4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by Bri and Courtney, huge thanks for cracking this awesome coffee brew. Poured jet black with thin beige head. Very lasting foam with great lacing. Aromas are tons of earthy pepper, green coffee, espresso, milk chocolate, and roast. Flavor is about the same with lots of mocha and green vegetable notes. Creamy mouthfeel with medium body. One of the best coffee beers I have tried so far. Reminded me of cubano espresso from cigar city but more coffee and balance.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Aroma of roasted malt and mocha. Opaque brown/black color, brown head that sticks at 1", sheets of lace. Taste is creamy roasted malt that moves through suitably light carbonation to solid bittersweet mocha. Full-bodied, perfectly balanced, complex, and light in the belly. Highly recommended.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle, stamp on the label says 10/31/16. I’m assuming that’s the bottled on date since Short’s website says this brew was a November 2016 release. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like coffee, cream, roasted malt and some chocolate. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, it’s all coffee, cream, roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. I think it’s more bitter than sweet, and that’s fine with me! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee stout, I’ll see if I can find a 6-pack of this one to buy. $2.79 a single bottle.
