1 PINT can
Served in a snifter

It is black as night. It was capped with three inches of mocha head that didn't stick around long leaving little lacing.

The smell is fresh roasted coffee.

The taste is loaded with coffee. It even coats my tongue like or the rare occasion that I imbibe a cup of joe.

The mouthfeel is where this beer is flawed. It is watery for a stout.

I liked this beer. It is loaded with coffee aroma and flavor. This is my first Right Brain beer, and I look forward to many more.

3.4/5  rDev -9.1%

Poured from the can, no date...

A - Black as night, decent head but dissipates quickly. Lace is there but doesn't retain very well

S - Nice black coffee aroma, slightly nutty, cocoa powder

T - Coffee upfront, dark dark chocolate prevails, slightly bitter

M - Extremely thin feel, watered down

O - I get the low ABV to try and make it sessionable but I don't want to session coffee stouts. I think the coffee presence and taste is really good though. The dark chocolate is mentionable but the problem is it is way too thin and watered down. This brew is pretty average across all categories but the bottom line is that it has good initial coffee flavor but is too thin and has a watery presence that knocks it down a notch.

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.

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.
