Slightly opaque, deep brown. Almost no head. Earthy, very subtle deep berry, coffee. Slight milky sweetness in the nose. Quite a lot of roasty bitterness, some mild underlying sweetness. Pretty thick body, decent amount of acidity and effervescence. Really coats the palate, very long finish. Good.

Poured from the bomber, this one says 8.9% abv not sure which year that makes it. Was far less sweet than I expected (good) especially for a stout, a little spicy actually. Plenty strong (good). Didnt mind paying $4 for this.

Decent coffee stout, fer sure. Awesome aroma, if you are a coffee lover that is. The taste however, reminded me a bit of cold wet coffee grounds. That aside this is a decent brewski.

Niall73 (2152) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a dark reddy brown with an off white head. Light coffee, light choc slightly grassy aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice, milk choc and coffee, slightly citrus, but smooth and nicely balanced - tasty.

This beer does an acceptable job of tasting like beer. Which I suppose is quite good.

temporrari (387) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pour is muddy dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has only as bit of coffee. Flavor is more pronounced, coffee grounds and maybe some chocolate. Its fairly dry for a stout. Looking at the abv and og, it clearly doesnt have much residual sugar. Its an interesting brew. Im not wild about it. But its solid.
