A beer I've had many a time and will always enjoy...
Pours a jet black with a nice beautiful mocha head.
Smell is nice and roasted. Roasted barley, coffee, etc. Everything a big boys stout should be. Hint of alcohol and chocolate.
What can be said about the taste that hasn't been already. A nice sweetness to it followed but roasted barley and you guessed it coffee. In my opinion coffee and big stouts go together like bullets and guns. Just meant to pair. Coffee is much more subdued than say Founders breakfast stout, but a great balance with the grain bill.
Mouthfeel is nice and thick with a mild carbonation. Chewy and delicious.
If ever had on tap it's even better. Even had it on nitro a couple times at Naja's but really didn't notice a big difference than just plain co2 dispensed. God bless AleSmith for adding to California's already great line up of amazing beers.
Serving type: on-tap
