A. Decent head, not perfect for a stout. Lacing pretty mild throughout. pretty dark in color but not quite mud

S. smells awesome, like robust coffee. I was actually expecting to like this even more than I did based on the smell.

T. Great initial cappuccino flavor, but has a sour bite on the end that is not what I want in a stout.

M. Thick, Solid

O. Can't get over the sourness to fully enjoy this beer. Good brew but not great. Would not buy again but a solid effort

Bottle into worthy glass

A a dark brown color that resembles coffee thick mocha head of about an inch that dispates quickly

S:smells like dark coffee with cream similar to a cappuccino but with a hint of malt and hops didn't blow me away though

T: follows the nose coffee with cream not quite cappuccino status but taste is close there is a nice roasted malt in the flavors but I feel like the creaminess should be more balenced with a stronger coffee flavor but its still there through the finish

M: smoothly and very creamy texture that makes this pretty easy to drink as alcohol is totally not there rich and thick as well not spectacular but good

O:solid stout tastes as advertised but I wish flavors were stronger. Though on the other hand it was drinkable and hid alcohol well so I'd say if you like cappuccino flavors in your stouts give it a try if not its not a must have but it's good

Winter 2012 bottle

A: Pours a dark mahogany color with a fingers worth of tan head

S: Starts off with the coffee along with some roasty malts and even some light hops

T: Follows the nose. Nice and roasty with a good dose of coffee and a nice little alcohol kick. Get a good amount of earthiness as well from the hops. Finishes slightly astringent and bitter from the coffee/hop combo

M: Medium-full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Nice and smooth

O: A very nice coffee stout with plenty of coffee presence while preserving the stout qualities. A nice breakfast sipper or night time warmer, this one is extremely versatile. Definitely worth picking up

Poured from a bomb into a snifter.

This is my favorite coffee stout to date. Fantastic roasty, dark malt presence on this. Coffee is prominent on the nose & on the palate as well. Mouthfeel is medium-thin. In some other coffee stouts, the coffee flavors have not come through as well as this one. This seems like a great example of the style. I might be in the minority, but I'll take this over FBS. Flavors seem to blend together very nicely.
