The new batch is released! The coffee flavor is so prevalent, it drowns out most everything else, but that's not a bad thing (and this is coming from a non-drinker of coffee), and the coffee adds an extra level of body to the mouthfeel that elevates this beer well above that of a 'normal' coffee stout. (303 characters)

The deepest of hues the blackness is completely opaque with a moderately thick head.

The scent is just roasted coffee, plain and simple.

The flavor is deeply roasted, with a very hearty brand of java. This is reminiscent of Avery's Tweak with a high quality coffee and a profound roast. This is perhaps one dimensional but it has such quality that I found it to be quite delightful.

The feel is all too thin for a stout, lacking any real body. The carbonation is moderate to low which helps but it's still lacking.

This capped off a group of coffee beers by Country Boy and I believe this to be their best offering. (619 characters)

My first Country Boy, enjoyed in a snifter from a growler from DEPS. This FINE stout pours a almost pitch black with some DARK brown highlights and a fairly fast dissipating head of tan foam that leaves light lacing and a thin ring. Nose of strong roasted coffee and dark bakers chocolate, and while not intricate it is extremely expressive. Flavors surpass the nose with strong black coffee, dark chocolate, and very dark toffee notes on all sides. A dark berry note is detectable on the very back featuring blackberries. Slick coating mouth feel is lightly lifted by moderate carbonation. The finish is LONG with coffee flavors, toffee, and deeply roasted malts. Exceptional. One of the best stouts of this style I have ever had. PERIOD.

This is one really good coffee stout.. It really smells like I have a fresh cup of coffee in my glass. Country boy delivers again. I can't wait til they start distributing more beers state wide. (194 characters)

Nate, I know not of your coffee, but as a spice to the American Stout that is Country Boy, the ale becomes somewhat of a standout! So many coffee stouts on the market, it's easy to see how the taste becomes watered down, but there's no risk here as the brightness of coffee shines in taste as it darkens its hues.

As the dark ale smolders in the glass, Its ominously dark appearance sucks all the light from the room as its delicate espresso-like creme swirls about on top. As the ale declines in the glass, its dainty creme holds true and never falls flat yet never overwhelms the lip either. Its light wavelengths of lace are subtle and understated.

Its aromas are alive with strong coffee- not quite espresso, but not quite kona; its Columbian blend scent is nutty, earthy, moderately roasty and highly aromatic. Walnut oils, heavy toast, cocoa and campfire decorate the nose while subtle sweeter burnt toffee notes rise from beneath to support the roasted stout.

Similarly in taste, the flavor of burnt malts provide something of french-roast coffee, roasted walnut, bitter chocolate and charred toast; and that's aside of the actual coffee infussion that layers on top. Its overwhelming java taste dwarfs the base stout and delivers a prominent latte and turkish blend. As the ale settles on the palate, it finishes with a dry roasty taste and earthen chicory tones.

Its body is medium-full as the light carbonation allows the weight of the beer to rest heartily on the tongue and saturates the taste buds fully. Its middle is supple and sweet as the soft bubbles are creamy and delicate. Finishing with a bitter coffee taste, its dryness is much more of roasted grain as it is of woodish hops.

Nate's Coffee Stout is a masterful ale that delivers on the promise of decadent espresso creaminess but avoids much of the acrid roast that's normally associated with the grind. (1,882 characters)
