Tap at Blind Tiger. Dark brown with a bit of tan head. Nice espresso aroma with some roasted malt. Dry, more coffee and espresso taste. Light coffee bitterness on the finish. Flavorful and enjoyable. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a tulip. Appearan is near black with a mocha head and some slight lacing. Nose brings espresso, coffee, and then some espresso. A touch of roast in there separate from the coffee. Taste is more coffee. Feel is nice and roasty with a good body. Another very tasty coffee stout.

Draft at the Gingerman. Pours black. Off white head. Nose and taste of sweet malts, roast espresso bean and vanilla. deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Poured near black with a brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma was a nice combination of roasted malts, dark grains and espresso beans. Flavor was similarly balanced with roasted malts and dark grains starting and joined by a nice espresso note.

Tap at the brewery. Pours out black with a small white head. Aroma is of roast, coffee and some vanilla. Silky smooth mouthfeel with some notes of chocolate, roast and light vanilla, and of course a bunch of coffee notes. A solid, drinkable stout. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Tap at Blind Tiger. Dark brown, thin cream head. Nose of old grinds coffee, bit of allspice. Flavor is sweeter, milk chocolate cuts coffee harshness. Sticky body, harsh in finish. Very standard stuff. Slipstream (2625) - USA - JAN 23, 2011
UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 Black pour, with some lace on the glass (at The Bronx Ale House). The flavor is mostly dry, with some acidity, and not too heavy on the coffee. Had it again at the brewery, and this time the coffee came thru more clearly. A good, dry, malty brew. jredmond (8284) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2011
