3.83/5 rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with very slight ruby highlights. About 1.5" of tan head forms, which has good retention and okay lacing.
Smell: Smells of dark malts, lots of coffee, maybe a hint of both bitter and sweet chocolate.
Taste: Mirrors smell. Some really nice coffee character is present, though it turns a bit acrid on the finish. Bitter and sweet chocolate is present as well, and minimal hop character.
Mouthfeel/Overall: The beer is medium bodied, very smooth and creamy. Overall, I was impressed with this coffee stout. Nice flavors in this.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
