12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Quite dark with a small khaki head. Impressive color for such a relatively light stout. Medium khaki collar.

Smell - Coffee in the greatest proportion. Chocolate and roasted malts behind it. Simple, but a perfect amount of coffee.

Taste - Coffee up front, never overwhelms the other flavors. Chocolate and roast in equal quantities. Bitter coffee wells up in the end but subdues itself slightly before the finish.

Mouthfeel - It's kinda thin. I'd like something just a bit chewier, but it does make it drinkable as hell. Medium carbonation.

Overall - A sip of this does it no justice. A whole glass and you'll want more and more. The comparison to Founders Breakfast Stout is close, but this lacks a bit of the depth that FBS's malt flavor has.

A: Nice and dark with a hint of brown in the head

S: Perfect blend of coffee in the stout, it smells like coffee but what did you expect?

T: Just like the smell the coffee is pronounced but not overpowering

M: As good as a stout should be

O: This is really well done and actually my new favorite coffee stout, it beats Bell's Java Stout by a few points in my book, I just wish I could get this in my area!

Taste is of deep coffee grounds, roasted malt, and slight bitter hops. Super roasty, this is a coffee beer for coffee lovers. One to try, but for me I have had more balanced beers in the style.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic. Lots of coffee and roasted malt. Some subtle lactose and caramel.

Taste: Again, lots of coffee up front, including some subtle coffee bitterness, followed by lots of roasted malt, some brown sugar-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, with a touch of carbonation. With an ABV of 6.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Not bad. Nice flavors of malt and coffee with some good sweetness, but just a tad too much of the coffee bitterness for me to really, really like it.

Had on tap at Fins in Rehoboth. Review from notes.

A: This beer is dark black, opaque in fact. A nice 1.5 finger tan head that has decent retention, but little lacing.

S: Lots of coffee and coffee grounds. Some roasted malt, vanilla, and some biscuit as well.

T: A great combination of coffee and chocolate. Not as coffee heavy as the aroma would lead to believe (to my relief). There are nice undertones of vanilla and caramel. The coffee intensifies as it warms.

M: Medium bodied with nice carbonation, but slightly thinner than expected. Slightly dry, roasty finish.

O: I like this beer more than I thought I would based off the aroma, since it is over the top coffee grinds. For anyone that likes coffee beer, this one is for them. The low abv makes this extremely drinkable. Also had this infused with oak chips and vanilla, which IMO, made it even better. It cut some of the coffee and drew out more of the chocolate and vanilla.
