Coffee, chocolate, and roast in the aroma. Bittersweet flavor with coffee, chocolate, and more hop bitterness than I expected. More coffee bitterness in the finish. Not exactly what I expected, but really good.

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.

Bottle. What a very dark brown color. Medium light head. Nice aroma of vanilla and coffee bean. Medium body with some bitter dry notes at end. Pretty good coffee stout. Full flavored.

Poured oil black with a thin, tan head. Aroma is coffee and freshly baked chocolate cookies. Taste is coffee and chocolate with a smooth, clean finish. Great stout.

12oz bottle from a fantasy baseball win. Pitch black ale with a small, very creamy, light brown head. Espresso and chocolate nose. Well-balanced, rich and very flavorful. Sweet, chocolatey flavor up front, then bitter, burnt espresso grounds and charcoal. medium-bodied with a light mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

"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."

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
As with other Troegs beers its a bit hoppy. Coffee taste is a little too strong and has a heavy after taste. Not bad for a once in a while but not anything you would want to drink on a regular basis

Drought. Pours dark brown with small foamy beige head, coffee beans aroma, low carbonation, sweetish coffee taste, long finish. The sweet taste is a bit too strong.
