Poured from a 12oz bottle into a mini pint (~13oz) glass.
Pours nice a black but with some brown coloring when held to the light. A small half finger of foam slowly fades away to a cream lace. Smells deliciously sweet and malty with a slight bit of fruit subtle in the end of the smell.
First sip is a notable flavor of sweet malt that gives way to some citrusy hops. The entire sip is underlined by pleasant coffee bitterness and that truly comes out, intertwined with a light hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Some slight creaminess near the beginning of the drink helps enforce the coffee characteristics. Would take a hint from the bottle and serve this one at a bit of a warmer temperature, as it showcases the coffee flavors more.
Great mouthfeel; nice, bright and airy instead of a sludgy stout consistency.
Great stout and it's way different than their Road Sludge. Different flavor profile makes this one interesting and not just another coffee stout.
