Beer sent by laymansbeerfan, I love me some coffee stout. 12oz bottle states that it was brewed in October, served in a pub nonic.
A: Dark brown with transparent blood red hues, two solid fingers of creamy light tan head had decent retention and leaves some solid lacing.
S: Coffee and chocolate dominate, lighter roast characters, toasted grains, bits of sweetness, faint nuttiness and earthiness.
T: More of the same as the nose, coffee and definite dark malt, breadiness, toasted grains and nuts, some earthy hops maybe, faint caramel and mocha, roast on the finish.
MF: Dry finish, medium body, aftertaste is coffee & coffee grounds.
O: Surprised by how much breadiness there was in this beer. Its a decent coffee stout but not my favorite. Don't know how the age affected this one.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head that recedes into a wisp. Very light lacing.
Smells of coffee some roasted malt and a touch of smoke.
Tastes like coffee as well. Not a ton of other flavors here. There is some good roasty malt and a touch of smoke, but it lacks body and I don't get much beyond the slightly astringent coffee.
Too light for my liking for a stout. If this were creamier, it could be something great.
I love coffee stouts and there's certainly nothing wrong with this one, but it's kind of one note and lacks body to really put it over the edge. I'd rather go for an FBS when I'm in the mood for coffee.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black. There is a half finger of light tan head that goes away quickly.
Smell: Sweet and malty up front with some dark fruit as well. There is a roasted malt/coffee bitterness. The coffee smell is slightly burnt.
Taste: The coffee stands out a lot more here. There is a bitterness from the coffee and the roast up front. In the background there is a sweetness along with some nutty and creamy notes.
Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium with a lot of carbonation. The finish is dry and maybe slightly chalky.
Overall: A very nice coffee stout. Don't like this one quite as much as the Terrapin, but still good.
