Poured from a 22. Best coffee stout out there. Aroma is just like a coffee shop, strong and sweet. Flavor is definitely coffee and not bitter at all. Has a slight chocolatey creaminess to it. Nice smooth finish and the coffee flavor really stays with you. Perfect! jennajlover (135) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2015
One of my favorite beers from one of my favorite breweries. Smell of espresso and milk chocolate. Taste of roast and slight burnt toast. Flavor of silky smooth roast coffee and a coffee nose after brew is finished. stchloe (1017) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2009
If you drink coffee and beer, why not do it at the same time. This is an incredibly dark and heavy body stout. Aroma of coffee. Tastes like coffee. Even a little pep. And its organic, sweet, the bitterness takes the place of hops and yum yum yum! bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Itís rare that I find a local Stout I havenít tried before, so when I do, I usually fall in love. This beer is no exception. SrSilliGose (3330) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 12, 2010

Holy shit this aroma is outstanding.
Aroma is sweet milky espresso, no astringency. Lots of milk, espresso and roastiness. Damn, I am impressed by this aroma. Usually I get a lot of ashy aromatics with astringency tossed in.
Taste is milky, slightly astringent, a bit thin, bitter/roasty, smooth, and milky.
Finish is slightly dry, a bit ashy, and bitter.

Jet black. Amazing espresso flavor. Amazing. Not much head, no lacing. More coffee than stout. Some oats would make this close to a 5. Thanks aaron. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JAN 16, 2013
bomber into glass, super stroing coffe aroma, taste is very expresso specific, absolutely love it, would def seek out again vulcanmeister (269) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Pours jet black from a 22oz bottle delivering a rich full chocolate tan head which lingered for a good while. A waft of alcohol, a strong blast of dark rich coffee and some sultry brown sugar notes in the nose. Mouth feel medium-bodied and astringent. Flavor - can you say "coffee". Nice rich coffee with a malty sweetness but not too much. The flavors echo relatively quickly but leave a nice warm glow wrapped in an cup of inviting coffee and a kiss of bitter-sweet chocolate. Ahh...coffee.
