On tap at Fat Head’s PDX, pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out espresso beans upfront and dominating, with a little roast. Flavour is exactly what you’d expect and hope for, with dark roasted espresso beans dominating, not a whole lot else to speak. Nicely constructed, with the bold coffee notes lingering. Very good.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Draft sample. Poured clear dark brown color with an average brown creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate ground coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer would go well with a cigar.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Nitro sample at the brewpub, and a growler from the tower for home. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium thick and foamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Rich body with a strong coffee character along with flavors of dark chocolate and hops. The finish is moderately bitter roasted coffee that lingers awhile. The nitro version had a more muted coffee presence but both were good.

Tap in PDX. Brewed with Caribou coffee? Yeah? Slice of MSP home while in PDX drinking Ohio beer :) it’s a small world after all.
The beer is great. Nice rich coffee aroma and some nice dry coffee notes on taste. Super good. alexsdad06 (11414) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft at Dutch’s shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, coffee, light roast, soft finish, a bit too sweet and not enough coffee pop. Give me their hoppy stuff any day.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2015 Pint on tap at Dutch’s. Near-black color. Thin khaki head. Decent dots and bits of lace, kind of loose. Satisfying big coffee aroma -- mild roast, more on the sweet side. Butterscotch, berry type coffee flavors. Mild milk chocolate. Bigger sweet taste, kind of tingly sweet on the back end, mild bitter. Medium plus body. Kind of slick. Lighter kind of soft crisp carbonation. A decent coffee stout overall, with a satisfying amount of (interesting) coffee flavor, but it’s a bit too sweet for me. I prefer a more dry coffee stout, like Stone’s Coffee Milk Stout. 7/3/6/4/13 JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Update rate, 4/28/15: Few visits to this, on tap at Dutch’s again. Black color, with a thin khaki head, leaving great thick ridges of lace and swaths of lace. The coffee is great in this. Good creme type flavor to it too. A bit sweeter, but not bothering me as much as it seemed to last round. Enjoyable enough to keep me coming back.
Growler shared by Dogbrick. Many thanks for bringing this one back. Black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty coffee, a bit of cream and some chocolate. Coffee flavor with a touch of creaminess and some chocolate before a lasting bitter coffee finish. Solid.
