3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. Bit of a gusher! It pours very dark brown with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is roasted malt, mellow caramel, vanilla, toasted coconut, chocolate, mild coffee, wood and bourbon. The taste is roasted malt, spice, earth, caramel, touch chilli pepper, cracked black pepper, light bitterness, bourbon, vanilla and warming alcohol. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Mellow and fairly well-balanced.

This lightly carbonated deep black color beer has a strong coffee aroma. The coffee is well balanced but the chipotle which adds a very interesting layer to this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home via trade with OCBeerSociety. Thanks! Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Moderately spicy chili pepper, light veggie, toasty malty, coffee, chocolate aroma with a fair amount of spiciness that tickles the nose. A bit chewy malty, cocoa, roasty malty, slightly spicy, pepper, bitter coffee flavor with some spiciness on the finish. Kind of fun but Iím not positive that I enjoy the coffee element.

Dark appearance with a beautiful head. This is brewed with coffee and chipotle peppers. Amazing malt after taste. Give this one a try!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a big, pillowy head that fades slowly. Aroma is pretty faint, mostly fresh roasted coffee with a hint of peppers. Taste is decent. Coffee dominates the taste with a slight bitterness. Finish brings in a slight chipotle pepper taste without the heat. Overall, a decent stout but I was hoping for more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown with red. Big coffee in the aroma is nice. That also comes through strongly in the flavor. Bittering hops. Smoke is light. This is what a coffee stout should be.

In the glass it has an almost black color with an off white head. The aroma has some coffee with mild notes of cocoa and spice. The flavor is dominated by coffee almost espresso like. The peppers kick in on the finish then grow to a spicy smooth finish.
