3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Extremely balanced and very approachable. Love ABV but this one is pretty damn complex given the ABV. Only 5.7% but the alcohol content is not at all indicative of the flavor or aroma. Assertive with the stats available. Solid but not world class.

A very nice coffee stout. What makes this one is the flavor vis-a-vis the ABV. Great stout base -- just a "wee" hint of sweetness and roastiness. Coffee flavor is subdued, and not over the top. Quite quaffable.

Tap at the source. Black pour with a very small creamy head that fades to a nice thick ring. Aroma is all fresh coffee beans with just a light roast. Lovely. Tastes solid too. Mostly fresh coffee beans, light creamy sweetness, light roast, and light pine even. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Great stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours almost black with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like rich dark coffee, dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, dry booze. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like rich coffee, dark chocolate, booze, and faint vanilla.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery. Pours deep, dark brown with fizzy beige head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, vanilla, faint oats, and light coffee notes. Flavor is chocolate, roast, ash, earthy notes, and some coffee notes; came across as a little thin which was further accentuated by the carbonation level. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

(Bue en fût sur place); L’espresso est immense dans ce stout et vole la vedette aux quelconques prétendants à la course aux saveurs. Probablement la plus intense présence torréfiée possible pour cette grosseur de stout.

Jet black and oily. Big delicious coffee aroma. Taste is like a delicious creamy cold Brew. Excellent light roast coffee with dark roast malt. Fantastic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Arizona Wilderness. Black in color with a tan head. Super heavy on the coffee. Nice roasted nuts and earthy coffee. Plenty of roasted malt and hazelnut. Some vanilla and dark chocolate. Nice stuff. The flavor is similarly dominated by the coffee. Plenty of roast, coffee grounds, vanilla, and hazelnut. Notes of cocoa and dark fruit/black cherry. A hint of sweetness and a nice bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty much smells and tastes very similar to a nice cup of coffee. If someone gave me this and didn’t tell me what it was, I might actually think it was coffee. Medium body with very very light carbonation.
