This beer pours a dark black with a very nice foamy head. A picturesque stout. The disappointment started at the nose; I expected cappuccino or at least some hints of coffee. Unfortunately, I felt that this beer feel short in this regard.

As far as the taste goes, this beer did not deliver for me. I was expecting richness and heartiness and it was more flat and (I hate to say it) "commercial" tasting. It seemed to be a little conservative.

This beer was exceptionally smooth for a stout and I find it to be sessionable.

Overall, I feel this beer fell short comparatively in a very competitive category of beer. Having sampled so many phenomenal coffee/cappuccino stouts recently, this one just does not compare.

First bluemoon in quite awhile. Probably my last for quite awhile.
Thin, watery mouthfeel. Lots of bready yeast on the back. Slight Sweet & Low flavor? Haunting stale coffee flavor. Where are the Cappuccino characteristics?! No froth.. no latose..no creaminess. No mouthfeel. No froth character. No head retention. Oats were used? You sure?
This is a bad Coffee Porter at best.

Bottle to pint glass. Look is Dark black, no head, just some slight bubbles at the surface. Aroma is coffee, toasted grains. Taste is coffee, ginger, toast. Some blackberry and other dark sour fruit comes late. Feel is syrup like. Minimal carbonation. Feels more like a porter. Very drinkable, but nothing special.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Thin looking cola brown body with a soda-tan head that recedes instantly. No lacing.

Aroma: Faint sweet cocoa and bitter black coffee.

Taste: Decaf coffee?? Bitter coffee grounds blending with a spicy, minty kind of powdered chocolate.

Mouthfeel: As thin and lively as a carbonated soda. Very, very thin.

Overall: Extrenely watered down and disappointing all around.

Bottle poured into a globe glass.

Look is black with a very small tan head.

Smell is actually better than the taste , smells like a nice oatmeal with very light cappuccino background.

Taste is a bit disappointing as you might expect from a macro stout. The oatmeal goes away and it mostly taste like stale coffee with a pretty good bit of alcohol coming thru and that's about it.

Feel is very watery for a stout.

Overall it's not undrinkable but I certainly wouldn't look for it to buy again.

A lot of smells, but the taste was bad. Not a wheat, not a cappucino, not a stout, nothing of each. Poured it down the drain.

Look: It pours dark brown with a tan head that doesn't have good head retention.

Smell: It has the aroma of chocolate and coffee.

Taste: There are flavors of coffee, cocoa, some roast, low caramel, and a grassy element in the background.

Feel: It has a moderate body and a bit of corn in the aftertaste. It is fairly well carbonated.

Overall, it a malt driven coffee and cocoa flavored beer with some grass in the background.

Before you review something you have some expectations. All I expect is drinkable.

Coke a Cola dark brown with a small tan colored head.

Smells smoky and of coffee, it does in fact smell like a stout. Coffee is scent is like an Italian coffee soda. Milder scet of caramel candy.

Starts out fairly dry and tasting of Italian coffee soda, just less sweet. Bitterness level is low. Pretty much just that, coffee soda.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall drinkable, think of it ass Coors + Coffee.
