3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bomber bottled Nov ’12. Nose on cap opening is luxurious, deep mocha/coffee, roast is very mild and smooth, creamy. Light chocolate. Dark brown-pitch pour with a short light brown head that goes quickly on its way. Watery body with a little malt sticking out but mostly coffee; the sweet red berry is sharp and stinging and a really nice ornament, the alcohol is well-integrated, and the bitterness and acidity usually associated with coffee are downplayed (really, largely absent). The residual sweetness is a little off for style (but not off-putting) and there’s a bit of a film, but I generally like coffee-forward beer mixes and enjoyed this despite its quirks.

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 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.
