COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Growler from the North Olmsted location. Pours a dark brown with a decent enough head for a beer from a growler. Aromas are airy and dark. A hint of coffee and chocolate are there as is a leathery/peaty earthiness. Flavor is pretty good-lots of coffee and chocolate, but they seem kind of washed out when compared to the imperial stouts that have jumped on the coffee bean/cocoa bandwagon. Itís very good, a bit simple and infinitely drinkable.

Nice coffee stout. Big roasted aromas with some subtle sweetness, including vanilla. All complemeting the coffee aromas/flavors. Coffee is star, but is has some nice backing undertones of chocolate and caramel sweetness. A nice beer, just wasnít the best to drink on a 90F day.

baraciisch (1969) - California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Slightly coffee bean aroma... Tasted like the wort of a porter... Excessively sweet without much balance or coffee flavor... Poor effort.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Nitro sample at the brewpub, and a growler from the tower for home. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium thick and foamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Rich body with a strong coffee character along with flavors of dark chocolate and hops. The finish is moderately bitter roasted coffee that lingers awhile. The nitro version had a more muted coffee presence but both were good.

Growler shared by Dogbrick. Many thanks for bringing this one back. Black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty coffee, a bit of cream and some chocolate. Coffee flavor with a touch of creaminess and some chocolate before a lasting bitter coffee finish. Solid.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2010
draft - Pours dark brown to black and smells of dark roast malt and obviously coffee. The flavor is sweet roasted malt and some good coffee with a little dryness in the finish of this medium to full bodied brew.

On tap at fat heads pittsburgh. Pleasant coffee malt aroma. Black pour w/ solid tan head. Straightforward coffee stout taste. Little weak on the follow through. Just had a blackout stout - so tough competition.
