On tap at Avery on 8/11/10. Made with local coffee from Unseen Bean.

A - Deep mocha brown liquid with ample carbonation and a dollop of creamy beige head that settled to a quarter inch crown and left some sticky, skeleton-like lacing around the glass.

S - Rich chocolate notes paired with medium roasted coffee and a hint of butterscotch. Earthy hops add a touch of bitterness to the nose, but overall this is a very coffee-forward nose with a slight nutty malt character that develops in the backend.

T - Authentic coffee flavor with dark chocolate, caramel and butterscotch notes. While the flavor is not overly roasty, it is quite bitter and delivers a freshly perculated coffee character. Finishes with some mild astringency and ample leafy herbal and earthy hop bitterness.

M - Solid medium body with a fairly slick, oily texture. Not too astringent at all. Instead, the bittersweet character of the coffee really shines.

D - Damn fine coffee stout brewed with a "cold coffee toddy" according to the bartender, meaning the coffee was actually blended with the stout, if I understand correctly. Impressive.

On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color. Looks almost black in the glass, with a finger's worth of khaki colored head.

S: Just an amazing coffee aroma to this beer. One of the best noses on a coffee beer that I've been fortunate to come across. Just a hint of roasted malt and sweet cream and sugar.

T: More of the same on the tongue. Some roast, bitter dark chocolate, and sweet milk chocolate. While those flavors are there, the coffee dominates and is really quite pleasant.

M: The body is medium, but appropriate for just a regular stout, medium carbonation.

D: A real pleasure to drink. Very easy to put this beer down. Too bad it's draft only.

Had on-tap at Avery. Poured a lovely, deep dark brown...much like black coffee. Small tan head that left minimal lacing. Aroma was that of dark malts, bitter chocolate (dark) and coffee. The chocolate undertones come out more in the taste, and they blend very well with the coffee to make for a very balanced and drinkable brew.

Very roasty, and just plain delicious. It's medium to full-bodied with low to moderate carbonation and has a creamy richness to it. Very good!

on tap at the brewery.

A: pours out a ruby-brown with a light brown head.

S: coffee is a dominate aroma, and a good one. I can't say enough about the coffee aroma on this beer, probably one of the best aromas on a coffee beer. i also get some chocolate and brown sugar with hints of roasted malt.

T: just like the aroma. wonderful coffee flavors. hints of bittersweet chocolate and milk chocolate. there is brown sugar and it finishes dry and bitter with hints of citrus hops.

M: medium-thin with medium carb. i wouldn't mind a little more body.

O: a great beer. this is one of the better coffee stouts i've had.

Had this one on tap at Avery this evening. According to the beer list, this is Out of Bounds Stout with cold pressed coffee added. Pours a nice, rich black color with a decent amount of light brown head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate. On the palate, huge fresh brewed coffee, which works really well here; very nicely integrated into the flavor profile, balanced by some nice dark chocolate. One of the better coffee stouts I've had, and an improvement on the already very good Out of Bounds Stouts.

As it says, it is out of sight. Aroma is that of iced coffee and hints of hops. Appearance is as black as an unsweetened coffee, with white head. Taste is exactly coffee and slight hops. Palate is dry slightly bitter. Overall good wake-up beer. Avery does this one right.

On tap at the Avery Tap Takeover at The Common Table.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of coffee in it. The coffee is also the star of the show in the flavor, but it is accompanied by a little bit of roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. There is some sweetness to the flavor which compliments the coffee nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Features a "cold coffee toddy made by Unseen Bean." Well, okay then. I have learned--as an amateur homebrewer--that this is the best way to get a clean and non-bitter coffee flavor into your beer, so once again, Avery knows what they're doing. (I hope my upcoming batch of coffee cream stout comes out good!)

Anyway, this beer poured a dark, coffee brown, not quite black, with a small, creamy, tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and dark malts. More of this in the taste, with some chocolate tones in the background. No hops to speak of. Just lots of roastiness. On the heavier side of medium-bodied; very drinkable.

From 12/1/11 notes. Had on tap at Churchkey at their Avery tap takeover event. Served in a becher glass.

a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one inch of tan head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of coffee, vanilla, bitter chocolate, and roasted malts. Coffee and vanilla mix nicely up front.

t - Tastes of coffee, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, vanilla, cream, and roasted malts. More coffee than the nose, but also more chocolate which I liked.

m - Light to medium body and low carbonation. Pretty smooth body and a tiny bit think for a stout. Kind of reminded me of a light Irish Dry Stout.

o - Overall a really good, easy to drink stout from Avery. Nice coffee and vanilla coming out in the nose and coffee and chocolate in the taste, would certainly like to have it again.
