3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear garnet color with a large, creamy tan head. The nose is a heavy aroma of wet coffee grounds and molasses. Medium-bodied and slick with a slightly astringent finish, this one tastes as advertised. Flavor is essentially cold, carbonated, black, French roast coffee with a slight malty sweetness. If you like iced coffees, you may love this one, if not... why the heck would you buy a "coffee stout"? It’s a decent beer, but it almost has more coffee to it than it does beer.

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. It’s thinner than what I expect from a stout. This may be due to the coffee that’s 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. it’s much better on draught. I didn’t detect the taste of iced coffee, or I wouldn’t have liked it.
