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.

Great. Dark black. Smells like the coffee I sipped on earlier today. Some espresso. Roasted. Subtle sweetness in middle of taste. Probably rated it a bit higher than usual because Im on a stout/porter kick....especially coffee stout.

A black body trimmed in mahogany with a light tan, smoothly structured head falling to a thick ring and large island with low lying, extended peninsulas of lace
Big coffee notes dominate with complimentary notes of sweet cream and chocolate on a somewhat gelatinous medium, pretty simple, but enjoyable
12oz bottle served at 45ļ into 14.7oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter

Big roasty coffee nose. Some acidity some almost burnt danky notes. Definitely coffee beans. Fresh. Almost black pour with a tan head. Nice full coffee flavor. Some light sweetness underneath. Pretty much all coffee. But not overly agressive or burnt. Only problem to me is flabby carbonation. Other than that it tastes nice.

HURK. If you really really like coffee, I mean like eating grounds straight by themselves with a spoon, youíll love this brew! This beer *literally* tastes like straight burned coffee grounds! Wayyyyyyy too "dark roast" for me to handle. Could barely finish a bottle. Yeck.

First and foremost is the coffee. Not just a coffee bean but a distinct espresso flavor. Everything else is secondary. The other components, malt check, hops, check, balanced but leaving the coffee as the star.
