla. Malts dominate the flavor, lots of alcohol, but a bit thin on body. Decent coffee and chocolate combo, but not a great example of the style.

22oz bottle shared thanks to weearefinallyfinishingmybasement2323. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of coffee, spices, roast, and some spices. Tastes of the same but on the softer and subtle side.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
This beer pours with a nice, deep brown pour. A touch of light coffee on the nose with a kiss of light cocoa on the back. The spice is quite subtle and only really appears on the back of the palate as a light astringency through the middle. It starts out a whole lot better than it ends up being.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2009 Yay! I was at Bold City for the release of their second specialty beer. This is a vast improvement over the "B" Coffee Stout. Pours a very deep ruby that is nearly opaque with a good, one-finger tan head that has good retention and leaves some spotty lacing. Big aroma of pumpkin pie, maple syrup, hazelnut coffee. Taste is slight molasses with the flavors above. Has a nice background of spiced pumpkin pie and something like carrot cake. Eventually as this beer warms the body moves to some cardboardy dryness and nutty bitterness. Probably will try this out again when it gets bottled. 3.6

Re-Rate: Bottle. Lacing looks great along the glass. Big, light tan, very rocky head. Aroma is almost sour fruits. Not much pumpkin or spice at all. Taste is mostly cheap coffee. No pumpkins or spice. Watery body. Thin. More like Sierra Nevada porter than a pumpkin stout. Disappointing. 2.9

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle shared by tarheels86 on 1/10/10: Porus a transparent dark copper mahogany with a stringy-lacing beige head. Has a semi-sweet earthy nose with some funky brett notes. Starts with an earthy leathery dark chocolate flavor and some Tootsie Roll character and a touch of coffee before a drier slightly roasty earthy lingering bitterness. A weird brett infused coffee stout. Just not sure what they were going for here.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle at Paulís place for Kanís visit. Pours a thick black with a thin white head. Coffee, spice, chocolate. Medium body, malt, chocolate, roast. Slightly acrid on the finish, roast and char.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brune black body with a coffee hued head. Roast y coffee tones, coffee grind, weak coffee finish, chocolate, char, and a hint of spice but not really.

egajdzis (5305) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2010
Dark brown / black with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, and light smoke. Taste of roast, chocolate, pumpkin spices, and a dry, roasty finish. A little thin.
