Pours an opaque dark brown with a thick, pillowy tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts, sweet overall but rather restrained. Taste is another matter completely, with an assertive coffee flavor dominating. Acidity of the coffee is rather high, making for a sour-sweet flavor. Sweetness of the malts adds to this profile, but there is also some bitterness noticeable as a result. Mouthfeel is a bit thick but far from oily, with a sharp tingling from the carbonation. In conclusion, I wouldn’t call this a great stout, but it is definitely a great coffee beer. One for the coffee geeks.
Pours black with medium head. Aroma is Munich hops and light caramel. Aroma start with sweet caramel, warming to a touch of coffee. Finish has a slight hoppy bite. MNAle (242) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Pleasant aroma: coffee and chocolate. Deep ruby, nearly opaque. Short tan head, receding quickly to a thin cap and ring. Feel is smooth, a bit thin. Roasted coffee flavor, chocolate malts, with a nice bitter balance, leading to a clean, dry finish, only slightly bitter, a bit puckering. Enjoyable stout: good flavor, nice looking, coffee aroma, and dry finish. 1pintatatime (179) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2018
Pours dark brown with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, slightly burned toast, and coffee. Good finish. Mouth feel is a bit on the thin side. All in all quite tasty but more or less average. puredelusion (445) - Lviv, UKRAINE - DEC 9, 2017

An okay sweet stout. Pours dark brown, has a little coffee, though not as much as you’d think considering the name. Tried for the first time in 2008.

12 oz. bottle (best by 1-31-2018) pours an opaque dark brown/black with one finger tight beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is as expected: roasted coffee, chocolate, and cream. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of smokiness in the finish - not very complex, yet enjoyable. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. This one comes off weaker than its stated ABV and thinner than I prefer my stouts, but proved enjoyable anyway. BeerInHeaven (509) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2017
pours a very dark brown with a medium tan head. Roasted malt and strong coffee aroma. Rich sweet malty taste, then the black coffee bitter kicks in and hangs on. Hints of dark chocolate. Daddy like. Deelgee (13) - - SEP 27, 2017
