Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and of course coffee. Flavour is the same with big coffee taste.

pours dark black with off white head and some lacing. Aroma is dark roast and coffee. Taste is straightforward coffee with some bitterness on the back and some milk chocolate and dark chocolate mixed in, Has a little bit of wood aftertaste. The idea behind this is wonderful, but the execution is a little lacking.

Dark brown pour tan head. Aroma coffee, honey, whole wheat crackers. Acidic like coffee. Tastes like sugar puffs cereal. Licorice, wood. Clean finish like cold brew coffee. Some char, but subdued. I like these light bodied stouts.

monk191 (1092) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2014
A decent coffee stout. Pours a nice inky black with a thin tan head. Smells of coffee mostly, with some vanilla and toasted marshmallow. In the taste, we get chocolate milk right off the bat, with lots of bitter coffee coming in later. Not the most complex. Had in the bottle.

jmm635 (887) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pours jet black with a light mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate, big bitter coffee. Drinks smooth. Light body and not too rich and heavy.

"This should be in coffee stout (if we’re gonna break stouts up into 99 catergories). Aroma is light. Earthy hops and roast. Smells a bit young. Body is average, as is the taste, even though I am a sucker for coffee stouts. Moderately bitter with light coffee. Not quite a letdown, but under average for the style - average overall. 2014 - in tap at HUB, a totally different coffeerific beer. 3.2-4.0"

Can pour. Pours black. Nice dark malt aroma with some coffee. Nice roasted coffee flavors throughout. Overall, another good stout here. Nothing particularly standing out as unique, but good stuff.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2014
Tap at Hopworks BikeBar. Light creamy coffee nose. good roast malt. Dark translucent brown. Coffee springs up right away, not scorched as so many are, lightly sweet, with mild roastiness, and the roast extends to the finish. Medium body. Light, pleasant, gentle stout.

TheRatKing (122) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours motor oil black, which is a very nice start, in my eyes. thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Rich aroma of bitter chocolate and coffee. Tastes echoes this very nicely indeed. Nicely sweet without being overly so, just a bit of bittersweet chocolate on the finish to keep it balanced. I’d have a bottle of this for breakfast.

Tap @ brewpub. Erica and Matt N. Black pour, light brown head, really drinkable, slightly roasty just beyond an Irish stout but not too heavy duty. Light-bodied and refreshing for a stout. Was fun.
