Deep bister in hue, with surprisingly clear, bubbly flashes of crimson when held to light. Brown sugar sweetness and cola - like caramel hit the nose at first. A deep inhalation reveals notes of dilute mocha and floral hops. Tame in coffee character, but innocuous overall aromawise. In flavor, the initial surge of burnt barley and charcoal bitterness is immediately superceded by a pleasant, albeit one - dimensional milk chocolate sweetness. The coffee presence is present at a low level throughout, and contribute only a subtle, but rounded smoky and tannic notion that complements the residual, molasses - like malt sweetness. Thin in body, and approaching brown ale - like in that regard. Constant hop bitterness melds well with coffee tannins, and provides a bitterness that offsets residual sugar aptly. Finishes abruptly yet warm, with quickly fleeting notes of dry baker's cocoa and ethanol. A relatively enjoyable stout all around. I would've appreciated a more dextrinous body and a more pronounced coffee component. Its best attribute is its dangerous drinkability. Honestly, it drinks like a brown porter.
