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.

Gluepot (428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2016 A solid light tan head on a near black body. Nose features fresh coffee, cocoa and cream. A really we balanced IS, leading with fresh coffee, coffee grounds and cocoa. This might be the most powerful presentation of coffee tastes in an IS that I have ever had. With this taste I almost expect to be spitting out coffee grounds as I drink. Solid touches of caramel and roasted malt, and hints of cherry add to the profile. Medium, to medium/thin body with a less rich mouth feel than expected. Taste thins out a bit too quick as well, but still a nice effort.

Scipio (831) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Pours black with a minimal khaki head. A robust aroma consists of heavy chocolate, along with coffee, roasted malts, and a little bit of caramel. The taste is still full of chocolate, specifically dark chocolate. Coffee, cocoa, and some caramel impressions are found underneath. Some roasted malty elements come through at the end. This one isnít all that sweet, though sweetness is noticeable. A short and sharp aftertaste is chocolate. Medium in body, with a thick texture, and and subtle carbonation is found. A solid stout all around.

Bottle. Aroma is slightly creamy coffee and mild earth. Tastes the same. Smooth and tasty. Slightly foamy carb gives a nice mouthfeel. Very good.

A fine coffee stout...not sweet but not bitter. Mild flavor with coffee forward. No standout attributes...it is what it is....and is a fine brew. I prefer a thicker mouthfeel but considering it is mid-summer Iím fine with a thin pour and it is not watered...simply not thick.

Thanks Johnmay! (Great dude from WI and untapped buddy) This was poured into a nonic. The appearance was a dark brown color close to black with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. No lacing. The smell took rich dark and milk chocolate to boot at roasty and sweet coffee bean (somewhat espresso-like). Light cake underneath. The flavor takes the previously mentioned flavors to combine nicely. Lingering chocolate cake-like to cocoa rich aftertaste. Quick sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation rides nicely along - slight stickiness, but acceptable. Overall, really nicely done American stout with coffee and chocolate to boot, usually not one I do this time of year, but still well done!

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and slight coffee. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a roasty coffee finish.

emusche (198) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Pours dark brown with a thin head, decent clingy lacing. Aroma is almost exclusively roast coffee, muted notes of malt exist as well. Taste is espresso, sweetened somewhat by the malt but with a mostly bitter, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light for a stout and somewhat thin. Iíd probably feel differently about this one if I loved black coffee; as it is itís not a bad offering, but certainly not on par with the other CW stouts Iíve had. This could be amazing if it aged for 6-12 months in a bourbon barrel before bottling. As is, itís decidedly "meh."
