look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Bottled 11/16/2011.
A: Deep, dark brown with mahogany hues around the edges of the glass when held up to light. Cocoa head that dissipates to a thin layer but sticks around and leaves nice lacing.
S: Espresso roast coffee beans dominate the nose, with hints of roasted barley and grassy hops. Very robust coffee aroma.
T: Espresso, plum and cherry notes, caramel, roasted barley, grassy hops.
M: Light-bodied stout that is a bit watery throughout. Quite a bit of carbonation on the back end leaves a tang on the tongue. Too watery for a stout in my opinion.
O: A solid coffee stout. A poor mouthfeel holds this one back from being something more.

Pours a dark cola brown color with a small tight khaki colored head. The retention was quick and settled into a light ring.
The aroma is not particuliarly strong but does have a nice coffee scent. Nice cold coffee and coffee grounds aroma, good roast. The aroma is a nice earthy/woody scent.
Freshly ground coffee in the taste. Excellent flavor and not overly bitter. Subtle wood notes with a peaty type of flavor. The malt base is quite light and brings a tea like flavor, perhaps a note of lemon. A hint of caramel as well.
The feel is light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. Starts off sweet on the palate but has enough of a roasted bitter offset to balance. Perhaps a touch stick in the finish.
Very good coffee flavor; I enjoyed that very much. However, the stout base is lacking and more resembles a brown ale. Quite light for the style.
