Pours black with a finger of tan head. Nose is coffee, coffee grounds, milky, little caramel. Taste is lots of fresh coffee, roast, very smooth, a bit milky. Tasty and easy to drink, relatively thin mouthfeel for the style makes it feel pretty light and refreshing. Simple, straightforward, and well done take.

Appearance was clear jet black with creamy diminishing dark tannish tiny head, no lacing. Aromas are roasted coffee, chocolate, oats, molasses with no alcohol. Taste are sweet roasted coffee, cocoa, black patent malts with touch of creamy oats and brown sugar. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with light-medium body, lasting roasty coffee mild bitter finish. A good example of a Oatmeal Stout.

This is a very single-mindedly coffee stout but the coffee taste is fresh and vibrant enough that it is still quite good. Many beers of this style just tend to get ashy and tart and weird. This one though has a rich chocolate and coffee character. It is dry and clean and highly drinkable. This is definitely a well put together beer and seems to be built from the ground up to incorporate coffee rather than just be coffee thrown in a stout. What do I know though? Never met the fine people at Modern Times.

Almost black pour. Small off-white head that quickly falls to just a few bubbles. No lacing. Huge coffee aroma. Pretty much overwhelms anything else. Same with the taste. A little thin in the back. Tastes more like a cool coffee than a beer. Especially a stout.
