2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap - average size tan head, almost black color, very strong coffee aroma and flavor with some roasted malt background, not a coffee fan at all and not the biggest stout fan in the world so wasn't expecting to like this but thought it would be worth a shot - it's OK for me, but if you like coffee then you will love this one

Exceptional fresh espresso aroma and taste elevate this one above most other coffee stouts. Just enough caramel sweetness to balance the bitterness of the finish.

Bottle in Vail courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Roasty coffee, earthy, chocolate, toasted aroma. Creamy dark chocolate, somewhat herbal/earthy, toasted coffee flavor. Pretty good but not excellent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle at Pig and Finch in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is black, slight hint of brownish ruby, with a one inch khaki head. Pretty in the glass. The aroma is fresh coffee, light bitterness, along with a sweet milk caramel malt element. The taste is very similar to iced coffee, roast soft bitter of coffee, along with the sweetness of the caramel malt. The soft milkiness carries the finish. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and pleasant roast bitter finish. Very well done coffee beer, I enjoyed this, and I generally do not care for coffee beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one is from Sampson. Thanks! Pours an opaque black with 1finger tan head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma of strong espresso with a hint of dark chocolate. A little tart & a little bitter in the front, but very smooth throughout and long very smooth, finish. Full bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. This is a pretty good brew.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I am a Guinness fan, AND a huge coffee drinker.
This is a great brew, in my opinion, and I will most certainly get it again.
This I drank at refrigerator temp, and slowly of course. This is not for chuging. If interested in that, there are probably other websites for chuggers.
I appreciate and savor this, and the addition of Mudhouse cold-brewed expresso blend is really "sensed" and not beating you accross the face or over-powering.
Way to go Motherís!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep almost black with hints of amber when held to light. Bubbly deep tan head that didnít want to stick around. Aroma of freshly ground coffee, caramel, milk chocolate, toasted nuts and light roast. Flavor of milk chocolate, coffee milkshake, vanilla, roasted nuts and caramel. Well done coffee stout.
