I am a huge fan of coffee stouts, especially big ones, so I was excited to see this at Total Wine and Beer in Midlothian.
My excitement grew as I poured a thick, jet black brew with a huge tan head. Kind of looked like the Southern Tier Jah-Vaa that everyone loves. Unfortunately, the taste did not live up to my expectations. Coffee/espresso flavors were present, but mild. Big alcohol presence. Mild hops. Kind of tasted like burnt malts in there. It wasn't necessarily bad, it just wasn't great. However, I will say that these were pretty cheap, so compared to other great coffee stouts, this isn't a bad option at all.
