16 oz chalice at the Glass Half Full taproom.

This beer appears a solid black, devoid of light in any form, with one finger of weakly foamy, sudsy beige head, which leaves some random specks of remote islet lace around the glass as things duly sink away.

It smells of espresso beans, bittersweet cocoa, black licorice, caramel malt, treacle, subtle char, earthy hops, and a slight twinge of metallic alcohol. The taste is still rather bitter coffee-heavy, though now the bready, roasted caramel malt comes out to play in force, while the anise notes lean towards Scandinavian saltiness, and the hops do well to cut through the espresso to provide a complexity to the dryness.

The carbonation is a bit edgy, but settles out soon enough, the body medium-heavy in weight, and actually rather smooth, and a tad creamy. It finishes on the sweet side, the coffee going all Starbucks, with the chocolate and earthy root spiciness.

A pleasant enough coffee-stricken stout, the guest ingredient seeming a bit intrusive at first, but settling out as things progress. Ennjoyable, I suppose, if this is your type of thing.

On tap at Avery. Pours near black. Loads of coffee. Some underlying dry roast. Really excellent coffee beer.

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.

@ Woody's

Black with a slight, bubbly head and drippy lace. Smells primarily of coffee grounds, sweetener, and something like cold chocolate ice cream. More coffee in the flavor, dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and some wateriness. Medium bodied and dry with a bit of texture.

Simple, not complex, but not bad. I feel like the base stout isn't quite bold or rich enough to compete with the coffee.

Tried this one on tap at the Avery tap room in Boulder. Quite disappointing...

Dark brown and with translucent ruby hues. Looks more like a porter than a stout. Thin off white head leaves behind incredible lacing, though.

Smells of day old coffee with a hint of bitterness at the end. Some choocolate and licorice with a mild smokiness. More coffee porter than stout.

Tastes like it smells. Mostly old coffee, with a hint of chocolate and cherries.

Way too thin-bodied for a stout; drinks like an English Porter. Not an unpleasant MF, but for a stout...not creamy, no foaming in mouth, and way too light.

A mediocre beer that doesn't really fit into the stout category, and too "stale coffee" to constitute a good porter either.

This is a coffee stout, a variation on Out of Bounds.

Sampled at the brewery on 9/24/11.

Listed on the menu as a "house blend - cold coffee toddy added."

A - Black with a short sticky mocha head. Appears a bit thin, but leaves excellent lace.

S - Rich roasty coffee grounds, almost burnt. Slight ashiness going on here as well.

T - Strong coffee roast and bitterness to the flavor. The base stout lends a very dry character. Big char character.

M - Leaves somewhat of a mineral aftertaste. Dry with lingering bitterness.

O - Nice one, but too roasty for me, it came off as too harsh to fully blend with the coffee addition.
