At Bar Louie on Cumberland. Interesting beer. I both agree with the folks who disliked it and with the folks who liked it. The bitterness of the coffee is sometimes reminiscent of old grounds but it also is like a good restorative dry stout. Serving: Tap

If you like coffee stouts there’s nothing to dislike about this. Strong coffee flavor and aroma. Very creamy head.

DO KEEP YOUR HEAD OVER THE BOTTLE WHILE OPENING! Pours a ton of tan foam on opaque, nearly black liquid. Once the beer settles, a one-finger head is retained for much longer than average. Chocolate, coffee and roasted notes on the nose. Way over carbonated. Taste approximates the nose, although a little more smoky in the flavor.

Pint. Pour dark black thin off-white head. Roasty chocolate coffee malt aroma. Taste is mix of light sweet and bitter. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, medium bitter finish. Pretty good stout, was in the mood for something sweeter.

On nitro-tap. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is rich with coffee. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. Robust flavors but not too heavy. Nice find on nitro.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger of tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and a little caramel. Taste is light bitter and follows aroma. Mostly coffee and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with a thin and watery texture. Soft carbonation and a decently long finish. Good beer, but the mouthfeel is off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Tap] Pours an opaque black color with a small light brown head. Nose is of coffee, chocolate and ash. Taste follows the aroma pretty closely. The coffee here is evident, but not as strong as you may expect from a coffee stout. More of an earthy ash, wood and licorice flavor profile come out as it warms. Creamy palate. Definitely one of the better beers I had in the sampler from the brewpub.
