Wow, poured from a 22oz from malt & vine. did you ever need an after dinner desert beer? well here it is!! strong scents of coffee and chocolate right from the pour and immediate tastes of the coffee. turned this coffee, i mean beer into something different. at first I wasnt s sure this is where I wanted the stout to go, but was impressed how powerful they made this. great job

On tap at hub with Carla. Pours deep brown with tan foam. Smells bitter of roasted malts and espresso. Feels very smooth and tastes heavily of coffee and a bit of chocolate and bananas.

Nice rich malty stout - stands out in the fairly mediocre offerings of the other styles. Well done.

Sammy (11830) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Interesting bottle picked up in vancouver. A lot of interesting grains that yield a cerial of tastes, yet it doesnt all integrate together. Expresso and coffee so if you are a coffee drinker you probably liked this better. Dark and lacey despite a small head. big roast, above average mouthfeel of course. In a word, roasted grains.

Cybercat (5562) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Aroma has tones of semi-sweet chocolate and fine roast coffee, with a very strong smoky overtone and a hint of toffee. It pours a deep, warm sable with a thick, if not overly persistent, tan head that leaves some good lacing. Smoky flavor has roast coffee and woody tones with nutty, chocolate and toffee hints. Texture is smooth and fizzy, a teensy on the watery side but still more than acceptable. If ever you are in Oregon, look for this one!

Travlr (23610) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Cask and draft tasted side by side at BikeBar, courtesy of staff - thanks! Aroma of chocolate !! and burnt espresso. Taste is like strong coffee. Low carbonation. Needs more body. Not a great cask choice, and served too cold. But overall, OK.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bomber. Appearance is black with a shade of dark brown around the edges and a half-inch of light brown head. The aroma is predominately dark roast coffee and roasted malt with some additional burnt nuts and molasses notes. The flavor is a dark and roasty blend of espresso, malt and grains with a little bit of chocolate mocha, brown sugar and herbal hops at the end. The body is mildly creamy with moderate carbonation and finishes dry and smoky with a slight coffee aftertaste. Overall, a full-flavored and balanced Stout with just the right amount of coffee flavors.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle purchased at uber... Pours a dark cola pour with reddish edges and a thinnish white head... Aroma of rich roast, lighter coffee, and cocoa. Somewhat nice and somewhat of a dark fruit background... Flavors have a touch of an improvement with more of a coffee roast profile. Medium bodied with a nice flavor profile overall.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle from trade with Duffman. Thanks T-Bone! Pours very dark. Red hues near the bottom in the light. Off white head that islands after a while. Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee. Some mocha notes and bready malts as well. Taste is lots of dark chocolate and loads of coffee. Very creamy body with a nice lingering coffee bitter finish.
