Can, 1 pint. Opaque dark brown with a frothy to minimal light brown head. Dry aromas of roasted malts, lactose, light alcohol. Medium to full bodied, moderate to fizzy carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Strong roasted flavors into a harsh bitter finish.

Can, 1 pint. A dark beer wifh a red hue and minimal brown head. Aroma is of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is medium bitter with low sweetness. Medium bodied with a strong roasted character. Rich and heavy coffee character, but not as strong as an Imperial Stout. Bitter aftertaste that lingers for a while.

Draught at the La Cumbre Brewing Co, Albuquerque, NM. Dark reddish brown, black even, color with a mid-size foamy tan head. Roasted malt, mild licorice, mild hops and some coffee notes in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, quite strong hoppy bitterness, ashy dryness, darkness and coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with attractive layered lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body......nose is roasted malts with cocoa, chocolate, lighter coffee, mild herbal hops, balance to the malts......taste is high roasted malts with light cocoa, chocolate, mild coffee, moderate sweetness, with light toffee/caramel, hints of dried fruits, finishing with moderate hop and burnt malt bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, carbonation almost creamy. This is a rich, heavily roasted malt beer. It is a bit too sweet for the stated style but is quite pleasant as a mid-winter drink, not quite so for summer. Above to pleasure, below to style. BJCP 7/3/10/4/6

Pint can. Roasted malt aroma with notes of bittersweet chocolate and a hint of coffee. Pours black with one finger of light brown head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavors and a bit of chocolate sweetness with a rich body and creamy mouthfeel. Finishes with bittersweet chocolate as well as a bit of roast coffee. Excellent stout!

This is a bit sweet for my liking bit it does have a nice chocolatey malt character. The sweetness highlights a certain fruitiness which is nice but also clashes with the strongly bitter finish. This seems well brewed bit the recipe isnt doing it for me.
