Tap. Max’s. Pours a clear black body with a small fizzy brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is really big on the coffee, lots of roast, a little bit of a burnt note, almost smells more like coffee than beer. The flavor has a ton of coffee, but it comes off as a little over-roasted with a slightly burnt and acrid finish. The little bit of hop bitterness seems to enhance that a little too. Med bodied w fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but the coffee isn’t quite dialed in for my tastes. BeerandBlues2 (13661) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 27, 2012

Flavor is malt dominant with earthy coffee notes, dark fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. sonnycheeba (6214) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2012

Draft, "Gemelli Coffee Stout," 5.5% ABV. Small tan head atop cola-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, strong coffee/espresso, some milk chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, some coffee bitterness/astringency, roast, light bittersweet chocolate. Smooth light-medium body, some creaminess. Smells more like coffee than some coffee I’ve had. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 10, 2011
An awesome stout, light-to-medium bodied, but the moderate-to-big flavor. Good fresh coffee flavor. Smells like my grandma’s kichen with coffee brewing (so fresh-brewed coffee flavor with a bit of must and old rye bread, but not stale aroma). Yummy. light-to-medium carbonation.
