4.38/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Was hoping for a big ol'foamy head that sits on top like a cappuccino, but this head is a small, silkier tan head that dissapates quickly down to a thin sheet. Very dark brown in color, much as coffee would be. The smell is creamy with a nice hint of coffeeovertop some dark roasted malts and a touch of milkiness. Nothing crazy, but pleasant.

The coffee tones come out beautifully in the flavor however. Big burst of bold dark roast coffee both in the front and then again in the back with a balanced middle of dark roasted malts that complements the coffee very well. A touch of earthier hops helps bring a nice bitter taste in the back as well, but doesn't interfere with the coffee. There is a nice fullness to the flavor without being overly thick in the mouthfeel. It still has a nice heft to it, but its smooth as can be without being overly creamy. The two major flavor combinations do very well together making for an excellent coffee stout, even if it isn't very complex. Its very drinkable and at 9% ABV, thats saying something. Good beer here, I definitely recommend if you like coffee stouts.
