3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting brew. Aroma is all coffee. Pour is near black with brown mixed in. Quite fizzy and an everlasting head. Almost tastes like you are drinking iced coffee. More sour than bitter. Effervescence is borderline harsh. You can lick the sweetness from your cheeks and gums after swallowing, which evolves into coffee bitterness.

Aromatics hit you right in the face with deep coffee notes. Slight astringent alcohol side note. Pours straight dark brown with deep mocha, thick, creamy, head. Lots of stout flavor with heavy coffee notes. I do taste a little bit of a sour, coffee taste on the back end. Overall, I really like this minus the sour taste....

Pours a jet black with brown head. Nose and taste are all coffee. The thing I really like about this beer us that it picked a direction (coffee) & stuck with it. It is what it is & I’m a fan.

Obvious coffee aroma. Hard to pick out anything else. Slightly sweet on the nose. A bit of tang/acidity (not really bitterness) from the coffee. Generally smooth and milky palate. Aside from the acidic coffee after effects, a decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 16 oz can is dark black with thin off white head, aroma has notes of big coffee, chocolate, hints of coffee grounds and caramel, hints of roast and some spice notes and a touch of earth, a bit of the wet coffee grounds. Taste is a mix of milky and dark chocolate, some nice coffee and coffee grounds, hints of caramel and biscuit notes, touch of earth and roasted malts finish a bit acidic from the coffee. Pretty decent.

Very proud of this fantastic Iowa brew! This coffee stout pour a dark black, with a nice brown/tan head. Definitely could float a bottle cap on it. Aroma of coffee, sugar, and malts. Flavor is very similar, bitterness from the coffee and a little sweetness to round it out. Very impressive beer; always in my fridge.

Big thanks to doughofthefuture for sending a can of this out my way. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours near-black with a huge mocha head with quite the retention time and some nice ringy lacing as it finally subsides to a thin cap. The nose brings loads of coffee and a touch of cream, with some dark chocolate in the background. Flavor has a nice combo of heavy coffee upfront, followed up with some nice roast and chocolate character. Body is medium to full with a nice creaminess and a touch of dryness in the finish. Really a nice brew. Thanks again.

A thin stout, but the coffee notes are really nice. One of the best coffee stouts I’ve tried.

can. Pours very dark with a thick head that hangs around for a bit. Aroma is mostly coffee, but not overly strong. Taste is a nice oatmeal stout with coffee nicely blended into it. Finishes smooth. A good stout for sure.

Can thanks to Guerde! Pours very brown/black with a creamy dark tan head. My but there’s a strong coffee aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is very coffee, very chicory? herby? something veg, with a lot of dark burnt malt, and I think a subtle hint of chocolate. Anyway there is something that suggests a strong green plant aspect. This is bound to get your attention. Startlingly good.
