Really nice opaque black pour with a deep 4-finger chocolate head that leaves a thick cap and generous chunky lace. The nose is of roasted dark chocolates, leaves the room smelling of a wonderful coffee house. Flavors are malty, semi-sweet, with roasts coming through a lavish dark chocolate, tons of coffee beans and freshly-roasted coffee. The finish closes with just a hint of roasted cherry.... and lots of coffee bean. The body is smooth and semi-creamy, providing an easy quaff to the palate, and has a silky body that is excellent. This one is spot on for java lovers, and is a gorgeous winter evening offering on this occasion. Just great, really.

Sample from a 22 oz. brought by Drew to Ale Alpharetta. Pours dark brown, with a small, tan head. The aroma is strong coffee, caramel, and cocoa. Malty sweet, with a strong, roasted bitterness, and an unpleasant soured flavor. Medium body, chalky, and thin. Overall, this stout has far too much coffee in the aroma, to the detriment of any other aromas. Maybe itís just because I donít like coffee, but I thought it tasted off.

Westmeister (1733) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2014
July Ale Alpharetta. For "just" a stout this felt like a monster imperial. Beautiful mocha lasting head on top of a thick black body. Lots of dark chocolate and thick black coffee with a semi sweet and moderately bitter lingering finish. Good stuff.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at Pisgah during RBWG. Black color. Nice thin light brown head. Couple dots of lace. Awesome big coffee nose, good dark chocolate. Nice, bigger chewy body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Bittersweet. Awesome big coffee aroma, way bigger coffee aroma than the ABV might suggest. Fantastic coffee stout.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft sampled at Wild South Brewfest. I should have learned long ago that I donít like coffee stouts. But this one embodied more of what I donít like in them: stale, dank coffee grounds and a burnt bitterness. A shame too, because the roasted barley and the light smokiness would have made for a nice stout.

Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of roast coffee, espresso bean, vegetal notes and lightly soured chocolate. Medium body.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Taster at Pisgah during RBWG. More of that Manhattan Special coffee-soda flavor I got in the Burial Doughnut but slightly more earthy. Actually itís more like iced coffee concentrate you make by letting coffee grains soak in cold water overnight, but that stuff is good.

On tap at Pisgah. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Burnt, black coffee grounds flavors. Black coffee grounds flavor - solid.

Bottle thanks to Bruce! Pours a dark brown with beige head. The aroma is strong coffee bean and roast. Medium mouthfeel with rich coffee and light dry finish. Good.
