3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a thick jet black with a huge (3-4 finger) tan foamy head that lasted throughout, reducing to a large cap with excellent sheets of foamy lacing.
The aroma was of a roasted cereal malt and a strong leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, molasses, dark roast coffee, vanilla and a hint of oats.
The taste was lightly sweet, a tad bitter and very malty with a healthy dose of dark chocolate and molasses from the start, progressing with a strong bitter dark roasted coffee taste and a silky oat feel towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long while following the swallow, with a bold espresso taste fading very slowly from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was exceptionally full in body with a dry, oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was one solid tasting Stout with a great balance of flavors, which ultimately created a smooth and tasty brew with a superb drinkability…

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.

Growler from Albertsons. Pours out black / brown with small silky head. Coffee is first element in the aroma, some burnt toast as well. Coffee than takes over the flavor. Medium weight body, slick and creamy.
