3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance: Black pour with ruby edges and a two finger fluffy khaki head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma: Deep roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some molasses and nuttiness. Taste: big nutty roasted maltiness all the way thru, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some dark dried fruits, ends coffee bitter dry and molasses sweet. Mouthfeel: medium to full body with medium carbonation. Overall: pretty solid. Wish it were a little thicker and I've had other stouts (not brewed WITH coffee) where coffee flavor was even more pronounced. I think some good barrel aging could do wonders with this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A bit old so the coffee faded a lot. There’s a light fruit/spice note in the background. Marshmallow, toffee, sugar dominate. Slight smokiness. Creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bomber (thx Rob)
Pours dark dark dark with tan/brown head. Malt and caramel aroma. Little if any coffee in the aroma. Noticeable yet non-harsh coffee hints along with caramel.
Tasted something else fruity but could not place it until I read of the blueberry in the beer. Nice touch.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nope. Didn’t like it. Watery, thin, bland, Out of all the coffee beers we had it was the worst in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large Bottle - Dark rich color. Settled like a Guinness and it's nitrogen bubbles. Sweet and creamy flavor. Slight coffee flavor but nothing overpowering. Like other stouts I thing these are best enjoyed at the end of the day after a good meal.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks preismj: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized light brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer.
First time aroma was only baby diapers and some berries, but after some time there’s more. Yes, there’s coffee, some bay leaf, roast, dark chocolate and prunes.
Flavours of oatmeal, prunes, some coffee, malt roast, some bay leaf, hint of raisin, some caramel, some dark chocolate, hay and herbal roast, rye, yeast, mocha and bitters.
Aftertaste is bitter, sticky, oat and coffee, some prunes and raisin and some malt roast.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a creamy sticky texture.
Expected more, not bad but with different top coffee stouts this one falls out of the boat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 750 ml bottle shared by my Dad, 5/2/14
Aroma: The nose is sweetened coffee, some roasted malts, and plenty of chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small brown head and some mild lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly sweet, coffee and chocolate, with some alcohol, and light roast
Palate: The body is medium, it is smoothish, with average carbonation, and a slightly sticky finish
I thought this was a solid, sweet example of this style, but I have found enjoyable ones that were this sweet before. Good stuff. Looking forward to trying the bourbon version.
