4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by Bri and Courtney, huge thanks for cracking this awesome coffee brew. Poured jet black with thin beige head. Very lasting foam with great lacing. Aromas are tons of earthy pepper, green coffee, espresso, milk chocolate, and roast. Flavor is about the same with lots of mocha and green vegetable notes. Creamy mouthfeel with medium body. One of the best coffee beers I have tried so far. Reminded me of cubano espresso from cigar city but more coffee and balance.

12oz bottle. Dark brown with a generous mocha head that eventually fades to a thin layer. A very nice coffee and light lactose aroma with roasted malts, some bittersweet chocolate, hints of walnut. Moderate body and carbonation, smooth and easy to drink, a bit of booze and more lactose develops on the palate as things dry out, more coffee on the finish as well - yummy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a tan head. Big nose of espresso, cocoa and Sugar. Flavor is much the same. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is bitter but not as much as you would think in this style. A little sticky on the lips. The coffee is center stage here. If your not into coffee stouts, this is probably not for you. I personally think this is really good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Undated bottle, drunk 11/28/15. Opaque, no head, black. Heavy coffee. Roast. Dark chocolate. Vanilla. But mostly dark, thick coffee. In the mouth the coffee is bitter, ashy, and slightly putrid. Syrupy, too sweet. Can we forget the Creme series ever happened....

12 oz. can shared by Willrunforbeer. Pitch black , no head. Oily viscosity as the stout is swirled around the glass. Aroma is old coffee bean, chocolate and sugar.
The flavor is pretty good, coffee bean that leans more on a coffee drink from Starbucks. Carbonation level is more mild with the slick oily texture I saw as I swirled the glass. Tastes good.

Man, smells like stale espresso or coffee beans. Flavor is super acidic coffee that lingers in my mouth. Dark pour. No head. This sucks.

Large sample board of fairly dark brown liquid with Amber edges. Little to no head with what I had appeared, dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of chocolate and caramels with loads of espresso beans... Sweeter than I would’ve expected but still really fantastic and easy drinking. Minimal alcohol notes are present, with more residual sugar then I would’ve planned. Still enjoyable however.
