UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 500th Stouties Rating. Draft. Talk about being against the grain, however this beer is dominated my my favorite adjunct to beer, coffee! Pours a black brune body with an off white head. Aroma is divine, overwhelming chilled just pulled out of the freezer and buried my face in the can coffee at its absolute freshest, reminds me of some serious breakfast stout on draft. Delicious fresh roast y coffee its all you taste, creamy coffee body and more coffee. Great. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2010
bottle at RBWG, pours black with a medium off white head. Aroma is strong coffee and chocolate. Flavor is rich burnt caramel and bitter roasted malt with a light coffee lingering in the finish. This would rule at breakfast. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Black pour with a one finger tan head. Aroma is LOADED with coffee and roasted malt. A creamy sweet vanilla cocoa nib complements the roast and dark sugar sweetness nicely. Flavor is again loaded with coffee, while the roast is gratuitous. Sweet creamy milk chocolate complements vanilla bean and hazelnut. Palate is medium to full with e sweet iced coffee finish. Yum.

Dark black pour, lots of sediment with an off white head. Straight coffee grounds with tons of bitter chocolate aroma and tobacco as well, hints of some cinnamon spice. Flavor sours with the coffee roast, less bitter flavor then assumed, lots of milky creaminess and some sweet hazelnut. A fabulous coffee treat by my hometown! nickd717 (4707) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Had this on tap at GABF. This is damn good. Pours black with a medium tan head and good lacing. Amazing aroma of coffee, roast, chocolate, and hints of dark fruit. Flavor is coffee and cream, vanilla, roasted malt, burnt notes, mild smoke, and berries. Finish is a bit dry yet palate is smooth. Just a bit watery for the style. Overall a great beer.

sample from the pitcher at GABF on 9/26/09... dark black with tan head... big coffee notes on the nose.... tons of coffee! thin body... more coffee on the finish... If you like coffee, you’ll most likely enjoy this... however it is a bit one dimensional. jb (3275) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Nose is great, woody, very full roasted and toasted grain, chocolate. Don’t get any coffee. Pour didn’t have much head, very dark, mostly black with an off color of brown/cola. Rich palate, thick and chewy, tiny bubbles, coffee beans, some dark fruit, the coffee adds a dry and acidic profile and is interesting. Complex, nice stuff.

Black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is heavily roasted, coffee, light alcohol, cream, chocolate. Taste is coffee, light alcohol, caramel, chocolate, fairly roasty but not over the top. Good stuff. fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle pours black with light tan head. It was poured room temp. I’m glad it was poured that way, too. Aroma is dominated by coffee and roasted grains. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is dark roasted coffee with a slight coffee chocolate finish. This is really good. I highly recommend drinking at room temp. sbroome (149) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2010
nice looking champagne bottle that could be easily passed as wine rather than beer. pours black with tan head that disappears quickly. lots of visible carbonation. nose is dark roast coffee and pepsi. also a hint of soy sauce and carmel. taste is HEAVY coffee with a little smoked wood afternotes. An excellent coffee stout that reminds me of barley island’s black majic java stout. wiih this bitch was available in minnesota.
