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)

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Aroma of maily coffee. Black body with a decent head that resembled a cappuccino. Flavor was like drinking coffee cold with some sweetener. A thicker body and I may of taken a better liking to this one.

bu11zeye (12150) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a black body with a moderate creamy light brown head. Aroma of raosted malt, chocolate and coffee with a compairable flavor. Expected more coffee flavor, but less coffee is better for me.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Pours a deep, dark brown...with a good sized head. Chocolate and roasted coffee beans on the nose....and it tastes just the same, although the coffee is not nearly as forward as you would think. Pretty good, but I was expecting a bit more.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours a lush onyx with nice carbonation and a tan head. Aroma is a blend of chocolate and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and a bit of coffee in the finish but not enough to really justify the name. Wait, just burped after the first sip and really tasted the coffee. Not a bad stout; in fact it’s pretty good. Just expecting a little more coffee. I’d drink more.
