3.25/5  rDev -20.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle
dated: best before 8-30-14
oversized wine glass

A- Pours a near black with a finger high head of dark mocha. ring around the glass after 3-4 minutes, nice sticky lacing.

S- Dark malts, chocolate, some coffee, hints of brown sugar, some alcohol.

T- Very strong alcohol / hops bite right up front, followed by some roasted malt, some bitter chocolate, bitter coffee. Alcohol is surprisingly overpowering throughout the drink, much more than what your nose tells you.

M- full body, creamy smooth and fizz until you swallow.

O- Average nose, and to me this bottle anyway the alcohol is overpowering any balance of the flavors, I have another that I will probably sit on for a year or so and see if it settles down some.

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Black body with a thick creamy light tan head that leaves lacing.

S: Slight metallic scent, and a hint of roasted grain.

T: Rich roasted flavor full of bitterness. Notes of coffee and cocoa. It has a very good flavor.

M: Very nice mouthfeel. Big and full bodied with good bitterness and carbonation. Very easy to drink but doesn't put me to sleep.

O: Overall it's a very good beer. I'm not sure what's going on in the scent department. That metallic note is off-putting but it's still a good beer. Stout lovers or those who enjoy a good cup of espresso will find this a very enjoyable beer. Overall the scent is really what takes this beer down a notch. It looks perfect in the glass, tastes and feels outstanding.

3.65/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice rich black color. Presents with a 1 finger tan head. The head has real staying power and isn't receding at all. This is a great presentation and appearance.

S: Coffee and espresso. Some mild bitter chocolate. A hint of caramel as it warms.

T: Coffee at the front moving into a more bitter midpalate. The finish is coffee again. After this one warms the booziness takes over masking some of the more pleasant tastes.

M: Right level of carbonation. Not as smooth as a TenFidy - but certainly nice for a drinkable stout. Slightly dry finish diminishes it slightly.

O: This is right on the border of too bitter for me. It might stack up as I continue along - but it is not overwhelming at first. This is a very coffee forward stout. I enjoy the strong coffee tones and the head that stays for the entire time.
