3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, with a creamy brown head. Aroma is freshly ground coffee beans. That’s.. pretty much it. A lot of coffee bitterness is nicely balanced by malty sweetness that the aroma didn’t really give away. A hint of smoke. Body is fairly light and the carbonation is pretty sparkly. Could have been smoother. It’s not really anything complex or amazing, but a well done coffee stout.

brewpub. Very dark brown, a shade away from black. Thin tan head. Nice aroma of fresh, lightly roasted coffee beans. Some toasted dark malts and a whiff of peat. Medium malt body. Clean and mildly roasted with coffee in the lead. Balancing bittering hops. Pepper notes. Chalky mouthfeel. Coffee endnotes. A pretty good one, with premium coffee added.

At the brewpub.
Strong clean coffee flavour, sweet without beind sticky.A hint of smoke, a little vanilla. A fairly neutral base that lifts the coffee into the foreground.
