Aroma-- pure rich Aribica coffee, carries right over to the flavor. Tastes of Expresso well balanced with mild hops, maybe noble hops. Alcohol is there, but not upstaging anything. Light mouth feel, but more malt isnít necessary. Maybe Lactose would add and interesting element (like coffee with cream). Overall-- well above average-- worth choosing this over anything coming out of Dublin, which I rate the gold standard (14 kt-- this stuff is 21kt!)

Barcade: Brooklyn. Thick and hoppy. One of the best balances for a coffee beer I have ever had.

Tap @ Captain Lawrence... Poured near black with a light tan head. Nice roasted malt flavors. Coffee too, but didnít taste like the best coffee out there. Earthy hop tones, a little thin on the body with smooth mouthfeel. Finished with a nice roasted barley and coffee bitterness.

On tap. Pours with a black body with a large tan head. Aromas are of espresso, brown sugar, roast and nutty some chocolate. Mostly all malt aromas, medium coffee, clean otherwise. Flavors are of vanilla, esters, floral, dark chocolate. Espresso character isnít extremely strong, but it is a rich coffee flavor. Medium bubbles, thinner bodied, dry.

Tap at Captain Lawrence event - sweet candy with dark malts, light chocolate and espresso roast. Very dry with some peaty, earthy notes. Piney hops and a touch of sourness.

From a growler at the brewery. Pours a very dark, yet somehow opaque black. About an inch of creamy brown head. Nice dark woody aroma with plenty of espresso in there. Mouthfeel is excellent. Neither heavy nor light. Very porter-like, which is perfect for a non-imperial (i.e. regular stout). Taste is full of coffee, wood, burnt roast. Itís very powerful at the beginning but you can definitely taste the individual flavors after a few sipps. Over all a real solid stout. I also really like the fact that itís only 6% and not 8-9%+ so I can enjoy a few. I wish I drank mine quicker, as itís been sitting in the growler for a few weeks, but still darn good.

Pours jet black with an inch of light brown head which rapidly disappears and doesnít leave a lot of lacing. Pungent espresso on the nose and on the tongue. A bit overpowering really and the finish leaves behind this strange slimy residue.

Growler thanks to alfrantzell. Dark brown in color with a one finger tan head that fades to bubbles and swirls. The aroma has nice coffee to it along with charcoal and dark chocolate. On the flavor though some of the not-so-good aspects of the coffee come through. Slight sourness and excessive charcoal dominate. The palate is a bit astringent with thinner body and average carbonation. This is paradoxically both good and bad at the same time, if that makes any sense at all.
