Quite dark. Has a lot of vanilla, like the milky canned coffee you get in Japan. A bit flat off the cask. Not really to my taste.

On tap at Beer Belly. Real ale pours out black topped with a small tan head. nose is big coffee forward some sweet chocolate roast. Taste is more of the coffee forward with a nice creamy malt and a light acidic end.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 2016 re-rate: Huge vanilla nose with milk chocolate and bit of roasted cacao nib. Light bodied and feels more porter-like. Tons of coffee mixed with some creamy lactose notes on the palate. More vanilla. Sweet finish with a touch of dryness from the coffee. Better than I remembered. Hand pump at CBM Koenji. Deep brown with no head. Big roasted coffee aromas with a huge dose of rich, creamy cacao. Body is thin and watery, but the coffee notes are there and dominate with roasted coffee bitterness. Finish is quick with a little coffee and chocolate left on the palate, but doesnt really stick. Flavors are there, but body and finish were a tad weak.

A real ale at the Temma Beer Belly. A beautiful dark pour with a wondeful creamy coffee aroma with some chocolate to it. Wow! The flavor is a sweet creamy coffee flavor, surprising but nice. The mouthfeel starts off thick & then thins out a bit. Deliciously unique take on a coffee stout!

Handpull at the Watering Hole. Dark brown, small thin golden bubbly head. Aroma is cafe au lait. Coffee and milk, roasty malt. Taste is sloghtly milky coffee, bit of cola. Quite nice and pleasantly subtle for a coffee beer. Apparently it has changed from the beer previous people had.

Tasted at the brewery from 33cl bottle. Only an occasional brew and this one came from last year. A bit to coffeed for me but another excellent stout from this unusual brewery.

Capa (3138) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Near black with a frothy beige head. Coffee is obviously the main player in the aroma. Some sweet, roasted malts, light molasses, and chocolate. Very, very smooth mouth. Roasted coffee beans, light chocolate, and everything else is pretty well masked. Having said that, it wasnt all that intense of a coffee flavor. Muted just enough to remain very drinkable. I really enjoyed this one.

omhper (24630) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2009
Draught at Thrash Zone, Yokohama (as Minoh Espresso Stout). Completely black with small beige head. Rich and wonderful chcolate and coffee aroma. Mid sweet with above medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Plenty of coffee dropped on a velvet carpet. Milk chocolate and espresso linges as it slowly fades out.

Somebody dumped pounds of coffee into the Minoh stout and...well...that’s about it. Extremely rich in coffee flavours but unbalanced as hell. Seemed more like an experiment than a well thought out brew.

Fantastic espresso nose, that gives way to a strong coffee stout that is severly lacking in body. If they could do something about that this could be a contender
