Draft @ beer temple. Body is a normal sweet stout, but the coffee is quite dominant in this beer. Like drinking a strong espresso. Has a bitter and slightly sour aftertaste, which is a bit unpleasant.

On tap @ Nakameguro Taproom. Nice beige head on a nice black body. It does smell like a cup of nicely roasted coffee. Taste does this beer a justice and there is nice roast, together with some coffee beans. Smooth mouthfeel and relatively thin body. Good beer, nice for slow sipping.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
7% on tap at Bungalow. A dark midnight black pour with a thick creamy beige head. Strong roast coffee bean aroma, imagine you’re at a coffee roasters inhaling the intoxicating smell while waiting for a cup of joe - that’s what this beer evokes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel on a slightly thin body. The taste is your morning coffee with cream & two sugars. Roasty sweet milk coffee goodness. Up there with the best coffee stouts but more regular coffee than high end coffee. As you drink the glass though the sweetness becomes slightly cloying. All in all though a great beer considering I don’t like coffee but really find this beer well executed. Nicely done Baird!
