Many thanks to levifunk
Medium dark brown. Looks murky on the pour but settles too dark to notice. Two fingers of tan foam held on for a good several minutes but has dropped to an 1/8th inch leaving decent lacing. Hardly any lace by the end.
Roasted coffee & sweet milk chocolate are the main feature. The balance between the two is very impressive. No less so is the blend of coffee; Emy J's has it down pat, at least for this beer. Sweet malt undertones - maybe a little caramel. Mild earthy hints.
My initial suspicion was that Brewhouse Coffee Stout would taste too sweet; not at all the case. Rather, chocolaty sweetness is at a reasonable & supportive level. Indeed, roasted coffee is well-situated & dry. All the more enjoyable are burnt overtones that creep in here & there. Earthy hoppiness offers a mild bitterness. So tasty.
Full bodied with carbonation shy of moderate. The feel is spot-on in relation to the flavors. Dry, roasted coffee & chocolate notes linger on the finish. Again, no alcohol heat.
Brewhouse Coffee Stout is truly an excellent beer. Drinkability? Awesome. I'd definitely put it in regular rotation if I could. This is pretty much my ideal breakfast. Recommended if you like coffee or stouts. Seek it out if you like both.

Thanks yet again to Andrew for the bottle.
Pours jet black, ring of off white head, no lace to speak of. Smell is of coffe and roast, chocolate both of the milk and dark variety, not a lot more going on but still a seemless blend of coffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is of coffee and roast, faint bit of char, chocolate, moderate bitterness throughout coming from both chocolate and hops, ashy/char/roast aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, medium full body. A great coffee stout that should be held in the same regard as Peche Mortel and FBS, something I would very much like to revisit again.
