ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown ruby color with a creamy brown chocolate head. The nose was of deep espresso, chocolate, bitter hop and malt. Taste was predominately the espresso and the soft bitter hops. Medium body with medium carbonation.

Bière noire qui voudrait bien avoir une mousse, mais celle-ci disparaît en un souffle court. Ça sent, en effet, le café, le grain grillé, la torréfaction avec une pointe aigrelette qui traîne de la patte. Goût chocolaté, amer, avec des saveurs de café noir. Une minéralité qui veut qu’on la remarque. Un bel exercice de style qui ne révolutionne pas le genre. Une texture légèrement aqueuse nous tire le bras. (Embouteillé le 18 janvier 2013) (738-130713)

dark water brown. Deep coffee nose. Taste good but a little watered down. Kind of plain and light.

Johnsense (858) - - AUG 3, 2013
Dark pour, small head. Coffee bean and roasted malt aroma. The coffee takes a back seat when im drinking this, which is too bad because i enjoy a nice coffee forward stout. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, with coffee beans in the background. Medium to thicker body.

My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee beans and their charred edges are surrounded by tiramisu sweetness and chocolate in this agreeable Coffee Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the darkness.
-The finish is also a touch acidic.
-Carbonation is a bit too prickly for my liking in this type of dessert-like flavor profile.
-This is not trying to reinvent the style. It’s just doing a good job, and that’s fine with me when I’m in the mood for coffee flavors in beer.

Bottle.

Un liquide embouteillé avec amour le 01-18-13. Merci Patrick. Sous le nom de Coffee Stout. Une bière brune avec une mousse mince. Un nez de lait au chocolat avec du café ou du café froid su chocolat. La bouche est mince à la limite de l’aqueux. Les saveurs diluées sont de chocolat et de café froid. Une bière qui ressemble à un fond de thermos de café au lait le lendemain d’une brosse.

SlovakSniper (3371) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
Une bouteille née le 18 janvier 2013. Un liquide presque noir et une tête qui résiste à cette chaleur accablante. Des arômes de cendre, de café, de caramel et de noisettes se logent dans mes narines. Des saveurs de café et de grains rôtis s’étendent avec simplicité sur mes papilles. Un corps de faible densité se pointe sur mon palais tandis qu’une texture faiblemement crémeuse semble se construire sur ma langue. Une finale amère comme une fève de café qu’on écrase avec les dents. Bof.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown pour with a small head. Cold coffee grounds and mild chocolate. Not bad.

A very good aroma. Even out of the bottle. A good oatmeal stout flavor. I love the coffee taste! Surprised by this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (1143) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2013
The aroma smells like slightly like not-so-fresh brewed coffee with very little of anything else coming through in the nose, and the appearance is a black color with a small off-white head. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, and the palate combines a bitter finish, full body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.
