3.48/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a midnight brown color with ruby highlights; a carpet of foam lays on top of the liquid and leaves a few strands of lace behind

Smell: While there is coffee detectable in the aroma, there is also a fruity character that blends with the roasted tones

Taste: Fruit and roast forward, with the roasty flavors building into the middle; after the swallow, the espresso finally makes an appearance and holds its own, though the aftertaste has a lot of fruit in it, as well

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderare carbonation

Overall: The body is too light and there isn't as much coffee flavor as I would prefer for the style

3.8/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- very very dark brown, opaque almost black, barely a head, but a thin creamy one

S - espresso/coffee, dark chocolate, light smoke and roast

T - same as smell, coffee is the main taste, its pretty smokey with roasted malt, earthy, some bitterness in the after taste

M - smooth, creamy, medium carbonation, medium-full bodied

O - This is a good stout. Nice earthy roasted malt with a strong coffee taste but not unwelcoming. The alcohol is masked by the other flavors. Smells fantastic.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 12/5/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, and roasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice coffee stout. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.26/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle into a tulip. From the bottle the smell is all malt and coffee, poured into the glass thin head dissipates quickly and is near black with dark brown around the thinner base of the glass. Very mild hop smell while in the glass along with more malt and more coffee. Very thin mouthfeel with a nice taste that lingers on the tongue but doesn't coat it. It's a decent coffee stout that hides the ABV well, but I probably won't pick it up again. Also I wasn't expecting it to be a twist off and almost cracked the bottle with an opener.

Pours dark with minimal head. Nose is mild coffee. Flavor profile is espresso express! Great coffee character with little to note as a detractor. I've got nothing negative to say. Very smooth feel and very easy to drink. A great coffee beer. Glad I found this one.

3.76/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black with a small tan head that leaves behind some lacing.

S: Coffee. A touch of roasted barley malt and dark fruits. But mostly coffee.

T: First impression is the coffee. But after the palate adjusts to that, I'm also getting a nice roasty foundation underneath, with some fruitiness - dark fruits and dried fruits - and some vanilla, followed up with a bit of char and roast bitterness at the finish. I've had far better coffee stouts, but this isn't bad at all.

M: A bit thin/underweighted in feel. Carbonation is modest.

O: OK. Nothing earth-shattering, but better than I expected for some reason.
