3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This starts with an aroma of coffee that has been sweetened with sugar. It pours black with red visible when held up to light and the little head that comes is a dark tan, the color of crema from an espresso shot. It has a slight flavor of coffee to it, with a nice long finish. Not my favorite coffee stout, but not a bad one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Visual: Pours jet black without a significant head, ringed nano-micro ringed retention, steady micro streams accompanied by sporadic scatted bubbles.
Nose: roasted nutty sweet coffee, liquid barley malt in the background. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: super THICK, creamy-smooth/almost NO2
Mid-palate: roasted coffee, (lvl-6-sweetness) -> roasted barley malt, light burnt bitter chocolate, soy sauce, alcohol tang, vanilla
Finish: deep roasted coffee exhale w/ lingering bittersweet roasted malt.
Summary: This one kept me sipping and sipping... and sipping. Wonderfully smooth and approachable thick-creamy mouthfeel with a very agreeable integrated roasted coffee & barley deep body. Balanced, rich, delicious. It could use a touch of milkiness, but otherwise excellent.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Opaque, covering lace. Very full body, silky texture, flavorful, big, rich and well balanced mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Bitter but well supported by mild background malt sweetness and balanced by crisp acidity. Intense dark coffee flavor, malty, tar, coke. Delicious and satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown colour with small head on top. Aroma has coffee beans, caramel malts, raisin too and of course roasted malts. Taste has lots of coffee, maybe that milk based cappuccino, roasted malts. Coffee stout, nothing special. Almost full body and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a very dark brown, forming a beige head that turns more tan as it diminishes. The head resembles a freshly pulled shot of espresso that turns to lace around the glass. There are hints of coffee and vanilla on the nose, but most of it is overwhelmed by the roasted malt and the hops used. The mouth is smooth if a bit heavy, a thicker feel than the beer looks like it would have. Towards the finish, the beer yields to the spicy and bitter notes from the hops with the coffee flavors. It does go down a bit too easily for a beer of such an ABV.
Overall, I was expecting more of an aroma from the beer, but I can barely smell it, even with a head. It’s not a bad beer. It is drinkable, but there is nothing spectacular about it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color black. White head, lace. Aroma is juniper berry and roast, earthy mineral. Same in taste but enhanced with more roast chocolate and juniper berry. Earthy herbal. Kinda sweet syrupy. Coffe seemed a little on the ashy day old side.Possibly a darker roast than I can appreciate maybe? Not sure. Stones Americano stout was real awesome, this is less.
