Pours black to brown without much head. The aroma is huge coffee. Almost like a coffee chocolate shake. The taste is like bitter iced coffee. Slightly thin but really tasty.

Aroma of roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, and chocolate. Pours a blackish-brown with no head and no lacing. The taste is bitter. Coffee grounds, chocolate, and coke, with a bitter coffee ground finish and lingering aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable bitter stout.

Bottle at Dodgrblu's. Aroma and flavor of iced espresso with some light carbonation. I would take this over an iced mocha from Starbucks any day...then again, I hate coffee. Pretty decent beer tho.

This bottle was send to me courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. From the 22 oz bottle this pours very black, and raised a good sized foamy tan head and left attractive lacing rings. Nose is of coffee and some chocolate. Medium in body with a highly carbonated mouth feel. The flavor is a flavorful coffee, dark chocolate, and a tinge of smoke. Finishes bitter but there is coffee everywhere in this one. Really bitter and one of the better coffee stouts. Excellent.

Opaque black with a thin rim head and tiny swirls of lace. Mild, almost watery, going in; quickly grows into solid bitter black coffee, finishing with the return of slight sweetness that lingers through the finish. A lot of flavor for 6%abv. Recommended.
