2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured. This beer pours very dark with little to no head. The aroma is a really nice coffee with earthy qualities. However that's the best for this beer. The coffee flavor reminds me of coffee left on a warmer too long. The coffee flavor overwhelms any chance of the malt or hops flavor getting through.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coffee, cocoa, and nuts in a relatively mild aroma. Bitter start with roast coffee, followed by a sweet finish. I like sweet stouts, but this isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Pours into tulip glass black with a thick tan foam. Strong coffee aroma with roasted malts. Flavor is bitter with some coffee in the back. Mouthfeel is lighter than I would expect. Overall pretty decent and drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark, with no head. Smells of coffee, toasted malt. Tastes thin. Closer to a brown ale than a stout. Viewing the label I don’t see the appeal to using the term organic. It’s on the label 5 times!!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque coffee brown with ample pillowy brown tinged head. Aroma of coffee and moderate roasted malt, slightly sweet. Taste is like aroma... strong coffee, moderate malt. There’s a slightly odd interplay among the bitter coffee, sweet malt, and hint of hop bitter. It almost comes off as slightly sour beer, not a sweet stout. Overall, a definite homage to coffee but at the expense of the ,beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, poured into a shaker. The aromas of milk, coffee, nuts, and caramel blend together on the nose. It pours a dark, black-brown color with a soft, foamy tan head that retains a medium ring, fuzzy surface, and leaves a light, web lace. The taste is a medium sweet and very light bitter. The beer is smooth with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium light body. Coffee, chocolate, and caramel flavors come through with a fruity sweetness. The finish has a coffee ground / dirt or grit quality to it that sticks around shortly in the aftertaste.
