Bottle from Otto's on Oakland. $11.99,

Appearance: Thicker than I expected. Very little to no head, tan foam as you would expect. Sure looks a lot like day-old coffee. Nothing particularly enticing about the appearance.

Smell: Coffee & stout, just what I expected. No acidity on the nose. Roasty, not sure if that's coming from the malts or the coffee.

Taste: I wanted the coffee to have a bit more character- remember thinking "Dunkin Donuts", which isn't a bad thing, but isn't a particularly specialized flavor either.

Mouthfeel: Well balanced for a big, heavy, sticky beer.

Overall: In the pantheon of coffee stouts, this one earns a place on the shelf. It's not as sweet/memorable as Speedway, but it isn't a beer I wish I could forget either. My biggest knock is the price. With Central Waters Brewhouse Coffee Stout bombers sitting there at $4.99 and 4-packs of Breakfast Stout for $11, I'm probably not going to fork over $12 to drink this again. Would try it on tap for sure though.

Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man!

The beer is near black with a thin, wispy layer of beige head. Aromas of espresso, roast, light char, dark chocolate. Thick and palate coating. Oily and slick, with melted dark chocolates. Booze and malt are countered by strong coffee and a delicate bitterness. Really tasty.
