3.8/5  rDev -12%

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Firestone Walker Teku glass

Appearance: Pours nearly pitch black with 1 finger of a quickly dissipating head. A thin tan collar of foam sticks around through most of the glass. Body is completely opaque.

Smell: Coffee, roasted malt, fudge, vanilla, and some hints of sweet caramel.

Taste: Same as the aroma, though missing some of it's complexity. Coffee and roasted malt are the primary flavors with some dark chocolate in the background. Malt sweetness upfront is balanced by quite a bit of roasty bitterness and alcohol. It isn't terribly hot, but you definitely feel the 12%.

Mouthfeel: Lighter side of full bodied. Medium levels of prickly carbonation (probably a bit too high).

Overall: Very good beer, but there are many better coffee stouts out there at much better price points. Worth a try, but I won't be buying it again.

3.94/5  rDev -8.8%

11.2oz bottle split two ways into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with one finger of dark tan head. Average retention, great lacing.

S: Strong coffee and roast aroma on this beer. I also get a strong malted milk ball and a bit of dark chocolate.

T: Coffee is extremely well integrated into this stout. Dark chocolate and roast are now dominating with an underlying coffee flavor that is still fairly prominent. Burnt malts are quite extreme in this beer - it reminds me of overly burnt toast. Light caramel helps on the finish.

M: Very thick with low, creamy carbonation.

O: The coffee is well integrated into this beer. The burnt malts are pretty extreme with some less intense flavors to help balance. I enjoyed it, but I think the beer could be better balanced.

Pours a dark brown with reddish tint. Mocha colored head recedes quickly to a thin top layer.

Oddly this doesn't smell the way I would expect a coffee stout to smell. I get a lot of fruity, bubblegum Belgian notes. I almost have to strain to get the stout and coffee notes.

Okay, that is more like it. Taste is of bitter bakers chocolate, dark roasted coffee, black licorice.

Mouthfeel is nice, full bodied but not as viscous as many imperial stouts.

Overall a very nice beer. I enjoyed it but not sure if I would pay $10 for a 12oz bottle again.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A- jet black with a thin brown head that dissipated almost immediately.

S-Tons of roasted coffee. Hints of dark chocolate as well. It kind of smells thin (mouthfeel) with a little bit of water. The coffee does smell a little burnt.

T- burnt coffee completely takes over the mouth. There is a little bit of chocolate that redeems that taste a little bit but for the most part it's all burnt coffee. the aftertaste is probably the best part. The coffee settles a bit and lasts and lasts on the back of your tongue.

M- medium bodied, no carbonation. I think if this beer was a little bit thicker it could have been better.

O- A pretty good beer but they need to rework the coffee aspect. If they are actually brewing coffee in the mix instead of aging the beer on coffee then they need to revisit the bean to water ratio. This beer really reminded me of FBS with this one beating it out a little bit.
