look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Looks like it should for a double stout

S: Best part of this beer is the smell, almost has a barrel aged character to it

T: My bottle was dated May 2013 so that must be why this beer isn't very good. I taste very little coffee and a lot of fake chocolate when drinking this beer

M: Decent, a little flat

O: I may just be tasting an almost year old batch but this beer was not good at all. I would have thought a 9% stout would hold up somewhat well over a year but that doesn't seem to be the case with this beer. I was very excited by the smell because it smelled a bit of bourbon but the fake chocolate taste was a huge let down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass. Bottled June 19th 2013.

Classic dark walnut brown body, nearly black. Head barely forms and is very very light for a stout, nearly light tan in color. Leaves a bit of a filmy top and a thin pencil sized collar.

Nose is a good amount of coffee and vanilla like accents. Very light roasting smelling for a double, but with a good sweetness mixing with the roasty malts. Light but solid.

Palate comes with a very wet body. Extremely thin and nearly lifeless mouthfeel. Lots of roast specifically coffee bitterness on this, and very astringent and watery. Mid palate does fill with coffee and roast, but it's not coming with a malt depth to hold up. Very astringent aftertaste. Warmth lets the cola flavors come out with some cola nut sweetneess and letting the bitterness subside.

It's a bit disappointing and the biggest problem is the mouthfeel as the flavors don't really hold up, and it's un-pleasurably bitter unfortunately. Gets a bit better as it warms.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Back label says Bottling Date: 04/09/14.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before dissolving down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thin solid ring behind.

S- Immediate shot of booze plus some brown sugar sweetness. Trying to find coffee and dark roast but it's hard to see through the heavy alcohol fume.

T- Taste is much of the same with an overbearing sweetness and booze burn. Mild coffee, soft vanilla and some unappealing dark roast. Coffee starts to come out more as it warms but it's too little, too late.

M- Sharp from the booze and not as viscous as it should be. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Wow, I don't know what they were going for here, but this is a pretty lame excuse for a coffee stout. Way too boozy to be enjoyable and the coffee presence is severely lacking.
