12oz - bottle says Oct 13, 2005 - Aroma is mocha, hops, and roasted dark malts. Pours black with medium quickly fading brown head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is bubbly and creamy. An easy drinking coffee stout, but it comes off a bit thin in the flavor department.

A bit overpowering almost a leafy flavor left on the palate. Maybe just wasn’t what I was expecting.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Draft - served a bit too cold. This hindered the aroma and flavor a bit and I was not patient enough to let it warm. A bit of coffee in the nose, but not quite as expected. Some chocolate as well. More brown than black and slightly transluscent - kind of odd for a stout. Flavor was good. Chocolately and a touch of coffee. A bit thin for a stout. Good, but not their best.

Good coffee flavor, but it doesn’t overpower the essentials. The sweet chocolate taste lingers along with the coffee and just a hint of bitter and the end. Smooth and warming. A good full taste and appropriately moderated carbonation.

Pours a fizzy red black with a huge tan head. Huge coffee taste, but light mouthfeel. Almost a ground coffee texture to it as well, with a lingering mocha taste. Very good, but could be slightly better balanced.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown color with a glimpse of mahogany when held to the light. Tall bubbly light tan head that leave a vale of lace. Mildly acidic black coffee aromas, there is a touch of sugar and dark cocoa in the background as well. Lightly sweet in the start with a kick of roasted coffee following. I find this one much smoother than most coffee stouts. A light soda cracker and roasted malt finish and a mild coffee linger.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Thanks Kevin! Nov 2, 2005 bottle. The beer pours to a weird brown body with a thin tan head. The aroma smells like freshly ground coffee beans that have yet to be used to make coffee. The flavor is a light coffee and light sugars. Kinda boring flavor. Light and boring mouthfeel. Not creamy, or full, or sweet, or anything. Too weak.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Clear brown body, thin white bubbly head. Earthy, woody aroma with dry coffee bean and a hint of peachy fruit. The flavor thins out with dry coffee bean fiber, strawberry, light chocolate malt. An uninspried coffee stout.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Nice dark color with a thin tan head. Wonderful roasty coffee aroma. Flavor is not too bad, obviously coffee flavor, kind of mild (I was hoping it would have been a little stronger). Kind of a light body, with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, this is pretty good.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Cola mahoganey color, thin soapy light tan head. Smells like coffee. And by coffee, I mean average, fresh-brewed coffee. Further inspection yields creamy sugar (heh). Roasty sweet malt addition. Tastes like a weak dry stout with a hint of coffee. Some grass and light sweet biscuits. Well rounded flavor.
