I love this beer! Try the Black and Tan if you go by the brewery. It's the best the best example of a B&T I have ever had. I work for the company they get their coffee from. They really do a great job bring out the complex flavors of all the malt,coffee and HOPS.

Nice looking two fingered pour. Roasted malt and slight coffee nose. Good balance of malt and coffee, all coffee flavor without the typical bitterness.

Served really cold, but was a lot better once it had a few minu tea to warm up.

Have only tried this and their American Ale and have been pleased with both.

On tap at The Engine Room. Pours a pitch black color with a thin layer of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and earth. The taste is much like the aroma. Dark chocolate, earth, coffee and some roasted malts. Coffee and some charcoal towards the finish. Thin mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Not too much alcohol presence. Overall, pretty decent Coffee Stout I'd grab again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives fudge brown with a rather modest head; just a few strands of lace

Smell: Overwhelms with coffee and char

Taste: Quite a bit of char, up front, with the coffee building and dominating through the finish; espresso-like and slightly fruity with a bitter, roasty finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a really spritzy carbonated feel

Overall: I am a bit disappointed in this beer as the mouthfeel didn't go with the style and the coffee was too dominant
