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.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of espresso beans and roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of espresso beans upfront, with a little roast and a touch of cocoa. Medium bodied and pretty monolithic. Very nice.

Great aroma of roasted espresso grounds. Dark brown black with nice stouty cream head. Nice sweet espresso flavor. Almost like a sweet stout. Great simple coffee stout. Not too burnt.

Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; 6.4% ABV
Expected black, instead itís dark mahogany, clean, with beige nitro head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly sweet, some roasted malt, some coffee, but also some taste of "bad" coffee. More roastiness in the final.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2016 Draft at Moriartys. Opaque black/brown pour with just a slight amount of khaki foam. Strong cold espresso aroma. Silky oily body. Big roasty coffee flavors but not much else. Done pretty well. No wrong notes.

Nitro, Pumphouse Pub. Medium brown. Thick nitro head. Has a vanilla, coffee character and so much nitro itís practically ice cream. This ends up knocking bitterness out of it, to the detriment of balance.

Very good for the low ABV. Obviously a bit thinner as a result, but very nice flavor. Roasty malts. Strong espresso stouts. This is not a sweet stout, as an FYI. Recommended.

One of my favorite beers from one of my favorite breweries. Smell of espresso and milk chocolate. Taste of roast and slight burnt toast. Flavor of silky smooth roast coffee and a coffee nose after brew is finished.

On tap at taphouse at PDX. Appearance: Finger tan head, dark brown color, opaque. Aroma: nutty, chocolate, roast coffee, earthy. Palate: full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste: sweet chocolate and nutty into roast coffee beans bitterness, but not too strong. Overall, sort of thin and watery in my opinion, but still pretty alright.
