3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Wayne, PA] Poured an opaque black color that had a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of straight coffee bean. Thatís about it, same with the taste with a bit of roasted malt, and chocolate, but with a dry, bitter, somewhat astringent finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have had this one several times at the Monroeville PA location. Draft only it pours a thick dark black color with almost no head. The aroma is light coffee and chocolate. The mouthfeel is thick and rich. The flavor is bitter but less so than I would expect from this style as this is surprisingly sweet. The coffee is noticeable but not overwhelming. The beer drinks easily and pleasurably begging for a refill.

(DC) Creamy brown head atop black body, lovely lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, coffee, chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, strong roasty coffee, light chcolate. Medium body. A good beer, but the coffee elements are a bit too strong for it to achieve excellence.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap - DC. Deep dark browns and blacks, small creamy brown head. As it warmed, I got notes of roasted black coffee, chocolate, cream, with some light vinous notes as well. Flavors of dark coffee and chocolate dominate, but some citric hops shine thru to keep a nice balance. Medium to full-bodied, pillow soft carbonation, silky, semi-bitter, coffeeish finish. ABV around 6.7%. Very good stout.

I had this with lunch, and I would like to try it again when I am just having a stout for a stout. Very dark appearance and roasted aroma, but the flavor it this and creamy, with the frothy head it is almost like drinking an espresso drink. I await the next time I am near a John Harvard's, so I can try it again.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
WOW...I think this was the best beer I had on my trip to Boston. This stout from the Famous John Harvardís Brew House was excellent. It was a dark rich brown in color, had a coffee like smell mixed with the drak small of a stout. The rich creamy foam made this brew look ever so appiteasing. When you taste it is like a smooth rich cool black coffee but not as harsh as that would be. it has the taste of coffee and hops and malts. Like Cambells Soup Umm Umm Good!

On tap at the Wayne location. The beer menu had this listed as their íOrganic Coffee Stoutí. Poured a dark black, with red edges and a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of coffee, roast, and light chocolate. Tastes of coffee, roast, light vanilla and chocolate. Nice bitter coffee finish. Iím a sucker for coffee beers.
