3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance: Black pour with ruby edges and a two finger fluffy khaki head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma: Deep roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some molasses and nuttiness. Taste: big nutty roasted maltiness all the way thru, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some dark dried fruits, ends coffee bitter dry and molasses sweet. Mouthfeel: medium to full body with medium carbonation. Overall: pretty solid. Wish it were a little thicker and I've had other stouts (not brewed WITH coffee) where coffee flavor was even more pronounced. I think some good barrel aging could do wonders with this.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle from friend. Served fridge chilled and in chalice. One finger tan head slowly dissipates. Little bit of lacing. Beer is very dark, close to black. moderate aroma of light roasted malts with some notes of chocolate and coffee. Taste is lighty bitter with a tad of sweetness midway. some light coffee and chocolates in the overall malty flavor. Medium bodied. Average carbonation. Good texture but almost "foamy" flavor hinders true flavor. Overall a decent coffee stout, slightly disappointing coming from Hardywood.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty, alcohol, vanilla,
Appearance brown, tan foam,
Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter,
Palate medium body,
Overall a nice coffee taste but nothing that is wowing me. Still a nice beer that if it was the only coffee stout on the draft list I would suggest this beer to a friend.

Bottle share at kickbacks. Dark brown pour. Aromas of light coffee, slight green pepper but also dark fruit/berry background. Taste is semi sweet. Slight coffee finish but not really what I was expecting.

750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt,ccoffee, dark chocolate, some mild acidity, a hint of tart fruit, this bottle seems a touch old, my first sampling of this beer had more coffee and less off character, the rating is a blend of both.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Starts off a little over carbonated, but nothing a lot
Of swirling can’t tame. Coffee is subdued, but the beer opens nicely to rich coffee and malt and Java notes. Not the best, but solid.
