Pours a dark brown, almost black with a deep tan head. Coffee aroma is huge. It's matched by a deep coffee flavor: literally tastes like iced coffee.

Favorite coffee stout, equal Bly to Great Divide Cappuccino Stout. Iím a big stout drinker and like a full bodied stout, which this delivers. My wife and several friends, who are not big stout fans, all thought this was the best stout of 2012. Canít recommend strong enough. If youíre looking for something new from a small brewer, this is the new challenger on the block for Founders, Bells...

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The nose is spicy coffee with some sweetness on the end. Nice balanced between the chocolate flavors and coffee. Tastes like a mocha. Very good. Thanks Bob for the beer.

Bottle. Black pour with a quickly fading tan head. Very nice roasted coffee and chocolate aroma that ends a tad thin. Taste is coffee and roast up front with a somewhat watery off flavor of sweet malt through the second half of the beer. Clean, somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Very dark, opaque color. Beige head. Creamy mouthfeel. Itís funny, these coffee flavored stouts, since a roasted malt combined with the right hops can provide nearly the same flavor, but this gives it to you in a milder version. Really good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle. Hugely roasty, coffeeish aroma, whatever blend they chose is extremely dark and aromatic, with a faint hint of dark chocolate and cocoa, a tad of cream and sugary sweetness, but the espresso/coffee notes just dominate utterly. Brown-black in color with dark brown highlights and a thin, fading head. Flavor profile is hugely coffeeish as well, more of that supremely dark roast accented by a touch of dark, milky sweetness, roasty, black malts and lingering bitterness. This is a true coffee beer, in the sense that the coffee comes first, then the beer. Typically this is more of a complaint, but the coffee (espresso) they used in this is just so tasty that it totally works. Not overly dry and ashy like some other coffee stouts I have tried. Somewhat thin and effervescent on the palate, with a light-medium body. Very much like some sort of fancy iced coffee beverage, to the point where I can feel the effects of the caffeine in this stuff. Not something to have late at night, as a result.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark opaque brown with good head with tiny bubbles and decent lacing. Aroma of coffee grounds and slight spicy fruit. Taste coffee grounds and roasty malt with only a hint of sweetness and bitterness. Mouthfeel is moderate/thin for style and ends up dry. A good try at a coffee stout and very drinkable but not very complex. Still, I would drink this again for sure.
