Thinner mouth feel, but big flavor, coffee, burnt toast and roasted malt. Chocolate, but more of a deep dark chocolate. the coffee that I’m tasting is definitely Ethiopian. this is a pretty rough beer with a cool mouth feel.

Aroma of coffee takes over everything else and pours black with a small cream head. Taste of coffee shines through strong. Easy to drink and tasty. Nice beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Miccosukee Root Cellar in Tallahassee FL. Pours deeper near black. Medium, rockier coffee head. Webby lacing. Nose is rich coffee and dark chocolate. No off character. Taste is roasty, quite rich, super heavy espresso and dark chocolate. Very good. Rich but drinkable. Lighter palate than its peers with no wateriness. Quite a feat. Much better than first batches I tried a few years ago before they had distribution.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark blackish brown, with a small tan head that dissipates leaving little lacing. Smells of coffee and dark chocolate, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is pretty much that as well, mostly of the malts, very little on the hops or much else. Very smooth for a coffee based stout, but you would it expect it to be a little heavier with a name like that.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 This stout was big and unbalanced - which can be a good thing. If you like the coffee/roasted notes in stouts, then this brew is perfect for you. The aroma was thick and almost smoky with cocoa and coffee notes. The taste was again, very roasted but with a rather light malt undertone. Finished robust, bitter and with a distinct texture that was dry and light.

Draft at CCB. Pour is, of course, black with a tan head. Nose is light chocolate and copious amounts of roast and coffee. The taste is straight up roasted coffee beans. LOTS of roast. If you like coffee stouts, then this one should fit the bill quite nicely. Unfortunately there isn’t much else going on in the flavor but it’s still a nice brew.
