3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Eric for the bomber! Poured translucent coppery-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, light-medium roasted coffee and chocolate with earth, vanilla, and touches of darker spices and smoked meat when you dig really deep.. soft-ish overall impression that wasn’t "imperial" in nature, but would be great for a standard stout. The flavor found more of the coffee than chocolate, and it carried all the way through the drink.. some vanilla sweetness too.. dry-roasted coffee bitterness and some earth around.. a little coffee sourness on the finish. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. the alcohol was well hidden.. this was a smooth-drinkin’ stout, but again it wasn’t so imperial.

Taste buds destroyed by this point @ Hellbilly’s. Dark leather pour with a latte head. Aroma and flavor show roasted coffee bean and cocoa. That’s about all I got!!! Medium mouthfeel.

One of the better brews I’ve had from this particular brewery...and good stuff. Nice and light coffee undertones in a very mild and somewhat sweet stout. Not overpowering in any which way, and a nice sipping stout, especially after it’s warmed up. Would buy again.

This 22 oz bottle came from Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon, and poued a very dark brown with big foamy tan head and lots of lacing rings. The nose is just like roasted coffee. The body is a bit thin with smooth mouthfeel and light carbonation. The flavor is freshly brewed coffee with lots of roasted malts. Bitter finish. This is about about as coffee flavored as coffee beer can get but somehow it all works.

22 oz. bottle via trade with highibus - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malt. Well, so was the flavor. Some bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium body. A nice typical coffee stout. Thanks Tom.

Dark brown pour, beige head. Roasted malt, chocolate and a good dosse of coffee. Flavor is roasty and has a flavor of spent coffee grounds. Not bad.

22 oz bomber.
Great looking beer black as far as my eye can see..with a large tight bubbly tan head
Aromas of dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee, the aroma though doesnt jump out at ya.
The taste however does jump out at ya!
Very good dark roast coffee flavours, with roasted,burnt oat, dark dried fruits, and some resin like hopping in the background.
Great mouthfeel on this one, pretty smooth yet with loads of stuff going on.
Overall very good from Macs.
Not top class but very good coffee flavours IMO.
For $2.99 this is excellent value.
