Pours pitch black with a brown head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells like straight black coffee. Touch of chocolate.

Thick syrup like mouthfeel. Overwhelming amounts of coffee flavor. Touch of chocolate. But basically just like drinking thick black coffee. Not a huge fan. Has a nice finish so it could pair extremely well with dessert. It's okay and id have it again under the right circumstances but eh.

Well.... the notes on this beer really make me feel welcome to review it. Someone needs to tone it down a notch. Everyone else, stop adding beers that already exist (I'm looking at you, Curmudgeon's Better Half!).

Anyways, poured into my Duvel tulip. No head, not even the threat of one. Flying Dog, how do you do it?

The aroma certainly has a lot of coffee character. There's also a bunch of stone fruit and berry in there and hints of vanilla.

This actually doesn't taste half bad - but the coffee comes across as cold leftovers from the morning's brew. Not sure what type of beans are used, but I'd much prefer something darker and more roasty. The beer just seems overly sweet and ordinary. Vanilla and hazelnut.

Thin mouthfeel. Overall I really wanted to like this, but I just find myself disliking it more and more as I get through the glass. When I pay premium pricing for a coffee beer give me some espresso beans or premium coffee. If I wanted some Folgers Crystals in some milk stout I'd... well... actually I wouldn't want that so... yeah.

Sigh.

I was looking forward to this beer. A renowned brewery must have done a coffee stout right ... or so I thought.

It pours beautifully, but that's where the goodness ends.

The smell (or stench) is upsetting. Like raunchy socks at the bottom of a hamper.

The taste isn't balanced. Coffee is present in abundance and overpowers everything else, except for a bit of cocoa.

A more subtle coffee flavor would help this beer substantially.

A-black with a thick brown head, very pretty.

S-dark roasted coffee but mostly has a tint of bitterness and vegetables. medium scent. smells off

T-comes in with an odd flavor of coffee and something else...possibly really sweet caramel? its bitter and different, but not good different. there's maybe a taste of butter? the after-taste is of dark roasted coffee.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-not a great stout. the flavors seem to be oddly off balance to me. this isn't something i'll want again. sweet looking bottle though.

Very dark mahogany brown in the glass. Head flattens out fairly rapidly. Kind of an oily texture with virtually no lacing. Smells like some kind of squash or green vegetable to me.

Cocoa flavor is the main thing. Malty with an alcoholic overtone. Certainly a different kind of coffee from other flavored stouts I've tried, and it's not so bitter. The whole flavor is quite smooth. Only modestly bitter with no flowery hops apparent. The coffee does provide the aftertaste along with a winey flavor. This is not quite like anything I've had before, but perhaps it's an improvement on the all too frequent "dregs of last week's coffee" taste.

From the 12 oz bottle.
