look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - perfect stout pour with billowing tan head and great retention. They got the look down perfect.

Smell - Pleasant scents of coffee, chocolate and some roasty malts

Taste - Somwhat bitter and somewhat burnt tasting. No sweetness of note, not much chocolate flavors either to balance. Very dry finish.

Mouthfeel - a tad watery

Overall - A somewhat unbalance stout that left me somewhat disappointed. Dry and bitter finish as well left an ashtray flavor in my mouth. Don't recommend this stout. So many better options out there.

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.

Pour is dark brown with a moderate amount of light brown head. Nose has a light roast and heavy coffee bean note. Clean but simple. Taste is a bit more roasted, stronger heavy roast coffee and bitterness towards the back. Faint chocolate and burnt caramel in the finish. Body is medium and creamy with strong carbonation.

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a nice large dark brown foamy head with light retention and almost no retention. Aroma of floral coffee notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by floral coffee notes with some light black chocolate notes. Body is a bit thin for style and lack some creaminess. Coffee notes are really great but body is a bit too thin for the style.
