A -- pours dark brown w/ tan notes & a nice, creamy head.

S -- I'm biased, because a big-time coffee stout is right in my wheelhouse, but this smells like heaven. Nuttiness, notes of chocolate, and definitely coffee (surprised that some have said they don't really smell it).

T -- The first thing you notice is the roasted notes of a (good) cup of coffee, balanced out with a nice malty sweetness. It ultimately finishes a bit dry, not unlike a good cup of brew, and not unlike something that's 9% ABV and giving you just enough of a hoppy note.

M -- Smooth, drinkable. A little bit of burn on the back end, but that's probably for the best -- no one needs to drink it that fast.

O -- One of my favorites. The newest edition doesn't disappoint.

Very dark. The head had a tan tint to it. I could smell coffee and chocolate, and I think a hint of malt. An amazing taste, a mix of coffee and malt with a roasty aftertaste. I think I picked up a little chocolate in there as well. No alcohol burn. The beer was very easy to sip, maybe a little too easy.

Poured into a New Belgium globe.

A - Wow is this a pretty looking brew. Large dark tan head leaving average lacing. Brew itself is a very dark brown, completely opaque.

S - Roasted coffee, some smooth malts, chocolates and a bit of alcohol.

T - Hits with an initial bit of bitterness and follows with all the notes of the nose. I am also getting a bit of dark fruits and some more creamy espresso blend. As the beer warms I feel the tastes begin to soften and become more delicious!

M - Medium body with a solid malt backbone. Rich and creamy, I cannot imagine any better composition.

O - Overall this is one of my favorite coffee stouts for a variety of reasons. I feel the smooth, somewhat sweet, character of the beer is unique to most coffee stouts. It also remains a true stout, where I feel most coffee infused brews fall a bit short and feel almost empty. If you are a coffee lover I strongly recommend this brew.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours slightly-less-than-opaque dark brown with a hint of red. Finger of head doesn't last long and gives way to also brief lacing.
S- Roasted coffee beans, burned chocolate, bread. Roasted malts make more of an appearance as the beer warms.
T- Coffee, but not a particularly pleasant flavor of coffee, and not strong enough to be Cappuccino, then unsweet chocolate which mingles with a hop bitterness at the finish. Mild hoppy bitterness lingers on the palate. 9% is well concealed.
M- Smooth, but feels thin for the style. Slightly coating and a bit sticky. I'm finding that I'd like some water mid way through.
O- I'll pass on this next time. I'm not impressed and I imagine in a few weeks' time I'll barely remember this beer. Much better offerings of coffee stouts may be had for a couple bucks more.

A - Pours a dark brown to black with a quickly vanishing tan head.

S - Notes of chocolate, coffee/cappuccino and dark fruit (cherries and blackberries)

T - Nice coffee flavor finishing with some hop bitterness. More chocolate on the finish too. Very tasty.

M - Smooth but thin and watery.

O - Another treat from Lagunitas. ABV is very well hidden and this was very easy to drrink on a rainy afternoon.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a snifter.

A-Very dark brown color with a minimal head that leaves the cool looking coffee stout mocha brown ring.

S-roasted coffee and malt and some alcohol.

T-roasted malt flavors with that nice coffee backbone and a alcohol kick.

M-cool and creamy with enough carbonation and body to be a beer first.

O-a steady imperial stout.
