Growler acquired in trade with xmarcnolanx (thanks!). Aromas of coffee, coffee grounds, roast, and soem chocolate. Iím a sucker for coffee beers, and I was really into the aroma on this one. Tastes of coffee, espresso, vanilla, and roast.

Poured a dark brown color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, and light smoke as well. Taste of roasted malts, some nuts, coffee, and finishing ashy smokey... Not bad, all about coffee here though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a deep brown with amber note and a smaller off white bubbly head. Aroma of a ton of coffee, some dark chocolate and smoke. Flavors of coffee grinds, dark chocolate some hints of the oatmeal stout. The coffee is really up front on this one. A little thin.

Black pour with amber head. Smells heavily of earth. Taste is medium with a lot of coffee. Not much of interest for me here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz. Thanks, Theisti! Pours opaque black with a sudsy, tallish tan head that falls quickly to film. Minimal lace. Sour, chalky, heavily coffee-ish nose. Watery, nearly still, very coffee-forward on the attack. Light mid-palate and virtually absent finish. Pleasant but a bit of an unbalanced coffee bomb.

Thanks to theisti for the bottle. Deep brown pour with a medium head. Good retention. Aroma is coffee with milk and sugar, and some dark roasted malts. Medium bodied. A bit sweet, but itís an oatmeal. Very good coffee stout, overall.

Thanks Brewblackhole for the bottle. Dark color. Smell of coffee, chocolate, hops, cream, malt and flowers. Taste of roasted coffee, malt, chocolate, hops, salt and flowers. More coffee than anything else. Nice black coffee taste.

Poured to a jet black with tan head that disspated quickly and left little lacing. Nose was not just coffee, but more like day old coffee, and the flavor followed suit. The coffee flavor seemed to be somewhat masked by a slight acidity and pungent taste. I was not sure if this was a result of the alcohol creeping in, or just the beer taste, and the beer left a finish that was dry and somewhat acrid, both when cold and as the beer warmed.
I like coffee stouts in genral, bu this one was not my favorite.
