3.98/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22 oz. Very very dark brown pour, not quite black. Little bit of cream colored bubbles whispy on top. Sticks to the glass nicely, but doesn't retain too long.
Aroma is mainly roast malt and coffee. Hints of dark or bakers chocolate.
Taste has roasted malt and dark chocolate as well and the coffee present and mostly dominant throughout. 9% nowhere present.
A real nice lively carbonation that borders on creamy. Solid enough medium body.
Finishes a little acrid coffee, but mostly a lingering coffee bitterness.
Solid coffee stout, definetely not imperial but the abv is a bit high for a standard stout. Still better classified there I suppose.
Nothing bad to say about this one, solid but unspectacular.
Worth trying if you like coffee stouts. (745 characters)
