22 ounce bottle purchased from LetsPour, poured a dark brown, almost black color with aromas of pressed coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is roasted malt, espresso, and some coffee. Real nice treat after a long day.

Bottle: The aroma consists of cocoa, caramel, roasted coffee, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a two finger beige head with decent retention. Thereís some sporadic thin sheets of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate and caramel. The finish has moderate roasted coffee with just a hint of vanilla. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel for a stout.

On tap at Oakshire in Eugene. Deep black pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, more coffee. Flavor is some nice coffee roast a bit acrid. Dark chocolate floating around. A bit watery. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Had a nitro pour which i think kind of diminished this. Made it a little watery and flat. I could smell the coffee and could taste some great chocolately malts. I look forward to the bottled version......bottle version took care of it.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
