$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.

Served in a pint glass at Odd Side 8/25/12.

A: Served a dark, "koffie" brown-black with a smallish plop of khaki colored foam on top. Retention was ok with a small amount of lace left behind for decoration.

S: Fairly aromatic beer with a surprising amount of chocolate as well as coffee tussling for my attention. Healthy roast as well.

T: See above. French press and/or espresso flavors all over this beer. Chocolate lends nice balance.

M: A bit thin, but then again, this IS a coffee stout and its' bittter thinness isn't TOO out of place.

O: Very enjoyable. Would get this again in a second if they brew it again.

Serving type: on-tap
