Pours a transparent dark brown with a thin off-white head. Heavy mocha coffee aroma has some toasted malt underneath. Body starts with a sweet sticky toffee flavor and some coffee bean balance with a lingering earthy roastiness. A nice stout.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oct 06 bottling. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/husks, stale coffee), with notes of twigs, vegetation, ashtray. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Really disappointing aroma after trying the oatmeal stout, which is apparently the base beer for this...husky, poor coffee character, vegetal. More acidic than the oatmeal stout as well. Eh.

Bottle pours dark brown, large light beige foamy head, with attractive lacing. Damn, very sharp ground coffee on the nose. Amazingly close to actual coffee. Damn, very minor roasted malt flavor with a big heap o’ coffee. Unfortunately the body and mouthfeel on this one is very very thin. Detecting a bit of cream and sugar tho! Coffee lovers will probably really enjoy this beer, but otherwise it doesn’t seem to have much behind the coffee. Glad to be able to try it tho. Thanks goes out to beerhandy for the trade! Damn...
