Dark black pour, lots of sediment with an off white head. Straight coffee grounds with tons of bitter chocolate aroma and tobacco as well, hints of some cinnamon spice. Flavor sours with the coffee roast, less bitter flavor then assumed, lots of milky creaminess and some sweet hazelnut. A fabulous coffee treat by my hometown!

Dark Walnut pour with a beige head. Intense Bitter coffee bean on the nose with some spice and Roast. Mouthfeel is creamy and the Flavor is sweet, iced coffee, a bit nutty, some lactic notes, and a bitter finish. A really quite nice Sweet stout from Ithaca,

Dark brown pour with tons of sediment and minimal head. Predominant trait of the nose is coffee, lots of cream and malt as well. Flavor isnít heavy by any means, but tons of coffee, cream, sugar, and a bit of hazelnut. Tastes like Starbucks, but better. Another solid offering from Ithaca Beer Co.

Black pour with a one finger tan head. Aroma is LOADED with coffee and roasted malt. A creamy sweet vanilla cocoa nib complements the roast and dark sugar sweetness nicely. Flavor is again loaded with coffee, while the roast is gratuitous. Sweet creamy milk chocolate complements vanilla bean and hazelnut. Palate is medium to full with e sweet iced coffee finish. Yum.

Amazing smell of coffee candy, not like fresh coffee- which is a downside in my opinion. Still a delightful drink, very sugary sweet. Bottle thanks to either JW77 or Ryan.

Growler. Quite enjoyable at the time. Sweet with a little dark malts on the nose and has bitterness masking some of that good sweetness. A little dark cocoa and coffee bitterness. Balanced and drinkable. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
Tap at Barcade. Deep black beer. The aroma is loaded with sweet fresh coffee. Lightly chewy with a bit of soft cocoaish bitterness. Coffee is not at all vegetal. A soft sweetness with a bit of soft roastiness. RIch, sweet and malty but finishing with a bit of roastiness. Itís pretty good really.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Growler (brought I think by ChrisÖ?) at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a clear blackish brown with a thin tan head. Coffee and jalapeno on the nose, with a bit of smoke. More smoke and stale ashtray flavors. Finishes with a little dry wood and roast. Somewhat underwhelming.

Tap at Barcade. At first I loved this, but that love turned to like which quickly turned to loathe. So freaking coffee, almost overwhelming. A touch of sweetness, but no real milk or lactic notes, just astringent, two-day old coffee grinds in both the aroma and the flavor. Drinkable at least is its saving grace.
