UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Bottle (HBF2009)
Black, brief head. Coffee grounds aroma. Pleasant carbonation. Coffee dominates the taste. Canít judge the beer in the drink because itís hidden by the coffee. The combinationís a fairly OK drink though. So, mixing a beer with a coffee - how wonderfully original and skillful. Next ...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewpub. This beer is a nearly opaque dark brown color with ruby on the fringes. Thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates quickly, and spotty lacing. Aroma of coffee, oatmeal and roasted malt. Medium, smooth body with coffee, roasted barley and malt flavors. The finish is nutty with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is a nice, deep ruby with a healthy mocha head. Semi sheety lace. Aroma is light hotel coffee but fairly muted. Taste is hotel coffee, very one-dimensional. Watery palate. Nothing offensive here but just super weak sauce at 5.7% for stout. At least itís not sugar sweet or syrupy. Pretty neutral and inoffensive.

12oz bottle. Very dark brown near-black color, thin tan head. Smooth carbonation and texture. Hearty, like an oatmeal stout should be... Great aftertaste, very different! Excellent coffee aroma, totally authentic and spot-on. This is clearly the real deal. Awesome roasty bitter taste, that really lasts... A great-tasting brew.
