3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
If you like tons of coffee and lots of alcohol, this is your beer. Me, I thought the palate was too thin, and I wanted more malt character from this one.

Smells just like coffee. Taste is strong of coffee, roasted malt.. with just a hint of "off flavor" that I seem to recollect from previous Long Trail offerings. Great one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deliciousness & kind of an inbetweener of imperial & traditional stout. Starts w/ an amazing opaque pour w/ a thick mocha head that leaves pretty lacing. The aroma is full of coffee & chocolate notes. The taste is coffee throughout but just slightly bitter. The body is a tad thin which makes this quite drinkable but nonimperial. Neverheless, this goes down easy on this hot day & I would highly recommend it!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Market Grille: Pours dark brown / black with a thick brown head. Leaves solid lacing on the glass. Aroma is very strong coffee, with a hint of smoke. Taste is very coffee dominant, a little chocolate, and a slightly coffee bitter finish. Full body, smooth finish, average carbonation, fairly sticky. This is a really nice beer, by far the best Long Trail stout that I’ve had.

Bottle from cellar clearing. Pours out of the bottle like it’s on nitro with a thick brown head and chunky lacing. Nice aroma of sweetened coffee and dark malt. Flavor has some coffee notes like a dry espresso and some malt sweetness. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A: Coffee, cocoa and a slight earthiness in the general aroma, plus some vanilla sweetness hints underneath the roasted malt, with more vanilla, coffee and chocolate notes.
A: Pours an opaque pitch black color with one-finger thick, fluffy dark brown head that faded quickly.
T: Very stong roasted notes initially, fading to coffee and bread flavors and the alcohol well hidden.
P: Medium body that tends to be slightly thin; light to mild carbonation; creamy and smooth texture.
O: An excellent coffee stout and certainly worth a try, or two, or three.... Lacks the mouth-feel, IMO to make it WORLD CLASS but certainly drinkable!
