Bottle thanks to growler. Poured into a snifter. Medium light brown head. Nose is full of milk chocolate with a touch of dark coffee, but not too much to be overpowering. Taste is decadent dark chocolate covered coffee beans. a full, thick, and chewy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, slightly silky on the palate as well. wow, this is very nice. Not too astringent, thin, or acrid like a lot of bad coffee beers. This could be one of the better straight up coffee stouts I have had in a while. Thanks, Scott

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Dark brown, opaque, with a decent and lacy mocha head.
Rich coffee nose, roasted malt, some dark chocolate and faint ash.
Intense coffee flavors, highly roasted malts, grassy hops, medium bitterness, faint anise notes and some alcohol.
Medium bodied, quite flavorful, somewhat creamy but a bit solvent. Cool

Very enjoyable stout! On tasting tour at Troegs. Dark brown and small head appearance. Roasted malt gives tastes of chocolate and coffee. Minimal hop presence, hearty but not overbearing mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in trade as an extra. Big thanks! Pours black with a two finger head that is brown looks super creamy and rich. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, a little booze, a little chocolate, and coffee that is somewhat subdued for the name. Flavor follows with earthy coffee though, then comes sweet chocolate covered fruits, some nice roasted grains in the finish. Still light on the coffee for a brew called Java Head, but very nice nonetheless. Lingering sweetness left on the palate with the roast. Mouthfeel is medium heavy and pretty rich for a non-impy stout. Nice beer overall and something I could see being a nice go-to for a rich beer on a week night.

Bottle to Shaker Glass. Pour very dark, light barely shines through. Nice coffee/chocolate aroma. Slightly hoppy taste. Bittersweet finish. Nice.

Black with thin tan head. Hint of malt sweet aroma. Full mouth feel and sharp roast bite. Malt provides nice balance and body. Coffee offers some astringency and lingering flavor.

This beer pours deep black with a khaki head, smells of coffee from when the bottle is opened, other things on the nose include some chocolate. The taste is some dark chocolate first then followed by the coffee which is great. This beer is also pretty thick

You get the coffee one would expect from this beer, but for a stout brewed with coffee beans, this is surprisingly hop forward. Pine and grass hops poke through the coffee notes that overlay the beer. Not much hop bitterness, but some expected coffee/roasty bitterness. Interesting beer, I like it.
