3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a very dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is big with coffee and some sweet roasted malt. Flavor is big with coffee but it tastes sweet and creamy and less like just black coffee. I drink 3 cups of black coffee every morning and wouldnít mind drinking a few of these at night.

This is their oatmeal stout with cold extracted. Dark amber color. Burnt grain and coffee aroma with a little fig and maybe some cherry. Strong, acrid coffee flavor. Medium bodied. Clean finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours dark brown, large light beige foamy head, with attractive lacing. † Damn, very sharp ground coffee on the nose. † Amazingly close to actual coffee. † Damn, very minor roasted malt flavor with a big heap oí coffee. † Unfortunately the body and mouthfeel on this one is very very thin. † Detecting a bit of cream and sugar tho! † Coffee lovers will probably really enjoy this beer, but otherwise it doesnít seem to have much behind the coffee. † Glad to be able to try it tho. † Thanks goes out to beerhandy for the trade! † Damn...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Excellent brew. Pours so dark with a nice creamy head. Aroma is coffee-heavy with slight burnt smell that lingers. Coffee taste is dominant, with slight alcoholic warmth and darkly toasted malt in the background. This is one of the best put together coffee stouts I have tried.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured very dark with a brownish one finger head and weak lacing. Stale coffee smoky ashtray aroma. Mouthfeel was thin, dry with a quite bitter coffee flavor, and I donít get at all the chocolate that several reviewers mentioned. This be a fine brewer but I can get along without this one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Deep brown and tan head. Coffee nose, some nuttiness, and more coffee, of course. Taste is the same. Heavy mouthfeel, with some tobacco in the dry finish. The coffee is too strong to give this stout any delicacy, and it takes away from any creaminess the stout might have had. Coffee lovers will love it, but beer fans bewarned.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Beerhandy for this. Pours deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of malt, huge coffee, jalapeno oil. Tastes malty, very oatish, coffeeish, with some chocolate and hops at the finish. More chocolate syrup as it finishes, with tons of coffee all the way down. This one reminded me of Bellís Kalamazoo and Founderís Breakfast Stout, although it wasnít as complex or refined. Still, this one surprised me, and I loved every sip of it. Jeeves, get me another, my good sir!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber-black with a nice layer of tan head. Very smooth coffee and roast aromas. Fresh and mighty nice. Bright acidity and smooth roasts in the taste. Even the foam has a nice spicy/sparkly thing going on. The coffee and stout are a spot-on combination, adding lots of depth and complexity. Can this really just be their oatmeal stout with coffee added? Hard to believe. Schlafly Oatmeal Stout is decent, but nothing too noteworthy. This however, is really tasty stuff!

Donít know what I ecpected but should have realized that since I donít drink coffee that I wouldnít like this one much. Just too much coffee for the non-coffee drinker.
