Pours deep mahogany with a light brown head.
Has a lighter aroma of coffee bean, oats, and chocolate.
Once again, the flavors are lighter but the body is full. Not the cleanest blend of coffee roast and chocolate, but it still works. The finish is slightly astringent and dry with some noticable hops.
It has a nice quaffable quality, i've been known to drink around six of these at a time. More of the session coffee stout, if you will. I have drank my fair share of this beer and will continue as it's on tap at my weekend pub.

Served from a growler provided by my brother and sister-in-law as a Christmas Gift. Served in a new English pint glass; a gift from my sister.
Poured a dark, dark karo syrup brown with garnet highlights. Head tan and fine. Nice lace. The aroma is good roast coffee. Very faint hops if any. The taste is delicious coffee and chocolate. No harsh bitterness, just the right amount to meet the style. A little thin on the mouth feel, but a nice finish. Extremely drinkable.

12oz bottle, bottled on 11/2/10. Pours brown with a smallish off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is grains, some chocolate and coffee.
The flavor is bready malts and slightly stale acidic coffee with a burnt bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation.
Overall, an OK coffee stout. There's decent coffee presence but the flavor is a bit off for me.

12 oz brown bottle with a bottled on date on the label. This stout is brewed with Kaldi's Coffee.
Head retention is fine, some good stickage on the glass. A shade lighter than pitch black the liquid is. Smells of mocha iced coffee with a hint of sweetness from the oats. Very smooth and creamy with a semi-slick mouth feel. Chocolaty roasted malt with a big tone of coffee flavor, mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a long lingering chocolate / coffee flavor.
Very tasty and balanced, and balanced is what I look for first in a coffee stout espsically if the acidity is too much which is not the case here. Paired well with a handful of chocolate cover espresso beans.

Excellent appearance poured into the glass, with an opaque dark chestnut body topped by a tan head that rises about an inch before falling to a lasting cap. Lacing is in chains and sheets.
Aroma is very nice. Lots of roasty coffee, just a hint of bitter chocolate. No hops are discerned.
Mouthfeel is light medium. Carbonation is above average for style.
Taste is bitter, dark roast malt, as per style. Lots of roasty coffee Columbian coffee bean flavor here. Maybe, some grassy hops in the background. Finishes bitter roasty malt, as the style dictates.
One of the better products from the nice folks at Schlafley. A very well put together American stout that is a pleasure to sip.

Sent to me in an awesome package of generosity from rsyberg01 for the holiday sponsor a BA. Thanks again!
Appearance- Pours a ruddy dark brown with some light and a touch of crimson showing through the bottom of the glass. Only about a finger of fizzy, light brown head accompanies the beer and dies back in short order. Little to no lacing but some mild carbonation beading up the side.
Smell- Pretty straightforward roasted malt and burnt coffee on the nose. Pleasant enough but not much else going on.
Taste-Again, fairly one dimensional here. Mild flavors of roastiness enriched with some bitter coffee. A little to understated for my tastes without a whole lot of coffee coming through.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Mouthfeel comes across a bit thin and fizzy but not too bad. Drinkability suffers for me on this one as the flavor was just a little too uninteresting to make me want to session it.
Overall, an unoffensive, mild beer. I am partial to coffee stouts and found this one just a little lacking in the flavor and body department to make it a home run for me.

This beer pours dark brown with a creamy head. The head fades somewhat quickly leaving few laces. As soon as the beer is poured, you are assulted by a very strong coffee aroma. Hidden is a malty aroma, but the coffee aroma is dominant. It tastes very coffee like. I guess that is because it is a coffee stout. It tastes just like cold coffee with alcohol. It is very impressive. Other coffee stouts only have a mild coffee flavor, but this one has very strong flavors. It leaves a coffee taste in the mouth. It is rather pleasent. It is carbonated just right. This beer would be a great session beer. It is very tasty and it doesnt have too much alcohol. If I could get this beer where I live, I would drink it all the time. The rating it has doesnt give it justice.

(Served in a nonic)
Brewed on Oct 06.06
A- This beer has a dense opaque walnut brown body with a brown glint glowing at the base. There is a creamy light tan head that pulls away from the glass to from a cone of head that last and last.
S- The smell of fresh espresso coffee beans has a hint of chocolate malt and some nice roasted bitter notes.
T- This beer has a smooth creamy black coffee bean flavor with a slight tart nose that increase as the beer warms. There are notes of black malt and some black roasted grain with a slight nougat note and a nice molasses note toward the finish.
M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a light slippery/watery texture.
D- This beer has a smooth creamy mellow flavor with a big coffee bean taste. There are no cold and old coffee flavor but on the other had there are not many bitter flavors from the grain that really make a stout a stout.

This brew pours into my glass looking, coincidentally, like a cup of coffee: dark brown, nearly black, with some clarity and a lighter brown in the light. There's a bit of a tan head that stays around for a little while before dissipating and leaves a little thin lacing in light patches. There's just enough going on here to put this above average in appearance.
There's some coffee on the nose with a little chocolate and another underlying sweetness tinged with something artificial, perhaps even a light metallic note. There's a nice malt (perhaps chocolate malts were used here, and/or definitely something roasted) and a light balance is achieved with some hops addition.
The taste follows suit with the tasty coffee and chocolate rich malt backbone accompanied by a light sweetness and a light hops touch in the finish.
The mouthfeel is smooth with a moderate carbonation and a medium body, maybe a little light for a stout. There's a richness to it and the feel stops just short of thickness.
