Midnight black body with a thick, dense, creamy textured light tan head. Charred grains and coffee grounds abound in the aroma; chocolate. Taste is much like the aroma with a sharp bitterness and a vague sourness lurking in the background. Fairly heavy body; smooth and creamy feel.

A decent coffee stout that hits most points just fine but slips a bit with a mild tang in the flavor.

On tap at Crazy Mountain brewing in Edwards, CO. Black but not too dark, looks alright though. Aroma was sort of blah, maybe there was some grains but it was pretty pedestrian. Flavor was not good, bitter, burned, acrid, just a bad beer all around. I was pretty surprised that most of the beers I tasted at Crazy Mountain were of very poor quality, this one was bad but at least it wasn't disgusting like some of the others.

This beer had a tan head and a very dark black coffee look. Nice coffee aroma to it. The beer had a lower carbonation to it and a dry mouth feel to it similar to an irish stout. The first sip had a strong coffee aroma that dissipates to a dry Irish stout tasting beer, not a ton of flavor which was kind of disappointing. It almost tasted like a low fat coffee milk shake. There is an astringent/ bitter finish either from hops or the darker malts. This beer looks great but I was expecting something with a little more flavor and body too it.

Thanks to someone for sending this along in a recent trade. 22 oz. bomber popped open & split with my wife.

Pour is black, no yeast evident in the bottle, low fizz. The nose is bloody weird: tons of roast cut with the scent of sour side of lamb. Yes, I smell meat. On the scale of wonderful to suck-my-blood-leech-and-tick terrible, this leans me towards the latter.

Snow Cat should have been left out in the Rockies. The coffee taste leading the beer is choppy & cheap; tastes like my dad's coffee smelled in the mid-70's. Malty. And then there's that aftertaste of sharp, acrid smoked flesh. It really sticks to the back of the throat & throws me off so much I don't even want to take a third sip. I do. I regret it. Drinkable only in one ounce measurements.

I hate to just mindlessly bash a brewer's effort, but this beer is stunningly bad. The coffee is lousy, the base beer is virtually undetectable, & on top, something has gone horribly wrong. A downright abysmal brew.

22 oz bottle. Pours black brown with a medium fluffy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet grainy malts with a little acidic coffee.

The flavor does not have a lot going on - some acidic roasted grains with a little stale coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, I had this on nitro tap and it seemed really washed out. The bottled version is sadly the same. Roasted acidic grains with no real flavors and no real coffee to be seen.
