Tap at Cornucopia Downtown in Eugene, Black body, thin brown head, aroma is dark roasts and rich coffee, flavor is dark chocolate, mildly chalky, mild sweetness but really pretty dry, big thick body - filling stout texture, rich coffee bean, doesn’t taste like enough to caffeinate you (try Bell’s Java stout) but enough to taste, good stout and it did its job after a bike ride out in the rain

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the Grapevine in Pocatello. Pours a mahogany color with a nice bubbly, brown head. The aroma seemed to have a touch of something like cinnamon spice in addition to the light coffee notes. Gentle, balanced flavor that has enough malt to keep the coffee in check. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 8/14/15
Aroma: The aroma is heavy roast and coffee, some burnt notes, and a bit of green vegetable
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a thin light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: It tastes of burnt coffee, that green vegetable, and a dry coffee bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning lighter, average-to-lively carbonation, decently dry finish
This is a pretty good espresso stout. Nice roasted coffee flavor. Good balance between the light sweetness and the slightly higher bitterness. Works as an easy drinking canned stout for those who want a bit more roast in their camping/pool beer drinking. Doesn’t have to be overcast of drink this on a sunnier day too.
