Very good! Best coffee beer that I'm aware of in the Midwest region. Just as good by the 6 pack bottle as it is by the jug from the brewery. Coffee connoisseurs this is the coffee beer for you!

Good beer definitely get that iced coffee taste with it. Wouldn't complain if it was a little thicker. Good nose chocolate and coffee

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark brown. Finger width of head.

S: Heavy notes of coffee with a little oatmeal stout picked up.

T: A lot of coffee. Barely any booze taste. If I didnt know any better I am drinking a chilled coffee with a hint of oatmeal.

M: Medium carbonation and very light as far as stouts go

O: Very good beer. I dont delve much into stouts, especially coffee stouts, but I must say this is the absolute best coffee stout I have had to date. I have heard their Java Stout is better, but I will reserve judgement until I try it at a later date.

Pours a nice light brown to black with a quickly dissipating head.

Smells of oatmeal, chocolate, and roasted malt are most prevalent.

Flavors of the oatmeal and chocolate are perfectly balanced with a roasted malt/nutty back bone.

Mouthfeel is where this one lost a couple of points, it was a bit thin for my taste in stouts.

Overall an excellent oatmeal stout and it's always great to support local!
