2.99/5 rDev -18.8%
12 oz bottle into Deschutes tulip snifter
A - Not much head, retention, or lacing - but some. Beer is a very dark brown/ruby with bits of khaki foam.
S - Slighty burnt coffee grind character, bits of sweet dark malt. Nothing that offensive, really, but not much to write about.
T - The coffee flavor is dominant, but it has that same kind of wet coffee grind character. Tastes a lot like carbonated coffee, but not particularly good coffee.
M - Not as oily as I'd like, but not bad. Carbonation is a little off - closer to a cola than an American Stout. It's ok.
O - Drinkable but not impressive. Concept is ok, but they need a better coffee component if they do it again. As is... Next, please!

Served on tap in a sample glass.
Appearance: Dark brown color, with a thin brown head. Very little lacing on the glass.
Smell: Malts, Coffee, some chocolate. Not overpowering, but great smell to it.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth and medium to full bodied. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and malts that were well balanced.
Overall: Great take on a coffee type stout, one of the better stouts I have had lately.
