I usualy like an Oatmeal Stout, but this tasted of burnt grains and old Starbucks french roast coffee! I didn't even notice anything about the hops!! The Brewmaster's here may still have a good idea though, try differing coffee's in the mix or less coffee.

I'm also not a fan of these new caffenated alchohol drinks I see in 7-11, they just encourage wide awake drunks!

Wow, what a disappointment. I like Troegs, this is the first brew I've tried from them that I didn't like. Beer is just "thin". Doesn't look like a stout, pours dark brown with a thin light tan head. Smell was weak, mild coffee roast with background of sweet malts but nothing stood out. Tasted "weak", no full flavors. The mouthfeel was the worst, almost watered down...more like a cheap lager style.

Aroma-roasted nut and coffee

Appearance-Black/Nice head/Good retention/nice lacing

Flavor-at first malty then bitter then soapy/all in all kinda gross

Mouthfeel-Too much carbontaion for any stout/dry/ bitter/makes you salivate/couldn't get past the soapy after taste

Drinkability-Absolutly didn't like/the after tast stuck with it and didn't wash away/will never drink this again

Looks great with a nice head. has a nice thick feel of a good quality stout however it was too bitter considering the coffee flavor and aroma was missing or just overpowered by the hops. I would never turn one down however it would not be a beer I will return to on my own accord.

Got this as a housewarming gift.

Black with a thin, muddy, tan head. Eh retention leaves some foamy ledges. Neat bottle art.

Smells predominately of unattenuated sugar. Mild citrus hop and mild coffee--kinda smells like tree bark tea. Or at least what I think tea made of tree bark would smell like.

Wow, this is really bland. Again, unattenuated sugar, watery gas station coffee, and watery hot chocolate (the sugar-free, fat-free kind) with some citrus hops peeking up in back. Tea-like sour.

Honestly, this is one of the blandest beers I've ever had. It's not terrible, it's not really anything. It doesn't have a strong coffee quality. It doesn't have a strong stout quality. If anything it reminds me of a really bland English brown. I thought that maybe it doesn't age well, but it's only 3 months old--max.

I received this bottle about a month ago from a friend who is always tring to unload Pennsylvania beers on me....
Poured in to a Samuel Smith pint glass while I was keeping to dog from eating the cat...'s food Yeah she was trying to eat the cat's food....6 inches of thick beige ish foam that is proving wonderful at making Beer moustaches on a blacker than my soul base!

It smells like packed away laundry...it has a slight floral note under a smack in the nose of must and maybe a hint of cedar chest
This beer has no real flavor if you don't practically gargle with it and then all it does is burn the skin off of your uvula....Then after you swallow the party is basically over....unless you are in to a burning uvula and you go back for more. It has some strong bitterness then just a really acidic end with no after taste.
