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.

Pours a fairly effervescent mahogany with 3 fingers of fluffy tan head. Good head retention & head retention

S: Coffee & roastyness

T: Follows the nose, roasty, dry with a little cocoa up front. More dryness, roastyness, carob as this warms. Finishes with coffee grinds, dryness & charred grain, a little bit of woody & herbal hops

MF: Light/medium body, semi-firm carbonation

Drinks pretty easy, a pretty good take, not a great one

The coffee is to present in this coffee stout. Reminds me of a cold cup of coffee. You can't really taste the base beer at all, it's all coffee. It has potential, just needs more stout. I would like to try this next year to see if they change it.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a metallic smell overlaying.

T- Burnt Folgers coffee flavor that's bitter and bordering on acrid. Not much sweetness going on here which would actually help tip the scales away from the intense roastiness. Unpleasant bitter aftertaste.

M- Thin and lifeless with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Yep, the reviews are correct. I love coffee beers and this one is a failure. Cheap coffee flavors with nothing else to accompany it, brewing flaws apparent in the nose and a limp mouthfeel. It's becoming clear that the only decent beer these guys make is Lawyers, Guns & Money, which isn't even that good to begin with.
