COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The thing about stouts made with additions of things like coffee is, while they taste "just like coffee," they taste "just like coffee." A well constructed stout is a study of potential flavors. Both bitter and sweet at once, with just four ingredients aromas can ping-pong between: coffee, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, dark fruits, molasses, and myriad others without running over each other. Drink Unjunct and don’t ask us to treat this one.

16 oz can dated 12/15/2017 and brewed at Two Roads, thanks Kyle! Black appearance with a lingering tan head. Aroma roasted malt, mild chocolate notes and light coffee/espresso. Similar flavor, rich, dark and malty with a nice bittersweet balance. Medium to full body with a pleasant feel and a lingering roasted malt finish.

A not so complex stout where the main feature is coffee and where that same coffee is rather unpleasant because it come out way too vegetal.

Backlog. Cannette. De couleur noire avec une petite tête beige qui laisse un peu de dentelle sur les parois du verre. Le nez, dominé par un café d’où le côté végétal ressort particulièrement, est complété par des notes de céréales rôties et de mélasse. Le goût est sucré, encore ici c’est un café qui ressort très végétal qui est dominant, la mélasse, les céréales rôties et les raisins complètent le portrait. Le corps est moyen, la carbonatation aussi et le café s’étire dans une finale qui tarde à s’estomper. Une stout au café pas vraiment complexe où l’ingrédient qui ressort principalement est un café dont le côté végétal ressort beaucoup trop.

16 oz can poured, with much thanks to Jow for the can! Solid stout here, and a fun fence rider between imperial, and original style stouts. Love it. Coffee forward aroma. Some slight malt, sweet milk chocolate. Flavor is bold and slightly sweet at the same time. Good roast to it. Flavorful, toast finish. Very nice stout.

Can in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Dark brown head, thick heavy dark pour. Dark bitter grain nose. Pretty clean sweetness with some brashness too. Ruddy, bitter grains. A bit sticky, and thick. Pretty big for a ’standard’ stout, but I agree it’s not an imperial. Nice beer.

I like the premise here, I’m burned out on coffee stouts and the like and usually prefer when the yeast, malts and hops make the flavors. Very dark, tar, thick tan head, like an RIS, clear and reddish. Nose is complex, dark fruit, charred notes, molasses. Taste is lots of licorice, smoke, a sweet cloying concoction up front then blurs courtesy of tingliness, hoppiness, roasted malt all blending with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is syrupy at first then as described above. Really good.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Draft at Bru Craft. Very dark brown opaque pour with thick brown foam. Chewy dark roasted malts. Burnt cashews. Chocolate liquor. Espresso. Molasses. Vanilla. Hints of charcoal, leather and blackcurrant. Not too harsh. Pretty darn good.
