Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black. Has on finger of a creamy tan froth. Smells of Roasted coffee primarily, and also chocolate, and hazelnut, caramel. Wow and it actually tastes like coffee as well, a cold, malty, carbonated coffee. Wouldn’t mind of these with my breakfast in the mornin.

Bottle from Secret Santa. Well the aroma makes up a huge amount of the score on this brew. Smells like you had just opened a maxwell house columbian blend can of coffee. Black body with tan head. Flavor was like drinking cold roasted coffee. Smooth on the palate thanks Santa.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Make no mistakes this is a coffee stout! Other coffee stouts use some really expensive mocha, espresso, starbucks. Not this monster. This smells and tastes like the coffee grinds left in the filter from your local Quick Stop. If you’re a die hard daily multiple cup, cheap coffee drinker,then this is your beer.
The appearance and mouthfeel was fine, I just didn’t like the strength and flavor of the coffee used. Worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew’s all about coffee, making a good candidate for a breakfast stout. It pours an extremely dark brown with a thick, dense tan head. The aroma is freshly ground roasted coffee beans with roasted barley and a splash of bittersweet chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel. The flavor’s has a solid coffee bitterness, but I like my coffee black and strong, so it works for me. The light addition of chocolate helps to smooth it all out. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours deep brown black with a small tan head. Aroma dark roasted malt and coffee. Flavor of bakers chocolate, dark roasted malt, and lots of coffee. Moderate sweetness and medium full mouthfeel. Non aggressive bitter finish, with more coffee coming out. The coffee flavors are strong, sort of like that pot that has sit on the warmer for a little too long. Fairly solid beer here. If you don’t like coffee or iced coffee drinks, stay away.
