    Cafe Royale. I had high expectations before I tried it and it still impressed me.

    Prob already been said, but Epic Big Bad Baptist and Right Brain CEO Stout have some pronounced coffee flavor/aroma to them.

    This is the clear answer but I will say that TAPS Balinese coffee stout was amazing

    and if you havent had Beachwood Brewing Mocha Machine, that beer will bring your beans something fierce.

    Well I'm super late to the game but my picks from what I've had lately would be:

    Harder to get - BCBCS 2010
    Easier to get - Evolution Rise Up Stout

    I was just about to say this. This is the newest coffee beer I had, and it's a hell of a brew. There's a bit of an appearance/taste discrepancy because you expect coffee beers to be dark, but this was great stuff. I imagine this is what Dayman would taste like if it cut out 70% of the hops.

    Enjoy Kona Pipeline, especially since it's dirt cheap compared to what's available here for Coffee brews (and that makes it taste better)

    Last night I had Uinta Labyrinth on tap for the first time. Absolutely delicious beer. It was somewhere between Wheaton W00tStout(which doesn't get enough cred on this site), and BCBS.

    Tried a Local Option Morning Wood last night - excellent balance in a somewhat lighter coffee ale. Two Brothers has a coffee version of its French Country Ale, called French Press. Cheers!

    great coffee flavor, and an interesting lighter body than the coffee stouts...

    and I think my peruvian morning's are infected. not amazed by them.. briskly fizzy and almost tart.

    Peruvian Morning and KBS are obvious choices, but the best non-obvious/new coffee beer I've had lately was Central Waters' Brewhouse Coffee Stout. I didn't expect to like it much, since I lean heavily toward barrel-aged stouts and Brewhouse isn't aged at all, but it has a really strong, smooth, clean coffee taste to it, like no other coffee beer I've had. I'll definitely be buying it again.

    I was there last night and had some. Might be the best batch I've had. Seriously. While the maple was probably the most subtle of the ingredients; the bacon and coffee were quite strong. Very cool bluegrass duo played too. Enjoy!!

    Yeah that beer is so good!
    Thicker than Zhukov, sweetness and coffee....my god.
    I'm just happy a keg made it to S. Florida, didn't think I'd be lucky enough to try it ever.

    Everytime someone asks this question, my answer is Peche Mortel

    It's because I've always had it recently, and it's always my favorite.

    I had a local offering recently that tasted like really watered down espresso.... that was....pretty cool.....


    On a more serious note however I'd have to go with Espresso Oak Aged Yeti, that is pure win in a bottle if you ask me. If you haven't tried this beer then you need to.
