3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Drake! Dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, dirty old coffee grounds, hints of dark cocoa, some slight earthy notes, touch of toast. Taste was a mix of roast, cocoa, slight espresso and coffee bean, slightly acrid coffee grounds, hints of spice, finishing slightly bitter.

Deep flavors of coffee and cocoa, light roast in the malt. Just a little toast and char, more punchy than creamy.

A good solid coffee stout. Plenty of body but the higher alcohol is not apparent. It's nice and malty and there are good coffe/chocolate balances

355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking and shared with Finn. Espresso head slowly diminishing. Black body with a ruby glint. Powerful aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. The flavour profile follows suit with coffee grounds, almond, and black chocolate. Prolonged ending, nicely roasted. Smooth on the swallow. Warming and tasty (session at Finns, Tromsø 16.12.2015).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 29, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... OCCASION: Christmas lights--up and operational... APPEARANCE: pitch black body supports a creamy, thick brown head that smears cirrus clouds above its half-finger base... attractive crags form while the head settles... AROMA: deep, alluring peat and coffee bean... what else? some briny notes with roasted malts... slight alcohol wafts in... PALATE: warm, soft, and smooth--much gentler than the 9% ABV would suggest; late action warms and leaves a comfortably lingering aftertaste that cooks... TASTE: as advertised, a powerful shot of coffee bean and roasted malts... the flavor is not overwhelming, but it is demonstrative... reasonable sweetness... OVERALL: as espresso stouts go, solid and rewarding...the ABV instantly numbs and the caffeine stimulates...one of Dominion’s better, right up there with the Oak Barrel stout...

Aroma of chocolate & coffee. Small off white head that disappears. Dominate chocolate flavor with a hint of coffee. Coffee taste seems to take over later in the beer.
