3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Prairie tulip -- Aroma imo is the most impressive part of this beer. Great espresso nose with a little malt sweetness backdropping it. Taste is silky very light roast and the roast capping off the back end highlighted by espresso. Overall, I would enjoy having this as a Saturday morning "start the day beer", as long as driving or operating heavy machinery isnít involved.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with brother....as much as we could stomach before the drainpour. Aroma is old coffee grinds in a used filter and some tobacco. Pours deep black brown with a nice brown head. Taste is dull cardboardy malt, some licorice, old coffee, and a rotten roast finish. Couldnít muster through.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at Twisted Pine. Appearance: some tan head, black color, great lace. Aroma: coffee can not be overstated, roast, light chocolate undertones. Palate: oily texture, full body, lasting bitter finish. Taste: tastes like an espresso shot, canít say much more. Overall, not well balanced, but other than that, well done.

Nice black pour but with a massive think tan head that takes up about 90% of my snifter. Aroma is big dark today roast coffee and grain. Taste is espresso and some green tangy hops. Quite watery, body is thin.

Nice roasted coffee aroma. The flavor has the coffee and a nice bit of chocolate. Slightly sweet with a nice lasting after taste.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of espresso (!) and chocolate, with a slight touch of oak or whiskey. Incredibly light on the palate -- enough to make me check the alcohol content again. Whispery finish. Lots of coffee, of course, and a punch of piney hops to wake up the palate. A bit thin, less creamy.

Bottle. Aroma is toasted malts and grain with subtle coffee. Taste is dark roasted coffee and almost burnt malts. Body is a clean black, full across the palate and long coffee finish. This would be a solid stout by itself but the coffee adds to the experience in a well balanced way. It still has that old style stout charm too. Great beer.
