4.29/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served on tap at Barley's Taphouse in Asheville

A- pours pitch black with a small creamy light-tan head, reduces to a small layer leaving lace covering the rim

S- toasted cereal grain, fresh ground coffee, chocolate malt, slightly smoky

T- wow how is this not rated higher!? Intense fresh coffee notes with cereal grain sweetness, sweet chocolate malt mid palate, just enough hop kick at the end to compliment a semi dry finish

M- medium body, foamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, abv hidden very well

O- this reminds me of a poor mans FBS, just a bit lighter mouthfeel and not as much chocolate. Still an amazing stout that is worthy of a higher rating IMO.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: black, brown head, finger, lots of lace

Aroma: rich chocolate, but a more coffee forward nose, very roasty and decadent.

Taste: coffee bean bitterness, roast, some charring, milk chocolate, toffee.

Mouthfeel: creamy, full bodied, mild carbonation.

Overall: the coffee notes throughout are absolutely delicious! This will remain a want!

Serving type: bottle
