3.1/5 rDev -23.8%
An enjoyable coffee stout, but a little bit sweet for my taste.
Appearance: dark brown, not quite black, medium, fairly rich head.
Smell: Lots of coffee and chocolate; if you lef tit under my nose, I could be convinced that it was a mocha rather than a beer.
Taste: a bit too much coffee and chocolate; lacking in the depth of many other 'specialty' stouts, but with too much sweetness to be a dry stout. This gets caught in between the two, in an unsatisfying way.
Mouthfeel: Substantial, rich, but lacking in complexity.
Overall: I'm happy to have had it, but their other offerings are better, as are others' similar offerings.

A - Luscious black in color with a solid, creamy tan head. This beer exudes coffee just in looking at it.
S - As mentioned above, the smell begins before even approach the glass. Both coffee and chocolate notes create a robust and complex treat for the nose when blended with the character of the roasty malts.
T - The flavor of bittersweet chocolate and strong black coffee blend well with the oatmeal and roasted malts balanced with the hop profile although not straying from the malty character one might expect from this style of beer.
M - Creamy and rich. Coats the mouth nicely.
O - The perfect breakfast beer. Coffee, great taste and smell, along with a little cereal bowl of chocolaty oatmeal.

Purchased: Single from Wish You Were Beer, Huntsville AL
Color is jet black and opaque, with a thin tan head that fades quickly but leaves a fair amount of lacing behind. Aromas are first all about the coffee, and then lend themselves to notes of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and spiced pipe tobacco.
The taste is dominated by dark roasted grains, as in coffee, but is kept in check by enough malt sweetness to not be too bitter. There is also some earthy hop presence, but this doesn't add much bitterness. The oatmeal addition gives the mouthfeel a creamy texture. Carbonation is low. The finish has a moderate bitterness and flavor of coffee grains, plus a hint of chocolate.
Overall a delightful beer, my first from Avondale BC.
