3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep black body with a frothy tan head that had great retention and decent lace. A nice blend of malts on the nose. Roasted and cocoa malts seemed to be the main players but there was a nice smokey quality and decent coffee notes. Flavor had a nice sharp bitterness to it coffee and roasted malts complemented each other flavors off semi-sweet chocolate and mild smoke rounded out the flavor. Wickedly dry in the finish. Nice mouth feel.

Bottle at home, gifted from Steve N. Aroma of toasted pecans, bitter iced coffee, char. Light to medium bodied. Flavors of coffee, almost burnt nuts, slightly lactic palate, with a tannic, bitter finish. High drinkability, really good.

Bottle via Patrick. Pours a medium brown, little bit of tan head. Aroma nutty, coffee-forward, with oatmeal interlaced. Body medium-thin, roasty character. May have been a little past it age-wise, but a nice little beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich, dark brown with a medium tan head, moderate lacing. Aroma is a pleasing roast malt and coffee. Taste is of medium bitterness with a hint of sweetness. Surprisingly, the beer is light and only slightly milky and soft. Overall, the beer is quiet enjoyable. I would prefer more body but it is still satisfying.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed a sample at my buddy's place. Appearance is moderate pitch black with an off white head. Aroma is really good, strong espresso notes, fudge, chocolate, good stuff. Taste is acidic, huge coffee notes, but overall I think it burns from the acidity. Not a fan.

Bottle. Strong earthy coffee and light chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with moderate tan head. Strong bittersweet coffee grounds and light toffee malt flavor. Body a bit light. Okay but not much beyond the coffee.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly black with a short tan head.
Coffee, fudge aroma.
Carbonated, dark roast coffee flavour.
Solidly done...not complex, just a very straightforward coffee stout.

The beer is average. It is too bitter for me. Possibly the barley is the reason I think it is just okay.
