UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Coffee with many lumps of sugar. Classic looking dark brown with a large heads as stout go(meaning a half inch that quickly dissipated into a brown head that traverses the class). Aroma of sweet coffee. Flavor has enough bitterness to make it interesting. Carbonated. Sweet finish. As Popeye would say "I am what I am". Thanks Mitch

Dark auburn color, small head, adequate lacing. Nose of soy, chocolate & loads of soft roasted coffee. Nose maltiness with light bitter coffee notes, roast & fruity melon. Good complex stout, a bit lacking in the darker roast but is compensated by the hardcore coffee.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Pours a really dark brown with a nice had and a great lace. Not *much* more you could ask for here. Aroma is of a typical stout, actually, with just a bit more coffee than usual. It’s far from overwhelming as I was expecting. Flavor is close to the scent: Great for style with just a bit more coffee than usual. It’s great, don’t get me wrong. Definate coffee taste (duh), some toffee and caramel, and lots of great roasted malt ballanced nicely with some hop bitterness, but just enough to keep it interesting. Palate has a *great* minearl mouthfeel that almost rivals Sheaf Stout. This is also very thick and creamy. Best palate I’ve had in a long time. Overall, this is solid and worth seeking out. Not my favorite stout, but a damn good example of the style.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Dark brown with a ruby hints and a creamy tan head with slight lacing. From a foot away I can smell the coffee. Closer, I find hints of mocha and roast. Bitter hops. Figs and raisins. Some sweet caramel. The flavors mellow in the coffee department. The mocha is still there but muted. Roast comes out with the mocha first leading into the bitter hops and coffee. Thick and chewy beer. Trails into a bitter finish of coffee. I had hoped for more coffee, and was a bit let down, though I find the stout to be a pretty good beer.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Pours dark brown in color, aroma is very rich, dark, and roasty coffeeness as one might expect in a stout such as this. Taste is very sweet with hint of Dark chocolate then turning to maybe some raisin presence and finishing sweet with some mocha taste. Very tasty brew with a lot going on. who needs candy bares when you got this stuff.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Nice and espresso-laden, creamy and chewy at first but disappates a bit too rapidly. Light alchohol influence despite the ABV and less chocolate malt than I was expecting - although in all fairness it is a cappuccino stout, not a mocha stout. Surprisingly red in color, nice head, and great looking in general. Tasty, but not a beer that grabs you by the balls by any means.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Almost black with ruby highlights when held to the light. Massive, dense, lasting tan head. Aroma is coffee and alcohol. Flavor is deep and rich with a strong initial alcohol burn, coffee flavors develops and continues to grow till the end. Mouthfeel is full and round. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of coffee bitterness.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Black body with a medium kahki head. Roasty coffee, some dark fruit in the aroma. Roasted barley, rasins and plum, coffee beans. Light sweetness, fairly dry finish. Very nice stout.

SDalkoholic (2183) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 12, 2004
The usual description for a stout that i give; Dark and opaque body and khaki head. Head does break up and leave a O-ring in the glass with some big bubbles. Aroma is milky and light roasted malts. For naming it cappuccino stout its a real played down flavor of dark coffee bean and half and half cream. All and all im glad i was able to try it out.

Pours dark in color. Aroma is sweet and creamy with some roasted coffee bitterness as well. Very smooth mouhfeel. Starts out sweet then goes into some hop flavor and finishes with some roasted coffee. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent brew.
