look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: entirely, completely, unremittingly black with a thick finger of creamy brown foam. There's a nice retention and a nice lace on the glass. Excellent.

Smell: rich, green aroma of coffee and sweet malt. That green element is quite big -- I'm getting something like aloe in there. It's rich and enticing.

Taste: rich coffee flavor without being acidic or acrid. A sweet, dark maltiness underscores this flavor with toffee, a little bit of chocolate, and plenty of ashy roastiness. There is a little bit of astringency at the end, along with a pretty strong bitterness. If you like coffee stouts, this will absolutely be for you.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess. Good, although a little more smoothness would be nice.

Overall: I really like this beer. I don't know if it's worth all it takes to make, but it's a solid coffee stout.

Black with a thin, thin brown head.

Not much nose-wise but some coffee. Not bold, though.

Dark chocolate's the highlight for me. Right up it's rich and has that bittersweet finish. Coffee's not subdued, rather prominent. Alcohol's a tad hot. Rich. For the price, I'll still take the Espresso Yeti.

Thick but grainy and gritty, which is welcome.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Thick, almost black brew. Zero head when poured straight from the bottle. Lots of alcohol legs.

S - Alcohol right up front followed by chocolate, charred malts, and then a hint of coffee.

T - Lots of coffee. No alcohol burn, which was surprising for the aroma. Tastes of rich, black coffee. Finishes with sweet chocolate on the back of the tongue.

M - Very heavy, no carbonation, and lots of coffee after taste.

O - Love the idea behind this beer. Very drinkable for %10, but a very heavy price at $10 for a 12 oz. bottle.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a near motor oil black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Nice drippy lacing.

S- Aroma is comprised mainly of dark chocolate, molasses, alcohol and a hint of coffee.

T- Taste is even more complex with a solid hit of fudge, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and, once again, just a hint of coffee. Maybe I'm looking too hard for it but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of coffee presence. What is here though is great. Smooth with the alcohol toned way down for the ABV. Quite sweet which I like. Also a bit nutty.

M- Thick, silky and creamy. Medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- This beer certainly lives up to the hype. While the coffee is not as dominant as I was expecting, it turned out to be a good thing since all the other flavors were able to come through as well.

Picked up a 330 mL bottle of this the other day and have been looking forward to the weekend to try it out. Poured into a tulip.

A: Dark black with with two fingers worth of bubbly brown head after a semi aggressive center pour. Head sticks around for a bit and and when swirled leaves some nice lacing along the inside of the glass which soon slips back into the beer.

S: Smell is reminiscent of coffee but not quite like a fresh cup nor fresh beans, but rather some combination of light, acidic, and bitter coffee. Some lighter chocolate tones in there beneath the coffee

T: roast coffee, chocolate, hoppiness at the end that lingers along with some of the bitter coffee. Quite delightful really.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Medium body. Slides down smoothly.

O: A very interesting and delicious beer. The acidity hides the ABV well. A great sipper for, as the name of the beer describes, brunch!
