This one is awesome! The smell of this beer juxtiposed with the flavor is very interesting. When I first let my olfactory senses get through this one, I thought it would just be another chocolate/coffee stout. Boy was I wrong! The sweetness and mouthfeel of this on is uncomparable. It is so smooth and yet it feels so thick on the palate. It is definitely a sipping beer and one that you can only drink a couple of in one sitting, but it is absolutely amazing! The chocolate overpowers the coffee but in a very good way. You get a nice hint of coffee in the finish but you never lose the chocolate. Just the right amount of carbonation and deep caramel color make this one the real deal! I highly recommend this for a great dessert beer paired with any chocolate or caramel dish!

On tap at Odd Side this past weekend. Served in a pint glass.

Pours near-black with a 1.5-finger mocha head with good retention. Nice spotty lacing as it falls down to a thin cap.

Nose starts out with a huge chocolate presence along with underlying coffee and roast. Light cream as well. Taste is really nice, expertly blending the notes of chocolate and coffee with a dollop of heavy cream. A bit of roast in the background.

Medium body is super chewy and creamy with great carbonation levels. Really delicious brew.

Surprisingly very tasty for a chocolate beer, fudge and bitter real coffee taste. Above average mouthfeel. Thick black body.

$2.49 for a 12oz bottle at BevCo. 6% ABV per the website. No specs per the website or bottle. "Stout with coffee added".

Pours out to a slightly cloudy black, thick layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, forming a medium sized dark brown head with good retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate, ~2.5 carbs. The nose is quite nice, black walnut, milk chocolate with a touch of tootsie roll, a hint of coffee, vanilla, marshmallow, hint of chalk. Mouthfeel is rather smooth, full bodied, low attenuation (which I like in this beer), just a hint of hop and coffee acidity with a chalky feel in the finish. The taste is a recap of the aroma...solid roast, coffee, milk chocolate, marshmallows, all sitting on top of a mild but well balanced hop bitterness. There is some hop flavor going on, but it's mild. A little herbal up front.

This is a really good coffee chocolate stout. Better than most competitors, as it's well balanced and doesn't have that nasty burnt coffee acidity or fake chocolate "essence" twang. Recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: black just a hint towards brown. a half finger of a tan head that sticks around for ages. opaque.

Smell: big whiff of coffee, balanced nicely by chocolate and maybe a little bit of creamy sweetness

Taste: coffee and chocolate all day. bitter and sweet. nicely balanced. sweetness is a bit strong but it ends with bitter coffee

Mouthfeel: fairly light and a bit creamy. lingering bitterness at the end

Overall: a short time into the beginning of their bottling campaign Odd Sides does no wrong by me. they do a great job with styles i don't general care for (blonde ales, coffee beers, black ales.) And they seem to have a strong focus on flavorful but sessionable beers (few of their beers are over 6%) I will certainly continue to check out their new releases

$2.19 single bought at Fairway Sav-Mor in Eastpointe, Michigan. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. I've noticed recently that Odd Side beers I've bought haven't had dates on them, so I don't know what's up with that... oh well, this is a stout, I'm not worried about it.

Appearance: Pours looking really thick and syrupy, which was a great start. I tried being aggressive, but I only got a really slight head at the end that went away quickly. Zero lacing. Very disappointed in the appearance of this one. It's worth noting that there is a *significant* amount of floaters and sediment in this beer. As pitch black as it is, you can see them floating in the darker brown sections of the glass, and a pile at the bottom of the glass.

Smell: Glorious. Nearly perfect. Truly intoxicating. Heavy amounts of coffee with super sweet chocolate that almost make it smell like a chocolate milk mixed with coffee or something along those lines. Caramel. Definitely one of the best beers I've whiffed.

Taste/feel: Disappointing after the fabulous smell, but still some really good stuff. Truthfully, it tastes much different than the smell leads on. Fairly bitter. Almost a cinnamon sort of spice note in it in there somewhere, but it's pretty faint. Dark fruits seem to be there and gone only on some of the sips. The smell had me expecting a possibly cloyingly sweet mocha sort of flavor, but I get dark coffee and chocolate without the sweetness I was picking up on the nose. The beer looked to be thick when pouring it, but it's not as thick as I would like it to be in my mouth (that's what she said). A slightly thicker feel and a bit more sweetness in this beer, and it'd be absolutely unbelievable. Still, this is an excellent stout that I'd surely have again.
