4.1/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Thanks to GRPunk for the can, via the EPL Fantasy BIF. The can is awesome. Tasted 1 July 2014.

Pours dark, nearly black, but coffee brown at the edges. One finger of medium-light tan head, good retention and lacing. For a relatively low ABV stout, it's really nice.

Smell is coffee straight up. It's smooth and clean, but potent. The stout behind it it just robust enough to provide support.

Taste is a bit lacking. The coffee comes through more bitter, the stout is mostly char. It's just not full enough.

Feel is decent. Medium-light body, carbonation on the low side. Lingers charred bitter on the tongue.

This beer started strong, but faded as I worked my way through reviewing it. Needs more body, either in the feel or the flavor. Not bad, but didn't live up to what it appeared.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a beautiful tar black with a huge, light brown head.

Smells of coffee (obviously right?), roasted coffee malts, and nuts.

See above: This brew is pretty straightforward, coffee that is slightly nutty and a slight chocolate undertone.

This portion killed it for me, the thin mouthfeel is a shame. I wanted to see a bold and luscious mouthfeel to accompany the smell and flavors of this beer.

Overall, meh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with reddish brown hue with a quick to fade beige colored head atop.Some coffee roast and char in the nose,as expected the coffee roast play a major role,some mild molasses is in there as well.Light and a little prickly in the feel,i was hoping for more of a creaminess to the body.Flavors of heavy coffee roast with a little mocha added,some earthiness in the finish.It's ok but a little lackluster in my opinion,now on a nitro draft/can....probably a different story.
