Draft - Espresso beans covered in dark chocolate. Deep jet brown with a decent brown head. Lots of coffee, lots of chocolate and and a really nice balanced bitterness. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a light brown head and light lacing. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malts, earthy notes and light vanilla. Similar flavor with mild bitterness and light sweetness. Light to medium body, a little thin, with a rich, lingering finish. Overall, pretty good coffee stout, although, the body could be beefed up a bit.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can pours dark black with a little tan head that disappears fast. Nice coffee aroma. Taste is strong black coffee up front, backed with dark roasted malts and a easy finish. A little toasty and smokey. Very good stout!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaue black pour with a small tan head and a little bit of maroon around the edges. Subdued aromas, but what is there is pleasant dark chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Flavor adds some sweetness as well as a bit of bitter roast as well. Thick body is nice to check on, but with an abrasive carbonation that’s unwelcome in a stout. Wish this was a little brighter with more coffee, it’s at least decent as is.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a dense two-finger head, great retention and lacing. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark berry, espresso and faint smoke. Espresso flavor up front, with a mild roasted bitterness, mocha, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Just a hint of grassy hops in the background. Full body, minimal carbonation, exquisitely smooth and silky mouthfeel and a dry finish. Loved this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Pours dark brown black with a medium fizzy creamy brown head that goes to a thin layer and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet and roasty chocolate malts with some acidic coffee.
The flavor is sweet chocolate with lots of roast coffee and a slightly ashy finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I like the sweet chocolate and roast coffee.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black as night with a very dense tan head. Aroma is strong coffee, some chocolate, and malty sweetness. Taste starts off as slightly sweet coffee and turns to a bitter chocolate aftertaste. Finishes dry and bitter with a little astringency. Delicious beer when the weather gets shitty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Maybe this was old, cause it seems to be liked, and I like Oakshire...and LOVE coffee stouts. Not this one, though. There was a little of that olove like vegetal quality that while not overpoering was a distraction. Coffee seemed a little stale and the body was thin and lifeless. I didn’t hate it as much as that would indicate. The aroma and look were nice, but the body and flavor lacking. I got the impression if the coffee were gone, this beer woulda sucked
10/14 - tap. much much much better on nitro and fresh. still won’t trust a bottle, but this beer CAN be quite good. 2.7-3.8.

Can at home. Pours dark with a thick tan head. Aroma of hops and coffee. Palate is medium for a Stout. Tastes of malt and coffee dominate. Very enjoyable.
