4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Pours pitch black with a creamy, Guinness-looking head. Retention is excellent and the head is light brown
S: Delicate, lactose, light coffee, roasty and toasty malts. Seems really balanced and delicious
T: Lots of lactose, coffee grounds, caramel, toffee, roasted malts, and light cocoa
MF/D: Smooth, creamy, medium body, velvety texture. Really drinkable and sessionable at 5%

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Triumph in Princeton. Pours a coca cola brown with a creamy beige head. Creamy beer but the coffee flavour could have been more robust. Weak aroma of coffee and not much else. Flavour of watered down coffee, malt, milk, sugar. Really bland flavour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Triumph Brewing Company in Philadelphia, served in a shaker. Pours deep black with a creamy tan head. Head has great retention and lace. On the nose, the aroma is primarily coffee, with burnt malts, herbs and a touch of earth. The flavour is coffee bitter throughout with a slight sweetness. It is nearly balanced, but it accomplishes this with coffee; the hops are hidden. The finish is clean. On the palate, is it full in body with a creamy texture and slight carbonation. Overall, this is not a great stout. It is too light in body, so that it feels watery and empty. It also overdoes the coffee--I feel like I might get a caffeine rush! A larger malt profile would be nice. 2010-08-02

Dark brown black with a creamy tan head. Aroma and taste are all coffee, but the beer loses it at extreme undervarbonation and mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Texture is creamy, smooth, thick. Pretty much what you’d expect from the name. The flavour is pretty much like a dark stout, though. Bit of a beer face.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, vintage rating. Pours a black body with a tan head. Straight up coffee and coffee grinds. Very dark roasted, bitter burnt coffee and a bitter finish. Good.

One of my most favorite beers. Very dark and full, but the coffee and cream flavors are absolutely fantastic. A must have when on tap at Triumph!
