3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black, dark-brown, small tan head. Bitter dark-roasted coffee beans, slight dark-chocolate notes. Earthy. Some caramel, molasses notes. Relatively subtle nose. Tastes predominantly bitter, some sourness from the roasted malt flavors, hints of sweetness throughout. Thicker mouthfeel, some oiliness, alcohol is very upfront. Big beer, reasonably balanced, pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is an opaque dark brown with a small tan head, and the aroma is coffee, roasted malts, and caramel malts. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly umami, slightly bitter, and a touch sour; the palate fuses a nearly oily texture, medium body, malty finish, and a soft carbonation.

Subtle roasted malt aroma with a nice coffee/malty taste. A solid stout. Not bad as sipping brew at room temp, but I still prefer it ice cold.

bottle thanks to madbeerbaron. initially a very folgers, green coffee aroma. turns to a more coffee ground nose upon further sniffing. very small, off white to khaki head, dissipates to almost nothing other than a film and a few large bubbles. Chocolate malt and coffee play off each other to prevent this from becoming an overly astringent bomb. A well balanced stout with moderate coffee in the flavor. not overly bitter and well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle pour into a snifter. Pours a thick, viscous brown with a light beige head of foam. Aroma is spent coffee grounds, some powder creamer, and a mild roasty char. The taste has a coffee bitterness that rides from start to finish and lingers on the tongue for several moments after the swallow. Medium to thick mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation.
