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.
