(Nitro at the pub) Nice roasty coffee aroma and flavor; it’s dominant, but tasty. Some malt sweetness... Aftertaste is a little acrid, and has some weird bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a thick, creamy beige head. Tastes like espresso, vegetable, dark roasted chocolate malt, and mild coffee. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dark roasted chocolate malt, espresso, and some coffee.

On tap at Squatters SLC. Poured black, nice tan head. Aroma was coffee, light chocolate. Flavor was bitter coffee, bordering into astringent. Not much else. This wasn’t a bad beer, but after having had many, many very good coffee beers over the years, this one disappointed.

On tap (nitro) at Squatters
Appearance: Dark brown, almost black with a nice dark tan head

A nice beer, but it has a thin mouthfeel compared to what I expected of the aroma

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in SLC. Pours a dark black color with a thick white head. The nose was pure coffee; no complicated or delicate aromas here, just pure Folgers. The taste was similar; a strong and rich coffee, some roasted malts too. A nice creamy and medium thickness body. Quite nice, though I often don’t like coffee infused brews.

Featured cask pint, McCools Pub in Layton. They told me it was "Squatters Cowboy Coffee Stout"; I assume this is the same beer. Black with a small, tries-to-last head. Aroma is coffee and cocoa. Flavor is initially the same, with some added char. But the flavor peters out halfway through due to the thin, watery body washing all the flavor away.

Very fresh right out of vat. Dark coffee pour with strong aroma. Great eggshell head. One of the best espresso stouts I have ever had. Prob because it was so fresh.

Nitro pint at the Brewpub. Pitch black with a wonderfully creamy 1/4-inch head of tan foam. Mocha aroma. Smooth and milky but a bit watery. Decent enough but doesn’t quite live up to the awesome visual and aroma. Almost chocolate milky. (#2790, 4/12/07)
