On tap at Red Robin near Hersheypark. Black with creamy off white head that has good retention, and leaves plenty of lacing. Nose of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is unmistakably coffee...along with some roasted malts, some bitter hops and a touch of alcohol. An excellent coffee stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dense black body with red highlights and a think brown head that had some retention and no lace. Aroma had coffee, chocolate and roasted malts an additional hint of coffee to it, some leather notes. Flavor was good. A nice balance of roasted malts and bitter coffee seemed to complement the semi-sweet chocolate. Great balance to this beer. Full mouthfeel. Finish was long and smooth.

12 oz bottle. Opaque black pour with thin moka head. Aroma of coffee, rich chocolatey malts, malty molasses aroma. Flavor of bitter coffee, strong coffee burst. A tad boozy, full bodied, almost Imperial stout. Good.

This one of my wife’s favorite beers. Even though this one is readily available in almost any beer store in the area, I got this sixer from the brewery in Harrisburg last week.
Ap: Dark, dark brown, with absolutely no head.
Ar: I know the brewery website says that the coffee is very subtle, but that is really all I’m smelling right now. Because the name is what it is, that is not a bad thing.
T: I detect Troeg’s hop profile right away. Ahhh! I love the coffee taste. We’re not talking Maxwell House here, but something very special. Despite the brewery stating that they used Kenyan coffee beans (from a local coffee house) with "roasted espresso." I’m surprised at how non-roasty it actually is. I taste more cocoa-like flavor. Also, the cascade really bumps you at the end. Nice!
P: Here is where the oats kick in! Very thick, almost slimy texture. That may not be some people’s thing, but I dig it!
O: 7.5 ABV? I didn’t even notice. I like the flavor, texture, and just about everything about this beer. I’ll buy this again!

Great beer. This is a coffee stout in which the hops were appropriate and appreciated. Nice lacing and a long head retention. Dark Brown with some amber clarity, but very little. Phenols and coffee up front with malt and vanilla then a hop grasp on the tongue. Balances the beer and gives you a lot to do. Three beers per sip. ABV is not overboard and you can have a second beer if a long session.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A black beer with a reddish tinge and a tan head. The aroma is heavy coffee, but also fruity with anise. The flavor is straight on coffee and chocolate.
