Chocolate and not bitter, tasty and not heavy. This is a delicious oatmeal stout. I would drink this consistently, but not more than a couple a night.

Pours a light brown with no head. Aroma of coffee and sweet caramel malt. Taste is very sweet, malty with a bold coffee presence. Very sweet and malty but the bitterness from the coffee balances it out in the finish.

Bottle at Holy Hound. Pours clear dark brown with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roast malt with figs and plums, light vanilla notes. Flavor is malt dominant with coffee, nutty notes, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Chestnut brown pour with aroma of coffee, chocolate, and oats. Powerful, but not overpowering coffee flavor with vanilla, roast, and some oats. Very nice beer!

An imperial brown from Free Will...nice. Plots of alcohol but it isnít totally noticeable. Aroma of malt, wheat, oat, spice, raisins, vanilla and espresso beans. Coffee isnít really that strong. Taste is more dark coffee than anything, raisins, oak, nuts, oats. Well balanced and dry.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light brown body body under a small fizzy beige head that vanished almost immediately. The nose is a mix of coffee grounds, husky malt, and a slight bit of citrus. The flavor is a bit thin in the malt department, and the coffee adds a bit of astringency on the back end. The flavor overall is just a bit too murky and muddled. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering coffee ground finish. This sounded good on the label, but the execution was fairly poor.

I hate coffee, but love this beer. Somehow, the Brewers were able to take all the attributes of a solid brown ale.....then add coffee beans, ramp up the alcohol, and still keep it easy to drink.
Tasty. Excellent. Want more.

Very interesting brew. Usually with coffee flavors this big youíre drinking a porter or stout, but this is most definitely a brown ale. Bitter coffee notes, roasty. The coffee flavor is honestly a bit too much, especially with a beer thatís thinner.
