Dammit I trade too much with Midwestern peeps, I can't even remember who threw this in as an extra but thank you! Dark brown pour, thin tan head 1/3". Aroma smacks heavily of coffee, dat boi did good. Roasted malt, not heavy underneath that.

The coffee continues to drop first and foremost in the taste. Not an overly thick stout, some would say watery or thin, but its just a normal regular ass coffee stout, not an imperial thick sludge barrel aged one. Not thin, just not heavy and thick. Reasonable. Good use of chocolate malt. Could be called a porter. Whateva.

So I guess this one is gonna come in above the median rating. I guess locals don't know what they got, since this isn't something you need to Chicago pour, it doesn't rate as highly as it should. Or maybe its not rare. I think its simply a very good coffee beer that I would crush with regularity if it was around here.

One of my all time favourite beers in general, I absolutely love coffee stouts. I taste a slight amount of chocolate as well. Dark brown, coffee smell, coffee stout taste, and a nice carbonated but not too carbonated mouthfeel.

Starts off promising, but quickly goes down hill. Too much carbonation, very thin mouth feel and lacking flavor. Far from fantastic, but definitely not undrinkable.

Pours a dark chocolate color with an aroma of coffee and some roasted malts. Flavor is coffee and roasted malts. There's a touch of bitterness from the coffee. This actually drinks pretty light and the mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall the is a solid beer but a little lighter than you would think by looking at it.

Pours black in color with a slightly f khaki colored head. Aroma is of malts and coffee. Lots of coffee actually. It's flavor follows suit (more coffee). It is medium bodied. Good flavor, good beer, but relatively basic.

Bought a 4 pack of pint cans.

Look: very dark brown, thin tan head, light lacing
Smell: delicious coffee smell, hint of chocolate
Taste: chocolate & coffee, mildly bitter aftertaste
Feel: medium bodied & lightly carbonated. Very drinkable.

Overall: very enjoyable stout. I'll definitely be buying this again.
