I really need to learn to read labels. I thought this was some sort of hippie style beer. After drinking most of the beer (and not enjoying it), I re-read the label and figured out that it says - Espresso in the name. I hate coffee & this is definitely coffee flavoured.

A good coffee-infused stout is hard to come by, but this is the best one I have had. It has a good dark roasted flavor that warms the belly. It’s not something I could drink a lot of at once, but it is something I could relax with in the armchair.

12 oz pour. lots of carbonation initially, poured extra frothy tan head. Dark brown liquid. Toasty aroma with a hint of chocolate and coffee with taste to match. A little thin and not as flavorful as one would expect of the style. It is not Bad, but Considering how much I like other stouts, this one is just plain disappointing.

Draft. Pours dark with carmel head. The aroma is a mix of malt and some coffee notes. The taste is much thinner than I was expecting. Not a lot of flavor in my opinion. Very average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice malty and toasty aroma, with a hint of mocha. Appearance is very dark, zero light gets through while in a pint glass, with a nice tan head. The flavor is slightly sweet, with cocoa and milk, some toastyness lingers to balance the sweetness towards the finish.

12oz bottle from Beer Baron. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Body is a little thin, but I don’t think this is that bad. Don’t get all of the poor ratings.

Pitch black pour with half inch tan foam head. Sweet smell, like cola syrup. Thin mouth feel, and slightly carbonated. Predominantly Malty flavor, tastes similar to root beer but more sour. Sour dry aftertaste. The bottle I had may be too old. Look forward to re-rating when it’s on tap next year.

Bottle- Pours a somewhat thin, dark glass. Small head of light tan froth. Cannot easily smell the coffee, must take a big whiff to get much smell at all. Tastes of watery coffee with a hint of hoppy sour. Pretty disappointing.

Draft. Thick balck, opaque, nice tan head. Creamy and full body. Coffee is prevalent. Very good all around.

beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2011
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours more like a cola than a beer with a black body and a head that fizzed away in seconds. Pleasant aroma of coffee with notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is coffee with a bit of cardboard and tobacco. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.
