UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 At tap House in Des Plaines. Pretty good stuff very smooth, coffee and licorice flavors come through but thankfully the licorice is somewhat mild. Not sure what taste Im looking for with St Johns wort. Serving: Tap

From a bottle into a shaker. Pours dark with thin creamy tan head. Strong coffee notes balanced with mellow caramel sweetness. Similar flavor profile with a nutty chicory finish ... A very good coffee stout.

Kita (1982) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled, 0.355l, shared with CanCrusher. Pours almost black with thin creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Taste starts with sweet and sour liquorice / chicory, follows by sweet chocolate and strong coffee, while finish is light herbal hoppy. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Very interesting stout...

Barreras (1625) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a black color with a coffee aroma. Taste has a slight hickory wood chip taste mixed with rich rosated coffee. A simple flavored stout that dissipates quckly but lingers on the palate. A smooth beer that was enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Roasty aroma. Flavor of roast and dark coffee. Palate is pretty light for a stout, but I guess that makes sense at only 5.2%. Just picked up this four pack in the last month, but see that it has a 2012 date on it. That probably doesnt help a light beer like this one. Still though it is a nice beer. If there is such thing as a session stout then I guess this would qualify. Its a nice option. Certainly could drink a couple of these without any aftereffects.

Bottled 2011: E20:50 Pours a dark brown with a transient finger of tan head. This falls to a scattering of surface bubbles. I can smell the chicory and coffee quickly backed up with a sweet and dark malt backbone providing the slightest milk chocolate note. Nice nose. A fairly dry and sweet stout with a meaty flavor in there. The coffee is present, but subdued. The mouthfeel is dryly light bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. The aromas on this brew are the primary things going for it. The flavor is a far cry from the smells and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. I would drink again, but not likely to go out of my way for it. Serving type: bottle 01-20-2012
