12oz bottle was given to me after it was left undrunk from the mixer 12 pack.
Pours a dark brown-black, dense. Creamy latte colored 1 finger head reduces to a thick film. small bubbles streaming up the side of the glass. Sticky lacing.
Smells of medium roasted malt with sweet coffee and cream, a hint of liquorish. Deep and rich but not that complex.
Tastes of dark roast coffee with a much lighter body than a traditional stout, a tad watery. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors with a touch of liquorish bordering on pool water. Burnt malts and slight bitter on the finish.
Overall was surprised by the watery consistency of this brew. Although the coffee is not overdone it is a bit out of balance with the consistency. Drinkable and may be a good introduction to the style but I will not have another.

3.7/5 rDev +0.5%

A: Pours a dark, black with a short lived dark tan head.
S: Very malty aroma with no hop aroma. Lots of dark fruit, raisin. good amount of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol notes in the aroma.
T: Big burst of coffee and cream with a chocolate hit soon after with a bit of raisin. Black coffee makes up the bulk of the aftertaste with a mild black olive note . No hop flavor to speak of. The alcohol is hidden well and it has a slight acidic bite. Finishes dry.
M: Medium full body almost chewy with low carbonation.
O: This is a decent stout. Big coffee flavor but for me a little too big, It lacks something, perhaps a complexity that other stouts have. It's definitely a beer that I would have no problem sitting back with on a cold winter night.
