2.33/5  rDev -33.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance:
Pitch black body and crowned by the weakest head I have ever seen - it had all but vanished within seconds of pouring. Mild sediment is noticable. No lacing.

Aroma:
What aroma? Faint notes of coffee and chocolate can be found if you're willing to invest the time and effort.

Taste:
About as lifeless as aroma. Coffee is the only real flavors, and it's a decent flavor, I just wish it was more vibrant, richer. Cola towards the end. Light bitterness. Unfortunate aftertaste.

Mouthfeel:
Thin and watery. No detectable carbonation.

Overall:
I love coffee. I love beer. Should be a match made in heaven, right? Unfortunately it falls short of good in every aspect. I grabbed this in Minnesota, where Surly is available, and I find myself regretting the decision... I should have just stuck with Surly's Coffee Bender - You should too.

3.86/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a Pint can into a Pint glass, jet black with a small creamy head which left solid lace rings as things went on. It has a sweet smell like a sweet/milk stout with hints of coffee followed by a chocolate candy whiff at the end...nice really. Taste was sweet coffee with a dark roast background and a little dark chocolate mixed in, smooth and creamy mouthfeel makes it work well together as an American Stout with coffee flavor...Overall I think this is a solid offering and I'm glad I picked it up...also very happy I have 3 more Pints to enjoy later. I like Stouts and Porters a lot and when I find a solid one I have no problem saying so...4 Pints at $ 9.50...count me in!
