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 bakerís 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.

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

The espresso flavor was too strong for me personally, but then I donít care for espresso. The real problem I had with this beer was the strong plastic aftertaste. It was a real turnoff. I ended up pouring out half a beer because of it.

Cybercat (3983) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Comes out of the tap a warm, opaque sable just a hair above black with a very fine-bubbled and persistent tan head. Roast coffee aroma has a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor is like a top-of-the-line mocha - quality coffee and chocolate with nutty, smoky and molasses hints. Texture is velvety smooth and nicely fizzy.

Thanks to someone for sharing this at the most recent Freetail bottle release. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of chocolate and coffee and is very strong. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of coffee and chocolate as well as some strong roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice coffee stout.

Tasted blind, thanks to TPatuto. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate, nutty, decadent and beautiful, with nice medium roast malt. The taste isnít quite the same. Falls flat, with hints of the coffee, but more like coffee thatís been sitting around in a mug for half a day. Charcoal, medium roast, and some dark chocolate. Thin and watery, with a real light body.

Bottle shared by someone at Oakquinox. Pours with a near black body and an off-white head. Aromas are vegital, espresso, coffee, earthy and chocolate. Flavors are a touch sour, thin, watery, coffee, earth. Very watery, thin, light bubbles. Could be the start of an infection.

brokensail (12899) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
A: The pour is almost black in color with a rather small tan head. S: Definitely a coffee beer. Lots of intense coffee and a bit of coffee grounds. There is some toffee and dark chocolate aroma, and certainly some roasted malts. T: Big espresso and coffee flavor. Coffee grounds are definitely there too. Dark chocolate and roasted malts give a little bit of bitterness. The sweetness is somewhat restrained, but there is a nice bit of toffee. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Pretty good coffee beer. Not overwhelming or knock your socks off good, but solid.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a mice dark brown really coming close to being black and nearly opaque. Small mocha head. Nose brings a bit of roasted malt along with some really strong espresso notes. Great coffee character. The taste tones the coffee down a bit, but itís still quite pleasurable. Good feel with nice carbonation. A very fine coffee beer.
