22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was bottled very recently. Pours fairly pitch black color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas a huge dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, cocoa, toast, light char, light smoke, and light caramel. Fantastic aromas with great strength and balance of coffee and dark roasted notes. Taste of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, toast, light char, toffee, and caramel. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, toast, toffee, light char, and caramel on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark roasted flavors; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. The big nose didn’t mirror in the taste, but it is still nice. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent coffee stout. Very nice balance and robustness of roasted flavors; and very easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

I would consider this more of a Breakfast Stout light, which is actually quite nice. It has a great coffee and chocolate presence throughout, although it holds off on the thickness and lingering bitterness that you might expect in a stout. It may lack in the mouthfeel department, yet I strangely enjoyed the higher carbonation that was present. A nice session stout (if there is such a thing) or even introductory stout for those new to the style. This is my first beer from Right Brain and I really enjoyed it!
