For those that do not know, Huckleberry Roasters is a microroastery that is located right next door to the brewery - they’re decent, and their beans are pretty much what save this beer - dark ruby pour - frothy lace - nose and flavor are very much dominated by the coffee, which is fine with me - medium roastiness, mild acidity, the beans have hints of smoke, vanilla, berries - the malt is lightly astringent, but this one was okay.
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty fresh coffee aroma. Roasted malty coffee flavor with weak rubbery hints. Has a roasted malty coffee and caramel finish. nimbleprop (8591) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Pours an inky black with some beige head. Nose of coffee, cola, malt, nuts, crackers, toast. Flavors of coffee, brown sugar, malt, cracker, toast, molasses. Dry, roasty finish. Very solid. brokensail (16593) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Our Mutual Friend. Pours black in color with a khaki head. Nose is nice coffee, some roasted malt, and dark chocolate. A bit of earth and espresso. Flavor is pure coffee grounds. Really earthy and dirty as a result. Roasted malt, chocolate, and ash. Kind of nutty as well. Smells nice, taste doesn’t follow. ogiergrove (120) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2013
At the brewery. Pours a very dark brown with creamy head. Rich coffee nose, which is unfortunately the only flavor that comes through the otherwise lackluster stout.

Tap at Our Mutual Friend. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is coffee and earthy hops with roast and chocolate malt. Flavor is malt and coffee dominant with dark fruits and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. onceblind (10011) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Black with a persistent foamy light beige head. Aroma of acidic cold black coffee with roasty black malt and bittersweet dark cocoa. Flavor had a lot of cold black coffee but not in a stale way, but like in a trendy coffee shop way (without the cream), with a little roasted black grains and a certain sweetness on the finish. Lots of fresh black coffee throughout, without an acidic flavor or any astringency..a pleasure to find.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, roast, coffee grounds, some slight earth, chocolate, biscuit, toffee in there. Taste is sweet coffee, slightly overly bitter coffee grounds, some cocoa, chocolate, hints of toffee, finishing bitter and roasted. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown, almost black appearance, with a one-finger khaki head. Huge bitter, over-roasted coffee aroma, with light earthy notes, cocoa, and rye bread. Taste is really overbearing coffee and way too roasted. Other notes of bread, espresso, and wood, but completely overshadowed by astringent, bitter coffee. Light body with soft carbonation. This one has potential, but needs some serious work.
