Draft pour into 10 oz snifter. Very roasty with a strong coffee presence. Has a creamy and bold mouthfeel that leaves finish of espresso, roasted barley, and chocolate.

Pours black and thick with a touch of red. Funky pepper aroma mixed in with some cardboard & cream. I can’t get over the very strong pepper aroma. Harsh roasted coffee aroma. Overall, the bottle is from 2010 so it may have oxidized. I’ll have to be fair and seek out a fresh bottle so I can re-rate it. Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing...

Pitch black with a minimal amount of mocha head. Smells of burn, coffee, tar, earthy, molasses. Taste has a slightly bitter taste at first that gives way to a nice chocolate syrup, coffee ground with some char, that ends with some sweet roasted hop with very little bitter. Overall very enjoyable, well balanced. Kudos.

Bottle. The pour is dark with a slight head. The aroma is big with coffee, very nice. The taste is super smooth and big coffee flavor throughout. Leaves a nice coffee aftertaste, but not overly bitter. I was expecting a lot from this beer and it delivered. One of the best everyday coffee stouts out there.

2012 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is fresh ground coffee with a trace of chili powder (maybe just me), some dark fruits and vanilla, some umami as I got to the middle of the glass. The taste is roasted coffee followed by a sweetness like dark fruits and toffee and ending with a tobacco tasting bitterness. Medium-full mouthfeel. Didn't really detect the oatmeal.

Extra from Westmeister-thanks, West! Roast coffee and dark malt nose. Thick and dark...pretty medium for the style. Full mouth feel and nice dark, slightly bitter coffee finish. Solid, but not too complex. Enjoyable coffee stout and body put it above many others in the category.
