4.03/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Let me start by saying that Terrapin W'N'B has now become my gold standard against which I measure all coffee stouts. Right or wrong, it's just how it is for me....

A: Black. Dark black. Just what I want and just what I expect in a coffee stout.

S: Roasted black coffee. Maybe a little chocolate. But pretty much just coffee.

T: To me, when cold, a little on the bitter side. Coffee is strong. Lots of bitter cocoa and espresso. As it warms, becomes less bitter and more sweet. Leaves a kind of roasted turbinado sugar taste on the lips and in the mouth. I wish it was a little more consistent all the way through because I think it's a little too bitter cold and a little too sweet when it warms.

M:Pretty easy to drink for a 9.5% beer. Not overly thick.

Overall, this is a great coffee stout (and I do love coffee stouts!) W'N'B is still my favorite with FBS a close second, but this is up there for sure.

4.56/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.

A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.

S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.

T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.

M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.

Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
