Had this a couple of years ago and thought my initial rating must have been wrong but it was not. This is not a very complex beer. Sure it has a strong black coffee taste but you won't taste much of anything else. And coffee stouts are some of my favorites. Had this on draft at the same time as Founders Breakfast Stout and there was really no comparison. So many better coffee stouts available that I won't have this one again. If you want a really good coffee stout try Jackie O's Java the Stout.

Description: Dark black with a small amount of coffee colored head. The smell is coffee. A lot of coffee. And not much else. Like the smell, the taste is dominated by coffee all the way through with not too much else going on. Feel is medium, which means it's a bit on the light side for a stout.

Suggested food pairing: Chocolate cake

If you like this beer then you should also try: Sumatra Brown

Overall: 3.75 (This beer is good but I would not likely drink it again) Pretty straightforward. It's a coffee stout and delivers what it promises as far as that goes. But there's nothing really special about this that would set it apart or make it memorable.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Pours a thick, opaque black with a mocha head. Coffee dominates the nose and the palate of this beer (almost overwhelmingly so). There's a little less subtlety to the flavor profile than I would like, but ins gesamt, it holds its own. It's a very cohesive beer - one that embraces its coffee fetish and runs with it well.
