RSRIZZO (1970) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Aroma is a light somewhat sweet burnt scent. Color is black with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is roasted, toasted and smooth. Stating with a full body it goes down smooth with a little brunt bite on the end. Finish starts with a deep roasted flavor then black coffee and a slight sweetness. After taste is a nice bitterness and a faint alcohol feel. This is a great nicely balanced Stout.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2007
22oz - Aroma of toasted malts, roasted espresso beans, cream, caramel and a touch of hops. Pours very dark brown with a medium head and great lacing. Flavor is strong coffee, roasted chocolate malt, burnt milk and caramel. Cappuccino is a great description! Palate is sticky and creamy without a hint of alcohol. A tasty brew that is different enough to standout amongst the multitude of coffee stouts.

MrBunn (2750) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bomber. Pour is a nice, thick brown with a bit of a atan head, but nothing to outrageous. Aromas are roasty, with some smokey/peaty notes and a touch of espresso. Espresso bean flavor hits lead off, followed by a bit of smoke and a dark fruit/molasses finish that leaves a little alcoholic warmth. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy. Lovely drink in the dead of winter.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Pretty creamy, but i dont get to much coffee or cappachino in the smell or palate, even when warmed. Tasted more like a typical stout to me. Some toffee/coco aftertaste w a little coffee. Smooth for 8.3 ABV

fattibobatti (246) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2007
poured a dark brown with a dirty brown head. aroma is malt and roast. taste included fresh coffee, roast, and chocolate. finish was dry, almost chalky. body was on the thinner side which was a con. alcohol well hidden.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
pours a transparent near black shade of brown. its topped with a fluffy tan head that leaves when it damn well pleases...aroma is initially metallic malt. but it calms to reveal dark roasty malts, chocolate, cream and spent coffee grounds. flavor is the same with the addition of some vanilla notes. its quite dry and bitter with a slight hop presence. it also finishes dry and bitter with a lingering burnt coffee aftertaste. the body is a bit thin but gets creamier as it warms...

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Opaque brown with a tall tan head that leaves generous lacing on the glass. Sweet brown sugar aroma with roasted notes. Thick body with an intense chocolaty sweetness up front lending to a roasted bitterness of coffee flavors.

jimhilt (2569) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours with a light brown, five-finger head that goes slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Virtually black color. Nose is roasted coffee. Smooth, roasted/burnt coffee flavor. Lingering burnt coffee after taste. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Haggens Beaverton, OR.

mar (5272) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
black pour with a head that lasts quite a while. lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose but thats about it. the head tastes like coffee and its actually quite thick for what i was expecting. nice coffee aftertaste as well.

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours very dark brown with brown head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor also has lots of roast coffee and chocolate with some cream in there. Palate is a little thinner than i expected but still nice. Overall a pretty nice beer. Has a good alcohol punch but not overbearing(although my buzz is strong right now). pretty nice beer.
