"i dont know anything about the "cold toddy method" but the coffee presence in this beer was super-fresh, almost like chewing on a fresh picked bean. definitely at the fore-front. another one that covered up the beeryness of the beer, but not in a bad way. smooth texture, medium bodied. some light roast and chocolate and hops to accompnay the coffee. Another nice beer from Lou!"

Thanks to Beerhandy for this. Pours deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of malt, huge coffee, jalapeno oil. Tastes malty, very oatish, coffeeish, with some chocolate and hops at the finish. More chocolate syrup as it finishes, with tons of coffee all the way down. This one reminded me of Bells Kalamazoo and Founders Breakfast Stout, although it wasnt as complex or refined. Still, this one surprised me, and I loved every sip of it. Jeeves, get me another, my good sir!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is a nice, deep ruby with a healthy mocha head. Semi sheety lace. Aroma is light hotel coffee but fairly muted. Taste is hotel coffee, very one-dimensional. Watery palate. Nothing offensive here but just super weak sauce at 5.7% for stout. At least its not sugar sweet or syrupy. Pretty neutral and inoffensive.

12oz bottle. Very dark brown near-black color, thin tan head. Smooth carbonation and texture. Hearty, like an oatmeal stout should be... Great aftertaste, very different! Excellent coffee aroma, totally authentic and spot-on. This is clearly the real deal. Awesome roasty bitter taste, that really lasts... A great-tasting brew.

on tap @ Radio Maria. Deep copper brown, thin beige head. Rich coffee and roast aroma, hints of ash. Nice, natural rich coffee and roast flavours with underlying cocoa. Dry finish. Tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Draft at Over/Under in St. Louis. Pours a very dark brown color with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by coffee, with notes of roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and toast. Rich and smooth, and light-medium bodied. Roast coffee aftertaste. Sure to please coffee drinkers, and a nice coffee stout overall. Re-Rate: Had some of my wifes draft at Ei8ht Ball. This is a nice coffee stout. Smells great, drinks really easy.

courtesy of sirpsycho. Pours deep ruby brown with brown head. Aroma of torrefied coffee, light mocha and malts. Taste roasted malts, light coffee with a light bitter finish. The overall taste does as some have mentioned remind me of some stale weak coffee. I got the mouthfeel of the next morning coffee that sat in a cup all night. Not bad, drinkable, but a little too light.

My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee beans and their charred edges are surrounded by tiramisu sweetness and chocolate in this agreeable Coffee Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the darkness.
-The finish is also a touch acidic.
-Carbonation is a bit too prickly for my liking in this type of dessert-like flavor profile.
-This is not trying to reinvent the style. Its just doing a good job, and thats fine with me when Im in the mood for coffee flavors in beer.

Bottle.
