On tap at Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont; poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - very black, sitting like a shadow in the pint glass. Thin beige head that fades quickly and leaves spotty lacing.
Smell - cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer!
Taste - follows the nose, but a touch watered down.
Feel - medium body with strong cup of coffee feel, but falls light on the finish.
Overall -

On tap at the Tasty Weasel and served in a pint glass. Nice coffee stout, but I was hoping for more. I had this after a BBA G'Night, so maybe my taste buds had already been overwhelmed. I'll just have to come back and try again.

On tap at the Tasty Weasel taproom. Dark black, tan head. Nice aroma of strong coffee grounds. The flavor was more of the same, decent roasty stout flavor but a nice coffee component. Good stuff.

Great coffee nose, just a hint of sweetness. Mostly rich espresso grinds. The taste doesn't quite match that though, as it's a bit more on the sweet side. Still tasty, just lacking a bit of the aggressive coffee flavor I'm looking for. If you like your coffee on the slightly sweet side though, this is for you. The carb & feel are solid, albeit a bit more "zippy" instead of creamy, which I would also prefer. Slight hint of that ashy character that some coffee stouts produce. All-in-all a very solid beer though.

This could be a little more light on the palette. Kind of on the fence between a big beer or a lighter stout. If they took the carbonation up a bit, it would help.

Just felt a little thin for the nose and taste. I'd happily drink again though.

! PINT can
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black with three inches of mocha head that leaves little lacing.

The aroma is coffee as expected.

The flavor is dominated by coffee as well. The taste has more bitterness of black coffee than the nose led me to believe. Black coffee in the aftertaste.

Full mouthfeel

This is not an in your face coffee stout. You know the coffee is there though. It was definitely a pleasure to get the opportunity to try it.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This pours a moderately dark black, with a half inch mocha colored head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like moderate strength coffee, with a little bit of milk chocolate and caramel.

This definitely isn't the boldest coffee stout I've ever had, but it's still tasty. Not overly complex, but still tasty. The coffee flavor is nice and roasty, a little sweet, with some milk chocolate.

This is medium bodied, with a very creamy mouthfeel.

Nice stuff here, very tasty.

A- Medium brown body, one finger white head, good retention, no lacing.

S- Milk chocolate, stale coffee, a bit of cocoa. Roasted malt. Mild metallic aroma.

F- Roasted malt, milk chocolate, no metallic flavours but a bitter cocoa and a fair bit of coffee.

M- Medium bodied though missing a little bit of depth. Good carbonation.

O- Decent coffee stout, nothing to write home about.

The coffee flavor itself is really nice, but i'm getting a slight metallic after taste on the back end which is keeping this from being really exceptional for me.
