2.11/5 rDev -45.3%
Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter. It has a cola look and smelled like cheap coffee. Smell is overpoweringly coffee. I did not really taste beer in this at all. Rather, it tasted like cold Folgers. It didn't taste like it was brewed with coffee. It tasted like someone poured a little bit of stout into stale coffee. I won't be trying again.

Appeared very dark, almost black.
Smelled like semi-burnt, weak coffee, and the taste was much the same. I could not fish out any other flavors besides the burnt coffee flavor, and I may as well have been drinking coffee.
I have enjoyed coffee stouts in the past, but this one was a bit too one-dimensional for repeated tastings. Judging from the other higher scores, I may have had a bad pour, but I don't think so.

I poured this promising beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a black looking brew with a tan head. The head did not last very long at all. The beer mostly tasted like coffee, cold coffee, cold heavy coffee with a handful of sugar thrown in it. It was cold coffee to me and not beer. I will not buy again.

Thats pretty much a big ol coffee beer alll right. Big aroma of roasted coffee, fortunately not too bitter. Clearly the fact that its one of BRs regular brews has meant theyve kept working on it. The brewmaster told me hes had some business types slam three or four pints of this the night before a big presentation, then call back to complain that they couldnt get to sleep at all. So he makes sure everybody knows that this not a "coffee roast malt" beer; this is a beer with lots of coffee in it! And its pretty tasty, too.

Poured a dark brown color with a suprising amount of transperancy for a stout. With a nice inch of tan head.
Smell was very nice, hints of bitter chocolate, heavy coffee odors and some nice burnt malts dominating.
Taste was dominated by the coffee. A little bit of bitter dark malts, but mostly coffee flavors coming through.
Mouthfeel was very thin and watery, the one real downfall to this beer.
Drinkability was fine, I just expect a little more substance from a stout.

12 oz. Bottle. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but when I pour this beer into a glass the head is, for lack of a better word, unmanageable. Takes 10 minutes for the head to die down. So it takes a long time from opening this beer until the time I get to drink any. The head itself tastes like an ashtray-not indicative of the taste of the beer. The beer itself has nice roasted coffee flavor but a little too thin for my liking. It's just ok.

A - oddly overfilled bottle pours a cola-like dark brown topped with a creamy beige head that holds decent retention
S - coffee and roasted barley aroma with some chocolate
T - coffee and roasted barley again here. Chocolate and oatmeal are present as well
M - thinner body than expected, moderate carbonation.
O - pretty pedestrian coffee stout. Good, but nothing extraordinary.
