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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Pours a dark, near black stout. Light toasted cream, single finger head falls quickly to a thin sheet of the same. Spotty lacing. difficult to asses clarity.
S: cocoa more than anything. Quite lightly creamy. Coffee and roasted malts come thru. Hints of soil.
T: Overly roasted IMO. Very strong toasty flavor. Some hints of dark fruits. Woody hints. The coffee flavors are burnt and dry with nutty tones.
M: Medium to light body with high carbonation for the genre. Dry. Out of line for style IMO.
O: A little too dry, light, bubbly. Coffee is subdued and burnt.
