Light smell of coffee. Some roast, texture a little on watery side. Mind you this is after going through the menu at Blue Jacket. Finishes with light sweetness. Some club I wandered into out of vague interest on u street.

Sweet with strong roasty coffee flavors, sweet roasted barley, and a slight metally tartness.

Aromas of fresh roasted coffee beans, subtle chocolate. Black with a mostly lasting light tan head. Coffee flavors dominate, some nutty characteristics, light caramel, light chocolate. Medium bodied, very refreshing.

Bottle from Grape@Gourmet. Pours dark black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is fairly standard roasty espresso, dark chocolate, touch of ashtray. Flavor follows, medium initial sweetness overtaken by assertive coffee bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty decent beer!

Bottle. Overall a non thrilling stout that was a little thin and over carbonated. Some coffee but not as much as I expected. Just okay

Poured a taster at the local shop. Pours a dark brown, tan head. Aroma is typical stout, but there’s a real aroma of fine coffee in here. Taste is nice and you can really taste the high quality coffee in here, but it’s not overpowering or too bitter. Very nice.

Bottle as an awesome extra in trade. Thanks! First Virginia rate pours black with a small light brown or off white head. Huge coffee aroma just like a cup o' joe, some lactose like sweetness, a little cocoa, roasted malts. Mmmm. Flavor is very espresso forward, some lactose sweetness to balance out the super earthy bitter coffee, light chocolate and roast. This is sweet but nicely integrated with the earthy espresso. Loving the coffee and lactose sugar combo. Medium mouthfeel on the thinner side (not a knock, as this isn't an impy--plus I burned the shit out of my mouth today so it may be the carbonation on the burns that make it feel thinner as it is super smooth and rich on my lips and given the low ABV this has a nice body going on) with a nice velvety mouthfeel. There is some nice prickly carbonation on this.

Tried this stout at the same time that I was introduced to the Founders Breakfast Stout. Unfortunately it paled in comparison. Poured from tap into a snifter, this stout by WA provided an incredible coffee and chocolate aroma, however, the taste and mouthfeel were unable to match. Body was much too light resulting in the coffee and chocolate tones to seem watered down. This brew would benefit from a higher ABV and thicker body.

Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown stout with a slight head. The aroma is of coffee and the taste is strong bitter coffee that lingers on the pslate

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 On tap at the brewery, great black pour with a great coffee aroma and bitter coffee with a sweet finish
