COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our coffee stout is a full bodied, rich stout that supports the espresso character of the coffee. We use 1.5 lbs of Sumatran coffee per barrel. Rich and toasty, the flavor leads with coffee and follows with underlying notes of chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit. Cheers!

Dark with ’crema’ head. nice espresso aroma. Palate a bit thin but flavours well integrated between the coffee and dark malts

Thanks To Daknole. Taste this bottle on a hotelroom with my wife. A dark colored beer with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of some drak fruits, prune, with coffee and notes of roasted malts. The taste of sweet dark fruits, some coffee, light/milk chocolate. The aftertaste is sweety with some bitter.

Very dark brown pour. Roasty coffee aroma, roasty soy sauce flavor. Odd. Not bad though.

A - Pours a dark black-brown color with a finger of frothy mocha colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted coffee and chocolate malts with a bit of black licorice and some light lactose sweetness. T - Starts off with some roasted chocolate and other dark malts with a hint of dark fruit sweetness and a bit of licorice. Through the middle, some more bitter coffee beans come through with some light lactose sweetness. The finish is a mix of dark chocolate and coffee with some light dark fruit and licorice. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, roasted, and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Good coffee stout. Nice balance of roasted coffee flavors with a stout base.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - JUN 5, 2012
bottled. pours black in color with a one finger dark tan head with lacing. aroma of chocolate malts and coffee. Taste follows the nose but the coffee is off, tastes like maxwell house instant, follows with sweet chocolate. Mouth feel is thin but that makes it easier to drink. Not too bad but not fantastic

Pours a dark brown almost black with a nice two finger light brown head that lasts. Body is slightly thin for the style but, goes down very easy. Aroma is amazing. Lots of espresso and chocolate. Strong aroma almost like a fresh cup of coffee. Flavor is well balanced but a little strong. Coffee/espresso is certainly the dominating flavor in this beer. I think I would like it a little bit more if it was a stout, with hints of coffee, but overall still a quality beer

12 ounce bottle thanks to someone who put this in the fridge! Pours a murky dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is light roast and coffee. The flavor is a big coffee beer with light caramel and light toasted malts. Pretty good.

From a 12 oz bottle into a duvel tulip. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a finger length tan head that shrinks to nothing and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is espresso, chocolate, toasted barley, and very faint pine. Taste is good black coffee, bitter chocolate, cream, and some astrigency. Thin mouthfeel. Decent coffee stout.

Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet and roasty. Nice coffee, cocoa, malty. Clean reddish brown black. Sweet flavor. Thinner body, smooth oily mouthfeel, dry sweet finish. Nice, so easy to drink. Good flavor, not overwhelming, but solid..
