4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is too good to be served in tall boy cans. That was my first thought at tasting this. This is the beer where, if you were a kid and you tried this youíd wonder what the hell was wrong with adults, how they could drink this. This stuff is levels of intense-ness.
Aroma is deep coffee, earth, yet citrus and grass linger too. Taste is the same, huge, HUGE bitter and dry aftertaste, caramel, chocolate, coffee, nuts, toast, leather, woody, itís all represented here.
I drank it from the can but next time itís going in a glass so I can see it.

Canned. Is there a better canned coffee stout? I doubt it very much. This stuff rocks with fresh roasted coffee flavor and aroma. Highly recommended for all coffeeholics type people.
