4.48/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.
Appearance: Poured into a tulip glass. The color is opaque black; no light passed through when I held it to a lamp. One finger of tan head dissipated fairly quickly to leave a cappuccino-like lacing and ring around the edge. A couple strong swirls creates a frothy, brown ring that eventually fades to tan again.
Smell: Espresso, but in no way does it dominate the aroma as it does with other coffee-infused stouts. Balancing it is roasted malts, dark chocolate, and smooth oatmeal grain. It smells like a convenience store on Sunday morning: coffee and hot pastries.
Taste: It is a heavenly mélange of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted grains, and oatmeal. At first the espresso bitterness is balanced by the other flavors, but as the beer continues to warm the espresso kick begins to dominate from sip to swallow.
Drinkability: This is an excellent brew — one I may actually consider drinking for breakfast.
Serving type: bottle
