Poured from a 22 oz bottle, 02/01/10 stamped on bottle, Chimay glass

This beer pours with almost no head; I was a little disappointed with this characteristic as I was hoping for a little creamier consistency in the appearance in mouthfeel. The smell and taste are absolutely fantastic; notes of coffee, chocolate, and nuts stood out. The beer finishes very smoothly; it almost tastes more like cold coffee than beer. This beer definitely will please coffee drinkers and is worth a try for fans of this style of beer.

Long Trail Coffee Stout is a black beer with a huge, frothy, brown head that leaves a solid coat on the glass. It looks supreme. It has a strong coffee aroma. It's roasty and almost sweet. It smells great! In the mouth, it's full bodied, fluffy and very smooth. The finish is clean and dry. It has a nice, roasty coffee flavor. It's well balanced and not really sweet or dry. It's really tasty. It's a simple beer that's well done. I should probably go get more of this.

The beer comes in a black color with a creamy tan head.

The aroma is lovely with tons of chocolate and espresso, roasted malt. Almost like a fresh coffee smell.

The flavor follows with espresso and some bittersweet chocolate. The flavor doesn't linger long on the tongue with sweetness. It's a quite easy finish. It really is aggressive with the coffee, which is wonderful.

The highlight of this beer is the lovely creamy mouthfeel and drinkability.

The alcohol is extremely well hidden.

Having had an older bottle of this along with fresh on tap, the older still had that pop of coffee and did not die out.

a beautiful dark brown almost black pour with 2 fingers of tan head that gave off some great lacing. smells of coffee, chocolate, tobacco, dirt, toasted grains, lightly hopped. taste is phenomenal. a perfect breakfast beer.lightly roasted, milky sweet, chocolate malt, coffee flavor.. it's wonderful, really. medium body, nice creamy texture, medium carbonation. silky smooth.
overall this is an excellent stout. slightly on the light side for an imperial stout, but it's all about the flavor with this one.

A) dark dark brown almost black with nice mocha/toffee head

S) good not overbearing coffee aroma with roastiness and a little hint of sweet

T) More coffee than any other coffee stout i've had, definitely at the forefront of the flavor, very little alcohol taste for the abv. The flavor really does follow the smell

M) Fairly thick and creamy but not over heavy

overall: Absolutely delicious. All of the characteristics you want from a good stout alongside some great coffee flavor. Might be LT's best. Really looking forward to what may come of future brewmaster series

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Pitch black with a thick brown three finger head after a gentle pour. Slowly fades to a one finger head. One of the darkest heads I have ever seen on a beer. Excellent sheets of lacing left behind on the glass.

S - Light sweetness with just a hint of coffee. Roasted chocolate and roasted dark malts come through stronger as the beer warms.

T - Very mellowed seetness initially along with hints of fresh roasted coffee. Bittersweet chocolate and just a touch of dark fruit provide the backbone. Coffee becomes stronger as the beer warms but it never becomes overwhelming.

M/D - Medium to full bodied with a silky smooth feel. Very easy drinking imperial stout. A perfect touch of coffee without being too overwhelming.

This beer pour a thick opaque black - there is NO light passing through this bad boy! About a one finger of light brown head to it. Head retention is ok - recedes to a film that remains through the entire beer with thick lacing.

Nose is of mild coffee, roasted and caramel malts, some cream and a bit of alcohol. Taste is coffee upfront followed by a creaminess and finish with caramel. The first few sips also lent to picking up the taste of alcohol but after a few sips, that was no longer apparent.

Mouthfeel is pretty thick and creamy, moderate carbonation which lightens it up a bit and has a pretty dry finish to it. This is a nice stout.
