3.3/5 rDev -23.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours a thick black like burnt motor oil. Forms a nice dark tan head maybe 3 inches. Head fades quickly in a minute or so and forms an espresso like creme. No lacing and only the wispy ring around the edge as it further rests.
Aroma: Aroma of chocolate and coffee prevail and give way to a slight milky sweet aroma as it continues to warm.
Taste: Tastes like cold coffee. Hop bitterness is hard to determine from the amount of burnt taste and aroma.Not iced coffee but that cup of coffee that got left out a little too long. Bitter black malt flavors with an acidity (probably from the dark roasted malt).
Mouthfeel: Thin with good carbonation however the carbonation seems to feel forced and fake. Sweetness in aroma is hard to find in the flavor. This might possible be better on nitro to add some creaminess.
Drinkability: It was mildly drinkable. I wouldn't particular choose this over any of the 100's of better options. I think for the money I would rather have a nice cup of coffee. For me it was a swing and a miss. I would say try it for yourself but don't go out of the way to find it.

Served in a snifter
A - It is black night. I barely got any head. Just a sparse covering of mud colored foam was on top. It dissipated quickly.
S - The smell is straight up coffee and cream.
T - The taste starts out with dark chocolate and vanilla. Then comes the coffee with rich roasted flavor and just enough bitterness to balance out the sweeter start.
M - Full with relatively low carbonation.
O - This is one of the better coffee stouts that I have had. It reminds me of Short's Cup A Joe which I love.
