3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: rainy Sunday evening... Appearance: black--no sugar, no cream--with a cloudy, pencil-thin brown head and minimal lacing...Aroma: sharp and creamy (a paradox?) with pleasant vanilla punches...Palate: active, full-bodied presence that demands attention and lingers in the teeth--a soda pop finish...Taste: medium bitterness, with a balancing sweetness--slightly alcoholic for a 7.5 ABV ... Overall: not feeeling (or tasting) the coffee, this is a compelx beer that ttempts to brew two of my favorite things at once--and gets some points for the hints of vanilla and roastedness...a warmer on a soggy April night for sure....
12oz bottle Pour is VERY dark, head is thin but persistent. Aromas of vanilla cocoa dominate, Bittersweet chocolate with a slight spicy aftertaste. Above average but not outstanding in my opinion. Worth a try. brownaler (663) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2017

12 ouounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a large rocky tan head. Subtle roasted malt nose hints at chocolate and coffee. Flavor is espresso and bittersweet chocolate. Slightly earthy with sweet notes. Full bodied with a chewy mouthfeel. Finishes with bitter, spicy hops. A very good coffee stout.

Geruch nach Schokolade, Beeren und Rotwein sowie Tabak. Geschmack leider nicht so voll und rund sondern eher kantig, sehr bitter und kratzig im Abgang. unclefrito62 (279) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2017
