3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours a tawny cola brown with a fizzy, bubbly tan head. Tastes like strong dark and burnt coffee, syrupy sweetness. Strange flavor. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like old, burnt, musky coffee and dirt.

Sample pour at a festival. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, light spice, and mixed nuts. Flavor is dry, roast malts, chocolate, espresso, and light earthy bitterness; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes: had on draft at Craft and Growler. Pours a dark oil like black with tan head. Coffee bean, espresso, chocolate, and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice coffee flavor. At times it was almost like a dark chocolate covered espresso bean flavor came through. Very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A rather dry, toasted soy/coffee roast aroma. Inky, with a big head. The beer was lightly nutty sweet, but I didít get this as a sweet stout at all. Will need to resample with a clearer palate. Parlay Sports Bar, fighting requests to go up and sing karioke with LuckyDog.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice little coffee sweet stout, a bit of astringency and the coffee flavor is far from amazing but itís certainly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
d.b.a., Brooklyn tap: Pours black with a creamy head. Aroma is freshly brewed coffee and plenty of it, along with some nice milky sweetness, a bit of chocolate, as well. Taste is sweet and coffee-full. Very much brewed coffee taste rather than grounds. Pretty smooth. Pretty balanced. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at World of Beer. Good creamy off white head with tons of lacing. Strong coffee aroma. A little thin for a milk stout. Strong coffee flavors up front with a sweet milky finish. Overall a solid brew. I would like more coffee bitterness to be present.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Whole Foods Schaumburg. Dark brown pour thatís seemingly still in the glass. Frothy khaki head reduces to a tapioca collar. Very faint smoky coffee roast fragrance. Taste is a little bit of a let down after reading the description. You have to hold the beer in your mouth for a few seconds before you taste cold brewed coffee. Other than that, itís a thin, mildly roasty and mildly hoppy beer. Clean finish and I probably wouldíve guessed dark lager in a blind taste.

Draft. poured black with a light tan head. Not much of an aroma. What i did get was light coffee. Taste was weak cola and a hint of sweet vanilla.
