12 oz. can. Pitch black appearance with lasting head. Nose is roasted malt, light espresso bean and sugar. Flavor is show cases a solid amount of roasted coffee bean first, followed by bitter chocolate, light touches of ash and sweet caramel or molasses notes in the finish. The body has a nice chewy feel from the flaked oats the brewer uses. Carbonation provides a slight creamy texture. Nice level of flavor in such a low ABV stout. If you are looking for a session stout this is a nice option.

The coffee flavor here is the dry, bitter taste of a very dark roast. I would’ve loved more and brighter coffee notes, but overall a very nice stout.

styak69 (6) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 9, 2013 does not count
On tap @ Bridge Barvand Grill, Eugene OR. Very dark with smooth notes of coffee and chocolate. Thiner head but enough to cascade nicely. 9 in taste only because I would prefer it a little sweeter. Finish is slightly bitter but compliments the coffee bite.

Dark black. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Chewy and creamy. Espresso and chocolate flavor dance. Holy moly! Might as well have a coffee milk. This is the coffee drinkers dream stout! Yes, the flavors are sweet. In my opinion it could use a little higher abv, but the flavors otherwise are yummy.

On tap, pours deep red black with a thin thick tan head, laces well. Great huge espresso coffee with hints of wood smoke. Bold coffee, and burnt sugar attack. dry finish.

22oz Bottle Black/Dark brown with a small tan head. Lots of sweet roasted malts and coffee. Smooth palate and soft carbonation. Very nice espresso stout

brystmar (1236) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Pitch black body, swirly tan lace up top. Smell of fresh coffee jumps out, milk in the back summons thoughts of an iced latte. Body and taste are a bit thin and watery. Dark chocolate; bittersweet. Lacks the depth of the better imperial stouts.

BuckeyeBoy (2673) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2013
22oz bottle thanks to ditmier Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is fresh roast coffee vanilla chocolate and some hop notes. Taste is as the nose with lots of coffee and a nice sweetness. A little thin but we have to remember this isn’t a imperial stout.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, chocolate cookie). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Simple but pleasant nose. Balance is ok but not great...the sweetness is rather overwhelmed by the bitter-acid combo. Bit watery too. All in all just barely above average for me. Definitely not a "Sweet Stout"...at least whatever batch I have ain’t, not even close.
