3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. Dark, with a small, short-lived brown head. There is black coffee in the nose, or maybe coffee with a little unrefined sugar. Not too strong. It is milder in the flavour, which is definitely on the sweet side. Not cloyingly so, however. A different take on the coffee stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of delicious coffee, roasty chocolate, and vanilla. Pours dark and has a good looking beige head. Taste is nice and chocolatey with roast coffee and iron. Mouthfeel is very light which is kind of disappointing. Finishes with iron and coffee. Tasty but kind of week.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes: Poured opaque black with a 3-finger tan head. Deep, roasty coffee aroma, with a slight peppery note. Full body with a mild oily thickness. Deep, strong coffee flavor. There is a lightly spicy note underneath, and a touch of cream at the back as it warms. Nice offering.

Taste: Low sweetness, medium/high bitterness and medium sourness. Coffee and burnt/roast malts.

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.
