About a 1 inch thick dark brown head from a vigorous pour. Settles slowly. Think and dense head of fine bubbles. Moderate coffee aroma with lots of roasted grains, some chocolate malts and a bit of vanilla. Color is a very dark brown. Pretty strong coffee flavor along with lots of roasted grains and bitter chocolate. I would not say that this is full bodied but pretty close. Some vinuous notes and carbon. Bit of grit in the mouth also. Finishes strong and lasting roasted grains and some cayene pepper. Lingering hotnes of peper. A very strange combination of flavors in this one but still pretty good.

Pours out jet black with a nice frothy tan head with decent retention. The nose is strangely vinous, like a merlot with very minor roasty notes. In the flavour I finally get the coffee, and it is magnificent! It has a robust bitterness from the coffee beans and black pennant malts. There is also plenty of sweetness in form of toffee and some caramel up front. The vinous notes in the nose are apparent in the flavour as well, mostly in the finish. It has an odd milky character, too. The mouthfeel is full and perfectly carbonated. This is a terrific and inspiring brew.

Bottle. Poured a nice black body with luscious head. Aroma is a pleasant chocolate and coffee scent. Very silky smooth body with a creamy milk chocolate and nice coffee bitterness. The flavor rolls around on the tongue for quite a while after each sip. Alcohol is slips in under the radar. This is well done.

Pours thick and black, with a short-lived tan head - lovely coffee aroma - in fact, it doesn’t really smell like a beer at all - it smells like the inside of a coffee shop - creamy body - the flavor is mostly dark roast coffee up front, with all of its rich flavors, and none of its strong bitterness - medium dry, though - tobacco, dark fruits, cocoa beans - a little bit of smoke and char - very smooth and drinkable, with well-masked alcohol (I would have guessed 6%) - well done.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours near black with a brown head. Roasted malt aroma with a solid amount of coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, a touch of chocolate and restrained coffee notes. As it warms the coffee notes become way more pronounced, it develops a hint of smoke, and a lingering roasted coffee bitterness dominates a rather long finish. Very drinkable, very enjoyable. Adds a nice punch to the solid resume of beers put out by Long Trail. P.S. If you haven’t tried Double Bag yet, give it a whirl.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2009
On tap at Bacchus. Pours a deep black with a medium tan to brown head. Roast coffee and caramel on the nose. Body is medium and ample with coffee, but not overpowering. Almost a hint of cereal malt on the finish, with a good amount of coffee bitterness. Nicely balanced, and I had no idea that the abv was above 4 or 5. It hides it really well.

Pours black with a off light brown creamish colored head. Aroma consists of a slightly astringent coffee, chocolate. Flavor consists of a somewhat chalky coffee flavor, slight hints of bitter chocolate.

zathrus13 (1764) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted and slight burnt malt. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, and lesser bits of fruit and burnt malt. This is a nice surprise from Long Trail. And at $4 a bomber, wow.

Tap at Buffalo Brewpub. Smells, well, like coffee. Duh! Black with dark tan head. Good lace as it goes down. Tastes like coffee with a hint of chocolate. Finishes dry. Highly recommend this stout.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Pours black with dark brown, almost purplish head. Lots of burnt/roasted malts in the aroma with tons of roasted coffee. Some slight residual sugars lend a bit of berry fruitiness that is pretty nice upon warming. Nice flavor along the lines of peche and founders breakfast stout, maybe not quite as well developed but still a great example of the style. Some slight chocolate and a bit of citrus at the finish. Some slight chalkiness at the end and that oily/bitter flavor you get with a nice cup of black coffee. I usually am not a fan of the brewery, but this is definitely worth a try.
