This was a pretty smooth sout. A strong coffee flavor. Medium-heavy body. Obviously more roasted than the original Double Stout. Coffee throughout the nose and finish. Alcohol is easily masked. Pretty complex with the sweet malts, chocolate, caramel, and coffee.

September 8th, 2012 - Green Flashs "Goddess" Coffee Stout lived in a separate tent, and served joyously alongside other darker brews during Greenflashs outdoors, parking lot summer event. As such, it became a popular destination (and beer) closer to the end of the day when palates semi-fatigued from so many other good tastings were still sensitive to harsher, darker flavors. This stout is dressed like so many others: a deep, dark attire with a silky film of bubbles on top, and a heavy nose of raw coffee beans. The taste is packed with coffee, too, and good coffee at that. It tastes like the depth and complexity of well roasted coffee (for which I am still very much a green beginner) like those served and sold at Birdrock Coffee. Its sticky and slightly sweet, balling up in the back of the throat, where a little more bitterness balances out that good, natural set of dark fruit tones.

Dark and black with lasting foamy thin brown head; little roasty aroma; Flava is richly robustly roasty malty chocolatey with notes of coffee; feels thick to medium with some fizz; finishes dry roasty acidic and bitter

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Sehr intensiver, weicher toffeeartiger Geruch, vermischt mit Nougat und leichten Rstspuren. Antrunk kurzzeitig shpfig, dann sofort schokoladenmalzig weiterfhrend. Im Mittelteil starke Nougat- und Schokoladenaromen, welche trotz ihrer Dichte sehr harmonisch wirken. Slich-fruchtig, wiederum enorm schokoladenbehaftet und mit angenehmer Bitternote abflieend. Ein Bier von beindruckender Dichte und Vielfalt. uerst gut gelungen. Einfach nur groartig!Test vom 20.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Draft @ BT. Black pour with ran head. Aroma of roasted coffee and some sweeter malts. Flavor is extremely roast, like drinking coffee rounds, in a good way.
