How: Bottle (12 oz) at home.
>>> A flavorful, well balanced and easy drinking coffee Stout. Bell’s are good with dark beers.
- Dark brown with a medium easy to revive creamy brown head, good retention and little lacing.
- It’s bursting with espresso beans flavors in both aroma and taste.
- Sweetness is moderate and the beer is rather well balanced. Strong espresso is working harmoniously with a rich dark chocolate presence and roasted malts.
- Fully bodied stout with medium carbontion and a rich oily mouthfeel.
- Despite 7,5% abv, the beer isn’t boozy at all and despite being quite flavorful it’s also fairly drinkable.
- There’s a mild coffee acidity in taste.
Flavors: Espresso beans, dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, mild herbal notes, mild acidity (taste).

Bottle to snifter. No detailed notes - entering form older tastings. Really heavy on the coffee, but you should probably expect that from the name and deScription. A little bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like chocolate and coffee. Low to medium carbonation. Very lightly foamy and creamy mouthfeel. Thick and syrupy. Taste is dark chocolate and roasted black coffee. The most prominent flavor is the coffee, and boy is it strong. Aftertaste is long length and the same, with a bit of alcohol warmness and bitterness (unfortunately).
