Had on tap at the brewery.

Thick black stout, maybe thicker than everything else we tried outside of Dark Apparition. Otherwise not much different in appearance.

The smell was unique for a coffee stout. Lots of wood and smoke, which was odd at first, but actually intriguing. Dark bitter malt and very mild coffee beans.

Light French roast dominates the flavor, along with sticky malts. Slight sweetness, but mostly bitter from the malt and whatever hops there were. The coffee was a tad underplayed, but smooth and likable.

Very dry, what else is new?

A solid beer for sure. But when compared to the growing plethora of coffee stouts out there, this one is more middle of the pack.

Pours a nice very very dark brown almost black. A good amount of light brown head. Great head retention. Smells incredibly buttery. The coffee aroma is strong but masked by the butteriness. Taste is initially buttery almost butterscotch. The finish is strong coffee... Tons of roast and bitter coffee flavours i can almost feel the grounds ! The mouthfeel is solid and overall the beer makes up for the intense almost butterscotch aroma

On tap at Bodega.

A- Black with a frothy tan head. Nice retention and modest lacing.

S- The aroma is very interesting. It seems to transform through the course of the glass. When the glass sat in front of me I was getting lots of french roast coffee. As it warms the aroma gets sweeter and sweeter. By the end coffee was only a portion of what was going on. There is LOTS of chocolate. Its very sweet, almost tootsie roll-like at times. Lots of vanilla as well. It all comes together to smell very much like raisinettes and chocolate covered coffee beans.

T- Much like the aroma, the taste gains complexity from warmth. This beer is very sweet. Much sweeter than I expected and almost too sweet for what it is. It all manages to come together and work pretty well though. Lots of vanilla, caramel, TONS of raisin and chocolate, french roast coffee. By the end of the glass tobacco becomes apparent on the finish.

M- A pretty smooth one. The sweetness clings to the palate because of its fuller body and low carbonation.

D- Really sweet. Yeah its a coffee stout, but its more than that.

Presentation: Poured from a growler into an Imperial pint glass. Listed on the chalkboard at the brewpub as a "coffee stout brewed with Dawn Chorus (roasted at Perks.)" Perks is a local coffee shop, just down the street.

Appearance: Pours with 1/2 finger of tan head. This settles to a ring around the glass. Some lacing. The beer itself is a deep, dark brown, nearly completely opaque, with some light seeping through the edges.

Smell: Strong, astringent coffee aroma. Hints of baker's cocoa and a slight note of lactose sweetness.

Taste: Mild roasted barley upfront. Chocolate notes are sweeter in taste than smell. A slight sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is average. Impressive after a week in the growler. Body is good, kind of slick.

Drinkability: A good mix of the classic stout flavors I like so much: chocolate, coffee, and roastiness. Another hit from Jackie O's.
