Bottle at a Red Robin (pleasant surprise). Poured into a pint glass, very dark brown with tan head. Aroma of black coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is (I hate to say it) adds old coffee, some smokiness and a slight herbal hop note. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth, malty, bitter with lingering roasty/coffee finish. I wish this had fresher tasting coffee notes, decent but not great coffee stout.

Good balance of coffee smell, bitterness and alcohol, taste however somewhat sour coffee, when comparing with other stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A decent stout with good coffee flavor. It is well balanced considering its 9% ABV. Would probably be better right from the source instead of out of the bottle. Head was lacking and went away quickly. Color was dark and deep.
