Got this one last summer, but can't remember who from. Cheers to the mystery trader!

From a bottle into a snifter
Brewed in October 2010

APPEARANCE: Pours a really thin, transparent brown and produces a small, looser looking, light tan head with lousy retention. Transparent dark brown body with no carbonation evident. Head fades to a slight wisp, but only a ring remains until the end and leaves no lacing down the glass. Way too thin, and head was lack luster.

SMELL: Coffee is there, some light notes of sweet cream and roasted malts. Mild, but nothing is wrong per se.

TASTE: Better than the nose for sure. Roasted and coffee notes with some nice sweet cream and vanilla at the swallow. Bolder and lingering aftertaste of roasted malts, bitter roasted coffee and a touch of vanilla sweetness. Not bad.

PALATE: Slightly thinner body with higher levels of carbonation. Light on the palate, slightly creamy, goes down alright but burns a touch at the swallow and finishes a touch mouth-coating. A little light and thin for the style.

OVERALL: There were a lot of things missing in this beer, but luckily the flavor was enjoyable enough. Really too light and thin for the style. In all honesty, I've yet to be impressed with any Central Waters stuff, but I still hold out hope. Thanks again.

Beer sent by laymansbeerfan, I love me some coffee stout. 12oz bottle states that it was brewed in October, served in a pub nonic.

A: Dark brown with transparent blood red hues, two solid fingers of creamy light tan head had decent retention and leaves some solid lacing.

S: Coffee and chocolate dominate, lighter roast characters, toasted grains, bits of sweetness, faint nuttiness and earthiness.

T: More of the same as the nose, coffee and definite dark malt, breadiness, toasted grains and nuts, some earthy hops maybe, faint caramel and mocha, roast on the finish.

MF: Dry finish, medium body, aftertaste is coffee & coffee grounds.

O: Surprised by how much breadiness there was in this beer. Its a decent coffee stout but not my favorite. Don't know how the age affected this one.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head that recedes into a wisp. Very light lacing.

Smells of coffee some roasted malt and a touch of smoke.

Tastes like coffee as well. Not a ton of other flavors here. There is some good roasty malt and a touch of smoke, but it lacks body and I don't get much beyond the slightly astringent coffee.

Too light for my liking for a stout. If this were creamier, it could be something great.

I love coffee stouts and there's certainly nothing wrong with this one, but it's kind of one note and lacks body to really put it over the edge. I'd rather go for an FBS when I'm in the mood for coffee.
