On-tap at the brewpub: Nice dark brown color with slimming edges of darker amber. Huge frothy and bubbly capping of light kahki colored foam slurps at the top nicely and stays for excellent length. Tons of crunchy lacing is strung all about the glass as its consumed.
Very pleasing aroma of fresh coffee, maple syrup, cocoa, and oatmeal raisin cookie dough. The coffee aspect tends to losse its grip on the nose as it warms and a darker, sweeter maple takes over.
Taste is good, very smooth and semi rich with a nice firmness of dark sweet malt balanced in with rounded coffee, chocolate, powdered sugar, and hints to berries. The maple is what really coats over the palate well with a terrific balance between all the other things mentioned above keeping it all in check as to not get to sweet or heavy. Light and buttery notes along with some nuttyness slip into the background as it finishes a titch dry with cocoa and coffee, but maintaining a perky maple sweetness all the while.
Body is a solid medium tone of smoothness. Sweet and delicately creamy in areas with great balance and holding length. It tends to thin out as the glass empties and some middle spots, but overall this keeps a nice creation of breakfasty things on the palate.
A very drinkable and easy going stout. The coffee isn't as big as some out there, but what this has I liked as the balance was quite nice.

I had this one at the brewpub. It is black with a nice beige head.
Big nose of coffee and some malts in the background.
Not surprisingly, the first taste is of coffee. Unfortunately the stout part of the beer is pushed a bit to far in the background. The coffee taste reminds me off how those old percolators smelled (slightly burnt but not that strong). Just missing a little something.
The mouth was a bit thin for a stout. Drinkabilty was not great. Up the malts, tone down the coffee a bit and you would have a winner.

Solid ebon hue, good cocoa-tannish, slims down, but still attractive.
Beautiful espresso nose...vibrant, rich, and roasty...exceptional. Lovely.
In the mouth, yums, yum, Yummy McYummersons...rich, slick, and not overbearing in the least. Smoothness itself. No so much malt is felt, nor stout, but coffee, coffee, coffee, balanced and ballasted by a big helping of stoutaliciousness in the body. Full body. Ah, stouty! Ah, coffee-y!
What else can be said? Done right, once more...I keep drinking it, and I keep loving it...dangittidang...coffee stout done right is one of my favorite joys. Long live it.
Okay, so I'm drunk, so sue me...

It is a dark inky black, slightly brown and red at the very edges. Thin tan head. The smell is of dark roasted coffee, not quite like espresso as some coffee stout's I've had, but a little more mellowed out enough to let in some other aromas (and flavors when I get to that part). Definitely some sweet chocolate malt in the scent as well. The taste is of course of coffee initially, but not overpoweringly strong or bitter. Just a good dark roast. The malt is quite sweet and chocolaty, with some fruit tones along the lines of tart cherry and plum. I really liked the mouthfeel of this beer as well, it was a quite chewy beer which was broken up well by slightly more carbonation than usual for a stout.
