The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

A deep and viscous stout with a thin moka head. Strong aroma of Nestle Quick, and cappuccino coffee, fresh cereals, intense and pungeant. In mouth, a silky fruity stout, with coffee grinds, espresso, roasted cereals, smooth and silky, lots going on in mouth in this one. Rich and silky.

Pitch black with a thin a fading tan head. Intense nose of green coffee and milk chocolate. Full body with light carbonation, dominant flavors are green coffe (unroasted) first and finishes on cocoa and a little bit of roasted grains. Persistance of the aftertaste is quite notable. Almost like, as a kid, when I had too much of corn flakes with Quick cocoa milk...

Its 10:45 am and 35 degrees in Boulder, perfect time for a Breakfast Stout. Bottled. Black as oil with creamy milk chocolate head. Aroma is roasted but not burnt, mild coffee, bitter unsweetened chocolate and soft oatmeal/grain. Smells like your house while your mom is baking. Flavor is roasted, salty and lingering light sweetness. Light alcohol burn in the throat, long roasted finish. Texture is lighter than it appears and is oily, medium bodied for an imperial stout.

07 bottle. Pours a thick pitch black with a thick mocha head which lasts. Aroma is all dark chocolate and espresso. Alcohol presence as well. Taste is more dark chocolate and espresso, smoke. Dark dark chocolate bitterness which stays on the tongue in the finish. The best coffee stout next to Kentucky Breakfast Stout.

pours out super thick and black with no light penetration with a thin dark mocha colored head. the aromas are coffee. well.....i also get a good amount of chocolate, roasted malts, carmelized sugar, plum and dark ripe fruits. it is full bodied with an amazing taste in which all the ingredients work in harmony. it is like a symphany on my friggin tongue. i taste the noted coffee, very nice and not overpowering, works really well with the tasted malts. it has a very creamy velvety mouth feel that feels like silk as it slides down the back of my throat. it is a little bitter from the coffee, but not to much from the hops that i can tell. it finishes a little watery and leaves a very soft aftertaste which is very plesent.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 what every other stout wishes it could be. this is an incredible beer. thick, chocolately, coffee, creamy, tasty. UPDATED 9-29-10 .. lowered my rating slightly. this beer just sort of lost its mystique to me. lots of coffee, very thick. i think it needs more booze or something to balance out all that coffee roast.

obguthr (6180) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Deliciously complex and well blended aroma, but not very strong. Coffee, caramel, and vanilla are predominant, but charred oak, raisins, and molasses are also easily detectable. Deep dark brown, slightly viscous pour, headless. The flavor is strongly of espresso with pruny vanilla undertones and a lasting charcoal finish. Nice mouthfeel, medium body, a little light on the carbonation. A tad off balance toward the dry side. A stout lovers wet dream. Pretty freaking awesome!

12 oz. bottle. Dry aroma of roasted coffee with a touch of cream. Pours a dark brown with a moderate amount of relatively dark, grayish-tan head. Produces good lacing. The taste is overly bitter with a sweet, fruity finish. Coffee and alcohol flavors. I dont like coffee, so this doesnt do much for me. It does become more bearable on multiple sips. Burnt, dry aftertaste that is not good. Moderate body. Creamy in the palate. Easy to drink. This seems like a relatively well-made if simplistic brew. Given its strong reputation, I was hoping the beer would be good enough to overcome the coffee additive, but its not. It literally left a bad taste in my mouth. Oh well; its just another reminder to stay away with anything contaminated by coffee.
