Very good dark coffee flavor. Not bitter and very smooth.

This is an excellent stout. Can taste the coffee, but not overpowering. Like any really good stouT, tastes better warmer

Coffee is one of my favorite beverages. I drink regular coffee in the morning and can now get coffee in beer in the evening! Yay!

Ash a new coffee offering for me, I simply am elated to say the least, one of the greatest styles of all time, this was no exception as this was simply a stunning beer. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 10/25/2009.
 
The pour was damn near perfect with a rich dark brown tone and a huge coffee colored head that just reached a height of around two inches before settling down with tons of side lacing a huge pillow of brown that settled on the top nearly perfectly. Aroma dripping of coffee, richer brewed coffee with hints of light chocolate and milk sugar, really sweet and well brewed I have to say, Warming only served to bring out even more flavors of crisp coffee notes and light touches of vanilla. As I reach in for the sip I am floored. Liquid gold right here. Smooth and rich feel to it gave it the ultimate in coffee flavor. Super rich fresh brewed coffee and vanilla flavors just wash over the tongue with wonderful ease. Rich, decadent dessert like flavors here. Warming only brings them out even more. Simply stunning. Rich feel with near perfect carbonation only lends to the legend here,
 
Overall this was hands down one of the best coffee beers I have ever tried I would go for this one again in a heartbeat, any day of the week. Amazing stuff.
