Served on tap at Teller’s in Cincy. The appearance is a deep coffee brown. The flavors and aromas are excellent with a medium roasted coffee with a healthy does of cream. Some dutch chocolate dusting as well. A nice above average coffee stout, well worth the try.

Draft at Wholefoods Fairfax. Aroma is of roasted malt and coffee, but very faint. Appearance is dark brown, with minimal brown head that quickly dissipates. Taste is mild, not very complex, but very straightforward. Not a lot going on. Not bad flavors, just not much happening. Overall, one that I am glad I tried, but glad I do not have a whole six pack to put down.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Poured pitch black in color with a small, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Opaque. Slightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, cream, hops, and light roasted malt. Medium to full body. Viscous, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, finish is medium sweet, lightly bitter, and finishes lightly dry. 8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2010
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, some coffee, and cream. Tastes of coffee, cream, roast, and vanilla. Coffee was there, but I’d like it stronger in my coffee beers.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Smells like roasted coffee. Got on draught. Pours a dark black color with a bown head. Aftertaste is rich of coffee and chocolate. Not much initial flavor. 6/2/11. Taste is creamy. Has a rich coffee taste. Taste is richer from a bottle it seems. I kinda like this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joes in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a black color with a small tan head that produced a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint coffee, roasty malts and a touch of vanilla. The flavor was bitter and roasty with a light burnt presence and notes of coffee, floral hops, faint nut, wood and licorice. The finish was long with coffee, roasty malts and a hint of cocoa. Fairly full and creamy body. Solid.
