Stone Imperial Stout was limited release. It's a truly huge beer. Massive flavours, aromas (and ABV). Very strong dark coffee aromas and flavours.

I'm a huge fan of Stone's Smoked Porter. Since I'm not drinking alcohol anymore, I have only my memories.

I don't feel so bad about railroading a dead 2005 thread with coffee beer stuff,
but I had what I consider the best coffee beer ever just a few days ago.  

It was the Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout.
I split a bottle of the Yeti Oak Aged Espresso Imperial Stout tonight with
a friend.  Splitting it was nice, since it was a $15 bottle of brew, but I could
have split this bottle four ways and still been satisfied.  Drinking half a
large 22oz. bottle of that intense, thick, dramatic brew is quite a feat.  A 6
ounce glass would have been enough.  It was hard to tell where the roasty malt
ended and the espresso started.  They balanced it well. This beer seemed to have
quite a few of my favorite flavors-chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and roasty malt.
The oak was also nice to add a bit of a bite.

It is rare that I find a coffee beer (where you can actually taste the coffee)
that I like.  The Espresso Oak Yeti seems to have a quality coffee taste.
Schlafly had a coffee stout that I tasted about two years ago from a growler
they brought to the pub.  It was also an excellent brew with good coffee taste.

Um....what's with the beer? can we get back to coffeeeee??  ;)  haha! jk
I just found this topic...and when I first looked at the picture of the Treuh, I thought it looked nearly identical to the Synesso Cyncra I used to work with
at a coffee shop here. And then someone said the website for the Treuh is www.synesso.com. So it is manufactured by Synesso?
I remember reading David Schomer's article about the Synesso, too, and its temperature stablility. So then, the Treuh must be even better?

Oh, and when I clicked on that link to the synesso site, it's a page about their newest machine: the Hydra.  Did they change the name? I just want to make sure I have this all straight!

OH MY GOD! I'm an idiot. I just realized that this post was started back in 2004..... at which time (I just found out, after reading an article about Synesso inc. on their webpage) the company started out with the name "Trueh" but that ended and they chose the name Synesso. HAHA! Wow.
Ok, nevermind then - I've already read that article, and already worked with the machine!! hehe. I need to start paying attention to how old these topics are (which I should have noticed from the above reply about the beer and this being a dead 2005 thread) duhh
