    What are some good brews that taste like coffee? The stronger the better!

    Goose Island BCBCS. Just had my first bottle on NYE. HOLY SHIT! Coffee Heaven. Use that to wash down some chocolate style desert and it's pure heaven.

    FBS is all you need. Coffee Bender is a solid choice.

    No one has mentioned Kona's Pipeline Porter. I'll be damned if that didnt have more coffee taste than Lagunitas's Cappuccino Stout.

    Cigar City Brewing here in Tampa makes some pretty wild coffee tasting beers. I'm always unsure if I should get a buzz or be caffeinated haha.

    It's seasonal. There should be a new batch soon, if not already as the last batch we had was bottled in December of 2011.
