On tap at the brew pub.

A- black, decent lacing with a creamy toffee coffee colour.

S- straight up bitter roasted coffee, with a thick malty and roasted body.

T- lots of coffee, mouth coasting, bitterness itn't through the roof but helps, also a slight fruity edge, nice bitter finish lingering coffee beans, really nice.

M- low carbonation, full body. Alcohol is pretty well covered up by malt and coffee, nice and creamy feel to it.

Great take on the style, really interesting and flavourful. Worth a try.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a nice dark brown with 1/2 inch dark tan head. Decent retention. Faint lacing.
S: Roasted caramel malts...and a faint hint of coffee...wish there was more.
T: Ahhh...there's the coffee! Nice dark roast coffee hits first. Solid roasted caramel malt backbone. Not too complex here, but this one certainly offers an excellent coffee note.
M: Medium body...not as heavy as one would expect from the 9.2% ABV. Coffee bitterness and a hint of sweetness.
D: A solid, but not great, coffee stout. As mentioned above, not too complex but the coffee note is very well done.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet.

A: Fluffy creamish-colored head. Dark brown, but translucent.

S: Delicious, creamy, and sweet. Flat coffee. Milk chocolate.

T/M: Rather nice. Roasted, bittersweet chocolate. Lightly bitter finish. Nutty and pleasant. Reminiscent of cappuccino indeed. Smooth and sweetish mouthfeel.

O: Good stout, but nothing to get into a froth about. I'd have another, sure, but I'm largely ambivalent.

I had off the tap at Boulevard Tavern in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

A. It has a dark brown or black (in a dimly lit bar) color. It has a good thick, foamy tan head that leaves a good deal of lacing.

S. It definitely has a nut and toffee scent to it.

T. It is so cappuccino-y that it doesn't even necessarily taste like a beer. Chocolate and caramel and coffee, a slight burnt taste. Bitter bit at the end. It doesn't taste at all like a 9.2% beer.

M. A tart aftertaste.

O. It's a bit overbearing, but it is exactly what you would want from a cappuccino-inspired stout, if that makes sense. Good, but more than one and your taste palette is ruined.
