Pours midnight brown w/ a shallow semi creamy froth decending slowly to a layer of fine silk. Aroma of sweet roasted cocoa. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are semi sweet and stout w/ a moderate roasted character. Cocoa, moderate roasted coffee bean, vanilla bean, and espresso. The hop profile is defined yet subdued. Well balanced. I love this stuff. It slides down like weighted silk. Nice stout bittering on the finish. Overall: this brew is fantastic. I really like the silky smooth texture while still maintaining her residual effers. This brew drinks like a refined Imperial Stout. Big yet balanced roast/hops/sweetness. A fine specimen indeed. Highly recommended. A favorite!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 good solid stout with a long lasting bitter aftertaste. Had it from the bottle but wish I could have done this on tap. Very thick and creamy and sweet. Definately not a beer I could have more than a couple of at a time, and pretty expensive (22oz for $4) at Safeway. Iíve always been a fan of laggyís and stout was the first style I was in love with. I canít say anything bad about it. Not much of that soy sauce saltyness. Iíll take this over a milkshake all day. ReRate: This is my stout of choice by far. Sweet, thick.... but the joy is in the hops afterward... wow an amazing beer and 8.3 for a drunk like me!?!?!? I still canít believe this bomber costs more than five bucks after crv.... worth it! best stout Iíve had so far!!!!!!!iím going back to give this beer perfect five because itís all I dream of in beer. GRUB.

Poured into a 12 oz. glass. color is dark brown and clear. Head is dark tan and hung around throughout the entire glass. Aroma was amazing, like fresh ground coffee, with hints of chocolate and citrus. Flavor was amazing! Mild carbonation, with a cappuccino flavor. Finishes long, dry and chocolaty. Full bodied, with a smooth texture. Overall this is a fabulous beer that I will be enjoying over and over again!!

Absolutely amazing, I love it! The deep dark color and smokey notes coupled with the amazing coffee aroma are wonderful Ö and it usually leads to a long interesting evening because of the caffeine involved. ;-)

Great Beer! This may replace my coffee in the morning. The beer and coffee blend seamlessly. Super tasty. If your looking for a coffee infused beer this is the best. Would like it just a bit more hoppy though.

This stout is amazing! Slight roasted malt aroma with a dard chocolate stout appearance. The flavor is dark roasted malts so smooth on the palate. Then as described, you can taste notes of chocolate.

Just a great aroma and thick, creamy head. The cappuccino really adds a nice kick and the flavor and body are just right. Great brew.

Purchased at UnDun Beer Store in Lebanon, NH

A - Poured a dark brown / amber color. 3-finger coffee colored head was produced.

S - Vanilla and Espresso Beans. Iím getting a lot of milk cream as well

T - Certainly a Cappuccino taste. Espresso beans, coffee, cream, vanilla and maybe some other sweetener like whole brown sugar.

M - Solid sweet carbonation, very alcoholic taste witha lot of malt that stays around long after you drink it.

O - A very delicious beer. I could drink this by the case!

Bottle. This brewing company surprised me yet again with another delicious beer. The coffee flavor didnít really start to pop until the beer warmed up to slightly below room temp. It was actually slightly better being a little warm.
