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.

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!

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 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.

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.

On tap at the tasting room at Avery. Poured a dark brown, nearly black color with a slight tan head that disapated quickly, leaving a small brownish film. Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, malt, and more coffee. Taste was very nice: coffe, malt, a touch of bitter chocloate, and a failry dry finish. I like this one better than the base beer (Out Of Bounds Stout). Coffee, anyone?

3.35/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with a thin sliver of beige head.

Smell: Roasty, bold coffee-toned nose, though the standard-issue Out of Bounds stout featured this, so it's hard to find exactly where the roasted malts end and roasted coffee begins. Background hint of bitter chocolate.

Taste: Roasty, even cuttingly so from the start with a distinct flavor of black patent malt. A hint of unsweetened chocolate does little to cut through this initial sharpness. The added blind-roasted coffee easily finds a home with the blindingly roasty black malts. Earthy, not-particularly-pungent spiciness from the hops. Amply bitter throughout. Dry, lightly astringent finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: An improvement on the original stout. While it's not exactly 'out of sight', it's at least not as 'out of mind' as the so-so Out of Bounds Stout.

A very drinkable coffee stout from Avery. Although it almost feels like an "American Black Ale", or Cascadian whatever we're calling those things now.

Dark brown pour with slight head on top. It's hard to judge the head at bars as the bartenders try to fill the beer to the rim--in most places anyway. Some soapy-yet-a-bit-oily lacing.

Aroma is black coffee, yet not robust. It lingers around as some chocolate and black bread come and go.

Straight up coffee flavors. Dark chocolate can be detected. Some green twigs give it a bit of a sour taste. Hops give it some earthiness. Feels like an IPA without the citrus. Some tannins.

Overall pretty good.

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.

A: deep brown, not as dark as I like my stouts
S: well it certainly smells like coffee, it's like a 711 in here.
T: mild burnt malt flavor, they went a little over board on the Honduran coffee. it really tastes like carbonated coffee--not beer.
M: sharp carbonation for a stout. watery and too weak for my taste. is it just me or is Avery big time overrated?

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.

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.
