3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark pour with tan head. Nice looking beer in the glass. Aroma features the coffee and chocolate you would expect, but also a hint of vanilla, or something like creamer. Robust, well-balanced flavor. A bit of chocolate/vanilla sweetness hit first, followed by a long, bitter coffee finish. Full, slightly slick mouthfeel. Very good brew.

16oz can into snifter...one and a quarter times. This one looked nice with a solid dark black body and a khaki head. Nice lacing. Just like a nice stout should be. Aroma is big roast, fresh cold-pressed coffee, fudge, cocoa, and some light earthiness. Great solid aromas. Taste is full off bold coffee and fudge brownie flavors. Lightly sweet up front with a bitter and earthy coffee finish. A good balance of flavors. Creamy and medium bodied. I’ve seen up and down reviews on this beer but this is a solid coffee stout without a doubt.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can thanks to jcwatts, thanks John. Poured a very very nice looking pitch black body under a large tight foamy dark beige head. Aroma is simply great, notes of dark roasted coffee, creamer, hint of vanilladark well done toast. The body is medium with average tight bubble carbonation, the body is just a touch to thin and needs a bit more to make this one creamy. Flavor is nice but not as great as the aroma. Notes of cold coffee beans, dark toast with just a hint of butter, marshmellow, creamer. This is a great beer.

THis one is a robust super coffee-driven stout. Not usually a huge fan of these but this one is good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can. Pours a medium, short retention, mocha head, over a black (SRM 40) body....nose is coffee, chocolate, toffee/caramel....taste is coffee, lighter chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, leading into light sweetness, followed by coffee, hop bitterness....mouth feel thick, creamy, carbonation adds to creamy sensation. This is obviously and American Stout. The bitterness from the dark malts and the hops is quite apparent but is toned down by the sweetness on the finish. The coffee is more forward than in many and really dominates the aromas and flavors. The mouth feel is quite excellent and is reminiscent of an Oatmeal Stout. BJCP 8/3/12/5/7

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 This is one of the best coffee stouts I?ve had. I like the sweeter coffee taste over the tart you usually get. Overall creamy on the pallet. Pours, smells and looks great!

Bottle shared by a friend. Black pour with a medium brown head. Aroma of malt, dark chocolate and roast. Malty flavor with an overly acidic coffee finish.

Thanks to pepsiedcan for this. Black in color with a khaki head. Roasted malt, coffee, and a light chocolate aroma. Light metallic note, some toffee sweetness, very light nuttiness, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is mostly roasted malt and coffee. Some cocoa, molasses, toffee, and nuts. Very mild smokiness and a slight acidity and metallic character.
