4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a dark dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up rich dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and then a touch of chocolate malts. Very nice. The taste offers up coffee to start and then dark roasted coffee to burnt malts. To midway the coffee notes get deeper and richer. Good stuff that is hitting the spot right now.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a surprisingly dark amber color with a nice eggshell head. Very light for a coffee stout. The aroma is lightly nutty wiht some peanut shells and hard roasted coffee. The flavor is dry with more light fruity coffee notes. Hints of roasted malt and cocoa. Amber malts seem to rule here with a nice coffee flavor. Not as "stouty" as I was expecting, but still good.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Enticing dark roasted malt and Expresso bouquet. Huge coffee notes dominate with dark roasted malt, chocolate and caramel low lights. Smooth and creamy. Good body and mouthfeel.

22oz bottle -
A really nice stout with a good showing of coffee in both the flavor and aroma. Nothing over-powering, nothing unbalanced. Mouthfeel was nice and the acidic nature of the coffee did help with the sweetness of the malts in a unique way. Solid roasty character and surprised to see the low ABV on this. Nice beer all the way around.

Bottle to beer tulip. Pour is deep brown like cola with an off white head. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is strong coffee with next to no hops. The coffee is really nice. The base stout is really nice as well. The finish is medium bodied and slick. Decent stuff.
