12oz bottle poured into a glass. Vintage 2012

A: Pours a very dark brownish black with a half finger dark tan head. Some visible carbonation visible. Not really any lacing.

S: Coffee, roasted malt, almost a peppery spice to this as well.

T: Quite a balanced beer. Coffee isn't as strong as anticipated. More of a roastiness and dark fruitiness. Oatmeal in there as well as chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent bitterness from the hops.

M: Very smooth full body with a creamy mouthfeel. On the low end of carbonation. Clean finish. Very easy drinking.

Overall a real tasty brew that I think may be better a little closer to its season. I know coffee is a flavor that tends to fade with time and I think that has happened with this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Dark brown/black with a nice dark tan head. The head dissipates a little too quickly.

Smell: Mainly molasses, burnt toast, sweet toasted nuts.

Taste: Coffee with a shot of blended molasses, raisins, & PGA.

Mouthfeel: Perfect for a stout. Thick, rich, chewy, foamy.

The beer is too rich and alcoholic to my system to enjoy. A lot of people will love this beer but I'd have to water it down to have a chance to enjoy it more.

A-Pitch black like all stouts. Coffee colored, carbonated head with poor retention.

S-Freshly ground coffee is overwhelming albeit in a good way. Malted barley and hops make a small presence. Astringent alcohol becomes profound as the brew warms. Delicious smelling brew.

T-Follows the nose. Strong, bitter coffee and a sweet malty background and an alcoholic bite. Absolutely fantastic.

MF-Crisp and refreshing for a stout. Not as rich as I'd like it.

O-Absolutely fantastic. The bitter coffee balances perfect with the malty sweetness.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Dark brown, opaque, with a 1/2 finger tan head. Low visible carbonation.

S: Coffee, mocha, lactose sweetness, with vanilla, leather, and big sweet malts.

T: Huge roasty coffee flavors, some chocolate malts, and a fair amount of bitterness (roasted or hops? Can't decide) to balance the lactose sweetness. Finishes dry with more burnt coffee bitterness in the hang.

M: Thick body as is standard for oatmeal stout, creamy mouthfeel, mild alcohol presence, good carbonation sensation.

O: Quite tasty, and exactly what you'd expect going into it. Recommended, and glad I have a few more.
