Bottle. Good coffee aroma, subtle hint of grassy hops. Black colour. Nice stable dark brown head. The flavour has a distinct coffee flavour. Clean and mild, yet flavourful. Some cream also. Late roasted coffee aftertaste.

Serving: Bottle
It pours almost black with a small, tan head. The nose is a mix of roasted oats and malt, coffee, and milk chocolate. The flavor follows the nose highlighting the coffee and chocolate sides. This one is well done without being over roasted as some brews are. Medium bodied with a smooth, lingering coffee finish. I really enjoyed this brew and thought the had a judicious use of coffee. Bravo!

Bomber; thanks Brandon; pours thin dark brown with thin tan head; sweet nose of milky chocolate, coffee, burnt malt and light ash; light texture with flavors of nutty roast, dry coffee and bakers chocolate; not overly exciting or complex, but a nice, thin drinkable coffee stout

A-pours a dark black liquid that is quite thick. the head is tan, thick and creamy with good retention and a thick lace. S-pretty straight forward, huge roasted espresso, slightly burnt coffee, a nice underlying note of vanilla with a touch of dark chocolate in the back. T-the taste is big espresso, slightly burnt coffee, roasted malts. a light malt sweetness in the back with a touch of oatmeal. M-medium to full body and a very smooth feel on the palate. low carbonation and slightly crisp in the back. D-very big flavor and low on alcohol content. nice tastes and straight forward espresso. easy drinking, not heavy and still very tasty.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle, brought back from Oregon through the B.C. customs border crossing from hell (that’s another story... on how the B.C government doesn’t mind skull-fucking you with taxes on booze at the border-- just one more reason I will always and forever be a proud Albertan!). ANYWAY. This was a great coffee stout. Nice choice on the coffee beans, no vegetation to be found on the palate. Sweet without being cloying, flavourful without being heavy. I would grab more of this, only next time I would return to Canada via Montana into Alberta and avoid the B.C customs 55% mark-up on beer (and 85% mark-up on wine-- BOO!)

A- Presents with a dark brown-nearly black body that is very hesitant to let the light shine through. Pours with a massive 2-3 finger tan head which slowly fades to a nice thick collar. S-The nose is HUGE and the overall impression that I am getting is strong, dark coffee with big dark roasted malt coming through the most. There is just the slightest hint of vanilla in the background that keeps things nicely in check. T-Deep, dark, heavy roasted malt is the main character upfront-this is the main and dominating character. It fades just enough to let a hint of vanilla come through for the finish but that "BIG BLACK COFFEE" character is dominant the whole way through. P-Medium tingly carbonation with a heavy, somewhat sticky body. O-This brew has HUGE flavor for a non-imperial stout. Its a big beer all around. Its nice to see a small beer packed with tons of big beer flavor-but it does seem kinda one dimensional at times. If coffee beers are your thing-then this beer is definitely for you-if not-stay away.

NachlamSie (2766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2010
Tap at Clyde Common. Pours near black, no head. Aroma packs an espresso punch with dark chocolate, sea weed, and earth. Man. This tastes great, though it strikes me more as a porter. Lots of seaweed and ash are noted along with great espresso definition. Even roasted bitterness through out. Great beer.
