Bottle. Pour is deep black with a small tan head which fades but leaves nice lacing. Aroma of strong ground coffee, some vanilla, and roasted dark malts. Flavor is of bitter dark coffee and milk chocolate with a bitter dry finish. A little bit of booze in the finish, but masked pretty well. Lots of coffee, a little sweetness, and a little bit of hops. Medium bodied.

Bottled. Pours deep black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is quite hoppy with a decent amount of coffee. Some roast and light chocolate. The flavor has stronger notes of coffee than the aroma and notes of hops and roasted malt hits you later on. Bitter roasted coffee bean finish. Great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with thin head. Smells like a ton of cold coffee with slight notes of roasted malt and caramel. Sweet, unbalanced mouth that is over ridden with coffee. Lingering coffee roasted finish. I wanted to like this, but very simplistic brew that went no where

650 ml bottle from trade. with Marco. Thanks. Pours a black color with a medium tan head that has good retention. The aroma is strong with coffee and coffee grounds. The taste, like the nose, is coffee, coffee and coffee. Way in the background there is a trace of mocha, dark chocolate and perhaps some bitter walnuts. The palate is full and creamy and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry with lingering acidity and grounds. Overall: First rate coffee stout--Very tasty. A must try for fans of coffee brews.
