4.15/5 rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Had on-tap at the brewpub.
Pours completely black with a thin brown head that quickly recedes into a wispy layer of bubbles on top, leaving surprisingly thick lacing.
Smells of coffee, then more coffee, then roasted malts.
Tastes similar to how it smells, although there's a bit more balance. Coffee flavors dominate, but give way surprisingly easily to roasted malt flavors. There's also a very slight hint of chocolate that pops in right before the bitter ending.
Mouthfeel is good. It's got a very nice thickness with carbonation that's just enough to bring out the flavors. This goes down very smoothly.
Drinkability is good. This is more drinkable than most other coffee beers because it's so thick and dark - on par with Peche Mortel but not as refined.
Overall this was an impressive beer. I would like to try the cask version at some point as it seems I liked the draught version better. Worth a shot if it's on in the brewpub.

Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting.
Pours jet black with a very short-lived bubbly tan head.
The aroma is dominated by the espresso, roasted almost to the point of burnt. The underlying dark malts are there to balance things out.
The taste follows the aroma with the espresso up front on top of the chocolate and dark malts. The finish is exceedingly dry and slightly burnt with the espresso lingering in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is pretty thin with little carbonation and lots of espresso bitterness.
I'm a big fan of coffee stouts and I enjoyed this one though it was a bit too much of the burnt side for my liking.

3.9/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a black body with a very, very miniscule tan head.
Smell: Used espresso grinds with lesser notes of unsweetened chocolate and dark malts.
Taste: Dark maltiness with a semi-sweet chocolate flavor. The coffee flavor is prounced and distinct, but kept in check, none of those pesky acrid or exceedingly burnt flavors. Medium earthy bitterness. More maltiness and coffee on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation.
Drinkability: Not bad at all!
