Thanks so much for the handbottle tpd975!, thanks Greg. Shared with dalekliz, this one goes out to Sayid on lost for its badassness. Porus black with a light brown ring. Nose is sweet, and has a ridiculously strong coffe, and for that wow what a nose. Taste is out of this world coffee, with big sweet bitterness and a wallop of coffee. This is excellent and I’m glad I saved this to share with Liz. According to Liz "this is like Sayid because its sexy, smooth and really dangerous!". Excellent. and I don’t even drink coffee.

had the last remnants out of a keg in additioin to the bottled version at CCB. thanks joey.... pours an almost black with reddish brown edges and medium tan head.... sharp, assertive aroma of coffee beans with semi-sweet chocolate... assertive espresso and roasted coffee flavors intertwined with a sweet stout base and dark chocolate fudge. smooth and tasty.

Draft at the brewery, courtesy Joey & Wayne. Pours just about pitch black, perhaps showing a hint of mahogany at the outer reaches. A thick, spongy, light brown head displays excellent retention, leaving gobs of sticky lace on the glass. The aroma is knock your socks off espresso, roasty as all hell. Being married to a Cuban woman, I am used to this aroma on Sunday mornings, as the little *cafetera* is always brewing up some Cuban Coffee. After the initial blast of espresso, the nose opens up to reveal malted chocolate, scorched caramel, and heaps of earthy hop bitterness. Flavors follow suit, again incredibly roasty and very accurate in interpretation of a Cuban Coffee beer, complete with a lightly acrid finish. I will note, however, that the name implies that there is lactose in the brew, which I was unable to detect. Nearly full on the palate, with a silky mouthfeel and light carbonation, even the body resembles that of a perfectly roasted cup of espresso. This is a really nice brew, especially for those with a penchant for hearty coffee, but I think the addition of some lactose would improve things overall and bring things more in line with both the name of the beer and the sweet stout category.

Tap. Moderate roasty/toasty, bittersweet chocolate and coffee for the malt, light to moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with chocolate milk in the background. Head is small, creamy, tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, moderately acidic and bitter and little sour. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. A nicely textured and well rounded Sweet Stout with some great dark aromas.

On draft at Cigar City. What a great way to start the afternoon. Straight up coffee bean aroma, and flavor. Bitter creamy chocolate after taste. Very smooth and easy to drink, regardless of the weather.

@ New World Brewery in Ybor. pour black with a dark brown head. aroma is heavy on coffee. flavor is sweet, as expected. lots of dark espresso roast, milk and brown sugar. a bit of hop bite on the palate, somewhat oily finish. aside from the sweetness, this is an amazing stout, and a must for any coffee drinkers.
