Bottled, thanks beerhandy! Near black with small beige head. Coffee aroma. Sweet and very roasty. Surprisingly it feels more malty and rounded than the Oatmeal Stout. Salty, tarry finish. The coffee has done this beer good!

Bottled (brewed 11/2005)
Dark brown/ruby color, small tan head. Aroma of toasted coffee and light hops, like sniffing fresh coffee beans. Dark toasted coffee dominates the flavor. Palate is quite thin, a bit too simple with just coffee beans and not much anything else - but very drinkable as such. Aftertaste fades away quickly.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Bottle (HBF2009)
Black, brief head. Coffee grounds aroma. Pleasant carbonation. Coffee dominates the taste. Can’t judge the beer in the drink because it’s hidden by the coffee. The combination’s a fairly OK drink though. So, mixing a beer with a coffee - how wonderfully original and skillful. Next ...
