Pours dark with minimal head. Nose is mild coffee. Flavor profile is espresso express! Great coffee character with little to note as a detractor. I've got nothing negative to say. Very smooth feel and very easy to drink. A great coffee beer. Glad I found this one.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black with a small tan head that leaves behind some lacing.

S: Coffee. A touch of roasted barley malt and dark fruits. But mostly coffee.

T: First impression is the coffee. But after the palate adjusts to that, I'm also getting a nice roasty foundation underneath, with some fruitiness - dark fruits and dried fruits - and some vanilla, followed up with a bit of char and roast bitterness at the finish. I've had far better coffee stouts, but this isn't bad at all.

M: A bit thin/underweighted in feel. Carbonation is modest.

O: OK. Nothing earth-shattering, but better than I expected for some reason.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Back label says Bottling Date: 04/09/14.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before dissolving down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thin solid ring behind.

S- Immediate shot of booze plus some brown sugar sweetness. Trying to find coffee and dark roast but it's hard to see through the heavy alcohol fume.

T- Taste is much of the same with an overbearing sweetness and booze burn. Mild coffee, soft vanilla and some unappealing dark roast. Coffee starts to come out more as it warms but it's too little, too late.

M- Sharp from the booze and not as viscous as it should be. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Wow, I don't know what they were going for here, but this is a pretty lame excuse for a coffee stout. Way too boozy to be enjoyable and the coffee presence is severely lacking.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Looks like it should for a double stout

S: Best part of this beer is the smell, almost has a barrel aged character to it

T: My bottle was dated May 2013 so that must be why this beer isn't very good. I taste very little coffee and a lot of fake chocolate when drinking this beer

M: Decent, a little flat

O: I may just be tasting an almost year old batch but this beer was not good at all. I would have thought a 9% stout would hold up somewhat well over a year but that doesn't seem to be the case with this beer. I was very excited by the smell because it smelled a bit of bourbon but the fake chocolate taste was a huge let down.

A: Black, like the kitty licking condensation off of my glass. A creme tan colored head rises up from the body of the beer. The head is small, and gently subsides back into the body of the beer.

S: Rich dark coffee, molasses, and perhaps a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Some slight earthy notes, but the coffee really dominates the aroma with rich malt backing it up.

T: First sip is all coffee, the flavor subsides, and lets the malt shine through, dark chocolate, and possibly a touch of wood comes in. The finish is sweetened coffee, almost but not quite cloying. There is a touch of alcohol in there...

M: Medium thick in body, the carbonation is a bit strong for me, but not too distracting. The finish definitely goes out smooth, coating the mouth with coffee goodness as it goes down.

O: Good brew, nice stout and I like what the espresso bring to the party. Considering the abv, and the fact that I got it pretty cheap in a mix a six, I think it is a pretty good buy. Perhaps not the best of the style, but certainly something that will kill a craving.
