4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is of beer, not much coffee in the nose. Appearance is of a stiff cup of coffee. Flavor is nice. I think it is a little dry but still enjoyable. Overall I dig it -- plus, the name is great!

This is really quite yummy, if you are looking for a stout, that actually tastes like coffee instead of having an over acidic roastiness. This was a nicely roasted cold coffee tasting. Rich somewhat syrupy chocolate mouthfeel, but quite tasty, and balanced throughout.

Really nice fresh roast coffee aroma. Nearly black in color with little head. Lots of roasted barley, and a very authentic coffee flavor. Moderatley bitter finish. Very nice coffee stout.

This was a really nice, big coffee stout. Pours black with a medium tan head. Tons of rich coffee in the aroma, not overly roasty, but a nice sweet ground coffee smell. Taste had a big blast of fresh coffee. It was nice because it didn’t have the overly roasty, big bitterness that many coffee stouts had, this one relied on more of a sweeter, smoother taste. Medium body, with a nice trailing coffee ground taste. Oh yah, and try this mixed with the rogue chocolate stout for an amazing after-dinner beer.
