Highly recommended by beer troll at local packy. Oh boy...another coffee stout. Bitter chocolate, strong coffee aroma. Some sourness to it. Too much bitterness maybe from the chocolate. Can’t really detect much else in there. Would drink again, but not go out of my way for it. Did not live up to the hype.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep brown body with a slightly cream head that’s tinted both tan & gray. Aroma has notes of oily coffee beans, roast, faint smoke, & a touch of chocolate malt. There’s a little creamy sweetness to back it up. Taste has notes of bitter coffee beans, borderline stale with lighter hints of cream, smoke, & roasted barley. Mouth feel could be a bit thicker. Finishes with a good balance of bitter & sweet. Pretty good coffee stout.

Pretty heavy in the espresso/coffee department, otherwise pretty standard. A decent example of the style.
