Taste: Coffee, dark chocolate. Spicy hops. Long coffee finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with modest carbonation.
Overall: I will put this beer in the “Coffee Beers I Like” column. Not like KBS or Speedway, it’s own beer, and a respectable one at that.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a dark tan head that fades out to a slick quickly. Aroma is heavy chocolate and coffee with some roast. Taste is coffee up front with chocolate and roast and then a very bland, generic sweet malt finish. Clean mouthfeel. Nice smelling beer but the taste, beyond the coffee and roast, is boring.

Initially I had rated this lower, but I had just had Southern Tier Choklat before this so not a fair comparison. Overall, this is an attractvie and flavourful stout. Very nice.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoyed via a bottled from Outpost Co-op on Capital Drive in Milwaukee. Pours a deep brown-black with a large and clingy tan head. The aroma is a mocha latte. The taste is like an iced mocha; you get the coffee flavors, chocolate, cream and some caramel. The palate is silky smooth like drinking milk or cream. There is little to no boozy flavor less a warm burn on the back and side of the tongue. The finish is chocolate caramel. This is a new favorite, for sure.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body with a tall dark tan head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolates and coffee with a light cocoa puffs. Flavor is chocolate with oats and subtle coffee. For once a brewer was able to make a beer either chocolate added and not have that gross oily component. Medium roast. Medium body that has no hint of 9%.
