3/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears pitch black and completely opaque in the glass with faint mahogany edges and a two finger beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic spotty lacing behind.

Slightly smokey roasted dark malt aroma that's slightly one dimensional and slightly acrid. Strong gourmet roast saves the nose but there is a really strong burnt/charcoal like presence with hints of charred toast, oatmeal, dark chocolate and ash. As it warms the coffee/espresso bean notes stand out along with subtle sweeter light malts. Nice coffee presence elevates the aroma a bit but it's still overly roasted and one note for my preference.

On the fuller end of medium body with slightly better balance than expected but still heavily dominated by robust, deeply roasted malt. Very dry and somewhat acrid with burnt toast/malt flavor along with bitter dark chocolate, ash, charcoal, and used coffee grinds. The coffee presence was really nice in the nose but isn't very pleasant on the palate. Tastes similar to old burnt coffee and is in desperate need of more sweetness to balance things out. There's a touch of lighter malt with sweet chocolate and caramel but it isn't enough to counter the heavy roast/burnt coffee flavors.

Bottles January 20, 2014.

Pours pitch black, with a one finger latte colored head. Nose is earthy coffee, a bit like FBS without the chocolate. Coffee actually seems less pronounced on the palate. A touch of oatmeal sweetness comes through that's pretty nice as well. Flavor has solid hang time on the palate as well. Not that I mind. Mouthfeel fairly creamy.

Overall, a great stout, but not pronounced enough in any category to choose it over WNB or FBS.

A-can see a crimson tint as you pour the glass. It is a dark black cola color with a brown head that faded quickly
S-roasted grains and coffee with a cram like mocha aroma with a slight chocolate in there.
T- roasted grain with a sweet milk chocolate flavor at first, that turns into a roasted hop aftertaste that goes to a warming coffee bean finish
M-very creamy, smooth, silky feel, with high carbonation.
O- as you can tell by the rating I liked this beer. It gets you great balance

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip

A- Black, with some dark ruby highlights. 1/2" brown head sticks around well, and leaves decent lacing.

S- Coffee, caramelized sugar, a little cocoa comes out as well.

T- Subtle coffee roast, brown sugar sweetness. Mild for a bigger beer.

M- Smooth drink, especially for the alcohol content. Roasty coffee bitterness and the smallest bit of alcohol cover the finish.

O- This is very drinkable. The coffee isn't too overwhelming and the oats add a nice smoothness.
