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...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Keir, thanks buddy! Black pour, not overly thick looking, with a thin layer of off colour head. Aroma, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts and a bit of nuttiness. Taste is slight roast up front, followed by some slight vanilla sweetness with a bitter sweet finish. Tasty brew.

12 oz bottle. Appearance is dark chocolate with a tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is espresso on the nose. Taste is espresso and chocolate with a dry finish. Overall is a very good beer with plenty of coffee and malt to balance the beer.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
