rocbyter (2000) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Sampled at room temperature. Strong alcohol aroma with a hint of roastedness. Black color, large light tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Nutty start that finishes with an alcohol bite. Mildly watery in the begining. Not alot of coffee taste for a "cappuccino" stout. Alittle creamy.

Trade with kmweaver. Deliciously thick creamy head on black. Strong sugary coffee aroma. Great sugary strong coffee flavour. Delicious but possibly too sweet.

OldGrowth (3058) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2007
bottle, from trade with shp555. Ok aroma. Sweet & malty. Some coffee, chocolate. little rubbing alcohol/medicine thing, hints of peat. Clean orangy brown color, ok head, minor lacing. Bittersweet flavor, Like aroma though I get a better coffee sense than from the aroma, knd of musty though. Medium to thick body, creamy oily mouthfeel that had a fizziness about it. Bitterdry finish. I got bored of this half way through, only my catholic guilt saved this from the drain. Didn’t think the cappuccino came through that well in the aroma or flavor.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Shp555: Poured a medium black color ale with a medium dark brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of coffee is dominating (what a surprise!!!) with some subtle bitter roasted malt. Taste is also dominated by the coffee with some roasted malt. Body is a bit light IMO with some adequate carbonation.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 3, 2007
Nose of heavy coffee & berry, with some alcohol & medicine. Pours with a beautiful cascade. Very dark brown with garnet highlights. The tall tight wiggly creamy rocky head is mostly lasting with nice lace. The brew starts with a malty sweetness and a touch of bitterness. The sweet middle gives way to a huge coffee bitterness at the finish as the brew warms. The medium to full body is soft & creamy, the finish feels slightly alcoholic. Gave me the itis!

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
A very nice stout. Pour is very very black. Head was thick and lingered for a long time. Mouthfeel was very smooth with a coffee aftertaste. Flavor is a strong stout with a smooth coffee flavoring. A very very nice stout.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2007
22oz bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with a small tan head. Not as thick as I would have expected. Aroma is that of muted coffee and malt. The coffee comes through more in the taste. Very mellow...easy to drink.

Strykzone (6025) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2007
A classic looking stout. It is very dark with reddish highlights. Plenty of dark tan head hangs around with nice lacing. Aroma is muted. Flavor is quite nice with lots of roastiness and more sweetness than expected. Coffee flavor is noticeable and a bitter after taste lingers for a while. Nice balance to this beer and everything about it says quality ingredients.
