3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown-to-black in the glass from a draft. Coffee, roasty notes carried on a light aroma of yeast. A hint of spicy hop, but the weight of the beer is a little light for me. The punch of chocolate and coffee never really hits home, and as a result I get too much astringency from the nine percent abv.

12oz bottle. Opaque brownish-black body. Thin, patchy, fading head. Pronounced coffee aroma, certainly exceeds my expectations. Really tasty, lots of bold coffee tones, vanilla, chocolate. A touch thin in the body somehow, but a rides the massive espresso tones quite well.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours coffee black with a thin ring of tan foam around the edges. Nose is caramel, roasted coffee grounds and malt. Taste is semisweet chocolate and mocha. Alcohol flavor is hidden well. Medium body, low carbonation with an almost cloying finish. Overall not bad, but there are many other coffee stouts I would choose over this.

not found of this one. aroma is all coffee. flavor is similar, but with a weird funk at the end, too much bitterness, and a bit of metallic bite. infected bottle maybe, or too much time going from a truck to a cooler? ill give it another shot someday. for now its not good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark black color with almost no head, and no lacing. Aroma and flavor have decent toasty malts, with slight bitterness and coffee notes. Alcohol flavor is a bit strong. Okay overall, but not great.

Aroma us coffee, Dark chocolate, salt. Dark black color, thick, small tan head. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, toasted malt. A good bitterness. Feel is not very lively, but the drinking is smooth. A nice stout.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at a beer event. Bottle. Opaque brown pour with slight tan head. Not much aroma. Flavor of a mild espresso. Not much else going on. Smooth finish. Too clean and slippery.

Black pour with no head and no lacing .... looks like used motor oil basically .... aroma of fresh coffee grinds and espresso with a light roasted flavor as well ..... taste is roasted and of light chocolate with a coffee and some light sweet caramel malt to it .... mouthfeel is thick, oily and and slick with a dry roasted finish .... flat carbonation and boring ... abv hidden well ... kind of a boring brew

12 oz bottle. The pour is promising in a dark brown with a mocha colored head. The lace is hardly there, but I don't take that to heart. The aroma is a mix of light coffee and coffee cake. Somewhat bland. The taste is equally as bland, maybe offering a slight hint of roast or chocolate. The mouth feel is really thin, and it's not an awful stout, but not what I'd like to see
