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 shared by Jerry. Dark brown pour with a white head. Coffee aromas. All kinds of expresso and dark roasted malt notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

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.

Bottle from madbeerbaron. Pours muddy brown/black with nice frothy tan head. I get some coffee in the nose...yeasty, hay. Taste is delicate coffee and roasted malt that hits in the front and back. Savory, and minimal sweetness for a stout of this variety. Lots of carbonation. Good overall sweet stout.
