3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

it’s close to a black pour/tan head from the 12oz bottle from which this juice came. so it’s 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 couldn’t do too many of these in a row. it’s a bit heavy on the tummy. good beer though.

From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Liqour Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - This one poured a black brew that smeeled like, well, coffee and possesed a tall brown head of foam. Tastewise, it was coffee nearly all the way with some malt sweetness at the end.

Black, with a thin tan head. Huge coffee aroma, as one might expect. Hint of burnt toast, as well. Coffee dominates the flavor, but notes of burnt toast and dark chocolate sneak in as well. Tasty.

Aroma is not only coffee, but GOOD coffee. Black with a frothy head just makes it look appetizing. No off flavors; exactly like advertized...coffee, malty, with a creamy finish. Extremely well made.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Bottle from jgd0608. Black as black can be with small fizzy tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and blck coffee. Nice bitter coffee flavor as well as good malt backbone. Good body as it is not gonna be too thick since it’s a regular stout. Leaves a strong coffee flavor in your mouth that’s for sure.

Pours a dark black color with a light brown head. Aroma is of dark malts, raisins, and roasted coffee. Flavor is dominated buy bitter roasted coffee with some malts backing it up. Kind of thin on the mouth feel.
