Damico (2585) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pours pretty thick dark, coffee unclear in color with a creamy sandy colored head. The aroma brings subtle creamy coffee and mocha. The flavor brings the roasted malts, with pleasant lightly bittered coffee settling on the tongue.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours an opaque black with a nicely-lacing froth of beige head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and lightly roasted coffee with some molasses and dark chocolate. Smooth milky body has a nice sweetness and light roasty coffee balance toward a semi-sweet slightly dark chocolatey bitter finish.

dpjuart (1061) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Draft sample at brewpub. Pours brown/black with khaki head. Roast and chocolate nose, heavy on the roast. Smooth with moderate watery mouth feel. Decent coffee flavor with caramel and chocolate notes. Mild bitter at the end, no after taste. Clean with mild coffee after. Yummy.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Sampled at the brewpub. Super coffee aroma, thick with cream and chocolate. One of the best coffee aromas I have ever experienced - smells more like an actual cup of coffee as compared to a coffee beer. Light milky sweet character. Dark black clear with foamy tan lacing head. Medium light body with creamy carbonation. Staarts sweet with tons of lactose sweetness and tons of coffee. Light molasses and dry bitter finish. Creamy sweet coffee after. Nice stout.

Naka (706) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Sampled at brewery. Pours black with a dark tan frothy head. Lots of lacing and it lasted a long time. Aroma is as close to a cup of coffee as I have found in a beer. Not a whole lot of chocolate or other roasted malts... just coffee. Flavor brings out more of the roasty chocolate notes. Body isn’t as creamy as I would like. Good coffee malty flavors with a touch of bitter in the finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Draft @ Bullfrog. Pours a dark chocolate-brown color; creamy, thick medium tan head with excellent retention and creamy, fine-bubbled lacing; great pour. Lots of coffee grounds, creaminess, and chocolate malts in the aroma; roasted, fresh coffee nose. Medium mouthfeel: sweet, creamy coffee (surprise!) and chocolatey goodness; relaxed carbonation; very much a solid approximately of coffee with cream, if lacking a bit of complexity overall. Medium finish: standard breadiness, dough, and soft coffee notes.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
10 oz, on nitro, at brewery. Dark brown pour with a creamy mass of chocolate brown head. The nose is roasty with accents of coffee and lactose, and maybe a touch of smokiness. Very nice flavor, lots of coffee without any bitterness at all. Lingering roasty finish with a light lactose twang. Zero astringency. Usual thinnish, almost creamy, nitro mouthfeel. More of a light-roast coffee beer versus and espresso flavored beer. Not quite up there with the nitro Coffee Stouts from Selins Grove or Ottos, but very pleasant.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2008
In short: A tasty milky and well hopped coffee stout. Very good beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Black body with a medium long-lasting tan head
In long: Some coffee flavour but not as much as I expected from a Coffee Stout. The coffee flavour was more like a cup of black coffee than roasted coffee beans. Medium sweetness. The beer was also rather lactic making the entire feel like I just ordered a carbonated black coffee with 2 sugars and 12 milks. All that followed by a generous amount of hops providing quite a contrast in the finish. This is a Tasty beer. One serving of this very good beer quickly made me forget their failed Chocolate Bock attempt, and given a large supply of it could also make me forget my failed recording-artist attempt.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Dark brown with red light at the bottom and a small white head. Tastes of roast, light milk, some very light coffee and some mild sweet chocolate up front, developing over time the flavors become for deep and rich, but still seem subdued. The middle is dry and a bit pasty, and the coffee begins to open up in the finish, with a flavor of coffee grounds, chestnuts, and light coffee creamer. A decent beer but falls short in a lot of respects, the body especially is a bit too rough and coarse while also being a bit thin.
