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. Itís just doing a good job, and thatís fine with me when Iím in the mood for coffee flavors in beer.

Bottle.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this. Pours deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of malt, huge coffee, jalapeno oil. Tastes malty, very oatish, coffeeish, with some chocolate and hops at the finish. More chocolate syrup as it finishes, with tons of coffee all the way down. This one reminded me of Bellís Kalamazoo and Founderís Breakfast Stout, although it wasnít as complex or refined. Still, this one surprised me, and I loved every sip of it. Jeeves, get me another, my good sir!

Nice deep black pour, thin tan head. Big coffee and chocolate aroma, with notes of roast as well. Taste is a big iced coffee, with hints of roast in the middle and a bitter finish. Very coffee forward, but with a nice creamy, oat palate.

DrSilverworm (7958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2011
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.

BMan1113VR (7895) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle thanks to Swalden28. Pours with a small tan head over a dark brown body. Aroma is so much roast it is sick. I hope you like coffee!. Spice fresh ground coffee and coffee been oils. Taste is coffee and nothing more. Fizzish bubbles with a dryish mouthfeel.

on tap @ Radio Maria. Deep copper brown, thin beige head. Rich coffee and roast aroma, hints of ash. Nice, natural rich coffee and roast flavours with underlying cocoa. Dry finish. Tasty.

Ughsmash (7270) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottled. Poured deep, opaque brown with a towering, sticky cap of tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter, dry-roasted espresso beans and a mild complement of dark chocolate with some vanilla and herbal accents.. warmth brought out an interesting lactic notes. The flavor had wet coffee grounds and milk chocolatey sweetness at the core with coffee bitterness and a bit of vanilla surrounding.. this finished poorly with a blend of heavy coffee bitterness and gym socks.. and that finish really stuck. Medium-bodied with sharp notes from the coffee.. this went downhill from the initial impression.

phaleslu (7186) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Draft at Over/Under in St. Louis. Pours a very dark brown color with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by coffee, with notes of roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and toast. Rich and smooth, and light-medium bodied. Roast coffee aftertaste. Sure to please coffee drinkers, and a nice coffee stout overall. Re-Rate: Had some of my wifeís draft at Ei8ht Ball. This is a nice coffee stout. Smells great, drinks really easy.

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2009
courtesy of sirpsycho. Pours deep ruby brown with brown head. Aroma of torrefied coffee, light mocha and malts. Taste roasted malts, light coffee with a light bitter finish. The overall taste does as some have mentioned remind me of some stale weak coffee. I got the mouthfeel of the next morning coffee that sat in a cup all night. Not bad, drinkable, but a little too light.
