Stale french roast coffee from a can in a thin, overly sweet brew that I keep forgetting I hate. And its not often I actively dislike a beer, let alone in such strong terms.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a Duvel tulip.

A- Pretty much jet black, but doesn't pour super thick. A short tan head fades to a ring of lace.

S- Yup.. roasted coffee. Not much more going on here.

T- Again, a ton of coffee. a little difficult to tell what else is going on. Just a bit of dark chocolate comes through as it warms. A little bit of sour characteristic as well.

M- Medium light body and moderately carbonated.

O- Not bad. Almost on par with DFH Chicory Stout.

poured from a bomber bottle into my girlfriend's NY yankees stout glass.

i poured it heavy to get a good head. sunrise poured a beautiful 1 1/4" tan head with stripes of black that quickly transformed into a small head with lacing on the glass. i could have sworn that i saw a layer of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. cortland beers always seem unfiltered... is this so?

the smell is different for an american stout. it is smokey & smells just like a good quality coffee, hence the name coffee stout. it smells organic, earthy & almost musty. i smell a light sugar sweetness like a nice cup of coffee but im not smelling any hops to speak of.

the taste is pleasing like a good stout. it's not too overdone flavor or alcohol wise. it actually tastes like cold coffee... more so than any other "coffee" stouts i have ever tasted. the aftertaste is sweet in my mouth. this would make a beautiful morning beer to have breakfast with for sure... ; -) sunrise stout... it's whats for breakfast!

the mouthfeel is nice & creamy like a good stout. the sweetness is heavy on the tongue & the carbonation is mellow. pretty smooth!

overall, i would not choose this beer to drink a lot. but for those special moments when i desire something different this would be a good choice. as it warms i actually prefer this beer cold.

A: dark...it's stout

S: pleasant coffee aroma, very coffee heavy on my nose

T: awesome! I didn't find the coffee flavor to be too overpowering but it is definitely a good strong coffee flavor. Also roasted malt is present on the back end. Well balanced.

M: it has a malty, rough mouthfeel. Very nice though. What I expected from a coffee stout. The taste grabs you by the back of the throat for about 5 minutes after you finish a sip.

O: great beer. I bought 2 bombers on my way through town last week. On my way back through this week I will definitely be grabbing a few more (some for me and some for my tasting buddy back home) pleased with the price and the taste. Not an everyday beer but a worthy treat for a special occasion!

22oz. Bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out nearly opaque black, just a bit of rubiness on the edges when held to the light. About one finger or so worth of light tan head that eventually faded to a thin patchy layer. No real lace.

Big coffee bean aroma. Espresso with maybe some ice coffee. Hints of dark chocolate mixed with the coffee. All about the coffee in the aroma. As it warms there's a bit of a hot pepper like aroma without the heat.

Again pretty much all about the coffee. Coffee grounds, iced coffee with bit of chocolate. Bitter cocoa finish. As it warms just a hint of plum like fruit.

The mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side and almost a little watery. Could use a bit more body.

Nice coffee flavors and lots of them. If this beer had some more body it could be a real winner.

22 oz bomber courtesy of suspect pours a lighter shade of black with a creamy cap of tan head. Fades at a medium pace and settles to a ring and sheen.

Nose is dominated by coffee, ground and mildly vegetal. Some chocolaty sweetness tries to poke through, but is having a tough go at it.

Man, this thing is beastly on the coffee. The other malt flavors really have a tough time competing. It is kind of bitter and really roasty. If you don’t like coffee, stay away from this one. I would like to see a blind test of this next to a cold cup of black coffee...lol. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side as the malts are pretty flabby. That said, I didn’t have much trouble throwing this one back by myself.
