Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It arrives black with a thin tan head. Has rich coffee aromas and flavors with an astringent coffee finish. The coffee comes in on two levels – from the roast malts and from the added coffee and it is interesting to taste how they interweave on your palate.

Bottle from kjyost, 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours pretty much black, dirty dark brown head. Moderate lacing, and light retention. Nose has a beautiful coffee bouquet, creamy, vanilla and medium roast coffee. Some coffee cake/bread, mild hazelnut, good sweetness over a gentle roast. Almost smells like snickerdoodle cookies a bit. Very nice here. Taste is a bit lighter, but still fantastic coffee flavours. Lightly roasty, nutty, creamy and mild bitterness. Touch of tartness. Medium light feel, and relatively low carbonation. Really nice coffee stout, one of the better ones in recent memory.

A: Quite black with a dark brown head--somewhat thin but steady--and lacing is great

S: Lots of dark roasted coffee--nearly espresso; some other dark fruits mingle with the coffee including the cherry; some subtle booze notes finish the aromas fairly nicely

T: A dry bitter coffee stout and I really like it; so roasty with chocolate and coffee taking the show with just a touch of dark fruits behind

F: Creamy and rather thick--nice body for a bigger stout like this

O: I am really impressed by this beer; one of my favorites from them; really a solid roasty coffee stout

A: Pours black as night. I was surprised. Basically NO head for a beer that isn't that high in ABV. Nothing. Swirl causes a touch.

S: I get lots of coffee but that is really it initially. I was planning on pulling some dark cherry hints in there, but it's really just roasted coffee.

T: I get a good amount of coffee bitterness up front on the tongue. I don't taste a sweetness, at all. It's a lot of coffee and roast.

M: Full bodied stout.

On tap at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis.

A nice pour into a pint glass yielded a half-inch of dark khaki foam over a opaque used oil brown-black body.

Roasted coffee and malt, chocolate comprise the nose.

More delicious coffee in the taste, along with roasted barley malt, chocolate. Some sense of dried dark fruits, not cherries. Slight sweetness is cut, and the finish is nice and dry. Good carbonation and a medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Coffee bean bitterness lingers into the long, dry finish. If you like coffee, you'll like this. It's not cherry flavored.

Thanks to Jakers90 for the bottle. Served in a tulip.

Pours near-black with a thin light tan head that quickly subsides into a thin collar without leaving more than a spot or two of lace behind. The nose has a slight cherry presence along with a good dose of coffee and roast. Flavor has a nice combination of cherry and roast, finishing with some dark chocolate. Body is medium to a slightly-dry finish. Pretty good.
