3.24/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured out more of a brown color than black. Lots of carbonation, big head that disappears into the outer realms mad quick. Aroma was barely coffee, more of the espresso that I can't pick up as much olefactory wise and some mustiness to it, from where, I couldn't imagine.

Average amount of roastiness, but the malt bill feels like I could have handled a little more. Burnt acidic and ashy qualities to it that makes you wish there was a little more barley to it to absorb some of this. It really came across like a lot more burnt malt than it did coffee or espresso. Once you get a little desensitized to the acrid aspect of the beer, the mouthfeel does mellow out a little and you can enjoy the beer even more. But still lacking enough coffee and chocolate to fit my palate's desires. Had a little bit of expectations with this one, after digging Hoppy Boy in previous years. The bitterness is just a tad too high for what other flavors are there (or aren't there as much as I would have liked is a better way to put it). Needs more chocolate and coffee.

On tap at L&M Lanes in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a quarter inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells and tastes basically the same- like roasted coffee beans, vanilla, and chocolate. For an espresso stout, the coffee aspect to this is relatively light, unfortunately. None of the flavors particularly jump out of the glass, it just goes down with really any second thought.

Medium bodied, smooth, silky mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

A bit uninteresting, this brewery hasn't exactly impressed me yet.
