3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can at Pinball Jones’. Appearance: film tan head, good lacing, black color, opaque. Aroma: chocolate milk, roast, light coffee. Palate: full body, average to soft carbonation, bitter finish, slightly oily texture. Taste: sweet chocolate and coffee malt with dark chocolate and coffee bitter finish. Overall, ok balance, a bit over bitter though, and not quite full bodied enough.

Poured a black color with two fingers of dark khaki tan, frothy head. Poor, spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention. (Sight - 3.63)
Smelled rich, dark roasty coffee malts, dark chocolate, dark cocoa, smoky fire, dark, roasty nuts, rich toffee and more smokiness. Felt like I was at a campfire. (Smell - 3.88)
Tasted pretty close to the nose. Dark, rich coffee malts, bitter dark chocolate, dark cocoa, smoky fire, smoky wood, dark toffee and faint crayon. Could arguably called a porter as well. (Taste - 3.75)
Full body. Sticky-to-slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.88)
This was a nice coffee stout, although I seem to be a sucker for these. Nice, roasty and great for winter in a non-San Diego climate. (Overall - 3.75)

Bitter coffee and bitter hops, overwhelming most everything else. Doesn’t necessarily need to be sweeter but needs something.

Basically black with extremely thin but lasting tan head. Smells like cold rich coffee. Tastes like a cold cup of coffee with light cream in it. The bitter from the coffee stains your mouth.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with medium tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted sweet coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
