3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at pizza plant. Pours a dark dark reddish brown with a thin light brown head. Smells heavy on brown sugar and coffee. Tastes pretty sweet up front from the caramelized brown sugar. Some nuttiness. Coffee bitterness backs it up and is followed by some malt and slight smokiness. Carbonation is medium high for a stout, and the body isnít too heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 99% opaque dark brown, tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, with earthy and metallic notes. Taste is roasty and earthy with a super dry finish. Mouthfeel starts smooth but ends quite thin. Fine, but maybe my least favourite Dogfish Head Iíve had to date.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque black brew with a thick, foamy, cappuccino-colored head, sheís downright pretty with a sassy attitude and a quirky smile!
She smells like she just walked out of a bakery with hints of yeast, dough, coffee, and chocolate.
When you put her to your lips, she kisses sweetly, but the hop in her step keeps her sweet lips from lingering too long.
Sheís a full-figured gal and the creamy luxury of her touch will make you feel like a man.
Iíll visit her again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pretty much pitch black with tiny bits of a ruby red on the edges of the glass. Basically no head, no lacing.
Smell: Eh... hardly average. Very faint malt aroma ... something floral as well. Chicory, maybe?
Taste: After seeing how flat it looked and how I didnít care for the smell, I didnít think it would taste too great ... but it surprised me. Super nice and deep roasted malt flavor, but there seems to even be coffee and a good bit of tobacco or something in there, too. I get some very slight traces of alcohol in the taste as well, but thereís no warmth. The feel of this beer is medium ... probably my favorite part about it overall, because it isnít overly sweet, and it doesnít make me wish I could take a few swigs of water to wash out the syrupy texture I get from a lot of stouts.
Overall, solid. At $2.39 a bottle, itís pretty reasonably priced. I can get why this isnít a super high rated stout (probably because of the lack of sweetness and syrupy texture?), but for the style, I give this one a 4 for taste. My taste buds like it, and Iím not generally a stout kind of guy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like most coffee stouts, black with a decent beige head. Strong coffee is the main scent, which carries over to the flavor. Flavor is also spicy, a little salty, with some plum and raisin sweetness leading into a long finish. Mouthfeel starts heavy as expected, but the carbonation cuts through it at the end. Very similar to a typical coffee stout, but with a spicy fruitiness not usually found.
