Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of coffee, bitter malt, alcohol, raisins, earth, nuts and a little vanilla and milk sugar. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive coffee flavour at first with a thin feeling and a lot of lactose notes right behind. Aftertaste shows a bitter coffee note, some light roasted malt, alcohol and a raisin and light pit fruit sweetness on the finish. Overall, an appropriate beer for the style that has a bit of a lacking aftertaste, but a mostly solid beer with a lot of milky flavour, but still showing coffee and chocolate notes throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye Street NW), DC on 05-February-2015 for US$3,49 sampled at home in Washington on 07-May-2015.

Black with a moderate beige-ish tan head. The aroma contains some strong coffee notes with some milk chocolate and malted milk balls. The flavor is very roasty with dominance of coffee flavor but oddly not bitterness. Coffee hits you at first with some mild chocolate notes in the background. The body on this is thinner than you would think but the flavor is there. Overall a pretty good stout.

Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is big coffee, almost like an espresso. Flavor is coffee with a strong bittersweet finish. Main complaint is lack of body, bit otherwise excellent. Wife: 4.5

Deep and dark with a tannish brown head. Coffee, roasty malt, and hints of cocoa and toast. A bit of crispness to the finish.

Keg @ Starr Hill. Deep brown with a tight tan head. Plenty of coffee, eclair, roast, ash. Sort of nutty. Taste of cold coffee, se creamer. Raisin. Cocoa. Light vanilla. Ashy dry finish. Soft carb. Easy-drinking. Well-rounded.

This is the best thing Iíve had from Starr Hill. It pours dense, dark brown with a little bit of tan head. The is sweet coffee, maybe a little chocolate in the background. The flavor is really sweet, smooth, rich, and delicious. The finish is a little watery, but that ends up working in the beerís favor. Sweet beers can grow cloying before the last sip, but this one stayed smooth and enjoyable. It suggests a number of possibly damn good food pairings. Iíll have this again, hopefully at a restaurant.
