Taste - Up front Cappuccino, with a roasted sort of malt in the back. A chocolate-y taste is the finish, with the bitterness coming to round it out. It doesn't balance it, so it does come off bitter after, with the roasty malt accompanying it.

Overall - I like it. Its not balanced, but its still a pretty darn good stout. The flavors are what they're supposed to be, and nothing really rubs me the wrong way but the finish, which is a little bitter...and yet, its pretty mellow for this style of stout.

Poured from a 650ml bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature Glass.

Color: Deep dark brown with a brown head.

Smell: Strong coffee up front. Followed by toasted malts with a hint of vanilla and oak.

Taste: Same as the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, lightly coarse with a medium dryness on the palate.

Overall: Has a nice great BIG coffee flavor and aroma. Medium bodied with a great balance. This is a definite coffee lovers choice. Cheers.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter

Appearance: Looks like black coffee, if a tad hazy and with a moderate tan head. Decent retention and lacing.

Smell: Modest roasty malt aroma, with light-medium roast coffee competing for dominance, but in a nice, well-balanced way.

Taste: Coffee flavor in the forefront from start to finish, but there's also a solid malt base and a touch of earthy/spicy hops. The malt base could be richer, but then the excellent malt/coffee balance might be off. Unusual bitterness profile with more, or at least as much, bitterness mid-taste as in the coffee-flavored finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with excellent carbonation;very smooth.

O: Easy to drink, refined coffee-stout with great mouthfeel. Limited bitterness given the substantial coffee component that leaves a lasting aftertaste. Excellent cold but improves with a bit of warming.

Poured from a 750ml bottle...

Appearance: Translucent ruby aura within the brown body of this stout. Alcohol coats the inside of the glass with a strong coffee lacing.

Smell/Taste: Sebastopol's "Hard Core Coffee" is most prevalent within both of these elements. Most minor hop within the nose but not so much on the palate. Alcohol is fairly well hidden but not completely at 9% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Minor carbonation amid a medium to full body.

Overall: Most worthwhile for me is the warm belly and the nice alcohol rush this one exudes. Each element falls just short for me though.

Dark brown beer with a tan, 2 finger head. Nice lacing. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is coffee and dark chocolate with a touch of sweetness, possibly cream and sugar. The mouthfeel is on the thin side and the aftertaste dissapears quicker than I’d like. Too bad because it’s very good. I discovered this beer 6-7 years ago and seek it out every release. A good example of a coffee based beer.
