Had out of the fermenter right before they kegged it, thanks Bob! Pours a thick jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of rich coffee, lactose and chocolate. Taste is coffee, cream and chocolate, very rich but that doesn’t stop me from wanting more. Man, is this an amazing coffee stout.

Tap. Moderate roasty/toasty, bittersweet chocolate and coffee for the malt, light to moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with chocolate milk in the background. Head is small, creamy, tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, moderately acidic and bitter and little sour. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. A nicely textured and well rounded Sweet Stout with some great dark aromas.

@ New World Brewery in Ybor. pour black with a dark brown head. aroma is heavy on coffee. flavor is sweet, as expected. lots of dark espresso roast, milk and brown sugar. a bit of hop bite on the palate, somewhat oily finish. aside from the sweetness, this is an amazing stout, and a must for any coffee drinkers.

Nitro Brass Tap Gainesville. Yeah, it’s really, really good. The coffee comes through despite the nitro and is in fact a bit too acidic. That would be my one hangup. But a damn good coffee stout.

Bottle courtesy of Retorp. Pours a dark black color with no head. Aroma is pure freshly cracked roasted coffee beans (that I could smell the minute the bottle was opened). Flavor is almost exactly the same with some hints of vanilla and cream with fainter notes of raisins, roasted malts and spice. Full body with lingering coffee finish. If you like coffee beers, this is the granddaddy of them all.
