3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention is decent, and thereís a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like coffee, roasted malt, and some bittersweet chocolate. The taste is the same as the aroma, itís all coffee, roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew, and a nice coffee stout. Iíve been waiting to try this one for a while now, and I wasnít disappointed. Iím a fan of Hinterlandís 16 ounce bottles, too. $9.99 a 4-pack.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of cold press and chlorine. Flavor is basically perfect for a coffee stout, super well balanced, delicious coffee, roast and dark chocolate flavor with just enough sweetness. Good body for 4.8% but the flavor begs for something fuller. Great beer!

Has some decent coffee scents, with a bit of chocolate. Taste up front is super light, after taste has a nice coffee flavor that lingers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a solid black with a small light tan head that disappated quickly with slight lacing. Coffee aroma similar to home coffee maker fair such as Maxwell House or Folgers. Chocolate taste for a moment, then iced coffee, followed by creamy milk chocolate. A little too carbonated which dulls (steals) the coffee and chocolate taste and numbs the tongue. Good, but not the ideal coffee stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black with a big tan head and big splotches of lace. The taste is big - chocolate malt with a touch of coffee and some bittering in the finish to provide balance. A big taste; a big brew; tasty. Unfortunately, also filling. Hard to have more than one at a time. Very good, not great, but still recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/11/12. GTMW. Black pour with a small tan head that fades. Light coffee in the aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, and a hint of fruitiness. More coffee in the flavor with more touches of roasted malt, chocolate, and some caramel. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle split with Vinny. Pours flat cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of cream, bitter coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste it primarily weak black coffee with a bitter creaminess to it. Palate is sort of thin, but it works with the flavors. Decent stout, just definitely not digging the style at all these days.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color with medium beige head. Aromas of roasty, and chocolatey grains, espresso, and light vanilla. Taste is roasty malts, cocoa powder, and coffee beans. Had a nice light to medium bodied palate, very smooth finish.
