4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with decent lacing. Aroma is of gourmet coffee/espresso, chocolate, lightly roasted malts, caramel, molasses, vanilla, and some sweet malts. Taste is of very nice coffee, dark and milk chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, molasses, and sweet malts. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium-long, coffee filled finish. Overall, a tasty coffee stout that would be nice with breakfast.

This is a nice big coffee stout with tons of roast character without being overbearing. It is gorgeous in the glass, deep garnet brown with a thick and long lasting brown head and lacing in sheets. This has fairly mild nose but a nice creamy texture and rich coffee and chocolate one you taste it. It is just slightly sweet which highlights a slight tart cherry note which works well and compliments the coffee and roast grains nicely. It finishes with firm, cocoa-like bitterness and leaves a lingering creamy sweetness on the tongue. If you as are inclined to like big stouts, especially coffee stouts, give this a try. It’s a great take on the style.

"high expectations, so just a bit of a letdown for a good brewery and a favorite style. tasty but a little thin. definitely one dimensional. ok, maybe two...sweet coffee and bitter hops. that’s it. not bad, but coulda been a contender."
