Batch #2, Bottled on 5-20-2013

Consumed on 8-06-2013. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Pours a murky light brown in color kind of like old dishwater...not the most appealing beer visually. Small white head at the top with minimal lacing. A bit funky on the nose, aroma is mostly mild with a hint of coffee and overripe fruit. While its hard to pick up the coffee by smell, the first thing I taste are the beans they've added. Unfortunately it tastes like old coffee grounds and maybe even cigarette smoke. Maybe it would have been better fresher. Although the beer is quite creamy, it also feels thin in body if that is possible. Perhaps it's just the mental perception of drinking a light colored beer calling itself a stout. Overall it's an interesting and creative concoction but that's not always a recipe for success. I'd be willing to try this again, only because this is the first mediocre offering I've had from Night Shift. Everything else has been outstanding.

Too odd to pass up. Pours a cloudy dark straw color with a smallish white head that dissipates rather quickly. Wicked roasty caramel coffee aroma drowns out anything else in the nose for me. The flavor is over the top coffee with bits of butterscotch, bready malt and little else. Hints of astringency and a solid coffee bitter bite. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick bitter mouthfeel. Interesting to try, great outside the box thinking, but not that great a beer in my opinion.
