3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown color. I got a ton of khaki head, pretty decent longevity. Pretty nice lacing.
Aroma is outstanding. Espresso, dark and bold. Bitter and black, you know what Iím talking about. Thatís it. Nothing more on the nose.
Taste is a let down. I was expecting that same espresso, but Iím getting more of a Folgers left over grind taste.
Iím a huge coffee drinker and hate Folgers, by the way.
But anyhow while disappointing, the taste is slightly creamy and dark roasty. Hops? Maybe... I still like it, only not as much.
Mouthfeel is full flavored, not necessarily full bodied. Maybe medium bodied. It has a grit to it, like coffee grounds in your coffee. Itís like drinking cold coffee.
Overall, itís pretty good. Iím not sure how to rate these. Yes, it reminds me of coffee, good job. But itís not really a lot more than that. If thatís the goal, then you did your job. If the goal is to push the mug, then... However, Iím not disappointed in the finished product here. Itís enjoyable. I would drink it again, and would highly recommend.

Pours dark brown with a team head. The aroma has peppers, coffee and roast. It has a medium smooth body with light carbonation. The taste has chocolate, nuttiness and coffee. The finish has a bit of coffee grounds. Good.

Pour is black, little froth on top. Taste is dark, rich, gritty and coffee. Tastes blend nicely. Could drink this all hours of the day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is a wonderful roasted coffee. This is almost more of a espresso roast. Flavor is a great bitter roasted coffee with a prefect roasted mouth feel. The aftertaste is full of nutty goodness. Not only is this a great coffee stout with a rich coffee flavor the roasted nut aftertaste is equally stellar. Plenty flavorful and full of coffe and roasted malt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice, very potent coffee stout. The coffee adds some sharpness and acidity to this very rich, dark beer. Robust chocolatey sweetness finishes it off.

Taste like coffee. Blind tasting, Iíd guess it was iced Starbucks, not beer.

Bottle. Deep brown with a big creamy light brown head. Strong aroma of espresso, little earthy, chocolate milk and mineral water. Taste has a chocolate sweetness followed by a bitter coffee finish. Body is lighter with a foamy feel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great. Dark black. Smells like the coffee I sipped on earlier today. Some espresso. Roasted. Subtle sweetness in middle of taste. Probably rated it a bit higher than usual because Im on a stout/porter kick....especially coffee stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black body trimmed in mahogany with a light tan, smoothly structured head falling to a thick ring and large island with low lying, extended peninsulas of lace
Big coffee notes dominate with complimentary notes of sweet cream and chocolate on a somewhat gelatinous medium, pretty simple, but enjoyable
