4.93/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12oz bottle into tumbler, bottling date unclear (2011)

Pours a black color with a brown head; there is some lacing. The smell is lots of roasted coffee with some vanilla and bitter dark chocolate. As it warms some alcohol can be detected. The taste is of a light coffee; not too much bitterness and the mellow oatmeal. There is also a hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel is lowcarb and surprisingly light for something this dark.

Overall, this is the best stout I have ever had and what I always wanted a coffee stout to taste like. Drinkability is extremely high and surprisingly mellow. Even though this review is for a bottle, I have also had the beer on tap and feel I slightly prefer that to the bottle. A worldclass beer.
