3.69/5  rDev +1.4%

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a 20 oz pub glass and served at 40F. I have to say the last time I had this it was much fresher, would have reviewed it a bit higher...

A - Nicely dark chocolate colored body, but a watery pour that results in a thin khaki bubble ring. Carbonation is tight and lasting though.

S - Nice, roasted coffee with a little alcoholic sweetness.

T - Coffee is indeed the upfront flavor, so kudos for that. But not much complexity behind it. Some malt presence but its so faint its indistinguishable. A little sweet-n-sourness also, rye and raisinlike.

M - Really watery initially, but it picks up mid-palate thanks to the carbonation. Leaves a burnt tasting aftertaste that is off-putting however.

O - A decent offering with room for improvement. Having it on nitro would improve it tremendously I feel...

Poured into an 8 oz. glass nearly jet black except for a some ruby highlights when held up,a thinner beige head atop.Dry earthiness and french roast coffee in the nose,very dry.Dry and earthy on the palate,maybe to dry,tated almost dirty with no sweetness to counter-balance dry earthiness and roast.I like a dryer earthy stout but this may have been a little over the top in the category for me.

32 ounce growler purchased this evening at Carmine St. Beer in NYC, NY.

Pours dark dark brown, loose dark mocha head, that stays decently, and then goes to a frothy film and leaves ample high tongues of stick.

Milk chocolate and cafe au lait nose.

Medium to lighter bodied for a stout.

More chocolate and muted coffee notes. Smooth, quite easy and pleasant drinking.

More coffee grounds come out as it warms up a bit. Nice stout, that worth trying...

On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location.

Pours black with a good, durable tan head that leaves lots of sticky lacing.

Aroma: black coffee with a trace of hops.

Taste: black coffee; touch of hops; faint dark roasted malts. Medium bitterness. Good coffee flavor. Very good sweet/bitter balance.

Feel: thin body; smooth; medium carbonation.

O: Well-crafted, light version of the style that's is heavy on the coffee flavor

Big rich light brown head settles into a nice lacing above a clear super dark brown to black colored beer.

Rich black coffee to coffee grounds aroma with any cream or sugar.

Big black coffee taste with some of the dark roasted malt characteristics coming through nicely.

A dryish after taste with the feel of a creamy bakers chocolate on this full bodied stout.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker but this stuff might help sway me.

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%

650ml bottle, 5.4% ABV. Man, the coffee-infused beers are coming out hard and fast as of late.

This beer pours a solid, abyssal black, with ever the slightest of basal bronze highlights, and three imposing fingers of puffy, densely foamy mocha head, which leaves some nicely consistent, loose chain cog pattern lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly abates.

It smells of somewhat bitter, dry roasted coffee beans, baker's chocolate, lightly toasted bready malt, rather dry salted caramel, and some earthy, mildly herbal hops. The taste is quite similar, but more rounded - bolder medium sweet cocoa, fuller, softer coffee grounds, a still struggling grainy caramel malt, some clammy black licorice notes, a touch of charcoal, and very faint hints of a earthy hop bitterness.

The carbonation is pretty average, and good at it, the body medium-light in weight, with a rather dry edginess, which is cold coffee all the way, and makes smoothness a hard sell here. It finishes just a tad off-dry, the plaintive wails of the caramel/toffee malt gaining a now surprising tenor, as the bitter coffee and chalky cocoa sit back and light a cigar by the fire.

A moderately dry Yankee stout, for those caffeine freaks out there - you can certainly taste the guest ingredient in this one. I have to give credit, however, for as strong as the coffee initially seems, there's enough else going on to keep the rest of us non-users and non-early risers happy.

3.2/5  rDev -12.1%

On tap @ the CBC on 3/17/10. Served in a pint glass. I don't remember the exact ABV on this but I believe that it was in the 5-6% range.

Pours a straight black in the glass (although some ruby does shine through along the bottom) with a 1/2 finger of creamy light mocha head. Thin but very frothy retention on this, which leaves a ton of sticky lacing behind. The aroma is very roasty and bitter, with some sweeter tones and hop activty in the back, but this is mostly very dark feeling in the nose.

The taste is bitter dark roast coffee, with a firm dose of hops mixed in. Chocolate and caramel sweetness hang along the back, along with a touch of earthy citrus. Overall though, this is very burnt and bitter in the mouth. It would have been nice to have, you know, a bit more actual coffee flavor present. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a big prickly feel that fills the mouth up but there is also a bit more of a thicker feel underneath. Mostly though, this stays sharp in the mouth.

I like a good Coffee Stout like the next guy but this just leaned WAY too heavy to the dark side of things. Just not enough actual flavor (beyond charred roast) coming through, and this could have also used some more balancing sweetness. There were a lot of interesting looking beers on tap here during our visit and this one left me disappointed.
