Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at the Victoria Gastropub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a color that is close to black with a thin tan head and just a bit of lacing. The nose is some roasted coffee with the tiniest hint of coffee and roasted. Mild chocolate. The taste is some moderate coffee as well without too much else going on. Medium body with decent carbonation and a slight dryness. Drinks fairly well but is just a fairly decent coffee beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-11-2010

Pours like used motor oil with a tan head, so that’s a damn good start. Coffee dominated the nose, palate, and finish. If you like coffee, this is the beer for you. I’m going to try and get my mom to drink it at breakfast...she hates beer but loves coffee. I enjoyed it but found the palate a little unbalanced. I split the bottle with jcos and that amount was plenty.

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2011
Pours a dark black, with the dark brown head I always love on porters/stouts. Aroma is very nice, with strong coffee, roast and some chocolate. Beer is a bit sweeter than expected. Masks the alcohol percentage well. A little bit thinner than expected.

Pours ink black with one fine of creamy light an head. Nose is fruity wit a mild sweetness and some molasses. Flavor is pretty rich, definitely some fruit skin and dark chocolate, mild showing of coffee. Full bodied with a low carbonation and coating mouthfeel.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2011
Appearance: coffee black, with a rich, creamy one-finger dark tan head; decent lacing. Aroma: mocha, espresso, vanilla, cream, chocolate, whisper of cinnamon. Taste: like a chocolate-covered espresso bean, very roasty, with hints of toasted oak and cedar, and a bit of cream. Finish: velvety smooth, pleasantly dry, with a slightly bitter tang. Notes: Delightful. Flavors, palate and appearance were all spot on. Would drink this for breakfast every day if I didn’t have to work.

TrefwoordPunk (732) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2011
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours pitch black with a small tan heads and an aroma of roasted malts, mocha, vanilla and toffee, The taste starts out medium sweet, with lots of roasted malts, black coffee, dark choclate, and brown sugar, but than turns little bit sour. The finish has a bitterness of both hops and coffee. Nice brew.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2011
12 oz. bottle picked up from Brawley’s. This coffee stout does not mess around. It’s seriously black and heavy with loads of tasty coffee bean goodness. The aroma is a little metallic and not as powerful but the flavor took me by surprise and brought an onslaught of rich, roasty goodness. The palate is dense and suits the deep roast. This is a hefty and highly enjoyable coffee stout. Almost, just almost has the qualities of a Valdez or a Bells java stout.
