Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black in color with a khaki head. Nose of coffee, mint leaves, and chocolate. Decent amount of vanilla and lots of cocoa powder. Of course, some roasted malts. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, but fair amount of sweet vanilla and chocolate. Some dark fruits, plenty of roast, and bitter cocoa powder. Not bad.

Bottle from a trade with jingledell. Pours dark brown/black color with tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt. Similar flavors that work well together. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Chris.

22oz bomber. Brown black body,some translucent edges, the beige head that fades out pretty quick. You certainly get the added vanilla...it gives it a very sweet, sugary feel. A pretty good adjunct Imperial Stout....sort of like a Southern Tier beer but more centered around the additional flavors. As the bottle says, this is a Latte Stout. Tasty, but not really a beer I want to drink the whole bottle of. The vanilla-chocolate-coffee combination is massive, and there is some depth in that regard. Pretty mellow on the palate for 10.5%. Should lose points for the FIBalicious office white boy art, but I’ll try and forgive them for that.

Pours black. Tasted more like a sweet stout with some coffee apparent, but wasn’t as dry or roasty as I’d prefer. A bit sweet for my liking but others liked it better than I did.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 6/23/14 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle sent to me in a trade. Pours a very thick, nearly black, dark brown with a thick, smooth brown head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is almost exactly like a mocha with a touch of vanilla, plenty of dark chocolate, deep, dark espresso, and plenty of roast with a hint of vanilla. The flavor is the same sweet-ish vanilla tinged mocha with tons of milky dark chocolate and bitter, deep espresso. The body is super full, one of the creamiest beers I have ever had, with average, but smooth carbonation, and a very long touch of vanilla, mocha finish.

22 ounce bottle shared thanks to my buddy Josh. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is rich coffee roast and earth. The taste is coffee roast and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

Solid coffee stout. Nice bitterness from the coffee and smooth on the palate. I liked it.

a better than average coffee stout, but like many others not super exciting.
