Dark brown in color. A nice but mild blend of malt and hops but the flavor profile also had a medicine note that was not so pleasant.

Sorry to say, but the WWII-era “cheesecake” cutie on the label was the best part of this offering.

Pours an ink black body with dark brown edges, foam is short-lived, no lacing. Aromas are smokey and dark chocolate, with lots of roastiness. Flavors are surprising sweet and mocha-like in character. The cold coffee flavors are very pronounced on the mid palate and finish. This is a well made, complex concoction that hides its high abv well and serves as an excellent winter warmer.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department. There are some aromas of roasted malt, a touch of smoke, a little bit of coffee, but not much, some vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate. But all of these aromas are faint, not strong and enticing.

Taste: However, what the beer lacks in strength of aroma, it makes up for in a damn good taste! Tons of roasted malt and brown sugar up front, followed by a touch of smoke, some vanilla, but not a lot of coffee flavor, which is surprising for a beer called espresso stout. I’m not disappointed, but coffee lovers probably will be. Still, it’s a delicious beer!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as silk, as there’s no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 9.0%, there is a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow, this is a very good, almost great stout! I love the massive malt flavors and sweetness and I find the lack of coffee to be really good (I’m not a coffee fan). Like I said earlier, coffee lovers will probably be disappointed in the lack of coffee flavors found in a beer called an espresso stout, but I really, really liked this beer.

App - Pours an almost blackish, dark brown with off white head, minimal effervescence.
Smell – Roasted malts, chocolate, hint of coffee
Taste – Sweet toasted malts up front, dark unsweetened chocolate, hint of coffee, bit of a bitter twang as an endnote and rather clean and sweet finish.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, between 2% and whole milk (a bit thin for an IS), good carbonation as it warms in the mouth.

Overall: This is a great stout, malty and sweet with a hint of coffee flavor and cocoa – IMHO it combines some features I enjoy from a RIS and oatmeal stout and a coffee porter – a delicious Frankenstein’s monster of great qualities. A good winter warmer and easily quaffable – as good on the last sip as the first.

Bitter from coffee. No depth of flavor and taste.
