On-tap at Vintage on Madison's West Side. Poured into a shaker pint today, 3/31/2014.
App- Looks the part of an American stout. Dark black body, half finger tan head with solid retention. Not much lacing.
Smell- Straight up freshly ground black coffee aromas. Reminds me a lot of O'so's Indonesian Coffee Night Train. Not subtle nor is it complex, but it's very enjoyable.
Flavour- A ton of Sumatran coffee, not much else. Would have liked more presence from the dark malts. Minimal roast, no chocolate. All coffee. Not complex, but can't deny that it tastes quite good.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, good carbonation, very easy to drink. Despite the fullness of the coffee flavor, it is not a bitter beer. Very good.
Overall- A one-note stout, but as I'm a big coffee drinker, the one-note is very much appreciated. Very drinkable coffee stout, I'd have liked more of the base stout characteristics to show through.
Serving type: on-tap
