Poured from a 12oz bottle into an Ommegang tulip.

Hefty pour left only a 1'', quickly dissipating, collar of foam. It looked pretty thin too. Opaque, almost a dark autumn amber. When I returned to my seat I realized that I could smell the deep roasted malt and quality coffee from 3 feet away! Very inviting! The taste wasn't what I would expect from the style, almost espresso like. If coffe is your style, then this is your beer. The mouthfeel was disappointing. Thin, and free of any carbonation. Overall a mediocre brew. I would, however, strongly recommend it to my friends who love that that in-your-face coffee taste.

Good beer overall. Coffee smell is great, but a little off in the taste. A little too thin for my taste in stouts.

A good thin coffee stout. Not really much else to say, it's low ABV and mouthfeel make more like a coffee Porter. It's not bad at all, just not very complex.

Nice roasted malt and coffee flavors. Light carbonation, with a smooth mouthfeel. All in all a tasty brew. I don't know if I would seek this out to purchase on its own, but I always enjoy the two bottles that come in Lakefront's "box of beer."

Not a bad coffee stout, I have had better versions though. If you are really into organic products though, this is the way to go.

Will not seek out and purchase again. Good, but there are other coffee stouts that I can get much easier.
