Thanks to Jeff (ipa247) for this one. Poured from a 22oz. bomber into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A: Standard pour barely yields a .5 finger fine, dark mocha head that dissipates quickly. Beer is opaque black and dense. Lacing is attractive. Spotty in parts and stringy in others with nice legs and good stick.

S: Nose is rather subtle. Roasted malt, big, bold espresso beans, a hint of dark chocolate, and liquorice. Really had to bury my nose in the brew to get anything though.

T: Opens extremely heavy on the coffee. Coffee bean bitterness with a slight touch of tart. Roasted malts add their touch of bitterness, smoke, and ash. As I let this one warm in my mouth, chocolate comes up ever so slightly towards the end. Coffee takes back over at the finish, which is accented with bitterness. Aftertaste is roasted malt and slight coffee sourness.

M: Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Oily and slick in the mouth but sufficient carbonation keeps it from being heavy and viscous. Tingly and slightly grainy going down. Finish is accented and aftertaste lingers.

D: I'm not a huge coffee drinker so I'm not inclined to revisit this one. That being said though, I can see what is trying to be accomplished here and for those fans of big, roasty, coffee and coffee beers, this is a must try.

Bottle. Poured into a CCB tulip glass a dark brown color with a slight tan head that quickly forms a tan collar around the glass. Aroma is that of leather, coffee, hazelnut, and dark chocolate. The nuttiness is stronger in the aroma more than anything. Nice lace left on the glass as I swirl it around. Medium mouthfeel. Espresso indeed! Dark bitter roast coffee dominate the flavor profile in this one. Some leather type notes as well. Bitterness lingers on. Well, it pretty much is what it says it is, strong coffee style stout. Might use a little more malt to balance it out as the bitterness from the roast is pretty strong.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip.

A- pours a nice pitch black with a 2" cola colored head. Big collar of lacing rings the glass.

S- nice mix of roasted malts and coffee with a hint of vanilla.

T- big roasted malts followed by coffee and finishes with some pine hoppiness.

M- medium body and carbonation. Nice creamy and slick feel for a regular stout.

O- nice stout with good amount of coffee and just enough hop bitterness to balance this beer out nicely.

Served a pilsner glass, on nitro at Malt & Vine.

Nitro stouts are beautiful. Black, velvety, creamy lush head. This is all of that. Smell is strong coffee and lots of roasted malt.

Taste is what I wish Guinness tasted like. Nice coffee bitterness, rich malt and nice roastiness, but packaged in a nice, balanced way that doesn't overpower at all.

Mouthfeel is nitro stout. Creamy, silky, pleasant. Overall, very good.

12oz can. Pours a blackish dark brown color with a half inch of frothy light brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is roasty with some nice chocolate and coffee. Hint of vanilla. Slightly earthy. The taste is chocolate and coffee with some roasted malts. Some charcoal and earth. Finishes with the espresso. Lots of carbonation with a slightly thin mouthfeel. Not much alcohol warmth. Overall, good amount of coffee flavor but a bit on the lighter side for a stout.

App- 3.75 a- 3.75 t- 4 m-3.5 o-3.75 = 3.84
