Has this at the blue dog. Appears deep dark brown with a smallish tan head but well maintained throughout. There is some lacing here and there. By tilting the glass this way and that I was able to rustle up some more foamy head and also to gage the attenuation which appears to be well carbonated. The aroma is as one might expect: rich malts highly roasted, bittersweet chocolates and black coffee. The coffee aroma is the most pronouned, but aroma is also well balanced. Taste is again what you might expect, highly roasted malts almost to the put of being burnt, rich bittersweet chocolate and coffee, rich black coffee. Hints of nuts and molasses too can be tasted. A thick bodied beer here with a hint of creaminess before turning slightly dry. Towards the end soft alcohol warming is present.

22 oz. bottle thanks to Scott Stanley. Very deep brown color with slow receding head. Aroma is modest amounts of coffee beans, hints of char, caramel and coco powder.

The flavor is equal parts coffee and Chocolate nuances. Similar to a chocolate covered espresso bean. Decent amount of roasted malt backbone. The body leans of the full side with lots of lingering coffee. Coffee forward and delightful for the coffee lover in me. Still yet another quality made beer from this brewery.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast and chocolate. Medium mouth, strong coffee roast, cocoa, nice bitter finish, very good.

Deep mahogany pour with a brown head. The aroma of coffee hits you during the pour. Roasted goodness awaits my first sip. Taste is roasted malt and coffee. A little bitterness in the finish and in the aftertaste. Very tasty. A wonderful coffee stout. Just a tad bit of lacing.

On tap at the Taphouse. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a crisp coffee supported by roasted malts and a bit of dark grains. Flavor has roasted malts and coffee with a nice dark grain backbone.

Tap at The Tap House in Rochester, MN. Pours black, nice lacing as I drink it down. Aroma is coffee grounds, some bitter cocoa. Bitter overall. Sippable but fatiguing. Could be circumstances. Good beer though, tons of flavor and smooth.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasty malt and coffee, a touch of dark fruit. Taste is roasty chocolate and coffee. A bit thin for the ABV, but really tasty.

Coffee, coffee, coffee is REALLY obvious after letting a bottle gather dust in the beer fridge for a few years. Lightweight stout body makes sense given the coffee addition, yet some malt sweetness comes through (although the coffee’s bitterness is fighting to hold it back). Certainly the lightest weight stout I’ve had from the Central Waters lineup.

Black pour with a single finger, espresso colored head. Aroma is full of chocolate. Creamy mouth, velvety. Taste is full of coffee at the finish. Big time coffee bomb. Starts off like a mocha, then the coffee comes in and just crushes your palate. Very easy drinking though, if you like coffee.

Bomber into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours very dark brown, basically black. Small rim of white head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate. Pretty coffee centric. Taste has a coffee bitterness with sweetness to balance. Body is medium. Mostly smooth. Longer finish.
