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.

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, donít even bother

thirdeye11 (5780) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2011
(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 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 (4031) - 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.
