Canned (5.8%) from LifeSource. Black in color. Roasty dry nose. Some milk sugar and hop bitterness as well. Coffee and a little sweetness up front. It then goes into a dry bitter roasty flavor. Bitter roasty in the finish. Mild on the hop bitterness. Pretty tasty coffee stout.

Unique and tasty. Clean coffee and light hops in the aroma. Flavors of fresh roasted coffee, toasted grains, caramel and hints of milk. There’s no mistaking this is a coffee beer. A bit thinner than expected, but really smooth with a clean finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (Vintage Cellars Elsternwick). Black with a light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, roasted barley. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation - still a bit astringent though. Lots of (OK but not interesting) coffee, moderate roasted flavours, husks, some dark chocolate. Clean moderately bitter finish. I don’t really understand why you’d make a big thing of a complicated exotic mixture of grains... and then wallop it with coffee, but a nice and very drinkable drop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours dark black with off white head and some lacing. Aroma is dark roast and coffee. Taste is straightforward coffee with some bitterness on the back and some milk chocolate and dark chocolate mixed in, Has a little bit of wood aftertaste. The idea behind this is wonderful, but the execution is a little lacking.
