4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep reddish brown body and two plus finger thick foamy head made this beer look nice in the pint glass. The can it came in was well designed as well. The smell that the beer emitted was a heavenly mix of chocolate, coffee, and hops. I didnít even need to bring the glass to my nose to smell this. The taste was out of this world, with a perfect balance between sweet chocolate, toffee, dark cherries, and figs; and bitter coffee, hops, and burnt toast flavors. There was hint of lactic sourness in the finish. Very creamy in the mouth at first with and astringent punch at the end. Freaking outstanding introduction to this brewery.

12oz slim can, from Lizardville RR, just needs a little more body to be in a category with breakfast stout, still this is a nicely done breakfast style stout loads of coffee, some sweetness in caramel and vanilla variety and i think savory is a great way to describe it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can [12oz]. Pours a very dark amber-brown with a huge cascading, lasting frothy beige head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, alcohol, a bit of sugar and some coffee of course. Flavour of coffee first followed by some hops, alcohol, lactic notes, pepper and chocolate. Average coffee bitter finish. Average bodied. Ya gotta like coffee, and I do, so itís pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours clear deep reddish hazel with a medium tan creamy head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is really all about the coffee, with perhaps some molasses and chocolate thrown in. Flavor is much the same, coffee forward and not a whole lot else. Light sweet, light bitter growing to medium on the finish. Some acidity. Medium plus body, high carbonation, creamy. ABV very well masked. A nice beer, but a bit one dimensional.
