look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Pint.

Appearance: Black with good sized tan head and nice lacing rings.

Smell: Mostly cold press espresso but also with dark chocolate, molasses and smoke.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, with loads of espresso and dark chocolate. Some bite at the end from the roasted malts and coffee.

Feel: Smooth and creamy with moderately low carbonation. The body is lighter than expected. Dry finish.

Overall: The easiest drinking Coffee Stout I have had, and it is also flat out delicious.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two finger tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very roasty coffee and dark malt forward aroma with good hints of coffee beans, chocolate, and earthy hops. Big upfront scent of cold press coffee along with good hints of dark chocolate, toast, biscuit, oats, caramel, nuts, and yeast. Light hints of sugar and cream. Also some hints of earthy and spicy hops in the background. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like the nose hints, a nicely roasty coffee dark malt forward taste with big notes of coffee and chocolate along with some earthy hops. Big taste of cold press coffee beans upfront. Dark roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate, toasted bread, biscuit, caramel, nuts, oats, and yeast. Nice notes of cream and light sugar. Background notes of earthy hops with some pine. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very good coffee ale. Big taste of fresh coffee with some good dark malt and subtle hop notes.
