look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

this beer pours a very dark brown almost black with a tan 2 finger head that is oh so creamy.

The smell is of bitter chocolate and vanilla i dont get a lot of coffee in the nose.

The taste is more bitter chocolate and vanilla but it has a subtle coffee finish that is nice.

The mouthfeel is very smooth, overall a nice beer.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the coffee aroma was very apparent. Giving only a slight head, the appearance was black with slight hints of amber amid the blackness. The coffee aroma was fresh and not overly bitter. Though I would not describe the aroma as sweet, it was certainly pleasant. Initial taste was a sweet malt flavor coupled with the bitterness of coffee. This lends itself to a very balanced flavor. If the sweetness peaked through a little more, this could potentially be an elite beer. The thickness of the stout coats the tongue nicely making the favor endure. The coating nature of the beer makes the bitter coffee and sweet malty flavors last long into the aftertaste. This is a well balanced coffee stout with a high level of drinkability.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz poured to a pint glass.

L- Chalky dark brown and cloudy. Light head with minimal lace. Coffee / cola esque in its appearance.

A- Huge coffee aroma, especially the fruitier, cherry smells of coffee. Roasted malts, and big toffee. Some milk chocolates and chocolate syrup notes.

T- Rich, syrupy chocolates and coffee dominate the flavor. Reminiscent of coffee ice cream. Sweet, with some burnt flavors of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and creme brulee. Burnt marshmallows in there as well.

Texture is smooth, with hints of toffee and caramel. Actually a detectable hop bitterness, but buried behind the malts. The hops are slight grassy in flavor. Toffee is more dominant than the coffee flavors.

MF- Milky and creamy, like an iced latte with the texture of a root beer float due to the higher carbonation. Aftertaste heats the throat and middle of the tongue. Almost a herby or sprucey mouthfeel at times, likely coming from the bitterness of the coffee and hops.

O- Creamier and sweeter than I remember from previous years. Not nearly as bold of a coffee aroma or flavor, and really the toffee notes dominated my palate. Still tasty and easy to drink. A bit one dimensional at times. Alcohol is hidden well. Despite it being different from my memory, I still miss this one….

had on tap at CW brewery (from notes)

appearance: dark and thick, just like i like my stouts. pours a chocolate brown thin head

aroma: it smells like a coffee house with the some sweet malty chocolates mixed in

palate: nice full bodied stout. sits a bit like milk in the mouth, nice a creamy and full. gives you a warm feeling

taste: the most coffee flavor I've ever had (maybe tied with surly's coffee bender on-tap). deliciously rich coffee bean flavor with sweet chocolate tied in. i love it the beer tastes like it smells!

overall: one of the absolute best beers in wisconsin hands down. whoever reviewed this beer one below me either left his bottle in the sun for a week or was on a lot of drugs when he reviewed it. Its a shame when someone does that too since it really brings down the overall score of this beer. its an absolute delight drinking this beer, and i love finding it in bottles when i can. on tap it was even better. can someone say, growler?
