3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of coffee, green coffee, ash, bitter chocolate, roasted malts. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, faint ash, bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, the ash-note is a bit offputting, but it’s a decent beer.

Draft. Black pour with tan head. Dark roasted and malty aromas. Flavors still lack a bit of coffee from what I was expecting; light roasted and dark malt tones, not bitter or sweet.

750 capped bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy deep black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, coffee. Intense nose that is a true beauty. Tastes rich, with roasty malt, a heavy but well integrated coffee flavor, mild spicy notes, and some black currant notes. Finishes complex and well balanced. This is an elite example of this style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a deep chocolate color with a thick tan head and little lacing. The smell is that of a smooth Kenyan roasted coffee. The taste is a mix of coffee and sweet fruit that balances nicely. You get roasted earthy flavors with blueberry and a hint of fresh mint. This is a unique coffee stout with a medium body that rolls through the tongue with a silky feel. Just enough coffee bitterness on the end to linger with some of the blueberry. Very good.
