    One of the only beers I've ever had that I like on nitro. Generally I think nitro ruins beers, but this and Left Hand Milk Stout beg to differ. But yeah, BBC Coffeehouse Porter on nitro is in my god tier of beers.

    Once I try my first Peruvian Morning tomorrow, I'm guessing I'll have more to say about this ;)

    Beachwood Brewing's Tovarish absolutely blew me away.
    Epic's Big Bad Baptist is stellar as well.

    Well this is tough, one of the tougher poll type questions that Ive seen. Im torn between Perkulator, Cubano Espresso, Highland Thunderstruck, Hardywood Sidamo, BCBCS, Wake n Bake, and FBS.

    given that, Id go with Wake n Bake then Cubano, followed very closely by BCBCS.

    I see a lot of things in this post that are not found around here, makes me want to look around and find some of them - I have Founders Breakfast Stout and Terrapin WnB in the fridge, both great but the best I have had is Terrapin Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Possibly best mouth feel and taste of any beer I have tried!

    At this minute Bad Bad Baptist. A coffee bomb, and really great stuff. It says whiskey barrel aged, but it's so soft as to be immaterial, but the coffee is outstanding.

    Lagunitas Cappuccino stout. The coffee is balanced and not overdone.

    Local homer here...
    Speedway Stout and Victory at Sea. Every variation I've tried of either beer, aged or fresh, has been perfection. Special mention to Old Viscosity cuz, Homer's gotta Homer.

    I really enjoyed MacTarnahan's Goose Bump Imperial Stout. I thoroughly enjoyed Goose Bump as an after dinner companion. It was sweetly flavored and kept me wanting more.

    I guarantee if this was more widely available it would be in the top 50, at least. A far better beer than the gospel around here (BCBC and FBS) IMHO!

    Can i put in a vote for espresso yeti? Or Avery's tweak. (formerly Meph addict.) Both are awesome and I really hope Avery bottles this every year going forward.

    Have to disagree. I drank it and thought this tastes like coffee grounds not coffee and after further review it is brewed with grounds

    When I went to CWs 15th anniversary party they had Brewhouse coffee stout on tap and it was hands down the best coffee beer Ive ever had and possibly best beer Ive ever had. Hell, it might be the best coffee Ive ever had.

    I was actually very impressed by Hinterland's Luna coffee stout. Of course, I've had CCB's Cubano Espresso "recently", so that'll have to be the best. Luna's no slouch though.

    I would have to say Central Waters Peruvian Morning, one of my all time favorites and Terrapin Wake n Bake. On a side note the most interesting coffee beer I have drank was Brau Bros. Tim and Eric Awesome Show Double Cherrybean Coffee Stout at Winterfest 2012.
