3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque, deep, dark brown. Head is a pillowy, medium brown that dissipates quickly and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is a combination of roasted chocolate malts and alcohol. Taste is very much in line with the aroma--the bittersweet flavor of the roasted malts predominates, with some bright, almost fruity notes provided by the coffee. I didnít smell the coffee, but I can certainly taste it, and it adds a great deal of character to this stout. Not overdone, but definitely present. Aftertaste is slightly of alcohol, but again, not too strong. Palate is somewhat thin, with lively carbonation--I would have expected something a bit oilier. Overall, I think this is a fine balanced stout. Although explicitly an espresso stout, the coffee plays a supporting role to the chocolate malts, which are the star of the show. But the interaction between the two, with a roasted flavor and a somewhat restrained presence of alcohol, leads to a stout whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. My only disappointment here is with the palate, which I wish had a wee bit more body--but thatís a very minor point. Compared to the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, I do think this one is the superior brew. Itís more flavorful, less alcoholic, and somewhat more balanced. But do try both.

Pours black with a huge tan head. The aroma was a mix of fresh coffee, oak and bourbon. The flavour much the same but the fresh roasted coffee was a huge point. Amazing beer.
