3.66/5 rDev -5.7%
This stout is dark brown, reasonably thick but letting alight light into the body. The frothing medium-brown head starts at a seemingly dense finger before the big bubbles dissipate to leave behind a foam, which in turn leaves behind moderately heavy spotting.
The aroma offers plenty of roast, notes of coffee grounds (specifically dry), cocoa, and meaty sort of walnut. It's both a little powdery-dry and somewhat creamy.
The roast offers a sort of twang on the tongue, a touch of char all the way through, with a certain nuttiness and a hint of something like wood smoke.
The feel is frothy with a bit of a nip in the crispness. It has a steely note and is thinnish for the style in its medium body, particularly as the palate combines that with the mineral feel.

A - Pours a pitch black with a one-finger tan head. Head dissapates rather quickly leaving light lacing.
S - Aromas of dark roasted coffee and sweet milk chocolate.
T - Follows the nose. Bitter dark roasted coffee balanced out by sweet chocolate. Finish has a nice bitter coffee bite.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is thin and a little watery. Dry finish.
O - A nicely balanced beer. Very light and easy drinking for a stout.

Served in a snifter
A - This beer is jet black with less than an inch of cocoa colored head.
S - The first thing I notice is a fresh brewed coffee aroma. I get a little dark chocolate and roasted malt as well.
T - The taste doesn't quite equal the nose. There is plenty of coffee and a little dark chocolate, but there is a rough, almost burnt malt taste on the back end.
M - Full and creamy.
O - This is definitely a beer that tastes better warm. I had a chilled one last night and didn't care for it until it warmed. Today's offering was at room temperature and pretty good. If they can clean up the finish this will be a great beer.

$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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee bean, light roast, toast, light toffee, light cream, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee notes; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee bean, light roast, toast, light toffee, light cream, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Light roast/herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, coffee bean, cocoa, light roast, toast, light toffee, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice coffee stout. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
