Poured from a bottle into a schooner, the beer is jet black and creamy thick on the pour, with a low profile, light tan head. Aromas of rich roasted coffee, dark and bitter, with subtle highlights, both earthy and creamy, providing depth on the nose. Flavors are bitter roasted coffee forward, with slight creamy sweet notes blending throughout. Earthy and woody highlights in there, as well. Smooth, creamy, light body, with a coffee bitter aftertaste. Smooth, slow, finish with a solid coffee linger. Good beer.

Thin head but nice coffee and root beer flavor. Not overwhelming with coffee taste and a nice soft carbonation.

Look; Deep black with almost no head. A thin ring of mocha scrim rings the glass just 30 seconds after the initial pour.
Smell; Wow, this smells like a great cup of coffee. Rich and roasty.
Taste; Coffee of course, but nicely integrated with the malt base. Sweet more than bitter and very tasty.
Feel; Silky smooth.
Overall; A very enjoyable Stout, especially if you are a coffee lover.

Pours dark black with an aggressive pour needed to coax a quarter inch beige head. That head ran away like a schoolkid asked to spend a night in the old haunted mansion on the hill and left no trace that it was ever there. It smells straight up like a sweetened french roast iced coffee. The taste is the same but with the malt showing up and at least making taste like a beer. The finish is sweet and coffee bitterness. I wish there were a little hop bitterness to cut through the sugared coffee taste but if you are looking for a beer that is all coffee and less beer than this is the one for you.

12oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger light mocha colored head with moderate retention. Beer is pitch black but thin. Lacing is spotty and stringy with moderate to low stick and thin, wide legs. Decent.

Nose is coffee, roasted malt, a touch of tartness and some dark chocolate. Very aromatic. Aroma is right on point.

Opens coffee, lactose, chocolate and roasted malt. Some smokiness in the middle mixed with more chocolate and some mocha. Ends lactose sweetness mixed with some fudge, honey and milk chocolate. Really delicious!

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Silky smooth in the mouth and goes down slightly dry with just a touch of bubbles. Finishes soft with a lightly lingering aftertaste. Excellent!

In a world of Imperial this and Double that, this subtle little coffee stout really comes through. Great balanced flavor with an excellent mouthfeel. I could drink cases of this stuff!

Aggressive pour with copious light brown head and deep brown body. Light effervescence. Smells strongly of espresso, carob, coconut and roasted malts. Tastes of dark roast coffee with a hint of unsweetened chocolate moving into a malty molasses sweetness, some caramel with a bit of smoke and smooth transition to a rather clean finish. Medium bodied with a good amount of effervescence (surprising for a stout).
Overall, a very well balanced and smooth coffee stout – might make for a great eye opener on a Monday morning meeting. . . solid beer and I would pick up again.
