4.5/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured from the 16 oz can into a pint glass. The beer is thick looking, black in color (reminds me a bit of motor oil). My Pour produces a thick brown head that is nearly 2 inches in height. Head slowly fades to a solid cover on the beer that leaves a little lacing.

Smell: If IPA's can be described as a "hop-bomb", then this could be described as a "malt-bomb" or perhaps "coffee-bomb". The beer smells like the can says - stout with coffee added, it does not lie. Nice roasted malts, with an solid roasted coffee aroma that mixes well.

Taste: Straight in line with the scent, which a good beer should be. This is like a good cup of coffee, only its a beer. Wonderful roasted malt, with the previously mentioned roasted coffee bean. The tastes are not overpowering, but just right. The only bitterness comes from the roasted malt and a bit of bitter coffee taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, no other way to put it. Thick, rich, yet goes down smooth. There appears to be minimal carbonation, yet the beer does not suffer.

Overall: A wonderful beer drinking experience. This is a well crafted stout. Purchased a 4-pack of pint cans for $6.49. Well worth the price. I'll purchase this again.

Serving type: can
