look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Three Floyds:

AP: Deep brown with a creamy tan head.

AR: Balanced roasted malts with slightly sweet and robust coffee.

TS: The coffee is executed perfectly in this stout. Present but not overwhelming and not overly acidic. Oats add a nice sweetness and balance.

MF: Creamy mouthfeel, really superb.

OV: One of the better coffee offerings i've had. A toned down Southern Tier Jahva. The oats are really a great addition. Very enjoyable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On tap poured into a plastic cup.

Very dark pour with no visibility. A nice 1 finger head leaves some lacing. Smells is so rich with coffee. Very pleasant smelling. Some grains are also noted. Taste is again full of coffee. I loved this taste. Not much else really going on. Subtle notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel is somewhat full and well carbonated. Overall I loved this. So much coffee. Amazing.
