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.

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).
