AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 11, 2010
Tap at Cornucopia Downtown in Eugene, Black body, thin brown head, aroma is dark roasts and rich coffee, flavor is dark chocolate, mildly chalky, mild sweetness but really pretty dry, big thick body - filling stout texture, rich coffee bean, doesn’t taste like enough to caffeinate you (try Bell’s Java stout) but enough to taste, good stout and it did its job after a bike ride out in the rain

Pour out of 12 oz can, dark black pour with tan head, laces well. Aroma brought notes of rich dark fruit, espresso bean, berry, hints of roast, coffee, chocolate, hints of grain, spice in there, slight vanilla as well. Taste is a mix of espresso, roast, coffee, earthy notes into a bit of toffee, slight bitter earthy notes, some slight cocoa, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Very refreshing, easy to drink.

Concealer (650) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can. Clear dark reddish brown with a foamy tan head that lasts on the sides and laces. Aromas of espresso and roasted cofffee, roasted malt and chocolate underlying. Flavor is espresso, roasted malt, and chocolate. Medium bodied and smooth. Lingering espresso.

Dark black. Smells like espresso. Tastes like watered espresso. Nothing great. ... kinda light for a stout.

Doofgoblin (267) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2014
What I like about this sweet stout is that the sweetness is balanced by the coffee and bitterness. The body is not too heavy, but it still has plenty of silky smoothness that feels nice on the palate. Oh, and there is plenty of coffee aroma and taste in here!

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can - black pour with a tan head - nose has a lovely, rich espresso character, without being overly acidic - the same can be said of the flavor - creamy texture, medium to full body - rich, roasty espresso flavor, smokiness, and bitter black malt, without any excessive acidity or char - well done coffee.stout.

In the can @ home, distributed to Colorado for CBC. Pours a deep brown appearance with a big, fluffy dark brown head. Green coffee beans, dark chocolate, heavy earth, and vanilla in the nose. Somewhat creamy, but heavy mouth feel. Quite roasty and burnt coffee. Fairly bitter. Kind of tasty, but not one of my favorites for for the style.

_angst_ (2374) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
can received as extra in trade. Thank you AdamJackson! Pours hazy blackish dark brown with a frothy blackish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, burnt crispbread, espresso coffee, cocoa powder, soil, hay and hint of currants and ash. Taste is bitter, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, crispbread, espresso coffee, soil, hay, burnt wood, ash, bitter chocolate, oatmeal cookies, red currants and burnt cookies. Mouthfeel is dry, slightly roasted astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny malty with roasted malts, burnt oatmeal cookies, espresso coffee, cocoa powder, soil, liquorice root and hay. Solid drinkable stout.

Nice roasty stout which is full bodied for the abv. Coffee is present but not dominating. Also noticing some cocoa, raisins, and toffee. Good stuff.

hopwine (153) - Bend, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Super rich, earthy espresso and sweet fudge nose. Brief, sharp hop bitterness fades to light fudge-y chocolate, followed by intensely roasty finish. Very dry and flavorful for the style.
