I was disappointed in this one...with its thin mouthfeel, weird blend of roasty sweetness and lactic sour milk. I found things to like in it( coffee, chocolate, toffee) but, as a whole it falls short in most catagories per style.

Dark brown wuth a thin, tan head. Interesting aroma of roasted coffee and sour cardboard. Cigarette ash, toasted bread, coffee, mild, earthy hop character, some light alcohol and dry biscuits. The body is moderately full and fairly smooth, probably not nitro-tapped, so thatís a plus. The flavor profile is unique to me: roasted and sour. Seemingly, this is lactic acid and roasted malts, mashed up, and itís not that good to me. Mild bits of coffee and floral hop bitterness come through at times. Usually, however, itís biting sour character upfront before transmogrifying into a roasted, bitter stout. Perhaps this is meant to resemble the old-school porter with fresh beer blended with stale beer, but this doesnít really do much for me. Not going to be a regular in my trips to Piece.

Black with a small white head. A lot of diacetyl in the aroma, rounded out by roasted malt. Moderately bitter, slightly sweet flavor. Highly carbonated (too much for my tastes). A solid beer, but very straight-forward.

Nice dark, chocolate color stout. Semi-sweet, but mostly bitter flavor. Some roasted flavors, chocolate as well. This was served way too cold.

Lighter bodied coffee enhanced stout. Black and oily thin. Dry as hell, like sucking on a coffee bean. Chalky middle has chocolate hints. Decent but doesnít go well with pizza, lol.

Small sample at the brewpub. Opaque and oily, tiny ring of foam. Bright chocolaty nose, hints of caramel and lime. Bit too much carbonation in the body, which tastes of grapes and prunes a bit but mostly bitter mocha espresso. Needs more body! But not bad.

BBB63 (5969) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Deep brown hue with tan head and some lace. The aroma hints of coffee, mocha, floral hops, oatmeal and grains, earthy. The taste has a mlaty burnt and sweet nature with bitter coffee tones. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Solid coffee stout, nice.

Poured opaque black with a tan head and some lacing. Chocolate, coffee and slightly milky aroma. Watery, heavily carbonated taste of coffee and some roasted malt.

Blah Humbug. Not very interesting. Watery.
