3.9/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Gave this a really vigorous pour which resulted in a very thin light tan head. This is one of the blackest, most opaque beers under 6% ABV that I've ever seen.

Aroma: Lots of chocolate and coffee and all around maltiness. Pleasant and not overbearing.

Taste: Sort of a light Sweet/Milk Stout flavor at first but then the coffee dominates your palate. Really rich taste of bitter black coffee in the finish. At 5.6% ABV, it is a little light on flavor in the middle but the aftertaste is bigger than most Imperial Stouts. That coffee bitterness only gets more intense over time. An interesting experience but not quite unique.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. I'd say average drinkability because the bitter coffee can become cloying. Surprisingly there was an average amount of carbonation even with the vigorous pour that produced no head.

Final Thoughts: Be ready for a lot of coffee flavor and just enough malt to back it up. It's a little one-dimentional, but that seems to be true of most American Stouts. Would I drink it again? Probably not, there are too many other stouts I have yet to try before cycling back to this one.

On nitro-tap at Bernie's in Waukesha, WI. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is rich with coffee. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. Robust flavors but not too heavy. Has a smooth, maltly flavor that is well-balanced. Nice find on nitro.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Great beer, not necessarily an easy beer but definitely not pretentious. Great nose of roasted grains and black coffee. A bit more carbonation than expected but it worked. This is a great choice for the stout fan or coffee lover. Not a quaffer but not a one pint princes. Overall better than average for the style, an overall good choice.

Serving type: on-tap
