Smell is the highlight with overwhelming coffee aroma. Really thin for a stout. Overall...not bad. Not great

12oz can, no discernible date, poured into 20oz glass

A – Pours a dark ruby hued brown. Head looks almost like a cappuccino, light and fluffy and creamy with a coffee color. Lacing left behind is consistent and clingy, very nice.

S – Initially muted, but notes of coffee, bitter espresso, and dark unsweetened chocolate notes are present as well, not sweet.

T – Quite bitter, wonderful notes of fresh and strong espresso, light notes of bitter dark chocolate and cacao as well.

M – Astringent and dry, not a sweet stout, finish is crisp and clean, great notes of beautifully roasted coffee and chocolate.

O – Fantastic coffee beer. I only drink my coffee dark roasted and black, this hits all the right notes, no sweetness, just great notes of bitter coffee and chocolates, just great. Though I can see how some might be put off if they are expecting something sweeter.

Black colored beer with a small brown colored head.

Smells strongly of coffee and chocolate. Slight sour berry scent. Smoky and strong coffee with the wine scent you get from lighter roasted Latin American coffees.

Starts out complex, coffee, chocolate and molasses. Mildly sweet with a strong coffee flavor. Smokey after taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a very good coffee beer.

Lighter and less boozy than most coffee stouts but that's not always a bad thing. Plenty of flavor here.

22 oz Bottle. Pours dark brown to black with medium head. Excellent lacing in the glass, and the creamy color of the head contrasts perfectly.

Immediate aroma of toasted malt with an overpowering coffee finish.

Subdued inital malt with a stronger coffee taste. Bitter (but not egregiously so) aftertaste. Overall mild for a stout, no alcohol taste whatsoever.
