> 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 Iíve 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 Oregonís cold pressed coffee!
>!< a tad chalky, but in a cocoa nib crunchy way

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is coffee and some bitterness. Taste is coffee, sweetness from lactose. Tasty beer. Nice balance of the coffee bitterness and the lactose. The hops are kept in check with lactose and coffee.

Bottle. Black, light tan top. Very pleasant soft milky coffee on nose, roasty malts, some sweet milky licorice. Isnít aggressive at all, just lingering there, without being weak watery. Smooth mouthfeel. Excellently balanced. Super drinkable, leaving a long clean light milky coffee finish. Really nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Rich chocolatety aroma. Opaque black body with thick tan head. Excellent lace. Basically tastes like it smells. Rich sweet dark toasty flavor with more chocolate than coffee. Itís been years since I had a latte, let alone a double latte, so donít recall if, like this beer, a latte tastes more like a dessert than coffee. Excellent for the style; just not my favorite style.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had over facebook chat. This pours very dark and has a smallish tan head. Not a big aroma but it offers lactic and roasted notes. A little cocoa, too. The flavor begins with coffee. It has a very authentic aspect to it. Some interesting lactic notes. Later the chocolate emerges more. Just a little fruit from hops. Later the coffee returns to prominence. The brewers did a nice job with this one. Well done!

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head with excellent lacing. Incredible aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, milk and caramel. Taste is also excellent. Perfectly balanced. Coffee espresso, chocolate, toffee, caramel, biscuits and roasted nut flavors. Probably the best sweet stout I've had.
