The smell was wonderful in the glass, but things tailed off from there. The coffee notes were not as strong and the beer felt thinner than expected in the mouth. Finish improved it somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle for 2.99. Pours black with a brown hue and a small mocha colored head. Aroma is mostly roasted coffee with a little chocolate aroma. Taste is similar with a heavy amount of roasted coffee and sweet chocolate. Body is about average, a little creamy. I am surprised by how much this beer tastes like coffee instead of chocolate. It’s not bad; in fact it’s pretty good. It’s just not what I was expecting.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a big tan head and great lacing. Sweet cocoa, roasty, lightly earthy, bready, grassy, and vanilla aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, light oak, toasted malt, a hint of vanilla, earthy hops, and brown sugar. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Damn decent stout.
