4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7 oz bottle poured to a snifter. Almost black, but a very dark brown hue. Very beautiful dark tan head that’s slightly sticky. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste holds true to the aroma, with some fruitiness as well. Sweet with a light bitter. The taste gets bigger as the beer warms. Very high alcohol (13.1%) but the sweetness masks it. Very enjoyable. I’ve not had a coffee stout that was so sweet, and yet held on to the robust expectation. Nicely done.

Bottle. Pitch black pour with a big mocha head. Caramel, coffee, roast, cocoa, black cherries. Big bitter sweet body. High in acidity but balances well with the hint of sweetness and carbonation. Hides the alcohol well. Very complex during the finish
