Poured at SAVOR. Dark black color with a nice looking tan head. Aroma is chocolate, with a *ton* of coffee notes - a bit like a iced coffee drink (without the cream). Flavor was roasted coffee, a touch of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but for being a lower abv one of these, it fits about perfectly.

superspak (4575) - Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2012
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours almost pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with nice retention, that reduces to a nice dense cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt, vanilla, cream, biscuit, and light herbal hops. Nice and well balanced stout aromas with good strength. Taste of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, biscuit, caramel, molasses, vanilla, cream, and light herbal. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, biscuit, and herbal hops on the finish for a short bit. Great balance of flavors, with a nice amount of robustness. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol presence is pretty much invisible as expected for 5.8%. Overall this is a damn nice coffee stout. A lot of well balanced flavors; with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. I really have no complaints. Really well done.

22oz bottle from LetsPour. Pours a stout brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, earth, espresso, and some cafe con leche. Flavor is similar with espresso and chocolate with some lactose and beautiful balance. Very nice coffee stout. Medium in body for a stout, and an enjoyable beer.

Nice color, perfact blend of espresso. Have drank a lot of coffee stouts this by far is one of my favorite. Really wish I could get it in the Chicago land area!

22 ounce bottle purchased from LetsPour, poured a dark brown, almost black color with aromas of pressed coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is roasted malt, espresso, and some coffee. Real nice treat after a long day.

Bottle: The aroma consists of cocoa, caramel, roasted coffee, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a two finger beige head with decent retention. There’s some sporadic thin sheets of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate and caramel. The finish has moderate roasted coffee with just a hint of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel for a stout.

On tap at Oakshire in Eugene. Deep black pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, more coffee. Flavor is some nice coffee roast a bit acrid. Dark chocolate floating around. A bit watery. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Had a nitro pour which i think kind of diminished this. Made it a little watery and flat. I could smell the coffee and could taste some great chocolately malts. I look forward to the bottled version......bottle version took care of it.
