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!

Pours black in color with a one finger head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of chocolate malts and coffee. Taste follows the nose but the coffee is off, tastes like cheap coffee, follows with sweet chocolate. Mouth feel is a bit thin but that makes it easier to drink. Not too bad but not fantastic

Very strong coffee aroma. Black cookie with large head. Sweet flavor with very strong coffee finish. Finish is too strong for me, but overall good beer.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass. Part of the "Beer Pipeline" with Duffman. Thanks Tony! Pours clear black, 1.5-finger pale tan head, spotty lacing. Nose is solid coffee, nice round roastiness, maybe one of the best purely "coffee" aromas I’ve ever gotten from a Coffee Stout. Further nosing reveals toast, Coffee Crisp candy bars, and something vaguely cookie-like. Flavours are coffeeish, very much so, along with round roast, big soft fudge, and a touch of cream in the finish. Astounding stuff, considering the weight.

djd07 (3584) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is roasted malt coffee and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet roastd malt and coffee with light bitter finish. A very good stout.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2012
From notes: Poured inky black with a creamy, 2-finger dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, perhaps with a touch of dairy cream. Some roasty notes also. Medium-bodied, deep flavors with a slight oilyness from the coffee. Flavor of coffee with some cocoa beneath. Slight dryness to the finish. Kind of an odd fruity-sweet note as it warmed.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours black with slight ruby highlights and a large, light tan head. The nose has lots of coffee, slight roasted malt, and mocha notes. The flavor favors the coffee side of things with nice black coffee notes, a touch of sweetness, and a little prune juice as it warms. The bitterness comes from the roast, not the hops. Not heavy on the tongue like some stouts, this brew is medium bodied with average carbonation. Maybe a little pedestrian, but solid and approachable. Nice brew.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Black with a good sized light brown head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, burnt malt. Taste is pretty mild, mostly coffee, leading to a very lightly dry, roasted finish. Light bodied, soft carbonation.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2012
bottle - Pours very dark brown and smells of the expected coffee and dark roast malt. The flavor is roasty and well balanced with a good, solid body and nice coffee character. Overall it’s a pretty good coffee stout though not a remarkable one.

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2012
Poured into a glass stein. Black with a finger of tan head. Looks nice. Smells like coffee, nutty and malty. Sweet tasting, burnt malt at the beginning with bitter coffee beans at the end. The flavors hit "one, two, three" without any blending or balance. Moderate to high carbonation, too much for me. Light body for a stout. An okay drink. It has a robust coffee profile, but it was not balanced with the rest of the stout. Smelled and looked great though.

umich03jm (1973) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2012
Pitch black pour with nice thick beige head that hangs around. Strong coffee aroma and a little cream too. Bitter coffee flavor with ok mouthfeel. Not much else going on. Not bad but nothing special.
