4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear black with tan creamy diminishing 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are coffee milkshake, caramel, toffee sugars, no alcohol present. Taste are balanced mix of brown sugar, sweet chocolate malts, coffee and toffee brew. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with meduim-full body, then lasting milky sweetness of malt ,sugars and coffee finish. A wonderful balanced smooth Imperial Stout...seek out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler fill from GAT Beer, NE Philadelphia. Poured opaque black with a small, thin dark tan head that was gone quickly. Aroma mixes notes of roasted coffee and molasses. Maybe some cocoa too. Body is medium and lightly oily, with a lightly dry finish. Flavor of roasted coffee with a sweet note underneath from the brown sugar. A touch of cream appears as it warms.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque brown with explosively foamy mocha head, which persists as significant skim and lacing.
Nose is coffee and cocoa. Palate follows suit along with caramelized sugar, hints of cherries and pepper in well-balanced combination. Mouthfeel is very creamy. That may be all the carbonation as much as the milk element, but it gentles the alcohol.
Slight bitter grounds on finish, but this is a good ha’pint of coffee stout. I’ll look for it again when the weather turns cool.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really nice nose, with a little bit of cocoa mixed in with coffee. Rich, delicious malt sweetness with hints of coffee. As it warms, there is an almost cherry-like flavor in the mid-taste to finish. Good body, but not too full. Finishes clean. I’ll definitely pick up one of these on the next cold night.

Pours a deep dark brown with a thin off white head which disappears quickly.....aroma of wet coffee grounds, earth......taste is earthy, bitter coffee grounds, dried out finish. Quite a different taste for a coffee stout.

Draft at Bierstube. Opaque black pour with a rather thick tan head. Fullbodied coffee milk stout. Slight nail polish in the nose - but mostly solid refined coffee flavors. Red peppers. Cocoa nibs. Light molasses. Creamy mouth feel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Pours clear and brown with a small, wispy, short-lived head. The nose consists mainly of earthy chili peppers, dark chocolate and a light facet of coffee. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and nearly-expired carbonation. The flavor mirrors the aroma, but there is more of the earthy, chili pepper component here than coffee. This is an odd bird, and not especially pleasant. Coffee grounds in the aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong coffee aroma with roasted malts and a slight sweet lactose smell. Taste is very smooth. Tastes of coffee roasted malt with a smooth lactose sweetness. Does not taste strong at all. Maybe get a hint of the brown sugar in here but it is subtle. Nice milk stout if you want some coffee flavors in your stout.

Bottle from Matt McCue. Thanks, bro. Pours black with little head that fades minus a ring around the glass. Aroma is aldehydes, roasted coffee, sweet molasses. First sip is similar with big flavors of brown sugar and espresso. Finish is like the last sip of coffee with a bit of sugar. Nice beer.
