Mouthfeel - A bit too much carbonation, good body otherwise.

Overall - A good stout, but the bitterness can overpower the sweetness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: 2 finger head. Head is really creamy, dense and attractive. The head is atop a black liquid with no light penetration that I see. The head slowly dissipates leaving tons of lacing.

S: Not getting a lot. I let it warm for a bit and tried again. Still nothing coming through strongly. Maybe slight cocoa.

T: Really nice coffee notes front to back. There are some subtle chocolate hints and some dry bite at the finish. The alcohol is present on the finish and a slight bittering from the hops.

M: Smooth and creamy with low carbonation and a nice overall mouthfeel.

O: I love coffee forward stouts and this one is that delivers. This beer has coffee and a slight bitter - but there are no other flavors to build it up. Also I get almost nothing on the nose which is strange. I like this one, and will drink it again, but it is not my favorite coffee type stout.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 2/23

Pours dark black. Fluffy brown head of foam. Sticks noticeably. Lots around the edges. Nose is milky with a faint coffee underneath. Taste opens burnt bitter but quickly overwhelmed by a milky creamy smooth layer. Little fizz has a pop and a close that pokes the hop through. Better bite than many lactose stouts. Well done.
