3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ PDX. Near black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, French roast coffee, black malt and light vanilla. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, strong coffee, caramel malt and a nice roasty bitterness. Full body with a creamy mouth feel. Really nice beer, lots of rich flavor and a great mouth feel.

Jet black. Amazing espresso flavor. Amazing. Not much head, no lacing. More coffee than stout. Some oats would make this close to a 5. Thanks aaron.

Pitch black body with a thin tan head. The espresso carries through the nose beautifully. This drinks like a refreshing iced coffee on a hot day. Some bitterness, but loads of depth. Long finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of aromatic coffee notes is very enjoyable and well balanced against dry roasted notes. Taste is a smooth mix between some rich black chocolate and aromatic coffee notes that are not too dry. Body is slightly above average with good carbonation. Well brewed and very enjoyable stout which ends up being not too dry.

22 oz bottle shared by Michael at Kane. Poured a pitch black body under an average to larger foamy light beige head. Aroma is amazing, cuP of black coffee and a touch of milk. Body is a bit thin with average carbonation to slightly stronger carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of coffee, dark roared coffee beans, coffee grounds. Very very nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee. Thatís about it. Good coffee, though. Flavor is nice roasted coffee maybe a bit of malt sweetness in the back. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Kind of punchy on the front end but totally disappears on the back. If coffee isnít your thing, this isnít your beer, but itís a nice drinking good example of a coffee stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in the Black Booty BIF on BA. Poured into a New Glarus pint. Black body with two fingers of biege head. Nice nose on this, itís just bursting with pressed coffee and some very light lactose. The taste follows the nose, coffee grounds and lactose/creme. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with light to medium carbonation. I like it, itís a good sessionable coffee stout. Could definitely relax with this during the winter and watch a movie.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a lightish cola coloured bottom and a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of tons of brewed coffee, a lot of roasted malt and a bunch of caramelised sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive brewed coffee and/or spent ground flavour at first with a subdued sweetness and a bitter malt characteristic. Aftertaste shows some more depth with a little spice note in the middle and even more spent coffee grounds at the end. Overall, an interesting beer that literally tastes like eating a bunch of spent espresso shot grounds with not much else - that said, it could be a lot better, and I was expecting much better, especially with the body - which is watery thin. I sampled this pint on draught at the airport brewpub in Portland International Airport (PDX) on 27-February-2012 for US$4.50 (deal!) before returning back East.
