2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 mL bottle. Aroma of malt, alcohol, and cherries. Despite the coffee beans, the coffee taste doesn’t come through very well. It has a somewhat sour, smokey caramel taste with hints of fruit and a dry vanilla finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(22 oz. bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors) Really does taste like cappuccino...Pours very dark coffee brown. Three fingers of tan head that recedes to a fluffy 1/2". Nose of vanilla, coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a bit oily. Flavor of roasted coffee with notes of capucccino and dry cocoa. A bitter smack through finish. Liked the flavor alot, would have been almost excellent with a more silky and slightly meatier palate.

Bottled. Thanks Fredrik.
Dark brown colour with a redish tint. Pretty creamy light brown head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of chocolate. Flavour is chocolatey with a hint of sourness from toast malts but no coffee was sensed.
Bottle was 1/2 year old.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Good with a croissant and morning paper. Not as thick as some other great stouts, but no wimp either. Perfectly balanced with a very subtle coffee flavor. Head reminiscent of actual cappuccino. Wonderful beer! Sweet and hoppy. Great off-white head. Yum!

This beer has a huge coffee smell and taste to it. Nice smooth feel to it. As it warmed, it seemed to bring out more of the malt and chocolate. I did find hard to tell this apart from many of the other chocolate/coffee stouts though, but still like it

the aroma was very full and rich, lots of chocolate, marshmallow, carmel, and espresso (dark roast) with some walnut. whoa. flavor is way dark and bitter espresso flavor that’s a bit too harsh for my palate (and i drink coffee like it’s water). not much of the carmel or marshmallow flavor, but the walnut and dark chocolate carry over.
