@ 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.

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.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow. So glad I found this. On draft at The Top in Gainesville. Deep dark brown/black with a small dark brown head. Smells like a morning espresso with hints of bittersweet roasted chocolate. Wow. Smooth as can be. Almost like drinking chocolate milk. Actually less coffe than expected from the smell. Some nuttiness that is almost like hazelnut. Very sweet and very rich, with a bitter coffee finish. Bitter chocolate lingers for a good while. Thick viscous mouthfeel, as expected. Get this if you can!

Nitro Brass Tap Gainesville. Yeah, itís 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 Joe. Big thanks! Iíve been wanting to try this for ages. Pours black with thin tan head. Nose is big roast and roasted strong coffee. Flavor is charred malts, creamy cocoa, rich espresso. Mouthfeel was nice and full. Hints of sweet sugars, mild oxidation.

Draft at the brewery on Christmas day. Black pour with a creamy tan head that laces. Massive aroma of fresh coffee beans, espresso, cocoa nibs, vanilla bean, roast and frothy milk. Layered, complex flavors of espresso, cocoa, vanilla beans, roasted malts with a earthy, bittersweet finish. Perfectly balanced, creamy and great beer.

On tap at Brass Tap in Pembroke Pines. Pours black with a creamy brown head and gear aroma of straight coffee. Taste is delicious, tons of coffee and espresso up front with sweet creamy chocolate notes and roasted malt leading to a smooth, java finish. Great stout

Nitro draft pour. Looks almost like an espresso coffee with crema on top. Smooth, as expected, rich, a little sweet but balanced with some coffee and bitter chocolate. An excellent stout for the style.

A: Pours a very evil black hue. The head rises to sky scraper heights and is a very dark brown in color. The beer clings to the glass nicely and the head has excellent retention. Spotty lace is noted.
S: Quite possibly the boldest coffee stout I have ever smelled. To say the aroma is of fresh roasted espresso beans would be an understatement. Bold espresso with roasted malt. Light chocolate notes.
T: I love me some coffee beer and this one is coffee on crack. The espresso flavor is huge right from the start. Has the same jolt as when you eat chocolate covered coffee beans. To be honest this beer really reminds me of just that. Bold espresso with hints of chocolate. A hint of sweet, dry lactose sugar peeks thru in the end.
M: Fuller in body than most coffee stouts with a nice dry bitter finish.
D: Very, I love me some coffee stout and this is one of the best of the bunch. Canít wait for itís release.
