3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a thinner bodied blackish body with a smaller super light beige head. Aroma of coffee hazelnut coffee, dark toast, light cream. Body is a little thin with super tight bubbly carbonation and a bitter finish. Flavor is more of a bitter cold pressed old coffee with a side of dark toast. If you want a breakfast beer stick with the original.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours near black but clear with mahogany highlights when held to the light. The tan head is rather weak and soon reduces to a ring and island.
Aroma: coffee and dark roasted malts, nicely balanced, with hints of coffee grinds, faint spices and roasted nuts.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma but the coffee is more dominant. Mild+ bitterness.
Feel: smooth, medium-full body with light but adequate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz. bottle, from West. Thanks, man! Pours black, with a medium, tan head. Nose is coffee, light toffee, some allspice, and syrup. Very sweet, with a light bitterness that balances well. Medium body, syrupy, and a little acrid. This is a nice, low-key, coffee forward stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brought back by some WI friends. Dark brown pour with mocha head - looks a bit thin. Smell is smooth roast coffee, caramel, some minerality. Taste is some metal, oldish coffee, nutty, caramel, roast. Ok, but to be fair no bottle date and there was noticeable dust on the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz Bottle poured a dark black with a tin tan head. The roasted coffee and chocolate aroma is evident in the sweet cream taste. Expected a heavier body but found this to be medium and a little thin. As it warmed the flavors become more pronounced, so it is definitely one to savor. Overall, very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This impresses me more like an Imperial Stout. The pints were a pleasant surprise. This does make its way on to my repeat list.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from a bottle. Pours black with a small amount of tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is heavily coffee. Taste is also big time coffee with some dark chocolate. Faint hint of caramel sweetness. Not to drying on the mouth. Pretty solid coffee stout.
