4.45/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Quite dark, almost black, with 1 finger light tan head, decent retention and lacing.
S: Roasted coffee beans and malts with some bitter dark chocolate
T: Coffee-forward with toasty malts and some nice coffee and dark chocolate notes, true to the smell. Not overly bitter, very balanced and easy to drink. Little to no heat.
M: Full bodied, but not chewy, very smooth, carbonation is a touch too high on the front end but settles out nicely, wet finish
O: A favorite readily-available coffee stout that I have drank too often to remember. I could only imagine how barrel-aging could amplify this beer to a level even above KBS. Near-perfect.

4.48/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
