4.48/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750mL bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours pitch black in color with a two finger, dark mocha colored, creamy head. The head slowly shrinks to a thick film, but sticks around throughout drinking. Sheets of lacing are left behind. I can't imagine a better looking stout.
S: Dark roasted malts and roasted coffee provide a solid backbone for the aroma. Sweet milk chocolate and bitter chocolate round it out. Fantastic.
T: The taste follows the nose with dark malts and roasted coffee beans. A variety of sweet and bitter chocolate at nice complementary notes.
M: It has a body on the heavier side with a sort of chewy feel to it, almost like a light syrup. A slight, oily feel coats the palate with the intense flavor.
O: I don't know why it took me so long to try this one. Always saw it around, but never pulled the trigger. Glad I finally did, as this is has become one of my favorite coffee infused beers I've had.

4.5/5 rDev +2.3%

Poured into a snifter, pours jet black with a nicely browned two-finger head.
Coffee, nutty roasted malts, and chocolate pleasantly greet the nostrils.
Wow, I did not expect this to be so strong on the coffee when I picked it up, but damn I'm not complaining, very tasty. Coffee, dark chocolate, and a roasted caramel/nuttiness wash over the tongue and leave it wanting more.
Mouthfeel is soft and delicate with perfect balance.
Overall this instantly became a favorite of mine. Now I'm looking forward to trying the Bourbon BA variant I have next in the lineup.
