badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 2, 2007
650 mL bottle. Aroma of malt, alcohol, and cherries. Despite the coffee beans, the coffee taste doesnt come through very well. It has a somewhat sour, smokey caramel taste with hints of fruit and a dry vanilla finish.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2007
(22 oz. bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julios Liquors) Really does taste like cappuccino...Pours very dark coffee brown. Three fingers of tan head that recedes to a fluffy 1/2". Nose of vanilla, coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a bit oily. Flavor of roasted coffee with notes of capucccino and dry cocoa. A bitter smack through finish. Liked the flavor alot, would have been almost excellent with a more silky and slightly meatier palate.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and MDS, Harrys bottle. Black, tiny tan head. Nice aroma - coffee roast, lots of sweet chocolate. Great taste - silky mouthfeel, tons of coffee roast and cappuccino flavours, - very sweet. Lots of roast bitterness in finish. Outstanding overall.

bomber. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium sized brown head that dissapates. Aroma of chocolate and just a bit of coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate with an aftertaste of coffee. Very nice.

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
Bottled. Thanks Fredrik. Dark brown colour with a redish tint. Pretty creamy light brown head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of chocolate. Flavour is chocolatey with a hint of sourness from toast malts but no coffee was sensed. Bottle was 1/2 year old.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Good with a croissant and morning paper. Not as thick as some other great stouts, but no wimp either. Perfectly balanced with a very subtle coffee flavor. Head reminiscent of actual cappuccino. Wonderful beer! Sweet and hoppy. Great off-white head. Yum!

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 26, 2007
This beer has a huge coffee smell and taste to it. Nice smooth feel to it. As it warmed, it seemed to bring out more of the malt and chocolate. I did find hard to tell this apart from many of the other chocolate/coffee stouts though, but still like it

pineypower (3173) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Found at the local store and decided it would be a great addition to a weekends breakfast. Pours out black with a moderate sized bubbly tan head. Aroma of coffee and slight chocolate. Taste is very well balanced with coffee, caramel, roasted malt and slight chocolate. Nice Mouthfeel Solid

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2007
the aroma was very full and rich, lots of chocolate, marshmallow, carmel, and espresso (dark roast) with some walnut. whoa. flavor is way dark and bitter espresso flavor thats a bit too harsh for my palate (and i drink coffee like its water). not much of the carmel or marshmallow flavor, but the walnut and dark chocolate carry over.
