look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: 0.5L mug (16.9 oz.)
From: BevMo! in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $9.79 for a 4-pack
Purchased: April 26, 2014
Consumed: April 26, 2014
Misc.: Use by Aug. 16, 2014

Poured a pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Average amount of spotted lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average-to-minimal retention.

Smelled deep, dark, coffee malts, coffee beans, dark chocolate, light smoky woodfire, burnt marshmallows, toffee, caramel, fudge, dark cocoa and roasty nuts. Pretty damn bitter. Just a fantastic smelling coffee stout.

Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got rich coffee malts, coffee beans, smoky fire, dark chocolate, fudge, toffee, caramel, dark cocoa and roasty nuts. That’s all good, but it seemed a little artificial to me, which knocked it down a peg or two.

Full-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

I really liked this beer. Would love to have it again.

Pours clear, dark brown in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is dark roasted coffee, cocoa, caramel, and light oats. The coffee works well with the other flavors and never overpowers. Nice and smooth easy drinker. One to reach for if I wanted a beer with just a hint of coffee.

Pours black with a tan head. There is some light residual lacing on the glass. The beer has a really nice balance of flavors from the malts and the added coffee. A really great drinking beer though the mouthfeel is a bit thin.

16 oz can poured into a Anchor Steam glass. Smell is Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee. Taste is Coffee up front, maybe a slight hint of Caramel. Overall I liked it very much. I would buy this again.
