4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy copper with a one finger beige head. Aroma is coffee. Not sure about the chocolate. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is really coffee. Takes awhile for the chocolate to show up, but it outlasts the coffee. This is stark. They really put a lot into this one. Whoof.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong wet coffee ground aroma, very dark brown, small tan head. With each sip I get gritty squeezed roasted coffee and no chocolate. Sticks to the roof of my mouth, coffee seems old and discarded. On paper I should like this more. Not enough malt to stand up to all the coffee? No cocoa in the finish, but plenty sweet.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich brown body with luscious silky chocolate cream head. Chocolate-covered espresso bean aroma filled with floral coffee. Outstanding aroma, oh so tantalizing. The body resonates with coffee flavor and roastiness with a ground coffee finish. Touches of chocolate send wrinkles through the coffee body.

First time on tap at Naked City. It is the most coffee smelling beer I have had. It is like a fresh scoop of ground coffee. Appearance is brown with a well maintained light tan head. Flavor is intensely coffee. Starbuck junkies will love this. The palate is a toasty grain. Very, very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, courtesy dchmela. Pours a lightly hazy, reddish-chestnut color with a small, smooth head of dark tan foam. Wet, sudsy lacing mostly rejoins the body, leaving little spots behind to dry. Aromas include big-time espresso roast, ultra dry, powdery cocoa, dried caramel, and hints of earthen hops. Flavors are straightforward and well balanced, showing sweet choco-caramel undertones beneath a heavy blanket of roasty, toasty, dark coffee. The palate resembles that of an Irish stout, medium bodied and sort of ashy-dry, with overly active carbonation. Itís a tasty enough brew, but it wonít knock your socks off.

Bottle. Bonused by JW77. Fairly opaque dark brown pour with a medium size beige head. Aroma mainly of ground coffee beans and a bit of chocolate. Lot of coffee in the flavor as well with notes of milk chocolate. Smooth, creamy though slightly thin mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from 22-oz bomber and shared by moelikebeer. Pours a near opaque dark brown colored brew with a decent sized beige head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of fresh ground Folgers coffee, a hint of roasted dark malt and some floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of sweet pitted fruit, more coffee, a hitn of roated dark malt and candi sugar. Finish is quite sweet, some apple, coffee and some red berries. One of the sweetest coffee stouts Iíve tried.
