On tap. Dark thick black with no head to speak of. Powerful flavor of roasted coffee nicely balanced with a bittersweet chocolate presence. This was very good, but also very rich, no more than 1 at a time for me.

Bottle. Poured black with a medium-sized tan head that left some lacing. Aroma and flavor were rich coffee, quite a lot of dark roasted malt, a bit of milk chocolate. I usually donít like coffee stouts -- usually taste like acrid, stale grounds to me. But this one was quite good.

Really a nice burnt coffee taste. Not heavy on the palate but certainly not a light least. Very burnt roasted favors. Stellar for coffee stout lovers!

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a rich burnt umber color with a finger or two of khaki foam... Aromas are roasty chocolate, deep espresso, licorice and some earthy boozy fruit. The palate follows the nose with a rich creamy mouthfeel with a aggressive bubble. Sweet milk chocolate, deep burnt coffee, dark fruits... long roast on the finish even a touch of peat. Burly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque black with slight brown highlights, a nice tan head with good lacing. The nose imparts aroma of roasted malt and a deep coffee that smells a bit acrid and vegetal. Small amount of bakers chocolate and caramel. Taste is mostly coffee grounds and dark roasted malt with an ashy flavor. The barest amount of sweetness from the malt and a moderate but sharp bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Similar to Founders Breakfast Stout with the slightly vegetal coffee ground taste that I donít really like. I prefer more of a rich coffee bean flavor, but this isnít a bad beer by any means.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown color with a little light showing through around the rim, no head. Smells of coffee dominate as expected, also some vegetal like smells, grass, a little roast. Tastes of roast coffee, booze, some bitterness and a little bit of sweetness in the form of maybe a chocolate or cocoa. Needs a little more sweetness to balance it. And I don't care much for the grass/vegetal smells. Decent overall but doesn't quite hit the mark.
