3.58/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap at the cafe in Kalamazoo.
A: Pours a nice dark, coffee color - very little head in the pour I got. Looked like a coffee in the glass.
S: Strong, bitter, cold coffee. Smells pretty good overall.
T: Tasted like it smelled, strong, bitter (but not overly so) cold coffee. Better than drinking a cold coffee, of course, and definitely caught my taste buds at first, but didn't keep my interest. A little more roasty malts and a little less coffee actually would've been a good thing for this beer, I think.
M: A little thin for my liking for a stout.
O: A pretty good beer, strong, simple flavor. The problem for me (not being a huge black coffee lover) is that the coffee flavor was too strong and,while the first couple of sips were really good, it didn't have enough interest to keep me wanting to drink the entire glass.
Serving type: on-tap
