16oz pour on draft at Karben4's taproom in Madison, WI. Poured into a K4 goblet today, 1/27/2014.
App- dark black, thin but solid mocha head, some retention, a bit of lacing. Not overly carbonated it would appear. Nice and dark.
Smell- just coffee. Good freshly roasted black coffee that stands on it's own. Not much from the base stout.. It seems to blend in with the coffee.
Taste- fresh cold pressed black coffee is perfectly balanced with the roast malts. When I say perfectly, both of these characteristics stand out strongly here. They do dominate the dark chocolates and slight soy umami. Nicely done.
Mouthfeel- medium bodied, creamy and just the right amount of carbonation for the style. A bit sticky with a nice balanced aftertaste- both bitter coffee and milk chocolate sweetness.
Overall- nicely done, very easy to drink and balanced well. Good design considering no hops were used in making this beer, which is quite interesting if nothing else. Worth making it out here to try on draft at least once.
