4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Avery Taproom. Pours nearly black with a small off white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roast. Flavor is mainly coffee, roast , chocolate, earthy. Palate is pretty much full bodied, just a touch on the thin side for my liking, finished bitter. Though packed with coffee flavor it is not over the top. I really liked this one!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nut brown in color with a touch of deep red. Great lacing. Good amount of tan head that holds well. Aroma is mostly roasted malt with a touch of coffee and nuttiness. Taste is coffee up front, with that nutty/roasty malt supporting the coffee. Medium-full body and low carbonation make this great to drink.

Some dark fruit notes of cherry and plum with some medium sweetness. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer with a nice coffee flavor and aroma. Nice roast malt character as well with a touch of sweetness. I think I like the base stout more.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
10 oz at Colorado Plus. I was concerned I would not be able to fill my coffee beer craving here in CO as my favorites are only available in the midwest and east coast. Avery has kindly fulfilled that need, though I could use this in bottles. This beer is basically black. The aroma is like walking into a coffee shop with someone grinding the beans a few feet away. The coffee is so genuine I can get the complexity of the bean itself. It’s earthy with minimal acidic bite, toasted nuts, I’m guessing Latin American or Hawaiian coffee. The flavor has a nice cacao background for some balance. It’s a bittersweet, dryish stout with more coffee than anything. Delicious.
