Poured from a 22oz bottle to a 14oz snifter.
Appearance: Removing the cap from the bottle produces a loud pop! The contents quickly attempts to erupt from the bottle. Luckily just covering the top keeps the contents at bay. A slow pour is required to keep the foamy head in check. Pours dark black with a puffy fluffy mahogany head.
Smell: Very little coffee, odd tart cherry aromas overwhelm everything else.
Taste: The flavors follow the nose. A little bit of coffee and roasted malt are quickly over powered by tart cherry and a slightly metallic taste. Finishes very acidic.
Mouthfeel: Over carbonated and thin.
Overall: This bottle is clearly infected. I've been wanting to try this for quite a while, but this was a real let down. I hope I get the chance to revisit this with a better batch.
Serving type: bottle

A really well done coffee stout from Springhouse. I was worried at first considering I haven't been a fan of their other beers, but this one really wows me. Huge coffee nose with roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor is a blast of coffee, some roasted malts, dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a nice cacao sweetness.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth with just enough carbonation to carry the flavors through. Well done, Springhouse.
