Poured into a Hardywood tulip from a 22 oz. bomber.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with about 1 1/2 fingers of tan head. In the glass, the beer looks absolutely black unless you hold it up to direct light, then you get a slight brown around the edges and bottom. Great looking beer!
Smell: COFFEE! This reminds me of some of the great east coast coffee stouts I've had. You get just a touch of dark chocolates, roasted malt, and a slight sweet smell I can't quite place, but did I mention COFFEE!
Taste: Again, coffee dominates, but you get the dark chocolates, some burnt malt bitterness, and a little sweetness that almost seems like lactose. I'm wondering if this beer is classified correctly, because it tastes very similar to several beers that I have had that were stylized as milk/sweet stouts. Regardless, this is a quality brew that delivers great coffee stout taste!
Mouthfeel: WAY too much carbonation for the style! The beer would be top tier if it didn't have so much carbonation. Makes the whole experience taste a little too watered down!
Overall: I really enjoyed this brew, but if they got the carbonation under control, this could be world class IMO!

A: This poured a nearly opaque black garnet with moderate tan head.
S: It smelled like bold coffee and cream, with some dry dark chocolate and smoky roasted barley.
T: It tasted like bitter coffee and sweet cream and dry dark chocolate. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Fizzy body.
D: This was a good coffee stout with simple but solid scent and taste. The body wasn't right, but the finish was smooth, so it was fairly easy to drink. Nice to try, but maybe not top tier.

On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location.
Pours black with a good, durable tan head that leaves lots of sticky lacing.
Aroma: black coffee with a trace of hops.
Taste: black coffee; touch of hops; faint dark roasted malts. Medium bitterness. Good coffee flavor. Very good sweet/bitter balance.
Feel: thin body; smooth; medium carbonation.
O: Well-crafted, light version of the style that's is heavy on the coffee flavor
Serving type: on-tap

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, light char, light nuttiness, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light caramel, light nuttiness, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, toast, dark bread, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and robustness of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with decent complexity and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice coffee stout. Good balance and robustness of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. Pretty one dimensional, but nicely enjoyable.
