Bottle from Kroger. Pours black with a brown head. Medium bodied. Pretty straight forward, medium roast coffee with a moderate bitterness. Very balanced

Pours a nice deep dark brown(almost black) color. Aromas of chocolate, smoke, and some sweetness. Flavor is dark chocolate, a touch of berry, and smokey. Creamy with a dry finish and a bittersweet aftertaste.

Part of the winter pack. Decent coffee stout. If it weren't so hard to find I'd buy it more often. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4424) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Black with deep brown edges. Thin, short-lived, tan head. Sweet, fresh ground coffee over well-roasted malts with a bit of dark chocolate. Taste: Nicely balanced dark malt and coffee flavors. Theres a hint of spicy hops, particularly in the finish. Excellent sweet/bitter balance. Fine and long-lasting coffee/roasted grain/hops aftertaste. M: Smooth and creamy; perhaps more lively (carbonation) than usual for a coffee stout, but works well for this beer. O: Another very good coffee stout; these seem to have gone from rarities to nearly commonplace (e.g., Kona) in a short time. [from notes]

"nice addition to the holiday pack! pours a deep dark brown, near black w/tan head. at first the aroma i was expecting wasnt there, so the explosion of roasted malt and coffee on the palate came as a bit of a surprise. But the aroma opened up eventually too. Coffee dominated in a good way. A little thin, but about right for this style (its not an imperial after all). Well done."

Bulk_Carrier (4096) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a pure pitch dark black colored body with a creamy light brown head that disappeared fairly quickly, quick sliding lacing. The smell had dark roasted malts, smokey coffee and just a hint of chocolate. The taste had a roasty coffee flavoring that lingers for a while, chocolate comes out as it warms a bit. The palate was about a medium, fairly sessionable, mild watery sweet aftertaste and finish. Overall, Im thinking Sam Adams did what they wanted to do with this one, chocolate and coffee, as for me, yeah, Id have it again.

onceblind (7846) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Clear dark brown with a thin laceful light tan head. Nose is a bit light but its caramelly with a wee note of nuttiness and very light coffee. Sweet flavor with earthy strong toffee and a wee bit of nuttiness, very light coffee tones. No heavy body, roast, or chocolate tones. A light bit of dark fruits throughout. Not shabby.

pours a dark black with a thick khaki head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma is of coffee, chocolate, brown sugar. the taste is lots of the same and very complex. Sam Adams did a great job on this beer.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Black appearance with a lacy tan head. Aroma and flavor of coffee, espresso, rich malts (chocolate, caramel), bread and dark fruit. Medium body, a little thin. Pretty tasty.

Draft at Sharp Edge McMurray. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nose smells like they burned the malt. Theres a hint of coffee there. Some coffee notes on the tongue but theyre kind if subdued. I do like my coffee beers to taste like coffee so theres that.

November 2011. From bottle. Black with a beige head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Bitter finish from the hops. Very good.
