3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Vintage 10/26, coffee stout made with woodshed ipa as well, strange mix but this really worked well. Pours black with a light brown head and a little bit of lacing in the glass, the aroma has a ton of black coffee with some chocolate as well, the flavor has a good amount of chocolate on the front end with some of the bitter coffee grounds in the finish, the finish also has some of the hops coming through at the same time, kind of reminded me of a coffee version of Night Stalker, but more sessionable, really nice.
