3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown beer with a one finger tan head that settles slowly to a well covered skim. Leaves an average amount of lacing. Smells of coffee, as the name would suggest, along with some cocoa maltiness and a slight hint of fruity sweetness. Tastes similar with bitter sweet chocolate being dominant. Finishes with a mild amount of bitterness on a medium bodied frame

Pretty darn good coffee stout. Surprising really. Coffee and chocolate nose. Mild malt backbone, some Char. Mildly bittersweet the whole way. Tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells delicious - coffee, dark roasted malt, cocoa. A dark brown/black with light head. Taste is smooth coffee, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt. Body dry, bitter, full, but a little light. More of a dry American stout; not a heavy ABV.

Pours deep brown hue with a small soapy light tan head and some ghostly lacing. Nose of coffee dusty esters slightly grainy and roast. Flavors really show the roast and dusty estwrs. Very lite body. Finish is somewhat toasty and a tad nutty. Decent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma consists of coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, and hints of chocolate. Coffee theme dominates here. The taste quite dry and has a very heavy coffee flavor. There is plenty of roasted malts still, as well as a healthy amount of chocolate. The aftertaste is a milder coffee. This is medium in body, has a more creamy texture, and some lively carbonation, much more than is typical for this style. Maybe not one of my favorite stouts, its still a solid offering.

I purchased an individual bottle of this from a local grocery store. Coffee Stout pours a dark hue with a thick head and a nice lacing. The scent is of coffee, cocoa and some malt. The taste is very smooth with the coffee mixing well with the cocoa and malt. This is one of the best stouts I have ever had.

Super thick n creamy head. Fresh pressed coffee aroma emits from the the pitch black body. Smooth silky coffee notes, roasted malts hit the back end. Good carbonation for a stout.

Pours a beautiful dark dark brown with an impressive creamy head. Very nice. Smells of roasted coffee and some sweet dark malt. Tastes creamy smooth coffee and malt. I think I just pick up sugar in addition to the coffee instead of chocolate or molasses, etc. Just a delicious coffee roast with some well complemented sweetness. Smooth and delicious. I had the Kalamazoo Stout earlier today and found myself preferring that because of the more complex notes such as molasses and licorice. But for being a "coffee stout", it does that extremely well!
