3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the brewery. Pours a day brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of roasted malts with dark grains, roasted malts and a hint of chocolate backing. Flavor combines dark grains, roasted malts and coffee but is a touch thin.

Bottle. Pitch black with some tan foam that disappears quickly. Roasty aroma, chocolate. Very similar flavor with added creaminess. Solid for such a low ABV.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that had been cellared almost a year - jet black with almost no head. Strong black coffee taste but a low grade for the palate. Seemed too thin and had a taste on the back end (lemon?) that just didn’t belong in a stout. It was OK but I’ve had much better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle courtesy of kbutler. Thanks. Pours a dense black color with a small tan head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is strong with coffee, coffee grounds and a bit of dark chocolate. The taste is dominated by the coffee, with walnuts, chocolates and mocha playing effective supporting roles. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering coffee. Overall: A fine coffee stout. good stuff.

Strong coffee stout here that represents the local Dunn Bros. Slightly less acidy than other coffee stouts.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Near black with quickly dissipating light brown head. Great medium roast coffee aroma with malty oat background. The flavor is mildly sweet but has the bitterness of straight coffee. Lighter in body with lively small carbonation. Really enjoy the aroma, but wish the beer was a little heavier.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some roasted coffee, some earth, and some dark fruit. Flavor is a bit of roast and coffee in the beginning with dark fruit taking over towards the end. I don’t know if this one just oxidized or what, but the burst of dark fruit in the end took away from the whole experience. Medium in body and lingering roast and coffee in the finish.
