Opaque brown with a tall tan head that leaves generous lacing on the glass. Sweet brown sugar aroma with roasted notes. Thick body with an intense chocolaty sweetness up front lending to a roasted bitterness of coffee flavors.

Pours with a light brown, five-finger head that goes slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Virtually black color. Nose is roasted coffee. Smooth, roasted/burnt coffee flavor. Lingering burnt coffee after taste. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Haggens Beaverton, OR.

mar (5229) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
black pour with a head that lasts quite a while. lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose but that’s about it. the head tastes like coffee and it’s actually quite thick for what i was expecting. nice coffee aftertaste as well.

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours very dark brown with brown head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor also has lots of roast coffee and chocolate with some cream in there. Palate is a little thinner than i expected but still nice. Overall a pretty nice beer. Has a good alcohol punch but not overbearing(although my buzz is strong right now). pretty nice beer.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours opaque with small tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt, fruity hops, tasty roast. Creamy and full with a nice long bitter finish. Serious alcohol kick. Quite delightful.

Thick, dark, and slightly sweet. A little reddish when held up to the light. seems more chocolatey than coffeeish.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Extra from redlight from the Homebrew Mystery Swap 1.0. Dark brown to opaque black in color with large off-white/beige head. Aroma of cold coffee with chocolate, sweet roasted malt. Sweet creamy coffee, with sweet milk chocolate, mild bittering hops. Medium body that is fairly chunky. Not half bad, actually kind of good.

Rich chocolate flavor. Not a cappuccino, just a solid, rich coffee stout. There’s a nice creamy roast flavor to this beer. Very solid. Very good.
