4.5/5 rDev +4.7%
Re-review after I picked up a fresh four pack recently.
A: This stout pours a nearly black shade, with a 1/2" beige head that leaves some decent lacing in its wake.
S: Huge, fresh coffee aroma detectable from several feet away.
T: Wonderful flavor. The coffee is extremely forward, which I find delightful. The beer is quite simple in its approach. Bold, fresh coffee, followed by some roasted malt, with a hint of chocolate. The finish is where the oatmeal shines through, imparting a delicate, palate coating feel. Well balanced and easy to drink.
M: Medium in body, with a solid carbonation level. Smooth feel, with virtually no alcohol presence.
O: A terrific example of a coffee stout. Highly recommended.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Very dark with light crema-like brown head.
S: Deep coffee scent complimented by a light fruitiness that brings airs of vanilla and chocolate.
T: To say it tastes like coffee is to oversimplify this beer's flavor. First, it hits you with a smooth chocolately taste Next comes a somewhat sweet, creamy yet strong espresso flavor. Very slightly bitter aftertaste; much less that one would expect from an 8.1 ABV beer.
M: Creamy and smooth with a little tingling on the tongue.
D: Delicious but deadly. Remember that just because you can't taste the alcohol doesn't mean it's not there.
This has been one of my favorite beers of the winter. I plan on buying a few more 4-packs to cellar.
