Bottle from barleyPops - thanks, Dad! Dark brown pour with a pillowy mocha colored head. Aroma of coffee and sweet caramel. Flavors of coffee and sweet roasty malts. Some light chocolate comes through in the finish. A good, straight-forward coffee stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottles poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown hue, with a fingerís width of fairly lasting, tan head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted, with grain & malt, and subtle hints of treacle & dark licorice. Medium+ bodied, the taste began with some pleasant creaminess to the mouthfeel, then coffee, a little smoke & char, and moderate earthy & roasted bitterness that worked well with a lively carbonation. Thanks Jeff for the tasty share!

"definitely smells and tasted like a dry irish underneath - the thin body being the only drawback of this otherwise very good brew. I was hoping for a BIGGER beer, but the plethora of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors was nice. Maybe a touch of clove in the aroma too? Good, not great."

Reviewed from notes. Thanx Greg.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color. Thin quarter white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than forty five seconds.
Lacing, yeah, I guess that was there, uh...kinda and in a messy sort of way (why the hell is every beer Iím having tonight has a messy sort of lacing?), sorry for the stupid disclaimer.
The smell had a full roasted coffee bean conglomerated aspect of leading to a light dark chocolate and then a light milk chocolate. Both seem to stay subdued enough to not overdo anything whatsoever.
The taste was roasty and sweet with a super nice bittering coffee underneath.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body. The carbonation was there, but honestly not bad for the style and for me. Thereís a light harshness that allows a light creaminess to pervade lightly on through and onto my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a good American Stout that I would have again if I could get it. Iím glad I had the opportunity to try it and am slightly jealous of the state of Wisconsin to have this on a regular basis.

Black pour with a light tan head. Aroma is big coffee with notes of cocoa and roasted malts. Flavor is fairly robust for a low abv stout. Lots of coffee and roasted notes coming through. Very easy to drink but with plenty of flavor too. Nice stout.

Pours very dark brown with a large, light brown head.
Coffee, cream, chocolate aroma.
Taste is nicely roasted coffee, cream, milk, chocolate malt.
A lot of flavour packed into this relatively light beer....
An excellent, everyday drinking stout.

12 oz bottle pours dark brownish black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is coffee, dough, dark chocolate and toast. Thereís a creamy quality to this stout. Thin body and not much after taste. Mild and smooth. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pitch black with beige head, which dissipates quite quickly. Aroma of coffee and citrus. Flavor is light and not very complex: a light or medium roast coffee note, with a slight maltiness. Finishes with a bit of sweetness, which does not linger long. It really is a decent beer. I would never turn one down, but found myself wishing for a bit more complexity.
