A: A light tan head, fine bubbles, moderate retention. The beer is a dark brown - almost black with a slight haze. No lacing, just a constant ring of foam around the edge of the tulip glass.
S: Moderate cold coffee aroma, mild fruity esters, earthy hop aroma. There is a faint chocolate and roasty character as it warms up.
T: Mild bitterness with earthy, herbal flavors coming through. Coffee flavor is mild and the is somewhat over powered by the malty sweetness. I'm flavors of toast, melenoidins, mild caramel, milk chocolate and raisins. The beer comes off very english to my pallet.
M: mild-moderate carbonation with a medium body. No astringency or alcohol warming. A somewhat chalky feel is left on the tongue after a few sips when warmed up.
O: An English oriented stout (almost porter like) with a mild coffee aroma and flavor that would be something that could be drank quantity. I expected this coffee stout to be bigger and more chocolate/roast forward – this isn't that. Not really my thing, but I could see this going over well with someone that isn't typically a stout fan.
