4.38/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2010 batch just in.

a - dark brown barely translucent liquid with a small tan head.

s - big coffee nose with some sweet chocolate like notes.

t - very nice. gives a high quality coffee flavor without being too overpowering. roasted malts build a body with a hint of sweetness to it (molasses, chocolate, or brown sugar?) that knocks the sharp bitter edge off coffee flavor.

m - medium to thick body. you definitely know there is some substance to it, but its not syrupy as the carbonation is there. mouth feel is one of the highlights to this beer.

overall - amazing beer. When I looked this up on BA, I was surprised it was 8.2%, I was wondering how the alcohol flavor would blend with the coffee, but it isn't there at all. Drinks like a 6%.

Review #666 for this beer. \m/
Anyway.

Poured into a CW bell tulip of course. Dark brown-black stout color, with a foamy marshmallow white head that receded to a wispy layer, and laced the glass randomly. The aroma was definitely the highlight of this one for me, the coffee flowing out as soon as I uncapped it, lesser notes of caramel malts, toasted bread. Roasty taste, dark malts, smooth coffee, that was neither too overpowering nor too subtle, nicely balanced; a little sensation of herbal hops gave a dry and somewhat tea-like finish. Smooth mouthfeel, easy drinkability, medium mouthfeel that wasn't quite as full as I'd like for the style. Overall a nice coffee beer.

4.34/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Pours near-black with large, foamy tan head.

S: Intense roasted coffee aroma, accompanied by caramel and molasses.

T: Tastes much like coffee smells. Sweet, with a lot of roasted coffee and caramel.

M: Thinner than expected. Incredibly smooth.

O: A great coffee stout! Extremely drinkable, huge amount of coffee flavor. Affordable at $7/bomber.

4.33/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served cellar temp in a Tyranena snifter

A - pours an opaque black, foamy mocha head which fades to a thin ring

S - wow, the nose is one of the most intense coffee aromas I've had from a beer. hints of crackery malt linger behind

T - Coffee again dominates, nice and roasty, but not overly so, with dark chocolate chips that follow

M - I'd have to say that this has a bit more body than I'm used to from CW, which is a good thing, as they often seem a bit thin

O - Great coffee stout, quite drinkable, and one heck of a deal (I think it was $6.99 for a bomber?). Glad I grabbed a couple of these.
