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 donít generally endorse a session stout, since I think a stout, by nature, is not really for a session).

Sampled at the Rapids Liquor Tasting. Mild all around, gentle in every sense - even the coffee angle, which is light.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a near black with a khaki colored head of foam that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has roasty bitterness and earthy coffee beans. The taste is more coffee. Its still a fairly bitter coffee, but it sweetens up with each sip. Medium bodied and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Very small white head and minimal lacing. Taste is strongly coffee, with a bit of sweetness to start and bitterness to finish. Overall, itís pretty drinkable, but doesnít have any flavor or aroma that makes it stand out. A mildly good coffee stout when itís all said and done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Itís not the best looking stout Iíve ever had as it lacks that fulsome head my learned off-sider kiwianer had on his. However, it is a beautiful shade of tawny with ruby notes and so looks similar to port. The aroma is coffee all over. Itís difficult to achieve subtlety with such a strong component, but there are also notes of plum and cherry tobacco. The flavour reflects this without the coffee being utterly overpowering. Thereís carbonation there that keeps things ticking along. For what is designated as a sweet stout, it isnít overly sweet at all which suits me down to the ground. A likable fellow this one.

The head is robust, the body black. It smells darkmalty, coffee, bit mild, bit roasty. The taste is darkmalty, roasty, mild aroma coffee, OK
