A: Almost completely black with some light getting through the edge showing garnet and good clarity. The long lasting, medium tan head is made of rocky foam.

S: My initial impression is that of coffee and cream with some chocolate and a small shot of Kahlua. It smells pretty good for a coffee beer which is promising. No hops aroma detected. A light fig fruitiness and some caramel malt aroma.

T: The taste is matches the nose with big time coffee and cream with a some chocolate and enough alcohol to give the impression of a short shot Kahlua. There is a light hops bitterness and no flavor hops. The balance is slightly to the sweet with a medium malt sweetness. The finish is off dry with a roasty bitterness and chocolate aftertaste.

M: A medium-full body with moderately-light carbonation. There is a light creaminess and a touch of alcohol warmth.

O: This is at the sweeter end of the American style but a very well done coffee stout.
This one would be great with dessert or at dinner with a coffee dust steak.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Dark black, minimal mocha head with virtually zero lacing. Head fades fast into a ring around glass.

S- Not a whole lot of coffee and chocolate which I was expecting. Subtle malt sweetness undertones.

T- Coffee, roasted malts, toffee and a tad bit of chocolate.

M- Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy up front and ends dry.

O- A decent beer. Not a whole lot of coffee flavor but the brew seems to be balanced nicely and is enjoyable.

Look is dark brown amber, almost black, mocha head. Smell is not what I expected, red ale, apricots, ripe fruit, I have to strain to pick up the expected coffee/cocoa. Taste is much better, heavy on the bitter coffee, but not without roasted hazelnut, toffee, and cocoa. The red ale taste hits near the finish. The feel is creamy, smooth, and full.

I enjoyed this one much more than I expected. Becoming a fan of Lakefront, between this and their IPA.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Black in color with no almost no head and minimal lacing.

Smell- Faint aroma of coffee and chocolate.

Taste- Light flavor of bitter coffee with roasted malt notes and some chocolate.

Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied. Smooth and creamy with a slightly dry finish. Light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Not a terrible beer, but if you are going to advertise as a coffee flavored stout I would expect a stronger coffee flavor (or stout flavor).
