3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle bottled in November 2010 and served in a pint glass (from Sept. 2011 notes).
Pours opaque and nearly black with a towering head that quickly settles to a rather thin, creamy, resilient, dark tan top
Aroma has coffee and dark roasted malts in about equal strengths. However, the coffee component becomes dominant in the taste and even more dominant in the aftertaste.
T- As advertised, there is plenty of coffee flavor this brew. Too much black coffee in that it doesn’t allow the dark malt to shine as it should in a stout. Aftertaste of coffee with some faint roasted malt and fainter hops and smoke. More bitter and sour than sweet.
M - smooth but with some hops/carbonation tingle; semi-dry finish. Near medium body.

Nice coffee taste and aroma. Thin on the tongue. Sweet and good balance. No head. Malty. Nice. Just needs more body.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thin tan head on a dark brown colored body.
The aroma is a nice mixture of dark chocolate, roasted malt and milk.
The taste has lots of coffee notes: bitter dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt and milk. Mild bitterness at the end.
The texture is crisp with a soft edge.
Great aroma and a descent tasting beer.

"for the style (this one was the reason i bought the mixer) it was a bit of a letdown. everything from aroma (some coffee and sweet malts) to the body, look, etc...all average. pleasant enough, but not something i’ll go back for. i was hoping for more..."

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Delivers more coffee than stout tastes, and a bit sweet, but that’s perfectly fine with me!
