3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours dark cola brown with medium thick pale mocha head. Plenty of chunky sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is dark roasty chocolate malt with big fresh espresso flavor on the back. Taste is clean roasty chocolate malt, very smooth creamy finish. Espresso notes are present but much lighter than the nose. Great pieces here, a little unbalanced overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked this up a couple of nights ago at Brewforia Meridian, but all the bottle shops should have it.
Pours an expected black with a brown head... good lacing and retention.
Nose is almost all about the coffee.... cold brewed obviously with just enough sweetness to really make things gel.
The flavor is pretty damn good... tons of espresso.. hints of lite caramel and some round maltiness that moves all the different components together ... surprising flavor for a lower ABV brew...
Medium body and is sorta creamy and the small bubble carbonation is just near perfect.. This brew got much better with warmth... don’t drink straight out of the fridge and allow it to blossom.
Loving what Oakshire is doing and very happy that Boise has access.

Can poured a black hue w/ big brown frothy head and thick lacing. Bold espresso aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitterness in the finish. Tastes are espresso and bold roasted malts. Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel.

Draft - Espresso beans covered in dark chocolate. Deep jet brown with a decent brown head. Lots of coffee, lots of chocolate and and a really nice balanced bitterness. Really good.

12 oz can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a light brown head and light lacing. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malts, earthy notes and light vanilla. Similar flavor with mild bitterness and light sweetness. Light to medium body, a little thin, with a rich, lingering finish. Overall, pretty good coffee stout, although, the body could be beefed up a bit.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can pours dark black with a little tan head that disappears fast. Nice coffee aroma. Taste is strong black coffee up front, backed with dark roasted malts and a easy finish. A little toasty and smokey. Very good stout!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaue black pour with a small tan head and a little bit of maroon around the edges. Subdued aromas, but what is there is pleasant dark chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Flavor adds some sweetness as well as a bit of bitter roast as well. Thick body is nice to check on, but with an abrasive carbonation that’s unwelcome in a stout. Wish this was a little brighter with more coffee, it’s at least decent as is.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a dense two-finger head, great retention and lacing. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark berry, espresso and faint smoke. Espresso flavor up front, with a mild roasted bitterness, mocha, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Just a hint of grassy hops in the background. Full body, minimal carbonation, exquisitely smooth and silky mouthfeel and a dry finish. Loved this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Pours dark brown black with a medium fizzy creamy brown head that goes to a thin layer and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet and roasty chocolate malts with some acidic coffee.
The flavor is sweet chocolate with lots of roast coffee and a slightly ashy finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I like the sweet chocolate and roast coffee.
