12 oz. bottle. Wow! My favorite coffee bean and a great beer all rolled into one. Your typical coal black brew with a very thin wispy head that quickly disapates. Aroma is that of coffee, coffee and coffee. Not near as much body as an expediton stout but a nice heavy flavor just the same. Outstanding finish! Not bitter but a somewhat strong after taste of.....coffee. Another great beer from Kalamazoo!!!!!!!

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2009 Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. small bubbles are detected meandering towards the surface. Nose is a blast of coffee, lots of roasted malts. Palate is full velvet and wonderfully textured with a sticky, filmy finish. FLavors are rich coffee notes with a light mocha note as well, the roasted malt notes are there as well.

Aroma of chocolate-covered espresso beans and ALCOHOL coming through like whiskey! Nice rich color and mouthfeel. Well balanced brew with plenty of coffee and chocolate-mint - may actually do better with a bit less coffee so that the malts and other nuances can shine through as well. The alcohol is hidden in the flavor but not the aroma - donít know if Iíve seen this situation before. Not my favorite combination as a caffeine sensitive individual (will I be able to sleep tonight), but a respectable beer nonetheless.

Opaque black brew with a medium brown head.
Good nose of coffee and chocolate as expected.
Sweet and rich flavor, lots of the promised java, and delivered with a good full palate that was creamy and soft. Very satisfying.

Like I assumed, the beer had a wonderful coffee aroma. Deep black pour with a thick fluffy brown head. When I asked my friend how the "mouthfeel" was he said, "My mouthfeel happy." I couldnít agree more. Nice and thick, full flavor. Unlike most coffee stouts, which can taste like day old coffee.

On cask. Dark color, lasting creamy tan head. Dark roasted bitter coffee in aroma and taste. Slight grassy hops present to accentuate the bitterness. Light body with a lasting taste which improves upon each sip.

Nice black color,small but decent long lived tan head that had a good hang time then faded to a nice lace.Nice mlaty aroma with a good coffee side.The taste was better then i was expecting with a good sweet malt side some very nice coffee and a bit of some hops at the end but not to much.over all pretty smooth and malty with the coffee being nicely done.Well worth trying again and again.

Great pour as you get a whopping big tan head. First smell doesnít really give you the idea of the taste that awaits. Fist sip and I am reminded that I like my coffee with a shit load of sugar. Oh well as this one definatley lives up to the java billing.
