4.2/5 rDev -1.2%

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!

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.
Serving type: on-tap
