3.93/5 rDev +0.8%
Served from a 22 oz bottle from Vendome Wine. No freshness date. Served into a bourbon cocktail glassware.
A: Pours a fizzy dark brown/smokey black. Some hints of red hue through light. Average carbonation. Decent lacing.
S: Wood bark, cherries, but very subtle espresso notes. I would expect more of a french press or organic coffee scent.
T: Smoked chocolate and espresso beans with cherry wood barks. A little boozy as this warms up, but expected with a 9% beer. Not as strong coffee variants as I would expect from a beer with the Cappuccino label.
M: woody texture. average drinkability. More of a sipper at 9%
O: At roughly 4 bucks a pop, a solid- above average limited release. I would expect a more complex coffee profile, since it's a Cappuccino stout, but I feel the abv may hinder some of those delicate coffee notes. More of an Imperial Porter in my buds; a quality beer regardless. B.

3.6/5 rDev -7.7%
Brown-black, with a light foam, ringing the glass and with a thin layer of lasting head.
Coffee on the nose, but with a hint of fruity tartness.
While the coffee is most prevalent, there's a distinct undercurrent of citrus, delivering the nosey tart - like a light breakfast coffee. The coffee then continues dry and bitter, closing with a sharpness of carbonation in the mouth.
This one's ok - not great. Bold for sure, but lacking tbe breadth and creaminess I like with stouts/coffee stouts.

chilled, 12oz wine glass
a- opaque dark brown with tan lacing. there is mild carbonation and average retention.
s- aroma is roasted malt with mocha notes. i could not pick up the hops
t- creamy sweetness, which is offset by coffee bitterness. hops are negligible.
mf- watery for an imperial stout, warming effects from higher abv, quick finish
o- smooth imperial stout with cappuccino characteristics
i got a bomber bottle at bevmo for ~3.50. it has been selling well and co-workers seem to like it. i'm not a fan of coffee, but i decided to give it a try. to me it tasted like firestone's velvet merlin with mocha. i'll have to go back to the velvet merlin, but it was really watery for a categorized imperial stout. however, the abv saves it. drink-ability is there, but impression fails to satisfy.

4.1/5 rDev +5.1%
A: Pours a near black brown with a thin head that disappears quickly.
S: Smells sweet with a touch of vanilla and the hint of coffee you'd expect from this beer.
T: Chocolate sweetness, coffee bitterness that's not too up front combined with strong hop aromas which work well in a big beer like this one. Roasted flavours nice too. The alcohol, noticeable at first becomes much more so as the beer warms.
M: Felt a little acidic and not very smooth. A bit too bubbly.
Overall is an interesting stout. The coffee flavour is not over the top and works well with the rest of the flavours present. Really drinkable beer that I would happily drink again.

4/5 rDev +2.6%
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter.
Appearance: a black color that is rather light on the thickness with a small tan head that fades ad leaves spots of lacing.
Smells: a light coffee note with a sweet roasted malt base and a beautiful hop aroma.
Tastes: a milky sweeter stout with a light roasted malt and lighter coffee hints. There is a significant hop note that I adore in this beer.
Mouthfeel: this is a smooth coffee stout that has a mild carbonation despite the head and the abv. just under 9% it is amazingly quenching.
Overall: I personally feel that this is one of my favorite coffee stouts and at $6 for a 22oz bottle I honestly feel like its a steal not just a score.
