4.25/5  rDev +16.4%

Look: Pitch black, poured into a snifter with little, and quick fading head. Fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Fresh roasted coffee. Has a sugary sweetness to it, like sweet cream, almost like a milk stout.

Taste: Deep roasted coffee flavor, a touch of chocolate, and sweet cream. Very little hop bitterness, which I like. All the bitterness come from the coffee beans, as I feel it should with a coffee stout.

Feel: Very full bodied with medium carbonation, just the way I like it

Overall: Excellent beer. Better than I expected. I'll likely go out and pick up another bottle eventually.

I don't like that Beer Advocate has changed their format for reviewing. Not cool But here we go.

A (3/5)- Black with a red-ish hugh around the bottom of the glass. Has a thick tan head when poured down the middle of the glass, and just a fine rim when tilted. Looks like a traditional stout for sure.

S (4/5)- Dry for the most part, but it is semi sweet. It's got some milk chocolatey sweetness and dark roasted coffee in there. A swirl of the glass brings out the roasted coffee notes more. The scent is front and center, but it doesn't overpower at all. Has the dry roastyness like a Guinness or Murphy's as well.

T (4/5)- Coffee flavor is not as smokey/dark roasted as in the nose, but roasted coffee is there for sure. Sort of has a melted milk chocolate bar type flavor as well. Light dark fruit towards the end, but I might be stretching a tad to find that. Hops are not detectable, but I think that is just the style to not be hop forward. Outstanding! Drink this when cold!

M (3.75/5)- Body is towards the medium side. But it is still a very drinkable beer. Pretty crisp and carbonated as well. Finish really is dry and slightly watery like a Guinness, but not too thin. Can't complain on the mouthfeel.

Another awesome beer from San Diego. I'm convinced any beer brewed in San Diego is going to be amazing, and this one did not let up. This beer is absolutely amazing in every way possible. Would I want it on a hot day to cool me down? No. But it's a chocolate and coffee lover's dream come true. If you like Young's Double Chocolate Stout, this beer is very comparable to that, and that's my favorite beer of all time! GO GET THIS!
