Purchased in the Outer Banks during my beach vacation. Poured into a wine glass. Beautiful bottle.

Tastes like an Irish stout, but is categorized as an American stout. Easy drinking. IMO do not drink this one too cold. Let this one warm up.

A - Pours an opaque dark brown with half a finger head, which dissipates almost immediately. Well carbonated so you call always swirl to bring back the head. 3.25
S - Nice roasted coffee and malt. 3.25
T - Cold coffee, bitter, burnt malt, tinch of sweetness, faint dark chocolate. 3.75
MF - Thin(-), medium light, dry finish. 3.5

Poured into an 8 oz. glass nearly jet black except for a some ruby highlights when held up,a thinner beige head atop.Dry earthiness and french roast coffee in the nose,very dry.Dry and earthy on the palate,maybe to dry,tated almost dirty with no sweetness to counter-balance dry earthiness and roast.I like a dryer earthy stout but this may have been a little over the top in the category for me.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is fudgy chocolate malts with a lot of nice roast coffee.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts some some slightly acidic roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.

Overall, a decent coffee stout.

32 ounce growler purchased this evening at Carmine St. Beer in NYC, NY.

Pours dark dark brown, loose dark mocha head, that stays decently, and then goes to a frothy film and leaves ample high tongues of stick.

Milk chocolate and cafe au lait nose.

Medium to lighter bodied for a stout.

More chocolate and muted coffee notes. Smooth, quite easy and pleasant drinking.

More coffee grounds come out as it warms up a bit. Nice stout, that worth trying...

Pours deep dark brown under a 1” fairly persistent, lacy foam cap. Starts on the palate creamy and grainy and then shifts to coffee and darker roast grain. The coffee and roast are not bitter or harsh and are well balanced by the grains. Average to a little above average carbonation, medium to a little above medium body.

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

Big rich light brown head settles into a nice lacing above a clear super dark brown to black colored beer.

Rich black coffee to coffee grounds aroma with any cream or sugar.

Big black coffee taste with some of the dark roasted malt characteristics coming through nicely.

A dryish after taste with the feel of a creamy bakers chocolate on this full bodied stout.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker but this stuff might help sway me.
