On tap at the Alchemist 02.05.10 Black in color with a light brown head. Strong aroma of coffee with roast, some caramel. Taste is nice and roasty, with alot of coffee...the coffee dries it out, but it does have enough body to back it up. Coffee bitterness and flavor lingers nicely in the finish. Very nice.

In short: A tasty, very roasted, dry and bitter coffee stout. Very nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Black body with a small tan head
In long: I think the nose might have been medium roasted with medium coffee. It’s not totally impossible that the beer has a taste of very roasted coffee beans and light chocolate notes. There was probably not fruity flavours. I have been told there the beer is very very roasted and very dry. Possibly a strong bitterness in the finish. If all that is true than this beer is both very tasty and very sessionnable. But I’m not sure about all that really, I had a Blackout.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Best beer of the Vermont beer event. Strong bitter coffee aroma, lightly veregtal, cheese. Palate is a bit thin, tastes more like stale coffee and a bit of spoiled veggies. Still, while cold, this is a tasty and quenching beer. Just don’t let it get warm.

Draft at Blind Tiger. Pours black with a good amount of tan head. Coffee is the name of the game here in the aroma. Very roasty. Taste is coffee (go figure), couldn’t get much else. Decent palate with bitter coffee and slightly hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Black pour with a light brown ring of head. Aroma is roasted malt, slightly sweet black licorice. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth and soft. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet chocolate and fruit and the bitter dryness of coffee / roasted malt. This stout was still good when I found the bottom of the glass.
