3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a big tan soapy diminishing head. Aroma is very sweet coffee chocolate and roast malt. Flavor is a bit lactic but mostly moderately chocolate sweet and dry roasty bitter coffee end. Feel is full fresh and lively with a partially dry bitter end. Overall very simple and not too big but very nicely done and fresh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland. The aroma on this has some moderate coffee notes. A little roastiness is also there with some unsweetened dark chocolate. Not too bad. Virtually opaque black-ish body with a medium, moderately dissipating light tan head present. No lacing. Starts a little sweet, before some coffee flavors really come through in the middle. Almost a bit of a buttery flavor, which seems to me to be diacetyl, but it could be from the coffee beans. Finishes sweet with chocolate. Lightly carbonated.

Pours black to brown without much head. The aroma is huge coffee. Almost like a coffee chocolate shake. The taste is like bitter iced coffee. Slightly thin but really tasty.

Bottle at Dodgrblu's. Aroma and flavor of iced espresso with some light carbonation. I would take this over an iced mocha from Starbucks any day...then again, I hate coffee. Pretty decent beer tho.

This bottle was send to me courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. From the 22 oz bottle this pours very black, and raised a good sized foamy tan head and left attractive lacing rings. Nose is of coffee and some chocolate. Medium in body with a highly carbonated mouth feel. The flavor is a flavorful coffee, dark chocolate, and a tinge of smoke. Finishes bitter but there is coffee everywhere in this one. Really bitter and one of the better coffee stouts. Excellent.
