4/5  rDev +2%

Bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a very dark black with a slightly brown/off white head

Smell is completely dominated by the coffee, little else comes through

Taste is very coffee centric with the coffee heavy in the finish and aftertaste as well

If coffee is your thing this is a good stout. I prefer something like Founder's Breakfast as a more balanced coffee flavor
