Pours a dark black (like coffee), and a nice thin tan head that dissipates quickly.

The smell, oh boy, fresh roasted coffee beans. Some vanilla intermingles, with a nice raostiness. Slight bitter chocolate. Basically everything that I want in a good stout.

Taste follows the nose fairly closely. Great coffee flavor with a slight bitterness on the front. Mellows into a nice rich chocolatey, creamy taste (think coffee with some cream), also a nice surprising bitter bakers chocolate on the finish with a good roasty quality.

Mouthfeel is fairly heavy, but not over the top. Nice, rich, and creamy.

Overall this is a great stout. Nothing over the top, but just extremely well made. Easily one of the best coffee stouts I've ever had.

A: Pours black with a pretty nice half finger fizzing tan head. Settles down pretty quickly, but nice to look at while it lasts.

S: Tons of very, very dark roast coffee and ground cocoa. Espresso, cream and hazelnut in here as well. Smells pretty fantastic.

T: A ton of velverty smooth espresso and dark chocolate just rolls across your palate. Roasted malt, some vanilla cream and a touch of wet charred wood on the finish. A fantastic coffee beer. Must try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pitch black, about a one finger, light tan head which fades.

Smell: Fresh roasted coffee with sugar. Some chocolate as well

Taste: Excellent roasted coffee flavor, with a slight hint of dark fruits, sugar, and chocolate.

Feel: Nice full bodied creamy texture.

Overall: Brewed only a few miles from my house. I don't visit there often enough. This is a great coffee stout. I really didn't expect it to be this good!

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
2014 Vintage. 9.5% abv.

Appearance
Near-black with a 1/2 finger of brown head that vanishes almost immediately. There is some light penetration along the rim.

Nose
Coffee & cream, espresso, dark chocolate, caramel, and vanilla.

Taste
Intense flavors of dark roast coffee & cream with light sugar. Deep espresso notes and dark chocolate leave a residual bitterness. Heavily roasted barley, caramel, and raisin along with hints of vanilla and warming booze.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, creamy, silky, and smooth with a medium bitterness.

Overall
You want a Coffee Stout? You got one! Hits the marks all around. Very rich and deep coffee flavors from the Little Amps.

If you are looking for a massive dose of coffee in your beer, then look no further. Awesome coffee aroma is followed up by punch in the mouth of morning delight. Perfect breakfast beer!
