12 oz. bottle in a shaker. Dark opaque brown pour with little quickly dissipating tan head. Aromas of bananas and chocolate. Rich coffee flavor, almost overpowering the beer taste. A little too roasty, but still pretty good. Tastes more like cold coffee than refreshing stout to me.

Coffee, chocolate aroma with a lot of roasted malt. The pour is almost black with a creamy tan head. The flavor is sweet with chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, caramel. Creamy smooth feel with a nice warming on the throat. Quite nice.

Served on tap at Teller’s in Cincy. The appearance is a deep coffee brown. The flavors and aromas are excellent with a medium roasted coffee with a healthy does of cream. Some dutch chocolate dusting as well. A nice above average coffee stout, well worth the try.

Draft at Wholefoods Fairfax. Aroma is of roasted malt and coffee, but very faint. Appearance is dark brown, with minimal brown head that quickly dissipates. Taste is mild, not very complex, but very straightforward. Not a lot going on. Not bad flavors, just not much happening. Overall, one that I am glad I tried, but glad I do not have a whole six pack to put down.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Poured pitch black in color with a small, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Opaque. Slightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, cream, hops, and light roasted malt. Medium to full body. Viscous, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, finish is medium sweet, lightly bitter, and finishes lightly dry. 8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
