3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque dark brown with a thick, pillowy tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts, sweet overall but rather restrained. Taste is another matter completely, with an assertive coffee flavor dominating. Acidity of the coffee is rather high, making for a sour-sweet flavor. Sweetness of the malts adds to this profile, but there is also some bitterness noticeable as a result. Mouthfeel is a bit thick but far from oily, with a sharp tingling from the carbonation. In conclusion, I wouldn’t call this a great stout, but it is definitely a great coffee beer. One for the coffee geeks.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
I like it, slight malt with low acidity, noble hoops and soft caramel for an unmistakably American stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Pours a black-brown complexion with minimal tan head, no lacing. Aroma of black coffee and sweet malt. The flavor is sweet malt, well roasted with some stale coffee. Not bad considering the style is not imperial. Just somewhat flat.

I think I may have gotten an old bottle from Woodman’s. This one was extremely flat and tasted stale. It was pretty much like drinking cheap coffee on a Monday morning that was leftover from Friday.

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium off white head. Aroma was a bit fruity, milk chocolate, lactose and just a hint of coffee. Flavor of milk chocolate, mocha, roasted malt and hints of burnt toast.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Deli Lama, amazed not rated yet. Pours opaque black with a foamy tan head. Nice spots of lace. Aroma is huge coffee with some caramel and expresso. Very luscious. Taste is of roast and subtle caramel, some chocolate later in the flavor down through the glass. A bit thin. Medium bodied. Light for a stout. Finishes nicely bittersweet with some length. A lot of great parts; if it was thicker it would be world class.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is espresso and roasted malts. Flavor is the same, very coffee forward, just a bit of tobacco. Light sweet, light roasty bitterness. Some acidity from the coffee. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. This is a pretty nice beer not sure why the ratings are so low.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and bit of barley. Taste follows with roasted malt, coffee and some chocolate and the stout warms. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth but with a slight;y grainy feel. Decent beer for the style although it didn’t come across as a Sweet Stout.

Great color and aroma. Black with stout and coffee flavor. Mild carbonation a plus. organic beer, but a good brew despite that.
