Long Trail Coffee Stout is a black beer with a huge, frothy, brown head that leaves a solid coat on the glass. It looks supreme. It has a strong coffee aroma. Itís roasty and almost sweet. It smells great! In the mouth, itís full bodied, fluffy and very smooth. The finish is clean and dry. It has a nice, roasty coffee flavor. Itís well balanced and not really sweet or dry. Itís really tasty. Itís a simple beer thatís well done. I should probably go get more of this.

On tap @ long trail and also purchased a case in bottles. Pretty cool, has old hit the trail labels put on upside down,(reusing the labels since h.t.t. is no longer made. very green brewery!) Black color with a 3 fingered mocha head. Made with green mtn. coffee and you can certainly tell from aroma and mid palate. I also believe this to be the best beer from Long Trail.

22 oz bomber....one of many times drinking this beer, had it on tap and bottled. This is my favorite beer. Unbelievable. Pours pitch-black with a coffee colored head that fades kinda quickly. It literally smells like coffee + cream. Taste is even better...coffee, cream, a little chocolate, roast flavors. I donít know what else to say about it, but Iíve had a lot of beers, and this is the only beer that I buy EVERY TIME I see it in the store. Itís that good.

Had in a bomber with Ferdinand Hepperle, this is a creamy, superbly balanced stout. It pours black Ė no light transmitted through the glass. A fine combination of aromas and tastes well-mixed: roasty malts, chocolate and (in this case) coffee from Vermont Coffee Company. Yet there are no acid overtones in this medium-bodied beer. It is one of the tastiest coffee stouts I have sampled and hope to find it when I get home to Texas from New Jersey.

Bottle courtesy of balzac. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, sweet malt. Taste balances the coffee with the malt profile nicely with some dark fruity hints present as the beer warms. Velvety mouthfeel with a finish that yields some bitterness. Definitely a big surprise.

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.

22 oz bottle, via Zathrus13. Pours a pitch black body, zero light passing thru, with a one inch fizzy dark brown head. The nose is very roasty with some heavy coffee and cream. Very earthy and sweet smelling at the same time. Lots of dark chocolate, reminds me of dark chocolate M&Ms. Really nice flavor, not overly roasted and without any astringency at all. Thereís a nice citrusy quality to the coffee that works really well with the roasted malt. Zero alcohol flavor, incredibly smooth and drinkable. Smooth, not overly thick or cloying in the slightest, with perfect soft gentle carbonation. This was just awesome. Maybe one of the easiest drinking Imperial Stouts Iíve ever had.

Beer pours a dark brown almost black, no light through it what soever. Has a large brown foamy head that does not soon dissipate. Smells strongly of dark coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and a little vanilla. Like many Long trailís, not too complex but very good and easy to drink. Taste of bitter coffee and chocolate malt. You can tell its higher alcohol but the little hop presence. Finishes bitter, pretty good

SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 28, 2009
22oz brown glass pry-top. Had it at a tasty tonight at the Beverage Warehouse. Appearance: Incredibly dark and richly colored. Black/brown. Slight head. Nose: Medium-roast coffee notes, burnt sugar, a touch of creamy smoke. Palate: Rich and rather thick. Fairly viscous, but hiding that 8% really well. Lots of coffee notes, but theyíre integrated into the bold stout, roasty toasty notes. Notes: To be honest, I wasnít so sure how this was going to be. LT makes really decent session ales, but I wasnít sure how they were going to do in the "Extreme" category. To my pleasant surprise, this beer was fantastic! I really dig it and I hope they continue to brew it in some form or another. The thing that stood out the most to me was their integration of the coffee into the beer. It seems that some brewers forget that coffee has acid and oil, and more often than not, the beer gets a disjointed mouth-feel and texture. Not so here. Absolutely recommend it!
