A good stout, if not as good as I might have expected. Nice head, though little carbonation. Slightly bitter, slighty oily mouthfeel, fairly smooth and not strongly flavored.

Lovely beer. Great coffee flavor, not as bitter as i thought it would be. Definitely one i will drink again.

I tried this beer expecting it to be unexciting because of all the below reviews, but I turned out loving the stuff. Great coffee taste that was nicely pronounced and not overpowering. Great stout, really enjoyed it.

Not bad, strong smoked chicory flavor, reminiscent of a rauchbier. Coffe flavors are less pronounced, but this is certainly a unique stout.

black with a thin beige head. very dry and hoppy for a stout. lot of coffee taste but not sure if the chicory adds anything distinctive. loses points for a rather oily texture.

Even though this is a coffee stout, it tastes a bit thin and has a watery palate. The coffee taste is muted, instead of being full as a coffee stout should be. Oh well, you cant have a winner every time.

Good, but too bitter and nothing all that special going on, a quality stout but nothing that even suggests greatness

3.5
muzzlehatch (4952) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2002
Bottled. Very thin, quick-dying head; totally black, opaque body. Aroma on the lightish side, sweet and malty, just a hint of coffee. Flavor nice, but I wonder if all of the weird flavorings are cancelling each other out to some extent; its good, but hard to point out a lot of specific character traits. A bit of coffee, a bit of sweetness, perhaps too much carbonation, and a body just a bit on the thin side. Sounds better than it was, but still an interesting attempt from one of the countrys most inventive brewers.

Thin-palated like a dry-stout, IMO. Had very high hopes here...many folks say the Shelter Pale Ale from these guys is the lesser ware, but Id put it here. I like the bark, but Im not getting enough hop aroma or flavor, and I think the baseline roasted malt is muddled by the other ingredients. But, still, even so, I have to say, if my misfires were of this quality, Id quit my day job and become a brewer.

I guess not. Lots of different bitters in here - coffee, yup, but also some more barkish, woody bitters, and hops. The bitters provide some action in an otherwise thinnish brew leaning longingly toward creaminess. Its long and dry and ultimately almost unpleasant, from where I sit. Just when I think Im going to get those sweetish undertones Delbomber noted, that backswing of a burnt birchbark broom sweeps them away.
