4.15/5  rDev +7.5%
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

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Black color of course with a nice creamy-looking brown head forming on top.

S: I really like the nose on this. Smells like actual cold coffee. A little bit of sweet cocoa smell in there as well.

T: Coffee obviously. Not harsh tannic flavor like some coffee beers carry. Just cold, mild coffee.

M: Coats the mouth a bit. A little too thin maybe.

O: Solid overall, though I wish Odd Side would stop giving bees names that imply chocolate when they don't actually contain any (see Mayan Mocha).

$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.
