on tap at the brewery, holy crap this has a strong espresso flavor. Pretty overwhelming. The base beer is extra roasty which makes it pretty good.

The aroma is brilliant with pungent espresso that pierces the sinus cavity. It pours black with a light brown head and it leaves lacing. Nice roasted notes on the tongue but it’s very watery and use lose the taste on the swallow. Too Bad!

nice coffee stout from willimantic, thanks brian! black but not oil black, taste is like other coffee stouts, but nothing too crazy which is a nice change of pace, usually these can get out of control. easy to drink, bitter, some chocolate notes as well.

On tap. Pours very dark brown with a little head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong of coffee, and a little resin. Flavor strong of coffee but a little resin/tin on the finish. Sort of thin for this style of beer. Pretty good.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
On cask at the brewery. Pours black with no head. Aroma of vanilla and espresso. Flavor of charred malt, sweet vanilla, roasted nuts, and tons of espresso. I really enjoyed the flavor of the beer, but the light carbonation didn’t sit right with me for this beer. 7/4/8/3/14 (3.6/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Cask at the brewery. Aroma heavily roasted (perhaps even charred) coffee, nuts, emphasis seemingly more on the roastiness than the espresso itself. Flavor brings more of a lovely coffee bitterness to go along with all the roastiness, surely also contributing to the bitterness. Smooth, smooth smooth, light but adequate carbonation from the cask. Nice one.

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2009
A deep black stout with no head. A very pleasant coffee aroma, roasted, bitter chocolate, very classy. In mouth, a roasted chocolate malt, with light burned notes, nice bitterness, a bit light but very nice. On tap at brewpub, Inbièrenationale IV, May 2007.

Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Tastes malty with lots of espresso, dark chocolate and some dark fruit. Enjoyable.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Thanks to Aaron for this one. Black body, tall thick creamy tan head forms but fades quickly. Aroma has lots of coffee roasts and a bit of sweet licorice. Flavors of chocolate and coffee. Light, thin body.

Growler, courtesy of argo0’s sister-in-law. Thanks, Suzy-pants! Pours a very dark, chocolate-brown color; enormous medium tan head, filling the glass; great retention and lacing coating the glass. Lots of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and toasted malts in the aroma; soft coffee. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy roasted coffee notes, roasted malts, and nougat; some lively citrus at the edges, and some acidity from the coffee; pretty drinkable stuff. Medium finish: toasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee.
