Good amount of roasted barley and coffee, with a touch of creamy cappaccino-like taste. Smooth, with some body. Black colour, good roast aroma, with some burnt part. A very good stout and a large enough bottle that it should be shared, and if I find other bottles I will share those.

Deep deep brown body with slightly red edges and a thick tan head. Smells fantastic, like a good cup of roasty coffee with hints of caramel. Taste is chocolate, cream, coffee, and a nice bitter finish. Palate is smooth and creamy. This is very good, but intense, I couldn’t drink it everyday.

The pour is a deep brown color, and the head is tan with some hints of orange I would say. The aroma is dominated by coffee, of course, and that is really it. The mouthfeel is nice, fairly heavy, and the taste is plenty of coffee. There are some malty notes to be had in there as well, but the coffee dominates. I felt the flavor could have been more complex, but they did accomplish what the bottle says--A Cappuccino Stout."

sloth (2400) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Large, light brown head, retention is good, lace is abundent and sticky. A black brew with an amber edgeing. Nose of roast and a surprising pineyness, chocolatey and coffee as well. Body is medium, good carbonation level. Chocolate, coffee, roast, caramel and some yoo-hoo action going on. Finish is roasty and hoppy, schweeeeet! Thanks Cliff!

Bottled @ Sk8vikings blind porter/stout tasting. Beer no. 19: Reddish brown coloured. Dense brown head. Sweetness, fruits, light roast and coffee in the aroma. Flavour is sweet, light herbal, roasty, chocolatish and has light liqourice notes. Is medium bodied and has a dry mouthfeel. Is nicely roasted and bitter in the end. I had better coffee beers, but its still a good one.

henrikb (1257) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2006
Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Dark brown body with red shine, light brown big bubbled head; Lots of hop , apricot and flowers (sweet ones like roses), with licorice behind, incredible balance and pleasant; Great body, well textured, soft and velvet like; Into quite long finish a bit watery, a bit thin in aroma but incredibly balanced, flowers, apricot and rose. Great balance, a bit more power without loosing the balance would make this beer perfect.

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a nice head. Smooth aroma of dried fruit and roastedness. Smooth flavour of light roastedness and some sweetness too, ends up quite dry.

A pretty nice stout, poured with a dark brown-black color with a nice thin creamy tan head. The aroma was of coffee and chocolate with some alcohol noticeable. The flavor was full of alcohol and coffee with a relative sweetness and presence of alcohol. The latter didn’t hide, but it was enjoyable. Mouthfeel was moderate: not too thick, not too thin. Bitterness was lacking, which was a plus in my book.
