Had this on Nitro. Solid black, dense brown nitro head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, sweet milky cream. Taste is an excellent balance of bitter coffee and sweet malt, very milky again, smooth nitro texture, probably the best beer Iíve ever had a nitro pour of. I need to get a bottle and see how it compares.

22oz bottle, unknown date. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours dark brown to black with a small brown head.

Aroma features nice espresso and coffee notes, roasted malts, a bit of chocolate, some dark fruits. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is espresso & coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla and caramel, fairly sweet, minimal hops, on the finish there is a touch of lactic tartness and some astringency. Very little alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. A little creamy, a little sticky at times.

A nice coffee stout, but Iíll admit Iíve been spoiled lately by copious amounts of Wake-n-Bake and Founders Breakfast Stout. This one is a bit different than those however, using a Sweet Stout as a base, making this a bit unique, as those Sweet Stout characteristics definitely come through.

22 oz. from Chuckís. Itís a fine stout but I agree with some of the other users. Way too thin and watery for a stout. This would more appropriately be called an espresso porter. Smells great though.

Bottle: Jet black with a tan head. Hardcore espresso aroma with a malty finish as well as plywood. Thin finish akin to a porter. Good choco-malt taste.

Malty stout with a nice espresso at the finish. Would be a very interesting beer if on nitro. Would definitely drink another.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Black, thin sudsy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Roasted malt nose, slight lactose.   Seems very norm.   Much the same on the tongue but oh wow, THIN.   It is very watery.   Decent flavor, roasted malts, slight lactose sweetness, but it just feels watered down.   Body and mouthfeel is moderate to thin, especially for a stout.   Light finish, roasted malts, and watery... watery everything.   Their IPA was quite nice, but this Stout is just way too thin.   Espresso stout that seems.   This is missing BODY.   Way too thin!

Black color/ tan head. Big mocha, espresso coffe, dark roast malt aromas. medium bodied with soft co2. Good chocolate, dark coffee, dark roast flavors--a bit thin, but decent

PapaSkeetSkeet (1008) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Dark brown, light-brown head. Aroma is of dark-chocolate-covered coffee beans, fairly fresh, with absolutely lovely notes of dark cherry. Flavor is a blast of coffee roastiness, medium-thick body, fairly sweet and viscous caramel. Yum.

22 ounce thanks to Lance. Dark body with creamy head. Taste is chocolate and coffee. Smooth and creamy. Body a bit light for me. I like a stout a bit heavier.
