This is a serious coffee stout, with a ton of coffee bitterness, stout smoothness, roasted malts. Aroma is the same as the flavor. At the brewery.

On nitro at the brewery. Pours a dark brown black with a cream colored head. Aromas of light coffee and chocolate. Taste is quite minimal. Smooth texture and very easy drinking. Not over the top but could probably use a tad more coffee.

One of my favorite coffee beers in all the land. Ebony-hued with ruby highlights and a dense, creamy head the color of donut guts. The aroma leads with nutty, oily coffee beans, backed up by soft tones of vanilla, graham cracker and oatmeal. The beans are sharper and more burnt in the flavor, but are softened by the increased presence of vanilla bean and peanuts.

Nitro on location. Most wonderful smell of any coffee stout I have had. A little less malt or hop than I was expecting from a stout. Nitro makes it smooth, if a little watery. Great mouth watery aftertaste.

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.
