Pours very dark amber brown with a light off white head. Aroma of sweetness and roasted malts.Taste is very light bodied with a strong flavor of coffee with subtle hints of roasts and hops in the background. Just okay for a stout IMO brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014

A: Pitch black with a thin creme ring.
N: Coffee, cocoa, char, malt. Vanilla.
T: Coffee bitterness and a good overarching sweetness.
M: Medium body, touch slick.

A bit of coffee on the nose and light espresso in flavor. Crisp. Light going down, but heavy on the tongue after.

Blind Tiger, NYC tap: Pours black with a small head. Aroma is coffee grounds, some chocolate, and roasty malts. I found the body to be too light. The coffee grounds taste was too strong and lacked the sort of nice aromatic coffee flavors I like. I was not impressed by this. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2014

Bottle. Dark black pour, nice bit of tan head. Aroma - lots of coffee, roasted malts very straightforward. Taste - medium thick mouthfeel, some hops, coffee bitterness, roasted malts, extremely well balanced, lots of stout but the coffee doesn’t dominate. Nice one!
