Deep dark brown with foamy, big bubbled head and decent retention. Dirty, old coffee ground aroma. Thin, watery coffee flavor. Pleasant coffee linger and finish. Thin, light carbonation and biting acidity.

Unfortunately, this beer is meant to showcase a coffee but didn't give it enough of a backbone to support the flavor. It has a terrible aroma of day old coffee grounds. There is a good coffee flavor but without anything to go along with it it tastes like an alcoholic iced coffee.

What am I drinking, water? Hardly passable as a stout.

Way too thin...burnt/bitter taste, not roasty/robust. Not a pleasant coffee aftertaste. Bland for the most part, very disappointing to this particular palate.

Pours a dark kola hue with a fast vanishing one finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is strong coffee with tobacco and port,the mouthfeel is light bodied and over carbonated with tastes of chocolate,coffee,tobacco and finished with a roasted malty sweetness and overall it's average and would not buy again cheers.

Pours a solid three fingers of very dark brown foam, while frothy with many larger bubbles the retention is credible and long lasting, the lacing comes in fairly thick streaks but this tends to slide away swiftly. At first glance the liquid seems black but it is likely the darkest shade of brown possible, completely opaque, no visible bubbles, no hint of other coloration at the rims. The nose is quite roasty with a heavy emphasis on the coffee, quite milky too, black fruits and raisins, oatmeal and other sweeter baking grains, splash of mineral water, overall it’s not that sugary but likewise it does not have a noticeable hoppy charge to it either. Full-bodied, dense and reluctant to move freely, it has a strong drying effect on the mouth, to the point where it impairs the flavors. Coffee, powdered dark chocolate and a hint of molasses yet no core of sweetness, the plum, cherry fruit diminished and no citric nor floral element. The minor doughy breadiness helps. Carbonation is low but not absent. Some chicory notes at the end. Smooth but the dustiness adds to its lack of flow and slightly dilute ending. Not horrible but nothing I would purchase a second time.

Pours black with a half inch thick beige head. Smell of fresh ground coffee and roasted malt. Taste of cold coffee, roasted malt and a just a tiny bit of tart sour. It has a light to medium (more on the light side) body with a moderate mouth feel. Like others I agree this is more like a porter then a stout but it is well done (which is why I scored it low as a stout).

Good aroma. Weak across the board beyond that. I could list 20 beers, same style, that are superior.
