This black pour is topped off with a mocha colored head. Smells of coffee but it is faint. The flavor is coffee in the front and sweet oatmeal in the back. A very drinkable stout.

Nice dark brown and a tan head with slightly larger bubbles than I expected - maybe from the oils in the coffee. Fantastic coffee chocolate aroma. Taste is strong, lots of roast and some tannins. Almost feels a bit oaky. Pretty tasty, I enjoyed it. I might like this imperial style as it felt a little like it could be richer and more malty.

This beer is akin to drinking a carbonated, iced coffee. My only problem with the beer is in the mouthfeel. Itís thinner than what I expect from a stout. This may be due to the coffee thatís infused in the stout. If you like iced mochas. coffees, ect. then you should try this brew.

Bottled (brewed 11/2005)
Dark brown/ruby color, small tan head. Aroma of toasted coffee and light hops, like sniffing fresh coffee beans. Dark toasted coffee dominates the flavor. Palate is quite thin, a bit too simple with just coffee beans and not much anything else - but very drinkable as such. Aftertaste fades away quickly.

i have had this beer both in the bottle away from the taproom and on draught at the taproom. itís much better on draught. I didnít detect the taste of iced coffee, or I wouldnít have liked it.

I find this coffee aroma very very pleasing, as coffee is one my favorite aromas to begin with. Its earthy with a touch of roasted malt to boot. Brownish black color, opaque with a modest but thick tan head. Flavor is a tad weird, starting with a dominant iced coffee, moving briefly through a spicy phase that raised both habanero chili (without heat) and cinnamon. Then a pretty thin, dry, coffee-flavored finish. A real disappointment after that first whiff.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured dark brown with a medium brown head. Big coffee in the aroma. Flavor was coffee and earth notes with a thin to moderate body. Way too much carbonation and a somewhat medicinal finish.

itís close to a black pour/tan head from the 12oz bottle from which this juice came. so itís an oatmeal stout with espresso dumped in? that makes more sense. the aromas i got were not really coffee, but more like fresh roasted espresso combined with chocolate covered espresso beans. roasted being the key word, not toasted. i think i could have this in the morning as opposed to coffee though; the taste is close to dead on with the name. espresso stout would be a tad better. truly enjoyable, but i couldnít do too many of these in a row. itís a bit heavy on the tummy. good beer though.
