Prufrockstar (924) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft at ToronadoN. Pours like chocolate coal with fine bubbled khaki head. Cheap diner coffee, loads of chocolate. Chocolate donuts, in fact. No sprinkles. Sweet with lasting chocolate-coffee finish. Makes my stomach hurt.

Draft pour at the Toronado Seattle opening. Pours a near black with a super roast coffee bean aroma. Just when I think I have had the "coffee - ist" beer, I try this one and it shuts the other ones up. Mostly roasted coffee bean flavors with a touch of mocha chocolate. Long roasted palate. Overall, I’m quite impressed. Good beer here.

On tap at the source. Never would have said a brown for style - has everything one would want in a "coffee" stout. Huge roast nose, with chocolate & caramel, and some light nuttiness. Taste is more bitter espresso, with a nice sweeter chocolate/caramel blend. Rich with a lot of body. Finishes strong and roasty bitter, but with balance back. This was excellent!

Dogbrick (8025) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear dark brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet cocoa, coffee and roast malt. The finish is sweet with a vanilla mocha aftertaste. Good beer all around.

On tap at Surly. Pours a clear dark brown with a half inch of head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is ... Chocolate milk. Exactly. Flavor is mild version of same with moderate carbonation and medium body. A delicious beer, and I would have again in a heartbeat.

radagast83 (4575) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
4oz draft at ChurchKey during the SAVOR Surly event. Poured a dark brown color with a nice light tan head. Aroma was like cold-pressed coffee, lots of roast - dark chocolate notes. Flavor was like a cold hot-chocolate had been lightly poured into a nice cold coffee. Light vanilla bean. Very pleasant and enjoyable.

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Tap. Fluffy two fingers of an eggshell head, deep dark brown. Lots of coffee, burnt toast, dark chocolate, and vanilla in the aroma. Damn tasty, chocolate, roast, smooth vanilla easing into a milkshake finish. Lighter smooth slick body .
