Bottle, thnx to hopscotch. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malts and molasses. Flavor is coffee, sweet dark malts and it sure does honor to its name. Lots of coffee in there, sweet background. Long, light bitter aftertaste. Nice one.

Like drinking iced coffee. Only thing comparable is Founders Breakfast Stout and that is a different style. :)

Bottle. Dark brown pour that you can see through with ruby highlights. Decent head and lacing. Aroma is a strong coffee smell. A little funky. Taste is of light roasted coffee with hops noticeable in background. Very thin mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear dark brown with a medium dark beige head.
Fresh coffee nose, with some dark chocolate and earthy hops.
Flavor is the same, with grassy notes, coffee dryness, medium bitterness, roasted malts and faint milk chocolate.
Medium bodied, a bit too lively, lacks some depth but quite OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance of a bowling ball; deep brown-black. The head is short-lived but it leaves quite a ring of lace on the glass.
The aroma is dry coffee grounds, and that’s about it. There is a hint of some dry mocha type stuff, but it’s very slight. Not unpleasant, just a little weak. A mild sugary sweetness, and a nutty quality as it warms up.
The taste is cold coffee (no surprise), with an ashy kind of flavor. Grainy and nutty both. You can taste the "brownness" in the malts. Slightly rounded at the edges, but mostly a sharp coffee ground bitterness.
Full-bodied, chewy and buttery on the palate. I have no beef with it at all, it just isn’t as complex as I had hoped.

On tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey. Pours a medium brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is all coffee. Flavor follows. Mild carbonation. Not much maltiness at all. Nice medium bodied beer.

Pours a beautiful dark black.
I had this beer on tap off a Randall filled with espresso beans. Absolutely delicious and changes the flavor charactistics of the beer. With the espresso beans this beer is a little sweeter and has a strong coffee kick. Pours a deep black with a strong expresso scent.

Pours black with off white head. Nice rich coffee aroma. Grainy oatmeal malty texture. Good fresh coffee flavor. Fairly medium easy to drink body. Straightforward good coffee stout.

Hey wonderful coffee aroma. A deep Ebony color, very clear. A nice coffee taste to a medium bodied stout. Lite bitter finish. We have a winner!
