Pour is a very dark brown black with a quick thick head which dissapears and leaves a soft film on top. Aroma is strong black coffee very nice, it does smell like Dunn Brothers! (crazy) its so strong that I’m not getting anything else. Taste is rich coffee and malt with a nice hoppy finish, hints of soy as well. Palate is full and fizzy and sticky with an abrupt dry finish. arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours deep brown/black with tan head, aroma is big coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is big coffee, more coffee, and finishing with coffee. Nice mouthfeel, some chocolate, but if you like coffee seek this one out! 13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Growler from Flat Earth brewery. Pitch black pour with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor are big time coffee. Finish keeps your tongue painted with that coffee flavor. I love this beer, it’s a fantastic example of a coffee beer and would be a great way to kick your day off! sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2010

pours dark brown, off-white head with light golden lacing.
aroma of coffee, roasted malts and hints of hops
flavor, roasted malts, mild coffee, dark roast, light and thin palate with a coffee/oat finish.
Nice beer stout for only 5%, coffee is not as forward as expected leaving room for the hops to transpire. sbroome (149) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2010
dark pour with mild head. nose is roast and dark coffee. pretty smooth, almost like an oatmeal. taste is obvious coffee but it’s a bit artificial. as much as i love coffee stouts, this one falls into the like catagory.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 Very dark chocolate brown - almost black - and thoroughly opaque. Dark coffee and bitter chocolate malts in the nose. This tastes about as close to a dark french roast french press coffee in a beer as I’ve tasted yet -- oily, a bit thin, but fantastic flavor. Wonderful carbonation, some lacing. Unique, quite unlike anything else I’ve tried yet. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Tap. Dark brown to black pour. Roasty coffee and chocolate all over the nose and taste, very tasty stuff. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2009
750ml courtesy of skyview – thanks Bob! Pours deep brown almost black with a 2 finger tan head that faded fast. The nose is coffee grounds, charred malt and like cocoa. The taste is sour spent coffee grounds upfront followed by chocolate and dark roast coffee in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. An OK coffee stout. The sourness at upfront throws it off a bit.

Pours a thick black brown with a chocolate colored head. Aroma is like smelling freshly ground coffee with a bean roaster going in the background. Flavor is full city coffee with cashews and almonds. Body is light with quite a bit of carbonation. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2009
