2012 Vintage into Kuhnhenn tulip

Thanks LiquidDegenerate

Pour: A typical dark pour but the darkness on this one for some reason exudes a creaminess to me. A nice finger of chocolate milk colored head that is persistent.

Smell: Up front there is a nice coffee aroma that is neither bitter nor sweet. It is a great balanced coffee aroma with some of the typical players: chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla.

Taste: Like the nose with the coffee the main player and in the background chocolate, molasses, a touch of vanilla, and the roasted notes. I find it somewhat astringent and more bitter than I'd like. I find it actually somewhat artificial tasting.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied but a little let down because I find it a little too thin. It is creamy and smooth albeit a little astringent to me.

Overall: Can't help but to compare and I'd take Founders Breakfast Stout to this any day. Disappointed in this one to be honest. I like it but I'll stick with FBS, thanks.

Pitch black with a creamy and persistent brown head.

As expected, loads of coffee in the nose. Fudge brownies, toffee.

Freshly brewed espresso flavor with desserts... Toffee, fudge tiramisu. Nice, long, robust finish.

Creamy mouthfeel with just a splash of boozy heat. Low carbonation.

It's one of the better coffee stouts out there. I had a fun dichotomy of wanting to drink it fast vs. leaving the awesome finish linger. Very well done.

Vintage 2011 poured into a tulip

Poured Jet black with a half inch deep brown head wich faded after about 5 min.

The aroma starts of with with mild coffee wich transitions nicley to dark chocolate with a roasty background. I can't help but continue to swirl and smell.

Taste- loads of darck chocolate and roast. The coffee is there and melds really well with the chocolate (less coffee than the 12 wich was almost to much for my taste). Hardly no alcohol warmth. Finishes nicely with not much astringency from such a roasty beer

Overall - Fantastic beer. I almost forgot how much I use to like this beer since the 12 had such prominent coffee overtones, almost like drinking black coffee . Very well balanced with a great mouth feel.Time for another sip!

2012 batch. Served in a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Pours nearly black with one finger of a dark tan, almost brown head. Body is opaque

Smell: Roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, sweet, almost caramel like aroma, along with a hint of vanilla. Overall aroma is strong and very appealing.

Taste: Follows that nose, though not as complex. Roasted malt and coffee are the most notable characteristics. In addition there are notes of dark chocolate, malt sweetness, earthy hops and ends with a roasted coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Lighter end of full bodied, with a soft, creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium, and probably just right for this beer.

Overall: A must have for any one who enjoys coffee stouts. This is often compared to Founders Breakfast Stout, and while I would personally give FBS the edge, this isn't far behind.
