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.

Bottle, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a tan head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is just lovely, I mean it just smells like coffee & a little bit of malt with a mild fruity hop thing happening... but mostly it juts smells like coffee, roasty, rich, lightly sweet. cooooool.

The flavor is pretty well balanced really, of course itís lots of coffee but it fits well with the roastiness and the sweetness of the malt. Itís got some light dark chocolate, itís got a medium level of bitterness, itís really pretty rich and delicious honestly.

Bottle at hotel bar in Springfield pours almost black with a fizzy tan head and sparse lacing. Nose is misty roasty and slightly sweet. Flavors show the big coffee but has some toffee and nutty quality. Body is somewhat lite but not bad. Probably need t hi fresh on tap sometime.

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.

thegreenrooster (3930) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 21, 2015
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.

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.
