Liked the coffee aroma/flavor in this one...but the rest of the stout was a bit too sweet for my taste. Also, the alcohol was a bit too low for a stout (I don’t generally endorse a session stout, since I think a stout, by nature, is not really for a session).

On tap at brewery into plastic cup. Pretty refreshing for a stout, kind of like a less hoppy Guinness and without the creamy head. So basically a pretty mild stout. The coffee character is barely detectable. But hey, it’s a nice patio out here, and nothing about it is offensive to the mouth.

Nitro pour at the Lakefront tasting room. Dark brown fading to thinner milk chocolate at the edges. Thick, frothy tan head. Smooth aroma: nutty coffee, chocolate, a bit of soil. More fruit in the flavor, with lots of red grape, more wet soil, a little mint and a touch of acrid beans. Sensual medium creamy body, but with fairly high, pinching CO2. Fruity finish.

TL;DR over-roasted coffee in a rather burnt (yet otherwise light) stout. The coffee is there and provides it some extra (much needed) flavor depth. If it only lived up to the brewer’s summary of the brew.......

Wanted this to be good, and really is nothing special. I taste the coffee, but zero depth, also very weak. Not great, decent, but nothing close to memorable

Bottle at home. Pours very dark brown to black. Think tan head. Aroma is coffee and some roasted malts. Flavor follows with nice coffee, some dark chocolate, roasted malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

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.
