On tap @ The Beer Junction. Nitro.
High drinkability. Very nice, almost comforting, espresso taste with a solid stout to back it up. Not an overwhelming bitter taste, yet enough to compliment the robust malt sweetness and coffee finish.

Black with a dark brown head. Sweet dark malts and coffee are the two notes I picked up in this one. It also has some vanilla in the background, rounding out the sweet malt. Full bodied. Pretty simple coffee stout but well made at the same time.

Visual: Pours dark cola brown with an INSANE amount of ultra creamy long-lasting root beer head, lots of micro steady streams around the perimeter.
Nose: caramel malts with some chocolate and roasted coffee. (lvl-8)-pungency
Attack: creamy-bubbly head, fizzy crisp tingly
Mid-palate: continual fizzy-bloated, background light sourness, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) milky chocolate, roast coffee, root beer, dark malt
Finish: roasted exhale, burpy, light burnt bitterness, soft roasted finish.
Summary: Good sweet roasted malt entry and clean finish. Overall satisfied but leaves you feeling a bit bloated due to the creaminess.

Dark brown color. Light brown head. Massive espresso notes in the nose to the degree that malt character is suppressed. Not necessarily a bad thing IMO. Super smooth mouth that has ton of espresso, caramel and roasted malt notes. Slightly acidic. Super quaffable. Lingering espresso finish. Excellent.

AROMA: coffee, roasty, earthy,
APPEARANCE: black, minimal head,
TASTE: medium bitterness,
PALATE: medium body, fizzy, bitter finish,
OVERALL: As an avid coffee and a
n avid beer drinker, I think this really brings about the best of both worlds. Its got the bitterness of a good cup of coffee, but the smooth fizzyness of a good beer. I think this is my favorite coffee stout that I have tasted.

Pours dark chocolate with a tobacco stained head. First pass at aroma was a bit sour, but as it warmed, there are notes of coffee, toffee and chocolate. The flavor is a lovely blend of coffee, chocolate, molasses and malt with a hint of a bite to finish. The palette is lighter than expected.

On tap at MKT. Right off the bat I dig this. Espresso, hazelnut, perfect sweetness, milkish, medium roast, light fruit, smooth chocolate, creamy feel and bitterness that you forget about. Quick review might not do this justice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark black with creamy tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, licorice root, vanilla. Taste is massively coffee all around, as if the grounds were in your mouth. Chocolate and root beer in the middle of the mouth, with vanilla and hop finish. This is good, but for a stout with lactose, it definitely lacks a velvety thick mouthfeel, and is a bit light on the booziness.
