The best coffee stout I've ever had? Yes. Huge coffee on the nose. Not just a coffee nose, but actually smells like a cup of cold brew. Really great aroma. Taste is much of the same, just a big sweetened coffee bomb. Lots of chocolate and oak in the back end. Really nice for the alcohol content. Mouthfeel is really smooth with some slight alcohol burn. Might need to rest for 3 months. Nice work, Bruery!

Big thanks to ChewbaccaSD for sending this one over in a trade!


A: Opaque black, some browning on the edges, less than 1/2 a fingers width of bubbly light tan colored head builds then dissipates quickly, leaves essentially zero lacing but some alcohol legs. 4.25

S: Holy coffee bomb. Lots of bold black coffee. Paired with the coffee are roasted malts and a boozy alcohol. Barrel notes with bourbon vanilla and charred oak. Maybe a touch boozy even for my liking, but very nice. 4.25

T: Wow delicious. Big flavors here. Tons of sweetness, which is paired with a black coffee bitterness and a big fusel alcohol character. Chocolate characters much more noticeable in the taste than the aroma. Big roasted malt characters as well. Kind of tastes like a boozy BCBCS with chocolate, obviously this is a huge compliment. Wonderful. 4.75

M/D: Full body but not quite thick, carbonation appropriately low, ABV is most certainly noticeable and its even a bit hot at times; then again it is 18.6% ABV so thats somewhat to be expected. Drinkability is surprisingly good all things considered. 4.25

O: Wonderful beer, no doubt about it. I’ve now been fortunate enough to try BT, GM, CR, and MW. Out of the 4, I think Chocolate Rain was my favorite, but this is probably number two. The bitter coffee and fusel ethanol notes cut the sweetness quite nicely and make for a fantastic beer. Glad I was able to try this one, thanks Chewb! 4.5
