Let me first say that I love coffee. If you love coffee then you will love this beer. If you donít love coffee, then avoid this beer and leave it for coffee lovers like me. Pitch black in color. Smells like fresh coffee beans. Flavor is wonderfully one demensional...COFFEE. In fact this taste better than most coffees Iíve had. Smooth on the palate. Maybe a touch to thin. Pisgah continues to amaze me.

Can. Aroma is iced coffee, hint of sweetness. Taste is coffee, unsweetened baking cocoa. Medium body, somewhat milky feel, albeit skim milk. For a stout thatís only 6.8% it packs a lot of flavor.

One of my favories from Pisgah. Pours appropriately dense and opaque. Solid reddish tan head with decent lacing. This one is all coffee- like really good cold brew infused into really good beer. If I had to find a fault, could call it one dimensional, but it is a coffee stout, after all. Nice roasty/ burnt notes, chocolate, raisin and plum all in background. Bitter at the end (in a hops way, not coffee way) and a nice full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Delicious.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Pours black with small dark brown highlights and small light brown head. Aroma is nice coffee, medium body, low carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is nice rich coffee. One of the best coffee stouts I have had, a little carbonation up front and then almost still.

Bottle via trade with b3shine-- thanks Beau!-- and shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hearty, near-black pour, dense light brown head. Rich coffee aroma, roast and chocolate too. Thick body, fudgey, roasty, with deep rich coffee flavour. This is on par with DDCís Aphro! Fantastic!

Draft at the source during RBWG. Hazy brwon color, brown head. Nice aroma of baking brownies. Taste has coffee, chocolate, edge of burnt brownies. Tasty.

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.

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.

Keg @ Pisgah during RBWG, Asheville. The pourís brown with a small head. Dark roasted espresso. Ashy wood. Some cream. Sweet coffee cake flavor. Toffee, dark chocolate. Cinnamon character. Medium body, sweet and supple. Pleasing stuff.

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.

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.
