Very hoppy finish. Deep dark color, very smooth. Great lacing
And legs. The finish, for me is just a bit too hoppy. Would drink again.

355ml bottle. Oily black colour, good sized chocolate milk head. Aroma reminds me of dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Espresso coffee and some earthy hops. Finish is very coffee bitter. Body is creamy but not very heavy.

Bottle at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. This is liquid coffee. I enjoyed it hanging out before a concert next to a scoop of ice cream, and it was perfect for the moment.

2.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells fantastic, and pours dark. When they call it a coffee stout, they are not kidding around. The coffee flavour practically punches you in the face, leaving the beer taste behind. Very bitter, like espresso. I’m sure some people who are into coffee would love this, but I can’t say I enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First off, this looks perfect. Black with with big pillowy tan head. Aroma is light and is creamy coffee. Some chocolate. Taste roasty coffee flavor. Pretty straight forward, basic, but enjoyable with well hidden alcohol on the high end for a session stout.
