Poured a pretty oily and viscous pitch black. Which is a pleasant surprise as I find most coffee added stouts are thinned out. Nice foamy mocha colored head with good retention and spotty lacing.

Nose is quite nice. Full of dark nutty oatmeal right off the bat with robust fresh coffee beans. Great coffee bean smell as opposed to coffee.

Coffee is most prominent in the flavor which is great. Also brown sugar oatmeal, roasted nuts and a bit of molasses. Very pleasant coffee lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is great. Very creamy smooth. Full bodied which is great for a coffee stout. Medium carbonation.

Overall this is a very well made coffee stout! Wish I had constant access to this.

Big thanks to rbradley for this one. 2011 12oz vintage into a tulip.

A- Pours midnight black with a finger of dark mocha-colored head that fades to a few wisps. Leaves minimal lacing, but a thick brown film accompanied by some alcohol legs. Nice looking stout.

S- Smells like an iced coffee. Nice roasted coffee bean presence that mingles with smooth, sweet vanilla tones. Not picking up a ton of chocolate, but there is a bit of a powdery milk chocolate note in there.

T- Big coffee out of the gates. Roasted earthy notes mix with a bigger chocolate presence than the nose suggested. More of a semi-sweet type of chocolate. Tastes of vanilla and liquid brownie finish off the sip with a lingering bitterness.

M- Medium bodied, but feels like the carbonation is a bit high here which detracts from the feel. Makes it appear thinner than it really is.

O- I really like this brew, but I feel like I need more from the nose for it to be great in my opinion. Maybe the flavors were a bit more intense when really fresh?

Enjoyed this with a friend two weekends before finals in Oxford Ohio, got it from a trade.

This was the wake and bake series and poured motor oil black into a tulip glass. The smell was a bit off from what I expected, (which might have been due to a colder than usual refrigerator) but the taste was more than compensatory. Strong espresso, a hint of oaky musk and slightly boozy finish. Rich mouth feel that coats the tongue and cheeks. I heard this doesn't age as well as I would have thought, but I wish I had another to see for myself. Overall great beer.

Vintage: 2011

A: Jet black with a two finger khaki head.

S: Big roasted coffee notes and a subtle vanilla character.

T: A nice roasted coffee flavor is present up front that follows with a mild bitterness, which is offset by a malty sweetness out the back.

M: Exceptionally smooth.

O: Coffee based stouts are usually hit or miss with me. This one really hit the spot. The coffee is showcased well in the nose, and perfectly in the taste. A must try for coffee lovers.

12oz bottle (2011) into a snifter. Pours a deep dark black w/ a thick tan head.

Aroma is bitter dark coffee and chocolate. Has a slightly over-roasted, burnt smell too. Hints of dark fruits and nuts when swirled.

Taste is bitter, roasted coffee and cocoa.

Mouthfeel is coating but still smooth and light, with a strong bitter aftertaste.

Overall a good coffee stout but perhaps lacks some of the finesse and complexity found in the best ones.
