3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black, with a relatively thin, moderate brown head. Head is a bit frothy, but with little in the way of retention--dissipates quickly. Aroma is absolutely dominated by coffee, with a somewhat sour character. Some chocolate malts are detectable, but they’re definitely in the background. Taste is of coffee with a mainly tart, sweet-and-sour character. Some fruitiness, too--like cherries. Not much in the way of burnt malts, almost porter-like. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin-side, but I wouldn’t say watery. Lively carbonation, but the effervescence is not overpowering. In sum, this beer is somewhat uncharacteristic of many coffee stouts because of its almost porter-like presentation, but a very fine beer nonetheless. If you’re a coffee lover who is disappointed with that coffee stouts that privilege burnt malts, then give this one a try. A grower, but I like it a lot. Bears a lot in common with the Bell’s Cherry Stout (which I love), but with a coffee kick. Another fine showing for Bell’s.

Bottle. Seems like a good way to ease out of a Friday afternoon working from home. Near black pour with small cream-colored head that isn’t huge but sticks around for a long, long time Aroma initially is dominated by coffee, but after it warms in the glass for a few minutes you realize that there’s also a huge rich chocolate component as well. Taste is moderately sweet, with nice finish that dances between roast coffee bitterness and decadent fudgy chocolate. Medium+ body, average carbonation, surprisingly velvety texture. Overall: This is one impressive coffee stout. Loving this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drank from a shaker, from a bottle,
the pour gave a large, thick chocolate shake like head of bubbles and the beer was black in the glass,
the aromas were roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, a bit of caramel, malt, chocolate and brown sugar sweetness,
it had flavors of big roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, a bit of roasted malt bitterness, some brown sugar and a touch of molasses,
the roasted malt bitterness and coffee gave a good bitterness to balance the malt and chocolate sweetness, the bitterness and coffee hung around on the tongue,
the mouth feel was medium to the light side of full and it was pretty creamy on the lips, the carbonation was average,
this stout was a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, this bottle has sat around for more than six months, a fresher bottle would have more coffee and coffee bitterness, this beer was really nice, I recommend this drink.
