Bottled. Pours black with a dark ivory/ light tan head. Fades quickly with some good lacing. Malty aroma with more yeast than coffee. Thick mouth feel with some oatmeal and coffee notes. Tons of dark fruits and bitterness. Nice

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2005
On tap at David Copperfield’s, 74th Street and York Avenue, NYC. Black hued stout having a long lasting off-white creamy head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Delicious chocolate aroma. Medium bodied with creamy texture that starts with slightly sweet malt with expresso, chocolate and raisin flavors. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness. Well balanced. An awesome stout that smells and tastes like a cup of coffee with melted chocolate.

Thanks to SDbruboy for this in our trade.Nose is almost sweet like Lost coast 8 Ball,the coffee is at least the third scent behind roasted malts and some chocolate. A little thin for me but has all the flavors I was hoping for and a nice blend of them as well with the coffee and cocoa hopping to the front of the line.Thanks Cliff.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2005
22 oz bottle, pours dark brown, but clear and orangey when held to light, with a moderate beige head. Aroma is roasty somewhat sweet, coffee is noticible but not dominant. Flavor is sweet with lots of nice roasty bitterness, dark coffee and a pleasant hoppy tart finish. Full body and gentle carbomation. Nice after dinner beer.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Bottle. Dark almandine body with a thin wispy layer of bubbles. Nose is fruity and grapey-no coffee. that’s kinda weird. Taste-coffee is nice and subdued-not all up in yo bizness. Bitter on the backend, as I would expect a cappucion stout to be. Also present are rubbing alcohol, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Not bad at all. Very drinkable and easy to enjoy. Alcohol is very noticable.

They should release this year round. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Choclate/espresso aromas. Tastes just like it smells, deep coffee and chocolate flavors. Excellent!!!

Vey enjoyable indeed. Liked the coffee and to me was a very nice mix, not TOO heavy handed, and all too easy to drink.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown with red highlight and a thick khaki head with sticky lacing. Coffee and roast in the nose. Coffee, chocolate, and good roast flavors with no astringency. It hides the alcohol very well. Overall a this is a very balanced and drinkable stout.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Dense, dark mahogany appearance, thick creamy head. Chocolate, roasted nut aroma. Smooth, sweetish palate, plenty of chocolate, creamy (almost chocolate milk), mildly roasted, dry chestnut aftertaste. (rated 2005: 3.4) Dark dense reddish brown hue, good head formation. Rich cherry red wine and coffee/chocolate aroma. Mild coffee flavor upfront, chocolate and vinuous fruits in the middle, strong burnt coffee and alcohol finish. Could have been a little one dimensional given the name but dark fruit vinuous complexity is particularly impressive, (Rerate 2012)
