3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice espresso cocoa aroma that hits the tongue with a sight bitterness that is quickly masked by the espresso and chocolate notes along with some malty sweetness. I also like that the bitterness stays on the palate but is mixed with the complexity of the espresso. It's like it's enjoyably noticeable but tamed by the crowd. Has a slight dryness on the feel. This is pretty good though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from bottle deep rich brown, slight hint of ruby, with medium mocha head that leaves a bit of skim.
Rise-and-shine aroma of coffee, roast malt, nuts. Palate is coffee, a bit harsh initially, but soon moderated by dark chocolate, a fizzy cola note and a bit of creaminess.
Seems like a pick-me-up, though the 9 percent ABV would soon put an end to that. But very tasty for a glass or two.

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
