3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head and lots of lacing. Aromas of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Flavors of roasted malt but mostly of coffee.
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 This is an okay coffee stout. Very reasonably priced but if you’re looking to try a coffee beer just remember this one is a lower end offering. obguthr (6656) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2017
Pounder: Coffee and raisin nose, cocoa hints. Cola brown, thick tan head, good retention. Charcoal, pecan. Medium body, soft carbonation. If there is a meaningful difference between porter and stout, this is the former. It drinks like a brown ale with some very roasty notes. Not a bad beer, just a bit thin for the style.

Normally considered "garbage water", I was ready to hate this, even though boo boo loves Rhode Island and 'Gansett in general. Pours a dark brown/black into a stout glass like a fancy person. The aroma is basically just chocolate milk, and the palate is very smooth- almost like a nitro in texture. The taste is inoffensive and mostly coffee, chocolate, and malt... no smokiness to be seen (hooray!!!). Good for eating super old cookies and getting ready to watch Halt & Catch before snorin in booboo's armpit. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a milky dark brown close to black color with a thin cap of a little white foamy head that fell off fairly quick. Lace just slid right on off into the beer.
The aroma had that Irish coffee creamer pretty bold and up front over top of some milk chocolate and light coffee roasty notes.
The flavor was lenient to the sweet side and basically pounded the aftertaste with that Irish coffee creamer. The finish was sticky sweet.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with some sessionability to crush as thought I hate to use this word, I have to admit yes, this one is ’watery.’ ABV did feel fine.
Overall, and I thought Southern Tier’s mocha something or other was overly sweet, wow, uhhhhhh.....yeah, I wouldn’t do this one again.

Out of can. Decent if kind of unremarkable stout base. Coffee feels like outta poured on top, and one of those jolt creamer caffeine things I get from the gas station. Not terrible but no great shakes. jjgmd (2248) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2017

Medium sized tan head with fair retention and a skimpy, spotty lacing. Black colored brew. Nose of mild coffee and roast. Body is med/light, soft carbo, slight tang. Nicely done chocolate and coffee roast flavors, lil bit of cocoa and caramel, reasonably dry and yummy. Nicely dry, roasty finish. Hint of peanut and chocolate. Yummy poop! Can from statelineliquors.

Black with a dense two-finger head, great retention and lacing. Aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark berry, espresso and faint smoke. Espresso flavors up front, with a mild roasted bitterness, mocha, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Just a hint of grassy hops in the background. Medium to full body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a dry finish. GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2016
16 oz can poured into a tulip. Canned 1/24/2016 (Date Code A406), bought on 12/2/2016 at Total Wine Wilmington. Black with tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, bitter coffee grounds, dark chocolate, a little cream. Tastes of coffee, baker’s chocolate, some malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Solid coffee stout, I’m sure it’s better on the fresher side.
