Draught, deep brown with a nice tan head, a lovely coffee aroma, earthy and roasty. Flavor is more roasty, toasty, coffee and is delicious. Great use of coffee. brianprentiss (701) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2010
really good stout, lovely flavors of stumptown coffee, wish it would come it sixes, because as it is, it is too expensive troopie (2323) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Draught. Poured dark brown with medium tan head. Little lacing. Aroma is roast and espresso coffee. Malty flavour, with more coffee notes. Light roasty finish, with still more espresso and a hop tinge. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2010
Growler. Pours a dark brune body with a tan head. Espresso and coffee beans, fresh roasted coffee with some light vanilla sweetness. Mild malty caramel, drying with a mild roast y finish. Very nice session stout. snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2009
On tap at Laurelwood Public House. Pours black with a thin beige head. Huge coffee nose and taste. Nice roasty malts. Amazingly smooth without the usual acidity. I wish I had bought a few bottles of this that time because last time I was in Portland they were gone.

Growler with a few days’ age on it. Thanks, Kim! This was amazing stuff. Black with no head or lace (could be a bit different fresh of course). Nice roasty nose of coffee and chocolate and prunishness. Creamy body on the high side of medium with soft carb there to round things out. The mid-palate fills up with lovely chocolate, coffee, and dark pitted tree fruit. Mild, brief finish or roast and coffee. Good stuff. BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Had on tap at the NW Kearney location.
Pitch black with very nice substantial tan & khaki ringed head.
Mostly a mild coffee aroma with some sweet sugar scents, hints of powdered cocoa and cream.
Big coffee flavor with a dose of sweet and mild bitterness make this a big malty coffee treat without becoming cloying.
Excellent medium-heavy mouthfeel with strong-moderate carbonation that keeps it from being too sticky. Very drinkable, not acidic. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Tap @ their NW public house... Poured black with literally no head, slight amber highlights at the surface of the beer. Coffee beans and roasted malt on the nose. Really smooth and mild carbonation. This was virtually carbonated, chilled, black coffee. Coffee-nut aftertaste. Really delicious and refreshing. The only thing that was holding it back for me was the lack of head. But no biggie. slugstout (18) - Zig Zag, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2008
On tap at the NE 51st & Sandy location. WOW. Finally a beer worth getting a Coffee flavor isn’t over bearing considering the strong coffee aroma. A very well balanced beer. 3 days in a growler hasn’t harmed this beer at all. Delicious. Should be year round beer, not just a seasonal.
Laurelwood has a great growler punch card program so this growler was only $1.
Get it while it lasts. Perfect score for a perfect beer. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Wow, this is a really incredible coffee stout, very fresh ground taste, with a nice roast and great overall smoothness. Very nice pour with a pure black body and a brown head. Aroma is so pure coffee, reminds me of the sharp coffee notes of Bells Java Stout.
