3.65/5 rDev -4.2%
Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that goes up 3/4 of the glass. The head turns more creamy and khaki colored as it dissipates. Big sweet and roasty aroma, definite bitter roast on the smell, some brown sugar and chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Big sweet malts up front that fades into a super smokey roasty flavor that envelopes the palate. Lots of dark sugars and a hint of chocolate, but mainly roasty malts all over. Thinner than expected, a medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. This came off on the cloying side somehow behind the roast, and a bit alcoholic. Meh.

3.48/5 rDev -8.7%
A: Thick black with no light coming through the glass. Medium thick tan head.
S: Sweet sweet chocolate, raisins, and booze.
T: Super sweet sugary chocolate, prunes, raisins, licorice candy, cherry syrup, booze, coffee bean, espresso. The flavor is too sweet and boozy for me, not like a solid tasting stout.
M: Thick and velvet like but not a heavy thick- more so a smooth thickness. Very cloying.
O: A bit of a disappointment due to the extreme sweetness and booze that shines through a little too much. But it's complex in flavor no doubt and the mouth feel is pleasant.

3.74/5 rDev -1.8%
Unmarked bottle at 55 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of coffee with hint of alcohol
Head large (6.5 cm), light brown, rocky, slowly diminishing to a partial layer with a 0-10 mm edge.
Lacing present as small islands and archipelagoes
Body dark brown with slight reddish tinge around edges
Flavor of weak stale coffee without the bitterness, actually somewhat sweet. No alcohol, no malt, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends slightly sweet and flavorless.
Palate medium to full, lightly creamy, carbonation soft.
Not a bad example of a coffee stout, just a little weak in flavor. The 13.1% ABV is well hidden – I don’t even have an alcohol afterglow in my stomach.
