3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at Avery for their Friday tapping, thick black pour with creamy dark tan head brought aromas of big espresso and chocolate covered coffee beans, hints of caramel, dark fruit and toffee, mixing further into coffee. Taste is a big roasted espresso up front, blending into a mocha middle with the coffee lingering into the chocolate malts, sweet toffee, dark fruits in the middle lead to a coffee roast, bitter roasted finish on the end with no sign of the ABV. Nicely done coffee stout, these guys do well with those, though Meph Addict is a whole other beast.
