Notes/Commercial Description:
Planet Bean Coffee Stout is smooth, dark, full-bodied, and satisfyingly rich. Coffee beans expertly roasted at Cumberland County Coffee Company give this stout its powerful aroma and pronounced fresh-brewed coffee flavor. Your only problem with this tempting brew will be resisting the urge to pour it in your coffee mug before work!

Poured from tap into pint at standard tap philly. Pours a deep brown mud with thick tan head. Awesome coffee aromas...straight up coffee. Taste is roasted coffee and chocolate. Not much else but is delicious. Smooth as silk. This is a fantastic coffee brew...highly recommend this one.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

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.
