Starbucks and Budweiser collabaration via Redhook? Yep, but at least it is a fine brew.

1000 midnight black colour with a creamy, frothy tan head that laces and swirls. Heavy dark-chocolate, caramel, coffee and roasted malt nose. Great roasted malt flavor with strong coffee, slight bittersweet chocolate and roasted barley. Hop bitterness peaks through the powerful flavors. Thick, full body that wraps the tongue with a slight coarseness.

A slight warming smooths the body and blends the flavors better. I think I may warm this one on the stove. Possibly a great, warm winter beverage.

Powerfull flavors, strong body and an eye and ear full. Enjoy. Cheers! (680 characters)

You'll find a massive light brown head upon pouring this into your glass, settling over a dense black brew. Nose is of roasted barley mixed with coffee. Taste is a bit light-bodied with roasted malt notes giving into an abrupt burnt malt flavor, hops are barely there...also a bit of diacietyl noted as it warms up. Finishes a bit thin and one dimensional. A nice beer, but that's about it. (390 characters)

Pours an absolutely jet black with a heavy, sticky dark tan froth, lots of lace. Strong and rather sweet aroma of coffee and honey. Tasting yields very strong notes of iced coffee, roasted barley, and bittersweet chocolate, with spiky hops, toffee flavor and coffee residuals at the finish. The only reservation I have about this beer is drinkability, due to its rich character, more than one in a session seems excessive, in the same way that a slice of chocolate cake is quite satisfying, but the whole cake is just too much. A fine beer, fit for the most discriminating palate. (585 characters)

Presentation: 12 oz. short brown twist. Freshness date clearly marked. Blurb about being brewed with Starbucks Coffee.

Appearance: Black, very black in colour with a huge sticky tan froth that sticks like taffy. The actual pouring of this beer had an awesome cascading affect!

Smell: Hmm ... Starbucks coffee, iced, with roasted undertones.

Taste: Potent, smooth and creamy flavours of iced Starbucks Coffee, roasted barley and hints of dark chocolate. Hop bitterness is slightly assertive along with the coffee and roasted barley. The finish is lingering coffee and sugar/honey.

Notes: Damn! What a beer! If you love stout and good coffee then this will be a "to die for" beer! The best darn coffee stout ever brewed. (730 characters)
