Dark, dark brown, really nice tan head. I’m very impressed with this stout. Lots of roast, sweet malts, coffee, and chocolate. It almost seems to have an oak quality to it with vanilla notes throughout. Delicious!!

Drank during an awesome tasting at Thijs’ place 28-3-2014. Watery beer, compared to several others we had. Coffee is present. Not a deep beer. Though not very bad.

A strong coffee aroma. It had flavors of vanilla and coffee well balance between sweet and hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer poured outstanding with a solid dark cola hue to it, passes through no light at all, had a solid brown foamy head, and left decent lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a solid espresso nose and a mild smokey finish with mild hints of dark chocolate. The beer tasted decent with a strong coffee and dark chocolate taste, a hint of birch on the back end. The mouthfeel is great as the beer was well carbonated, full bodied, and left your mouth feeling chewy. Overall, a solid beer if you love coffee/chocolate stouts.

GABF 2013. Thin bodied coffee stout. Fairly one dimensional. Could use more body and darker malt profile.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Subtle lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, with mellow chocolate and maple syrup notes. Taste is bitter chocolate with a sweet finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Slightly sweeter than I prefer, but overall very good.
