3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Oliver’s Beverage Center, Albany, NY. The stamp on the bottle neck reads: bottled on 12/30/12. Color is black with thin tan head, no lace. Nose is French press coffee and deep roasted barley. Flavor is old coffee and cream, semi-sweet chocolate and roasted barley. Palate is rich and thick with a sweet taste and very little coffee bitterness. After looking at the ratings, I’m not sure why it scores so low. A bit one dimensional but still a nice coffee stout that has good drinkability or…. Maybe I like coffee brews too much.

Received in trade from bluewolf17, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid black color with a small bubbly tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells of slightly acrid coffee with a hint of caramel, but little else. The flavor is an assault of java with a roasty malt edge. Light burnt caramel and dark chocolate malts attempt to provide some balance but aren’t strong enough to stand up to the unrelenting coffee bean. Medium to thin body with a light carbonation and a slick almost ashy mouthfeel. Decent enough coffee bomb, but really could use a bit more body and sweetness to help stand up to the acrid and thinning effects of the coffee.

Pours an opaque black with a small brown ring around the glass. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts and notes of cocoa. Flavour is cold pressed coffee, some cocoa, roasted malts, some sweetness and a mild carbonation that works well. Well balanced for a coffee beer but average for a stout.
