If you drink coffee and beer, why not do it at the same time. This is an incredibly dark and heavy body stout. Aroma of coffee. Tastes like coffee. Even a little pep. And its organic, sweet, the bitterness takes the place of hops and yum yum yum!

Holy shit this aroma is outstanding.
Aroma is sweet milky espresso, no astringency. Lots of milk, espresso and roastiness. Damn, I am impressed by this aroma. Usually I get a lot of ashy aromatics with astringency tossed in.
Taste is milky, slightly astringent, a bit thin, bitter/roasty, smooth, and milky.
Finish is slightly dry, a bit ashy, and bitter.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours jet black from a 22oz bottle delivering a rich full chocolate tan head which lingered for a good while. A waft of alcohol, a strong blast of dark rich coffee and some sultry brown sugar notes in the nose. Mouth feel medium-bodied and astringent. Flavor - can you say "coffee". Nice rich coffee with a malty sweetness but not too much. The flavors echo relatively quickly but leave a nice warm glow wrapped in an cup of inviting coffee and a kiss of bitter-sweet chocolate. Ahh...coffee.

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.

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.99
Black with slight mahogany hints beer with a luscious thick ,creamy tan head.
Damn delightful! Coffee nose,i like Sumatran coffee beans and this smells just like them freshly ground.This gets good marks for that.
Fine mixture of coffee,molasses and toasted oat in the flavour..coffee finish.
Great palate..smooth yet carbonated ,keeps things moving along.
I think this is a great drink..but you HAVE to like fresh ground coffee
