Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and MDS, Harryís bottle. Black, tiny tan head. Nice aroma - coffee roast, lots of sweet chocolate. Great taste - silky mouthfeel, tons of coffee roast and cappuccino flavours, - very sweet. Lots of roast bitterness in finish. Outstanding overall.

bomber. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium sized brown head that dissapates. Aroma of chocolate and just a bit of coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate with an aftertaste of coffee. Very nice.

rickgordon (3851) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
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.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2007
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!

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 26, 2007
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

pineypower (2974) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Found at the local store and decided it would be a great addition to a weekendís breakfast. Pours out black with a moderate sized bubbly tan head. Aroma of coffee and slight chocolate. Taste is very well balanced with coffee, caramel, roasted malt and slight chocolate. Nice Mouthfeel Solid

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2007
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 thatís a bit too harsh for my palate (and i drink coffee like itís water). not much of the carmel or marshmallow flavor, but the walnut and dark chocolate carry over.

This stout was poured with a black body and a tan kakhi head. This smell of coffee is just a headstart of what you taste. Coffee is very prominent which is a good thing. This one is for you Duane. I wish I could of had a beer with you.

I was a bit disappointed. I thought this would have been a HUGE beer, but it was instead pretty bland. The Cappuccino was almost lost in the beer. Could have just been called "stout" and nobody would have noticed the difference.
