4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 16 ounce can thanks to pepsiedcan. Thanks! Pours a very densely black, nearly the color of used motor oil, with a gloopy brown head of foam. Smells of rich coffee beans, nuts, roasty, burnt, lightly fruity. Smells quite good. The first sip is very intense coffee. Like a kick in the face intensity. That taste really sticks with you, too. If I could brew a cup of coffee like this, I’d be a very happy man. Very good coffee stout.

Can. Pours pitch opaque black with a medium brown head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted malt. Flavor its the same, medium sweet, light sourness that eventually becomes a bit offputting. Medium body.

Thick pour. Thick drink. Thick is it. Coffee stout to the extreme. Pretty good but almost too much

I don’t know how this beer got such a high rating. It’s flat and tastes of 2 week old cold press. Mildy acidic. Licorice and obscenely sweet.

Poured very creamy and black and raised a tan head that left lacing like dark glue. Nose is chocolate and coffee roasted malts. Heavy body and a slick mouthfeel. The flavor is strong with coffee, chocolate, and ripe fruit. Long bitter finish. Simply outstanding

16 ounce can courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown color with a large dark brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, chocolate and tobacco. The taste is coffee, dark roasted malts, sweet malts and a bit of smoke. Medium bodied, low carbonation.

On tap at GTMW - Was really looking forward to this one, and the nose initially lived up to my expectations. Unfortunately, then I tasted it. It poured nice, black with a thin tan head. Nose has lovely coffee, hazelnut and vanilla. Taste isn’t at all what you’d think though, with everything watered down--the coffee, the roast, the vanilla, the nuttiness. Even the body is really light. Just a big letdown.
