lighter body to black cola looking brew with fleeting brown hues and beery finish like a nice malty lager pils. plus dark burnt caramel butterscotch. the alcohol, the layered coffee flavor with a slight warming and roasty effect with sweet coffee finish like with a touch of evaporated milk. this coffee stout is the real deal. kind of a dead malt aroma though.

(12oz bottle) medium light brown, fine tan creamy head. Nose of raisin, coffee, cream, not very complex. Taste of old acidic coffee, roasty, creamy, hoppy/bitter linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled December 10, 2012.
Appearance: This pours dark and it shows in the body, no light goes through except the thinnest of edges. The head is thin and tan and short lived. It settles into a light coating with a foamy ring.
Aroma: Roasted coffee and cocoa come to mind, slight earthiness to it. Great strength, good aroma.
Taste: From the aroma I was expecting more flavor, but itís a bit restrained in comparison. The flavor is a bit bitter coffee and dark chocolate, but itís unremarkable. Easy to drink though and a lingering coffee.
Palate: Medium to thick with a full chewy body, moderate carbonation.
Overall: The flavor is really lacking after the aroma, which is a shame as the aroma is excellent. I think this is a decent beer, but it needs some re-working in the flavor for me to love it.

February 13, 2013 - on tap at Royale. Dark brown pour with nice amount of head and lacing. Strong coffee and roasted malt aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma maybe chocolate in there as well, but a deep rich coffee almost espresso flavor. Medium to full body and relatively smooth.

Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Light bodied and well carbed, this is not engine oil; imperial stout freaks will be disappointed. But coffee freaks like me will like the drinkability and robust roastiness of the coffee, with a lingering oatiness in the finish. Not quite on the same level as lagunitas cappuccino stout, but for the price iím not sure itís beatable. Good stuff from schlafly.

I havenít had a coffee stout that tastes more like coffee. Strangely, I think that was the problem with this one. If I want a heavy coffee, Iíll drink that. Sometimes its better to have a hint of the flavor, as opposed to being overwhelmed by it.

33 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub. Rated on 19.02.2010
Aroma has coffee, some truffles and dark chocolate. Flavour has mocha, some dark chocolate, licorice and hints of cocoa. Feels a bit thin but I like the strong coffee aromas here.

Pours black with 1 finger of foam that recedes. You can smell the coffee from pouring the bottle, rich expresso and roasted malt. The taste is the same as it smells, and nice and dry but thin and could use some sweetness for my palate.
