Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has sweetened milk coffee with some dark chocolate on top. Taste follows with the sweet coffee at first but gets more bitter and roasty towards the finish lingering with coffee flavor on the aftertaste. Medium to full bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall its a really nice coffee stout with balanced flavors.

Well, we finally made it. Beer rating # 69. It is gonna be 351 more ratings till we get to another funny number so lets bask in it for a moment . . . OK, on with the review. Here we have another contentious stout rating for I enjoy them but my better half winces and calls them "garbage water" unless the chocolate notes are strong and pure. This beer does not have strong choco notes. It is very much a coffee stout (per the name obv). It has a nice malty smell and dark velvety pour (edit: and also smells like a raccoon died in a dumpster). It has a nice coffee taste and lingers with a long finish (edit: that will not go away unless you chug your hot cocoa). It isnt as good as the "High West-ified" varietal I tried from Lagunitas a few weeks ago, but this is still good (edit: 696969696969696969696969696969). I like it at least. Review by me, edits by my booboo.

Smells like a rusty coffee can. Tastes like some day old maxwell house out of that can.

Hermod (7224) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2016
65cl bottle @ William K, kurvi. 8,9% version. Poured near black with a thin brown head. Aroma has strong coffee, roasted malt, licorice, spicy notes. Lots of coffee here, builds up nicely with some licorice, mild ashy notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate. Long finish. Nice, but expected better body though.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of coffee, stewed fruit, and a bit of vanilla. Flavors are of mild drip coffee, pale malt, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Elements of ashy coffee grounds show up on the finish, along with some mild herbal bitterness. Solid, but not terribly intense.

Dorkenstein (509) - - OCT 12, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Espresso and roasted malt aromas, dark fruit/chocolate too. Taste is espresso, bitter roasted malt, and dark chocolate. After it has warmed, a fudgey dark chocolate and plum flavor becomes codominate with the espresso.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 I have had many coffee stouts over the last two years since I have gotten into craft. There are variations left and right. The Cappuccino Stout is a nice spin on the style by being a high gravity brew with a bit of the milk stout DNA appearant. The nose is lent more toward coffee and cinnamon while the taste is a melody of chocolate, espresso and a cinnamon kick. It looks great in the glass with a massive 3 finger head. A rich dark brown appearance.
