Thanks to pepsiedcan for this. Black in color with a khaki head. Roasted malt, coffee, and a light chocolate aroma. Light metallic note, some toffee sweetness, very light nuttiness, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is mostly roasted malt and coffee. Some cocoa, molasses, toffee, and nuts. Very mild smokiness and a slight acidity and metallic character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thanks to Guerde! Pours very brown/black with a creamy dark tan head. My but there’s a strong coffee aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is very coffee, very chicory? herby? something veg, with a lot of dark burnt malt, and I think a subtle hint of chocolate. Anyway there is something that suggests a strong green plant aspect. This is bound to get your attention. Startlingly good.

THis one is a robust super coffee-driven stout. Not usually a huge fan of these but this one is good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 On tap @ Great River Iowa City. Dark black appearance with a brown head. Black coffee light milky stout aroma. Thicker mouthfeel than the milk stout but the coffee overly bitters the beer. Rich milk chocolate, coffee, espresso, a touch acidic, fruity flavor. Roasty aftertaste.
