12 oz bottle poured into snifter

A: pitch black very small head

S: very light licorice very little coffee

T: sweet licorice a little bit of cocoa very little coffee almost none at all

M: very nice full not viscous but fairly good

O: I like a coffee stout that the stout isn't lost in the coffee, but I'm getting
no to little coffee out of this and an overly sweet one dimensional stout otherwise this beer is mediocre at best.

2013 vintage on tap at Lures Bar & Grille in Crownsville, MD. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors nicely balanced with deep vanilla and some dark fruits. Very smooth and easily my favorite coffee stout to date.

Part of WFM craft pack, this is outstanding.
Suggest a big glass, let it warm, sip slowly. last of the night.

A: Pours black, with a thick finger of milk mocha head, fore bearer of the mocha flavor to come. Good amount of creamy bunching, lacing, and stickiness.

S: Aroma offers a latte coffee or mocha bouquet with a mix of chocolate, caramel, and green citrus.

T: Follows smell, with a more chocolatey, caramel front than most, almost too sweet, but really nothing to argue with. Assertive milky coffee is the finish. Beer finishes dry and burnt roasty, good feeling.

F: The mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy with full alcohol liquorish body and warmth.

Excellent bigger Coffee Stout, with a lot of mocha coffee, emphasis on chocolate. If that's your style, this is your stout.

Pours a deep inky black with a thin mocha head. It goes away quickly and leaves faint soapy lacing. The aroma is a little anemic, with faint coffee notes and deep roasted malt. The taste is a little more robust, offering the same. The body is a little thinner, but still has a nice weight to it and just a slight bit of carbonation.

Okay, so I really don't know what to make of this beer. I'm not sure if I am drinking the regular Kujo coffee stout or one of the many variations made with different beans that are listed on BA.

This was served to me in draft which came with a thin tan head, but dissipated completely away. I tried to revive it, but nothing, no head at all. There was no lacing, but some legs. Pure black in color.

The aroma was a huge mix of burnt coffee, molasses, prunes, red wine, and alcohol.

The taste was of slightly bitter molassas and unsweetened chocolate

Mouthfeel was thick and warming, maybe a bit chewy, but needed some carbonation.

This didn't seem to me a coffee stout, but more reminded me of a well aged barleywine, which is not necessarily a bad thing. For me, this was more of a sipping beer and a single serving would be enough before moving on to something less complex. I also felt the ABV seemed slightly higher than the 8.9. My wife liked it, but I feel I need to try this one again to be certain I didn't get an odd pour.
