3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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
33 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub. Rated on 19.02.2010
Aroma has coffee, some truffles and dark chocolate. Flavour has mocha, some dark chocolate, licorice and hints of cocoa. Feels a bit thin but I like the strong coffee aromas here.

"i donít know anything about the "cold toddy method" but the coffee presence in this beer was super-fresh, almost like chewing on a fresh picked bean. definitely at the fore-front. another one that covered up the beeryness of the beer, but not in a bad way. smooth texture, medium bodied. some light roast and chocolate and hops to accompnay the coffee. Another nice beer from Lou!"

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, nice black coffee, decent bitterness, dark chocolate, very mild caramel, with an earthy finish. My only complaint is that the body is thin for a stout.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz. Thanks, Theisti! Pours opaque black with a sudsy, tallish tan head that falls quickly to film. Minimal lace. Sour, chalky, heavily coffee-ish nose. Watery, nearly still, very coffee-forward on the attack. Light mid-palate and virtually absent finish. Pleasant but a bit of an unbalanced coffee bomb.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Hop in the City: Very dark brown hue witrh good head and okay lace. Starbucks Mocha coffee aroma is noticeable. Nose hints of sharp hop twang, fleshy fruit, oatmeal, and leather. The taste starts bittersweet chocolate and expresso, then detected some aromatic and grassy hops. Very bitter and dry finish. Creamy and lively mouthfeel. Damn, this is a great coffee versus oatmeal stout. Recommended to anyone who like coffee based stouts.
