Purchased at Sprouts in Poway CA. Pours very dark blackish color. Decent lacing and a whiteish head that faded quickly. Smell is really great. Coffee, faint hints of chocolate, some nice earthy undertones too. Taste is very coffee forward, kinda reminds me of those chocolate espresso beans some people like to eat for a dessert. I found the coffee flavor on this stout really nice, its the first thing that really hits the palate and its bitterness, followed by some malts and chocolate to balance it out, makes for a very pleasent drinking experience. Not a particularly thick stout, with a pretty thin mouthfeel(very much like a cup of coffee) but even a russian imperial stout enthusiast can find a enjoyable beer in this one.

Poured a dark coffee color in a snifter with a 3F head. Very nice looking beer in a snifter.

Aroma is strong roasted coffee, which lingers for a while during the tasting.

Mouth feel: moderately carbonated.

The taste is more mellow coffee than the aroma. I would have liked to taste the intense
roasted coffee of the aroma. There is also a light, almost vanilla-like quality to the taste which mixes well with the coffee.

The finish is quite good- roasted coffee on the back of my tongue.

Overall: a very good coffee stout. San Diego coffee works well in this style. I would like a heavier roasted coffee taste in future brews.

Dark brown and clear with a ruby hue when held up to the light. The one inch cap fell relatively quickly to a thin skim of fine bubbles and a solid coating of lace on the sides of the glass. Coffee and roasted aroma, malt and brown sugar, a bit nutty with some chocolate character. Chocolatey flavour, moderate bitterness, brown sugar and roast, bittersweet, pretty straightforward. Medium bodied, creamy carbonation, dry on the palate. I enjoyed it.

Small tight-bubbled head. Leaves some ring and spotty lace. The liquid is dark brown but a bit of light comes through on the bottom of the glass.

Strong, harsh coffee ground aroma. Very bitter. I'm not a fan of coffee and I think this too much.

The flavor has the coffee dialed down. It's still strong and dominant but not overwhelming. The body is on the thin side and the carbonation on the high side. Overall, a bit of a one-dimensional beer--coffee without sugar or cream.

A: Pours a very dark brown with a one and half finger tan/mocha rocky head.

S: Aroma consists of coffee, dark chocolates and some earthy notes, maybe a little nuttiness in there too. Some dark malts are present as well.

T: Delicious. Notes of coffee are present but not overwhelming. Additionally, there are notes of dark roasted malts, some lactose I think, a very slight oatiness and like the nose, some earthy nuttiness.

M: Great on the tongue, not particularly carbonated, works very well with the flavors that are going on, a little slick, not too thick though.

O: Quite good. I very much enjoy this beer. This is the second beer from Coronado that I have had and it is very tasty, would definitely buy it again.

Pours a tan colored small fizzy head, fades at a med pace with no lacing, leaves something to be desired, very dark molasses brown color.

Nose brings a lot of coffee, just like pure coffee extract almost, a bit of a roasty toasty coffee, little earthy, quite nutty with a bit of a peanut butter note, a bit of a roasty malt and hint of char, hint of an acrid black malt note, mild chewy malt as well.

Taste brings more coffee syrup, a bitter tannic coffee, with sweet syrupy flavors and a little chewy creamy oat feel, mild fluffy nougat but not much. Lots of nutty flavors again, peanut butter, bit of a roasty malt and hint acrid black malt, mild char, and just a touch of a chocolatey fudgey note. Finish is sticky and syrupy, little acrid coffee roast, bit of an earthy hop bitterness late, more fudgey notes as well.

Mouth is med bod but chewy and a bit creamy, lighter carb through all that.

Overall mixed, coffee seems almost like coffee syrup or extract but has a roasty tannic note as well like hot brewed and condensed, the fudgey chewy and creamy oat aspect is nice, but the sticky syrupy isn't, some nice flashes and some not so nice.

Poured a clear deep brown (not black) with a what I initially thought was a fizzy head. The head however settled into a creamier consistency and had great retention and some nice lacing. The aroma was fairly weak, with only some mild coffee notes and a slight earthiness to it. Taste-wise, there was a little more coffee flavor, especially up front, with some more pronounced earthy hops towards the finish. There was a decent fullness on the palate and a little bit of a crisp hops bite on the finish. Not a mind-blower but a decent beer.
