Review #666 for this beer. \m/
Anyway.

Poured into a CW bell tulip of course. Dark brown-black stout color, with a foamy marshmallow white head that receded to a wispy layer, and laced the glass randomly. The aroma was definitely the highlight of this one for me, the coffee flowing out as soon as I uncapped it, lesser notes of caramel malts, toasted bread. Roasty taste, dark malts, smooth coffee, that was neither too overpowering nor too subtle, nicely balanced; a little sensation of herbal hops gave a dry and somewhat tea-like finish. Smooth mouthfeel, easy drinkability, medium mouthfeel that wasn't quite as full as I'd like for the style. Overall a nice coffee beer.

22oz bomber poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Pours near-black with large, foamy tan head.

S: Intense roasted coffee aroma, accompanied by caramel and molasses.

T: Tastes much like coffee smells. Sweet, with a lot of roasted coffee and caramel.

M: Thinner than expected. Incredibly smooth.

O: A great coffee stout! Extremely drinkable, huge amount of coffee flavor. Affordable at $7/bomber.

Served cellar temp in a Tyranena snifter

A - pours an opaque black, foamy mocha head which fades to a thin ring

S - wow, the nose is one of the most intense coffee aromas I've had from a beer. hints of crackery malt linger behind

T - Coffee again dominates, nice and roasty, but not overly so, with dark chocolate chips that follow

M - I'd have to say that this has a bit more body than I'm used to from CW, which is a good thing, as they often seem a bit thin

O - Great coffee stout, quite drinkable, and one heck of a deal (I think it was $6.99 for a bomber?). Glad I grabbed a couple of these.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black but not completely opaque. Nice khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Nice coffee aroma. Creamy milk chocolate. Some deeper roasted malts.

Taste - Coffee is prevalent, but not domineering. Slightly sweet. Chocolate malts. Creamy. The finish loses its creaminess and bitter coffee lingers.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. No coffee acidity. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Very flavorful. Extremely well made stout.
