22 ounce thanks to Lance. Dark body with creamy head. Taste is chocolate and coffee. Smooth and creamy. Body a bit light for me. I like a stout a bit heavier.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a few tan suds and swirls.

Aroma: Medium roast prepared coffee with sugar.

Taste: Black coffee with sugar. Roasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation level.

Overall: A coffee beer that doesn’t piss me off. Love coffee, love stout, but not always together. This one jived well with itself and me.

Bomber. Pours black as squid ink with creamy chocolate head. The aroma is a mix of charred roasted malt, dark roast coffee, burnt dark chocolate and brown sugar. The taste starts out with strong espresso, caramel and roasted malt flavors along with some oats, chocolate and citrus hops notes. The body is slightly creamy with moderate carbonation and a dry, burnt finish and toffee aftertaste. The smoky espresso notes blend naturally with the dark, roasty Stout flavors. Not a bad breakfast option.

22 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of mainly espresso and some bitter roasted malt. Flavour is more sweet than the nose suggests, with espresso, balanced by sweetened chocolate. Very light body for a stout, with light-to-medium complexity. Solid.

Poured from the bottle a nice heavy brown color. This is a simple review. Tastes like a beer-ified version of iced coffee. Just excellent and light.

jrallen34 (3488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2011
bottle... light black with a thin watery tan head... terrible nose that is all generic creamy coffee, milk chocolate with a touch of molasses... taste is worse, watery, old cold coffee, bitter finish... horrendous, don’t even bother

(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) jet black pour, dark tan head. Nose of very rich cream, espresso, nuts, decadent. Just smells awesome! Taste of expresso, a bit burnt, light body with a very dry finish.

Dark body topped by an exquisitely dar, luxurious espresso head whose espresso mochal tendrils ply beyond the nostrils to titillate the olfactory neveres. Wonderfuly alluring and conjuring up frou-frou chilled coffee drinks. Pleasant coffee body with definite acididty, meaning this one does not seem cold-brewed, but as if hot brewed coffee was then chilled and added at some juncture of the brew process. Bitter, acidic chocolate drop finish.

November 13, 2010 - Waterloo tasting with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. 22oz bottle courtesy of jerc & mabel. Nearly opaque reddish-black - obviously clear, but quite dark (i.e., not cloudy/murky) decent creamy smallish lasting light brown head (4-). Smells like espresso, nutty and dry herbal bitterness - the nutty malt really builds, almost like nougat, but not particularly sweet, very nice - nice!! Taste follows - full roast coffee and coffee bean taste, not burnt or overly bitter, it allows the nutmeat and nutshell roast malt to come to the fore, some baker’s chocolate and very restrained alcohol - damned nice, well-balanced and hugely drinkable. Slick, somewhat undercarbonated, average body, finishes smooth and not very acidic - the aftertaste is light and dry herbal bitterness with a residue of coffee beans and mild chocolate - very very nice stuff.

I’ve always liked Coffee Stouts. Call me crazy, but I think I get a caffeine buzz out of them!
