Well, this definitely stays true to the name. Pours a nice thick black with really thick dark tan head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma smacks you in the face with coffee, but it’s not a cup that I would be all that happy to drink. Slight other aroma of almost burnt malt and nutty character. Flavor matches all too well, but has a creamy sweet property to it that makes it a pretty pleasant drink. Mouthfeel is heavy, but surprisingly dry.

Bottle from Flanigans. Roasted aroma with notes of coffee, vanilla and oak. Pretty basic. Deliciously smooth stout with some heat, really nice coffee and sweet malts. Wow. Almost Storm King esque.

Thick aroma of coffee and cream. Medium mouthfeel that coats your tongue. Coffee taste nicely balanced by the lactose. Toasty malts. Very well done. Bottle.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Aroma of roasted malt and mocha. Opaque brown/black color, brown head that sticks at 1", sheets of lace. Taste is creamy roasted malt that moves through suitably light carbonation to solid bittersweet mocha. Full-bodied, perfectly balanced, complex, and light in the belly. Highly recommended.

Bottle. Espresso bean, dark chocolate malt, and dry grass aroma. Black with moderate brown head. Moderately sweet latte, dark chocolate, and moderately bitter coffee bean/hay flavor. Nice body. Very tasty.

12 ounce bottle, stamp on the label says 10/31/16. I’m assuming that’s the bottled on date since Short’s website says this brew was a November 2016 release. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like coffee, cream, roasted malt and some chocolate. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, it’s all coffee, cream, roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. I think it’s more bitter than sweet, and that’s fine with me! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee stout, I’ll see if I can find a 6-pack of this one to buy. $2.79 a single bottle.

Dark black. Khaki head. Creamy espresso. Slightly acidic from all of the espresso. Cocoa powder aftertaste. Delicious. Thx arminjewell!

Big rich coffee aroma, pours an opaque black with a quickly fading tan head. Very dark rich coffee notes coming through, with some sweetness tempering the roast in the finish. There’s a nice slick and full mouthfeel. This is a very good coffee stout.

12oz bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Tosa. Very dark brown pour with a brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma has big coffee up front, with chocolate and other sweet malts. Taste is a well blended bitter coffee, sweet milk, and bittersweet chocolate. Not too thick. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence. The blend is quite good and the carbonation is soft. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet, although the bitterness is certainly in the battle. Quite sweet creamy, with a nice choco/coffee combo. Very solid and tasty. 14.4
