This is an excellent example of doing it great but differently. Nice hints of coffee make this stout/ale a real winner. Get it if you can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was nothing super special or out there but was so smooth and tasty it was almost amazing. It was like mild coffee mixed with Herseys chocolate. ABV was not even there. Smooth and very drinkable with no bitterness or harshness.Semi velvety mouthfeel. I wish this was available in a $10 sixer instead of a $5.50 bomber. It would be a mainstay for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark with lots of hints of red abd a dissipating head. Why the hell you would filter such a beer is beyond me but oh well. The aroma is completly milky chocolate. Not much else. Body is med. with oodles of CO2. Flavors are really rounded with notes of mint chocolate, floral hops, and chocolate. Finish is bitter and drying. I donít get coffee but thatís me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My pour produced a picturesque head and lace that is a thing of beauty. The nose is subtle, with a hint of coffee and caramel. The palate is full and rich with a nice blend of hops, coffee, and malt. The finish is very chocolaty and long. Overall, this nice coffee stout gives you both booze and caffeine to get you going.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a nice malty bitter chocalate feel but ends on a watery note. I would love to try the coffee portion without the malts and alcohol thrown in. Granted the malts provide a nice caramel flavor. The pour isnít especially dark or heavy but the flavor is pretty balanced out.

Brown bodied with red highlights. Coffee and sweet-roasted malt nose. Roasted malt and toffee flavor with other notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Thick & chewy with a bitter coffee finish.

Nice roasty stout. Aroma and flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a little bit of hops, caramel and woody notes. Nice flavor, but a tad thin.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown (semi-opaque) color with a large off-white head. The aroma and flavor definitely had strong coffee tones, but underneath that were some slightly burnt, woody tones...some smoke. The feel was rather thin, but still quite pleasant. I was eager to try this, and while it is a good stout it was certainly nothing spectacular.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Poured a very, very dark brown with a thin off white head. i was expecting a lot of coffee in this baby and got no more than what is in any other stout, which was disappointing. As a regular stout, it wasnít bad, nice malty toasty flavor with a crisp bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with an uneventful finish. If your gonna call this a Cappucino stout, it better have a coffee kick to it and this one didnít.
