4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
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...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor is full of coffee, cream, chocolate and roasted malt. Very nice overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good coffee beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong coffee and not much else in the aroma, as it should be. A little bite from the carbonation. The coffee flavor is a bit mellower than the aroma would have you expect, but it lingers. Oatmeal in the background. Bitterness more from coffee than hops.
Straightforward coffee stout. Not much else going on other than the coffee. Iím not saying thatís bad, but thatís what it is.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful aroma from this beer. Great quality coffee put into this, too. Stout, yet somehow refreshing. Crisp and clean. Mouth feel a tad light.

Bottle. Pours black with fizzy brown head. Aroma is coffee, malt, sweet, mothballs. Taste is heavy on the coffee, bitter, with some sweetness. Very fizzy. Medium body.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
