> Top notch highly aromatic coffee stout
[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Costco Vista ][ $1.50- ][ Reidel Vinum XL Pinot Noir ][ 7.17.14 ]
>> Pours a clear deep brown, thicker tan foam with excellent lacing. Nose is excellent coffee, vanilla latte, hazelnut, huge tobacco. One of the better coffee beer aromas I’ve experienced. Taste is medium bodied, fariyl dry, lots of cocoa nibs, chalky cocoa powder, some semisweet chocolate bar. Palate is rich and silky, mild spiciness. This was easily the second best beer from the 24 pack Beer Across America case. Everything else was ok and meh. Torpedo Pils was a Top 5 world pilsner. This is a spot on coffee stout. Highly enjoyable. Hell yes for Oregon’s cold pressed coffee!
>!< a tad chalky, but in a cocoa nib crunchy way

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with a tan head. The aroma has a strong coffee presence, with some chocolate and burnt notes. There is a touch of caramel mixed in there too. The flavor packs a lot of coffee upfront, with a nice transition into sweet, roasty stout. The finish comes out very well balanced, with some sharp coffee notes blending with smooth residual sugars. Rich body with no alcohol notes.

From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Tastes like bitter dark coffee, burnt malt, earthy. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like earth, roasted malt, bitter coffee, light alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pretty much everything you’d expect from a beer called "double latte." Black coffee, with a thin but well retaining head of tan, with a lactose wave atop the giant java undertow. (#5738, 9/14/2014)

Bottle, as pictured. Poured a dark brown opaque color. Very very heavy on the coffee, somewhat on the chocolate. Certainly very sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a fair khaki head. Lots of fantastic coffee character. Lighter bitterness. Not super roasty. Just enough sweetness. Not super complex but really good. Always love a good coffee beer.
