3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: rainy Sunday evening... Appearance: black--no sugar, no cream--with a cloudy, pencil-thin brown head and minimal lacing...Aroma: sharp and creamy (a paradox?) with pleasant vanilla punches...Palate: active, full-bodied presence that demands attention and lingers in the teeth--a soda pop finish...Taste: medium bitterness, with a balancing sweetness--slightly alcoholic for a 7.5 ABV ... Overall: not feeeling (or tasting) the coffee, this is a compelx beer that ttempts to brew two of my favorite things at once--and gets some points for the hints of vanilla and roastedness...a warmer on a soggy April night for sure....

Lovely deep brown with thick dark tan head. Medium roast coffee, toasted malt, hint of dark chocolate, and some earthy hops on nose. Brown sugar, toffee up front in mouth, fades to the aftertaste of coffee, then clean hop finish and some bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with moderate finish length.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has sweet, chocolate malt, a bit of fudge. Taste follows with sweet malt and chocolate at first but finishes more bitter and roasty with a hint of coffee. Body is on the lighter side but feels quite smooth. Overall it’s a decent beer with good drinkability.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour a black with a large tan head. Aroma is actually more hoppy that coffee but the coffee is there to give this a nice richness. Flavor is a decent roasted malt and a barley there coffee. For a coffee stout this had a pretty weak coffee presence. The hops used were more pronounced than the coffee used.
