Can't remember when I jotted down these notes; it was shortly after the beer was released. I had it on tap at the restaurant.
Dark brown color; looks almost black in the glass. Pours 1/4th inch head. Not much for retention or lace - surprising for CBC.
The aroma is all about the roast and coffee. Fresh ground coffee beans, iced mocha, hints of espresso. Roasted dark chocolate emerges as the beer warms. Well-blended.
Coffee is much more prominent to taste, leading things off with coffee beans and carrying ultimately the finish with notes of fresh brewed coffee. All the while a burgeoning middle is flush with roasted dark grains and chocolate tones. Modest hop kick.
Smooth viscosity carries the medium body with ease. Cascading, rolling carbonation delivers the flavors with a vigor found in very few beers I have had.
Overall impression - My fussiness with the appearance aside, Sohio Stout is excellent through and through. I hope it stays around.

Poured from an hour old growler into a snifter. Appears a very full brown, almost to the point of being black. There's a small head that doesn't stick around too long, and leaves no lacing.
Nose is very rich, full of coffee (shoutout to the Cafe Brioso guys on this one), and dark chocolate malts. The alcohol is almost non-existent. Smell is just wonderful. Taste is also very full and complex. The sweet malts come through first, with the coffee following up next. Simply very full and rich.
The body is very thick, with limited carbonation. Not overly sticky, and goes down very smoothly. This is pretty drinkable for what it is. I definitely recommend starting it out colder, and enjoying the changes as it warms, a completely different experience from start to finish. Overall, this is another outstanding offering from CBC. Love being able to get my favorite coffee flavors in a great brew!

32 ounce growler, filled earlier today. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stays around for a while. There isn't much of any lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some molasses. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, with there being a good balance between the sweet and roasty bitter flavors. I do think the roasty coffee flavors are stronger overall, and get stronger as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating with low/moderate carbonation. I think it's a good stout, I'd certainly buy it again in the future. Nice to see that Columbus Brewing can make a tasty stout too, in addition to their great IPA's!

Poured from growler. Pours black with a dark tan head. The head fades very quickly. Smell is earthy, espresso, dark chocolate. Taste is raw coffee beans, dark chocolate, nice subtle hops, some pepper. Texture is smooth, not very thick. Overall this is a coffee lovers stout, very easy drinking. The texture could be a little thicker, but I really liked this one. Keep up the good work CBC.
