2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical color for a coffee stout, with the aroma of those little French coffee candies you find in round tins in gourmet shops. Thin palate (really it has the body of a porter, not a stout), watery even. Not bad, though it tastes like diluted iced coffee - you know, the kind that's been sitting around that all the ice has melted in!
JoeM pegged this one's lacticness. Thick and rich and lifeless and yet...watery, too? Huh? Sweet, roasty, not too bad. Serious coffee. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Very rich, chocolatey and lactic...is this chocolate milk with too much chocolate syrup? No carbonation from the bottle, very, very black and lifeless. Coffee bean dryness with a slight bit of detectable hops in the finish. Too flat and lifeless, but enjoyable in small amounts.
