4.15/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. 11/04/08.
Pours thick and pitch black with nearly four fingers of thick chocolaty brown head. The head dropped very slowly and left some nice lacing. Head retention is excellent. Aroma is roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, faint hops, milk and dark chocolate, with hints of vanilla.
The taste is heavy with roasted/burnt malt and dark roasted coffee. Plenty of bitter dark chocolate and a bit of vanilla and caramel. Faint floral hops, some smokiness, and a hint of cherry. The finish is intensely bitter.
Feel is smooth and well-carbonated though a bit on the thin and watery side. Medium-full body, not too heavy. Leaves a nice sticky coating around the mouth. Drinkability is pretty good. A bit thicker and less bitter and it'd be great.
Overall, a very good coffee stout. A bit too thin for me, but still very tasty. Definitely worth a try.
