    Clear dark ruby, brown lacing foam head. Strong coffee aroma, coffee taste, chocolate tones. Light bitter aftertaste turning to coffee in time. Nice beer. (Houston 201505)

    probably my favorite new beer from Canfest 2014 - a stout mix of roasted coffee and chocolate, with light hops and toffee. Slick, medium to full feel with a lingering roasty finish.

    The explosion of breweries coming to south Florida is amazing. This a new one. And what a treat. Tarlike blackness in color. Two fingered creamy textured light tan head rising above. Settles into a disappointingly non existent ringlet. In nose and in tasting the profile is intense dark chocolate, bitter coffee and smoky malt, all well crafted. Full bodied and smooth. U liked.

    This might be the best stout that I've never heard of. And it comes in a can. Rich smoky flavors, and as it warmed, it was bursting with dark chocolate and dry coffee. The mouthfeel was so full and smooth. Pitch black...no translucency and a thick layer of sudsy tan foam that did not stay and chat. I am really glad my friend left one of these in my fridge. Now the question is:where can I get more of them? Must keep a lookout for this brewery.

    This beer is not one of my favorite stouts. It does have a great sweet and malty smell but the taste is a little week and a little watery. This beer pours a dark black with a tan head that does not hang around to long. The flavor tasted watered down and almost flat in a way. I tried to even pair it with chocolate but it did not help the flavor. I was hoping for this beer to be better but it let me down.

    Has a rich, smoky aroma like quality roast coffee with undertones of caramel and molasses. It pours a warm, opaque sable with a fairly thick and fluffy pale tan head. Smoky flavor has tones of coffee, molasses, toffee and caramel with a nice touch of hoppy bitterness. Texture is smooth with a fairly fine fizz to it. Finish is smoky, tingly and slightly hoppy.

    Can from kinger. Pours a deep brown with a slight tan head and some lacing. Toasted malts, cocoa, nuts and some coffee in the aromas. Taste is chocolaty, malty nut goodness with a slight kick in the end. Very nice stout. Thanks Cory.

    Four pack of cans makes for a happy man. Amber brown pour with a depleting tan head that ultimately settles to 1/4" in thickness and leaves some spotty lacing in it's path. Big nutty, chocolaty, roasted malt aroma with a demanding dose of coffee. On the thin and fizzy side for a beer like this, balanced with a mildly creamy finish that's a touch dry. Flavor resembles the aroma only the mouth feel detracts from the enjoyment ever so slightly. Nice offering.

    Mathmatically works out to '8.75' and that's about right... this is what stout's all about. Poured black with a decent tan head that produced some absofreakinglutely phenomenal lacing. Roated malt and coffee flavors with a much-desired creaminess. Perfect for an evening after a freaking early morning monsoon and hail storm followed by a freeze-your-ass-off trek out to Sea World in 20-something MPH winds. Yeah, I was there this past Saturday... man alive!

    Pours a darkish brown, as in a brown ale, with a small which slowly recedes. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. The roasted malts seem to be the dominant flavor, with hints of coffee and chocolate. It has a bit of creaminess on the palette, but is sort of thin for a stout. Is this some type of hybrid? It actually tastes more like a cross between a stout and a brown ale than a stout. It is quite different than any stout that I have had to date. It goes down real smooth and the alcohol is extremely well hidden. This one is worth a try.
