From bottle. Pours opaque black with a beige head. Lots of lacing. Aroma has vanilla, with chocolate malts. Taste has a moderate sweetness, roasted malts and coffee. Nicely hopped. Full creamy mouthfeel - very nice.

ChiGuy68 (393) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Rated from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a deep, dark brown with a frothy head thatís the darkest brown Iíve seen in a while, leaving fairly solid lacing. Nose has a roasted malt front with a hit of cocoa and coffee. Smooth, sweet, creamy taste of chocolate, coffee, and malt.

Coffee stouts are hard to do well, and Maumee Bay did a great job with this one. Flavors are balanced (stout vs coffee), doesn't coat the palate. It may be a little light on mouthfeel; I kind of want a stout to hit my mouth and get comfortable there, without coating. I would definitely drink this again, though.

Pailhead (4606) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy chocolate, moderate espresso, light caramel, and a touch of vanilla. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a good amount of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light caramel. There is some light fruitiness in the middle. The finish has light espresso, vanilla, and a hint of burnt notes.

Chuckaduck (624) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12/30/13. Pours oily, opaque brown-black with a fluffy, dissipating brown head. Aroma is simple but very rich; coffee, cocoa, espresso, some dark berries. Taste is very nice; cappuccino, espresso, creamy, bittersweet, earthy, nutty, chocolate, oats; finish is long on the coffee. Really delicious. No noticeable lacing. Chewy mouth feel. Medium-low carbonation. This was a real sleeper. This sat on the shelf for a long while; seemed a touch expensive for a 4-pack or a beer I had never heard of. But boy was I wrong about this one. Really fantastic all the way around.

Johnsense (753) - - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Thanks for the share bob! Black pour, an inch of tanhead. Roasted malt, black coffee, oats in the aroma and taste. Bakers chocolate, coffee, also prevalent while drinking this. Medium to full body with an oily mouthfeel. I want four more! - EDIT - should mention Iíve had bottles that have seemed a bit off since the original rating.

Opaque Brown-black with a good 1" tan head, swirls of lace. Taste is bitter malt with overtones of black coffee. Hop bittering shows at the end. There is a strong overtone of sour apple that enters near the end of the palate, knocking everything out of balance for me. Keeps it from being a winner.

I didnít smell as many different smells as I was expecting. Solid... Actually better than that, say fantastic beer! I wish there was more head because its about the consistency of pudding and just as delicious! Not much out of the norm to say... Pours black, tastes of chocolate, dark sugars and coffee. Glad I tried it!

Thanks go to Mike on this one. A good take on a breakfast style stout. Nice coffee flavors being the main point. Good stuff.
