On tap at the brewpub. Poured dark brown with a medium brown head. Big coffee in the aroma. Flavor was coffee and earth notes with a thin to moderate body. Way too much carbonation and a somewhat medicinal finish. smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - MAR 18, 2007
coffee. stout. stout and coffee. this wonderfully light toffee and quite strong cold resiny coffee. somewhat oily on the mouth. tasty. andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2007
it’s close to a black pour/tan head from the 12oz bottle from which this juice came. so it’s an oatmeal stout with espresso dumped in? that makes more sense. the aromas i got were not really coffee, but more like fresh roasted espresso combined with chocolate covered espresso beans. roasted being the key word, not toasted. i think i could have this in the morning as opposed to coffee though; the taste is close to dead on with the name. espresso stout would be a tad better. truly enjoyable, but i couldn’t do too many of these in a row. it’s a bit heavy on the tummy. good beer though. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2007
From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Liqour Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - This one poured a black brew that smeeled like, well, coffee and possesed a tall brown head of foam. Tastewise, it was coffee nearly all the way with some malt sweetness at the end. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Black, with a thin tan head. Huge coffee aroma, as one might expect. Hint of burnt toast, as well. Coffee dominates the flavor, but notes of burnt toast and dark chocolate sneak in as well. Tasty.

Aroma is not only coffee, but GOOD coffee. Black with a frothy head just makes it look appetizing. No off flavors; exactly like advertized...coffee, malty, with a creamy finish. Extremely well made. madscotsman (147) - Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Nice coffee stout. Pours dark in color with a tan head. Has the aroma of coffee and a great finish. Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Bottle from jgd0608. Black as black can be with small fizzy tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and blck coffee. Nice bitter coffee flavor as well as good malt backbone. Good body as it is not gonna be too thick since it’s a regular stout. Leaves a strong coffee flavor in your mouth that’s for sure. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Pours a dark black color with a light brown head. Aroma is of dark malts, raisins, and roasted coffee. Flavor is dominated buy bitter roasted coffee with some malts backing it up. Kind of thin on the mouth feel. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 30, 2007
12 bottle 2006 version courtesy of BigErn. Pours to a beautiful,. bright, deep brown, to black color, with a rocky, white head that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of good aromas of coffee, and hints of mild roast. The palate is firm, with good dark chocolate, coffee, and mild roasty flavor. The palate is very creamy and silky on the tongue as well. This beer finishes with more good dark chocolate and coffee flavors, then ends with a mild roasty flavor that lingers. The addition of real coffee in this beer makes this a really great coffee stout. If you love coffee and stout, you will love this beer. Excellent desert beer, and a great beer to enjoy after a big meal, and dare I say I beer you could enjoy with breakfast.
