Bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass.
Appearance is almost solid black with a very slight ruby when held up to light. Tan head is solid and lacing is good.
Smells strongly of coffee along with some chocolate Almost like a mocha. Delicious.
The taste is very coffee forward along with a subtle chocolate. There is some bitterness in the finish I'm going to assume from the hops although there is no hop taste. This is also a fairly sweet beer though not to the point of being cloying.
I really enjoy this beer. I am a fan of coffee stouts and while the mouthfeel might be a tad bit thin here, the abv is lower than most other coffee stouts so it's to be expected. I will definitely be drinking a lot of these this winter.

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.
