3.26/5 rDev -14.4%
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.

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.

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.

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.
