3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a jet black from a 22 oz bottle. Little to no head which was disappointing. Probably due to the higher abv. Smelled just like an espresso from a coffee shop and tasted the same but a little sweeter. Seriously... Put it in a Starbucks cup and heat it up and you wouldn’t tell the difference. Sticky on the lips and very light carbonation. Again probably from the abv. Great filling dark coffee stout. I could drink it in the morning with a donut.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle in D.C.
A very good, mainstream coffee stout. Good balance in both bitter/sweet and in roasted grains/coffee flavors. Looked like it might be over-carbonated at the pour but the feel was quite good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a short thick tan head. Very mild vanilla and chocolate aroma. Soft cocoa ( not milk chocolate) taste with a chalky middle. Soft foamy mouth feel. Not as heavy as some stouts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Back of the bottle reads "bottled on 02/13/15."
This was poured into a mini - snifter.
The appearance was a black color with no head nor lacing.
The smell had some dark fruit blending with roasty coffee bean. Light cocoa balances nicely.
The taste was mainly roasty with the dark fruity tones making it semi-sweet together. Dry roasty coffee aftertaste leads to no finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonated decently as a Double Stout, dry roastiness really develops on my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a decent Double Stout. But probably not necessarily a go-to.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted sweet malt, creamy caramel.
