reebtogi (5590) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
650ml bomber from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, WA pours almost black in color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee with some chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness with an earthy finish. Although this is a quality brew, I am not a fan of coffee (which is too prominant in this one) which forced me to take a couple points off. Just a little too much coffee for my liking.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 29, 2012
22oz bottle. Deep brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is rich chocolate malt, dark roasted slightly acidic coffee and some sweet caramel. Medium to full body with lively carbonation. Pretty good beer, carbonation seemed really high for the style though.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that has deecent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of coffee, a light nutty note, and a bit of dark chocolate. The initial taste is sweet with lots of coffee, some nuttiness, and dark chocolate. The finish is bitter with coffee. Light body. Medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (7221) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Portland, Or - John’s Marketplace - 22 oz bomber. Oily black pour, very thick khaki colored head, nice thick lacing. Nice lactic notes in the aroma, some vanilla and licorice as well. Flavor has some chalkiness, a bit of potting soil, and instant coffee rather than espresso. Thick and chalky mf. Needs work though.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle with Carla from New Seasons. Pours opaque black with dark red/brown foam. Smells very roasty and earthy with a touch of bitterness and alcohol. Feels too thin for a real stout. Tastes dark and roasty with hints of coffee, chocolate and campfire.

DialSquare (4235) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber from letspour.com. Brown pour with thinnish tan head and slight sheets of lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla. Tastes are roasted burnt coffee, hazelnut, milk chocolate, oat. Dry palate on the thin side - drinkable. Clean bitter finish. Nice.

dfinney23 (2658) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Intense coffee aroma and flavor -- espresso is definitely not a misnomer. Also a bit of chocolate and caramel. Good stuff!

Nice coffee stout. One of my favorite low alcahol coffee stouts. Medium body, black, nice coffee finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2012
In bottle. A black beer with a decent tan head that dies away fairly quickly. Aroma of espresso coffee, cacao nibs, chocolate and caramel. Similar flavours and not sweet. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. A lovely real espresso coffee character.
