22oz bomber compliments of beerboxer. Pours black with a rich tan head and a sweet coffee aroma. There is a smooth coffee and treacle flavor that starts off sweet, then finishes dry and more bitter.Very tasty and easy to drink. Thanks Brian.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
29-Oct-09 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 29-Sep-09 for $5.24 at liquidsolutions.biz) Pours very dark brown with some translucence at the edges, and the inch-tall, dark-tan head is very creamy in appearance and holds a thin head for the session. The aromas of coffee, roast, and yeast are the most prominent, with a bit of spiciness in the background. The beer is dry and minimally sweet on the palate, offering a tasty coffee flavor, but it’s restrained, not that pungent fresh-brewed flavor. The beer is mildly bitter, and a touch of espresso spiciness hits the back of the throat. Medium body seems a bit thin on the palate, but the beer is dry with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a bit light, but it grows on you as you progress through the bottle.

bottle, dark black /red color , has an oily coffee aroma, smooth roast and strong coffee flavor offset by a light body and creamy finish, surprised after the previous Oakshire we had

I love a well done stout and this one did not disappoint. Creamy and smooth with an enticing coffee aroma. Extremely drinkable - it went done quite easy. Would love to have this one again. Yum!

blankboy (6520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size frothy tan head. Aroma: Great aroma with lots of coffee, roasted malt, some earthiness and dark chocolate. Flavour follows the aroma with big-time coffee along with roasted malt and dark chocolate. Roasty bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Simply put, this is great stuff!

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle. Poured into a CCB tulip glass a dark brown color with a slight tan head that quickly forms a tan collar around the glass. Aroma is that of leather, coffee, hazelnut, and dark chocolate. The nuttiness is stronger in the aroma more than anything. Nice lace left on the glass as I swirl it around. Medium mouthfeel. Espresso indeed! Dark bitter roast coffee dominate the flavor profile in this one. Some leather type notes as well. Bitterness lingers on. Well, it pretty much is what it says it is, strong coffee style stout. Might use a little more malt to balance it out as the bitterness from the roast is pretty strong.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2010
[3471-20101113] Bottle. Mild poop and earthy roast dark chocolate aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy brown head. Roasted char-broiled meat skin flavour has bitter roast coffee wood barrel notes with a long aftertaste. Full body. Interesting but a little too over the top.
Overheard: "Paul’s got a fire hose down there... In terms of volume." "I don’t remember sharing this but thanks."

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2010
2010-11-13. Black body with a small foamy tan head that fades. 3+ Strong aroma of espresso/coffee beans, muted base malts. 7+ Flavour of coffee and coffee grounds, modestly bitter throughout, roast, bit one dimensional but still decent - which I find interesting since I generally do not care for coffee flavours. 7+ Average palate is light for a stout for my preference. Decent! Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland
