12oz bottle to snifter. Cola colored with big pillowy frothy tan head. Light body and mild mannered. Biting carbonation much like a soda. Mild stout with moderate coffee. WiscoWanderer (2) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2016 does not count
Pours a beautiful dark dark brown with an impressive creamy head. Very nice. Smells of roasted coffee and some sweet dark malt. Tastes creamy smooth coffee and malt. I think I just pick up sugar in addition to the coffee instead of chocolate or molasses, etc. Just a delicious coffee roast with some well complemented sweetness. Smooth and delicious. I had the Kalamazoo Stout earlier today and found myself preferring that because of the more complex notes such as molasses and licorice. But for being a "coffee stout", it does that extremely well! seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Poured from 12oz bottle into nonic pub glass, opaque very dark brown, reddish at the corners when held to the light, with light brown foam, lasting with lace. Great coffee aromas, even better flavours of malt, toasted brown bread, roasted barley, charcoal, chocolate, mellow breakfast coffee, cherry, plum, raspberry. Faint tartness and bright coffee-like acidity. Medium body and carbonation, relatively dry finish. Good long-lasting roasty aftertaste. Another delicious, well-balanced New Glarus brew. 574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Totally would have guessed 6-6.5% ABV on this. Pours pitch black with a thick rocky froth of cappuccino foam that hangs out a while and leaves numerous awesome looking webby rings of lace. Nose involves sweet molasses, toast, vanilla, marshmallow, and some light roasted coffee notes. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium to full bodied, frothy, soft, rich, velvet on the palate, with a lengthy roasted and dark chocolate finish. I think this is fantastic. It doesn’t scream coffee, so those looking for an intense java fix may be disappointed, but for me the body is where this shines, especially considering the lower ABV. Thanks to a friend for throwing one my way. BiiruBierBeer (1049) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells like burnt toast. Taste is toasty and malty with an aftertaste of sweet dark chocolate and mild coffee.

Jet black aroma of roasted barley and dark tan one finger head. Taste a ton like coffee and pretty good malt complexity. djd07 (14502) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is roast and chocolate. Medium mouth, sweet roast, milk chocolate, light dryness, very good. tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2014
12 oz. bottles poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown hue, with a finger’s width of fairly lasting, tan head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted, with grain & malt, and subtle hints of treacle & dark licorice. Medium+ bodied, the taste began with some pleasant creaminess to the mouthfeel, then coffee, a little smoke & char, and moderate earthy & roasted bitterness that worked well with a lively carbonation. Thanks Jeff for the tasty share! jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of coffee, cocoa, toasted dark malt. Lighter medium body. Mild roast. slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"definitely smells and tasted like a dry irish underneath - the thin body being the only drawback of this otherwise very good brew. I was hoping for a BIGGER beer, but the plethora of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors was nice. Maybe a touch of clove in the aroma too? Good, not great."
