look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a tan colored small fizzy head, fades at a med pace with no lacing, leaves something to be desired, very dark molasses brown color.

Nose brings a lot of coffee, just like pure coffee extract almost, a bit of a roasty toasty coffee, little earthy, quite nutty with a bit of a peanut butter note, a bit of a roasty malt and hint of char, hint of an acrid black malt note, mild chewy malt as well.

Taste brings more coffee syrup, a bitter tannic coffee, with sweet syrupy flavors and a little chewy creamy oat feel, mild fluffy nougat but not much. Lots of nutty flavors again, peanut butter, bit of a roasty malt and hint acrid black malt, mild char, and just a touch of a chocolatey fudgey note. Finish is sticky and syrupy, little acrid coffee roast, bit of an earthy hop bitterness late, more fudgey notes as well.

Mouth is med bod but chewy and a bit creamy, lighter carb through all that.

Overall mixed, coffee seems almost like coffee syrup or extract but has a roasty tannic note as well like hot brewed and condensed, the fudgey chewy and creamy oat aspect is nice, but the sticky syrupy isn't, some nice flashes and some not so nice.

Poured a clear deep brown (not black) with a what I initially thought was a fizzy head. The head however settled into a creamier consistency and had great retention and some nice lacing. The aroma was fairly weak, with only some mild coffee notes and a slight earthiness to it. Taste-wise, there was a little more coffee flavor, especially up front, with some more pronounced earthy hops towards the finish. There was a decent fullness on the palate and a little bit of a crisp hops bite on the finish. Not a mind-blower but a decent beer.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer pours a very dark, molasses-brown coloring with no head. There was no sound of carbonation when I pried the cap, either. This beer pours smooth and slick. Aromas of rich toffee, bitter coffee notes, some molasses highlights, subtle roast character, and a creamy sweetness. The nose leans a bit more to the sweet side than I was expecting, but smells good regardless. Flavors are slightly roasted forward, with a subtle coffee bitterness in the backbone. Some sweet highlights throughout, but mostly the coffee notes shine through on the palate. Very dry and smooth bodied, with no frills to distract. The aftertaste is a building roasted coffee bitterness as you go. The finish is slick and dry at the same time. Like I said, no frills, but this is a solid, drinkable brew.

Purchased at Sprouts in Poway CA. Pours very dark blackish color. Decent lacing and a whiteish head that faded quickly. Smell is really great. Coffee, faint hints of chocolate, some nice earthy undertones too. Taste is very coffee forward, kinda reminds me of those chocolate espresso beans some people like to eat for a dessert. I found the coffee flavor on this stout really nice, its the first thing that really hits the palate and its bitterness, followed by some malts and chocolate to balance it out, makes for a very pleasent drinking experience. Not a particularly thick stout, with a pretty thin mouthfeel(very much like a cup of coffee) but even a russian imperial stout enthusiast can find a enjoyable beer in this one.
