I love a good stout and I love a good espresso. This is a valiant attempt, but not a great execution of the combination. It is a thoroughly black colored brew..with a whispy chocolate milk head. The smell is roasty, burnt, but acrid. Coffee, chocolate, and highly modified grain, for sure, but also a plastic scent. Phenols. The taste is dry...coffee is present, and some malt. Reminiscent of a homebrew with a little work to be done. Full body, with a velvet finish. Not an exceptional beer.

Served in my brand new Boulevard tulip. Awesome!

A: Beer is black with a mocha head. Enough said on that front.

S: Mocha buttercream, weak espresso, but still good. My wife smell soap infused here.

T: Not as velvety on the finish as I was hoping,, but it was passable. Coffee grounds and some mocha butter creme.

M: Fine.

O: this one was pretty inexpensive comparatively speaking. It's worth a glance.

Black with a nice light brown head, stickly lace.

Aroma and flavor have lots of coffee, chocolate, roasty malts, a touch of nuts.

Body is thick, rich, and smooth, with a nice coffee and dark chocolate finish.

Overall it's a very nice stout, not disappointing on the coffee title either. I'd drink it again no problem.

Had on tap at mad Mex

Pours a deep black with minimal head.

Has a great creamy espresso scent along with bitter chocolate.

The taste was way off from the smell and what i was expecting. It was somewhere along the lines of a watery coffee. Slight burnt malt taste.

Overall an okay brew but I probally wouldn't buy this again.

Pours a deep cola color with some nut brown color within,a half finger tannish colored sticky head atop.Cocoa and nutty aromas with some malted milk thrown in.A little light in the feel that takes away from the flavors a little.The espresso plays a major role on the palate with it's chocolate roast flavors that linger.Not a bad beer of the style,basicly par for the course.
