On tap at Eldora. Definate a coffee stout, but not much else. I would like this with a tasty breakfast burrito. Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2009

Pours a silky dark brown almost black with a small brown head. Aroma is espresso, roasted malts, cream, caramel. The espresso aroma is really appealing. Flavor is huge roasty espresso goodness, chocolate, vanilla and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but still quite good. I really dig the flavor profile on this one. Robust Imperial stout taste, with a little less alcohol. Good stuff. NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2009

On tap at the brewery. Pours near black with a tan head. The aroma shows solid coffee infusion with hints at butter milk and chocolate. The coffee is sharp and thin in the flavor, but still good. The finish is milky and hints at wood/tannin/vanilla are found buried in the coffee mix. This is a pretty decent coffee beer, but not the best.
Thanks to Tim for this brew. Very dark brown pour with a tall rocky khaki head. Strong espresso coffee nose. Sweet coffee icecream flavor up front. Soft, highly carbonated palate, dry and medium bitter finish. Good beer, but a bit light bodied.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottle from Tipsy’s Liquor World, Denver. Black and tan with a viscous pour. Nose of sweet roasty malt, espresso grounds and Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange. Taste is much the same, good roasty notes with a lick of coffee and cocoa thrown in for measure. Grew slightly more complex as it warmed, a touch of vanilla and an orangey hop bitterness shone through. Ends with a nice dry finish, only gripe is that it’s a little too sweet and thin for my liking, but hey, still a pretty solid beer overall. Corby approves...

Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Tastes of espresso and chocolate. Decent. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Aroma is a deep roasted scent with a big coffee note in the back . Color is black with a very thin but tight head and low carbonation. Taste is bold and roasted. Starting with a full body it goes down smooth. Finish comes in with a deep roasted flavor that has a mellow burnt note and a slight sweet feel then just a hint of hop flavor. After taste is dry with a mild bitterness and a very faint coffee taste. This is a nice stout, not the best but its well rounded. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle at hotel in Blouder - thanks Kasper. Espresso aroma. Taste: espresso, coffee, burned, roasted, chocolate, sweetness, thin body and finish - boring. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bomber called ’Big Daddy Espresso Stout’. Poured clear, deep cola brown with a swirly cap of tan head. The aroma really rocked the espresso character with fine roast and a couple shots of sweet cream in there.. molasses and vanilla sweetness too.. nice presentation. The flavor had a rich malty core of espresso, sweeter chocolate, molasses, and brown sugar.. coffee and earthy bitterness surrounded.. picked up vanilla and the aforementioned sweet chocolate again at the finish. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. more substance at the beginning and toward the finish.. dry and grainy at the end. Overall quite delightful.
