Start your day off right. This beer is infused with "cold brewed" Caribou Coffee. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with big roasted malt aromas and flavors. The coffee comes through almost cappucino-like with some chocolate notes as well.

Tap in PDX. Brewed with Caribou coffee? Yeah? Slice of MSP home while in PDX drinking Ohio beer :) itís a small world after all. The beer is great. Nice rich coffee aroma and some nice dry coffee notes on taste. Super good.

Great tasting coffee stout. Has awesome flavor--not too heavy and not too boozy.

This poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of fresh brewed coffee, chocolate syrup and roasted malt. Flavor was mocha and medium roast. Smooth frothy and tasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5973) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left exceptional lacing. The aroma was strong ground coffee and cream. The flavor was fairly sweet coffee, vanilla cream and a bit of toasty malts. Very long sweet coffee and cream finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite nice.

Super black - no surprise there. The scent ism what you'd expect for a stout, and has a slightly odd note to it. The flavor isn't as strong of coffee (or anything else) that you'd expect. The alcohol is a bit evident in each sip. Overall, I'm not as impressed as I expected from the name, deScriptions, or prior ratings.

Draft at Dutchís shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, coffee, light roast, soft finish, a bit too sweet and not enough coffee pop. Give me their hoppy stuff any day.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Pint on tap at Dutchís. Near-black color. Thin khaki head. Decent dots and bits of lace, kind of loose. Satisfying big coffee aroma -- mild roast, more on the sweet side. Butterscotch, berry type coffee flavors. Mild milk chocolate. Bigger sweet taste, kind of tingly sweet on the back end, mild bitter. Medium plus body. Kind of slick. Lighter kind of soft crisp carbonation. A decent coffee stout overall, with a satisfying amount of (interesting) coffee flavor, but itís a bit too sweet for me. I prefer a more dry coffee stout, like Stoneís Coffee Milk Stout. 7/3/6/4/13

Update rate, 4/28/15: Few visits to this, on tap at Dutchís again. Black color, with a thin khaki head, leaving great thick ridges of lace and swaths of lace. The coffee is great in this. Good creme type flavor to it too. A bit sweeter, but not bothering me as much as it seemed to last round. Enjoyable enough to keep me coming back.
