3.9/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 9 November 2010. Hoping it's held up well. Enjoyed 3 December 2011, reviewed from notes.

Pours very dark brown, essentially black, with one finger of brownish tan head. Decent retention, not much lacing.

Smells really good. A lovely balance of slightly bitter coffee and dark roasted malts. Has a distinct hazelnut smell as well. Smooth and balanced.

Taste is a tad rougher than the smell, but still quite good. Coffee is a little weaker, bitterness from the dark roast is more present. I'd like a bit more oomph to the flavor.

Mouthfeel: kinda light for a stout, with medium-low carbonation. Feels watery and slick, not as full and rich as I want it to be.

This is a nice coffee stout. It's definitely on the thin side, both in feel and in flavor. But it's good all around, and definitely worth drinking.

Bottle was an extra in a trade. Thanks, served in a glass of some sort.

Beer is dark brown almost black with a thin head of small bubbles, tan, no lacing, low retention low carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, mildly roasty, a mild coffee-ness to it, decent.

Beer is thin and light on the coffee, it is not very sweet, not very bitter, not very much of anything, this is a plain stout in my opinion. Nothing else. moving on.
