4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brook-Falls Discount. Pours a very, very dark brown with a tannish head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has rich luxurious coffee with a lot of chocolate and caramel, and a nutty presence. Wow! Taste is of roasted malts, strong bitter coffee, some sweet choco-caramel and bitter nuts. Strong, powerful and rich. Finishes roasted bitter with sweetness in the end. Overwhelming smell. A bit of smoothness (more oatmeal??) would make this world class.

This is a really great shelf beer for Porter/Stout enthusiasts. Don’t know why it doesn’t get more love but nice coffee aroma that pours thick and dark. Taste is nice coffee, with chocolate notes. It’s only seasonal but worth picking up a few of the 4 packs when you can. Great great great beer to grab when you don’t feel like opening a bomber or rare beer.

Pours black with very little tan head. Aroma is roast malts. Nice medium body. Fresh coffee and roast malt profile is really good. More bitter than the average coffee stout, some piney hops.Good stuff.
