4/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Coffee black with a tan head. Very nice lacing. Great look.

Floral and piney aromas from fresh hops and sturdy black coffee. Sweet, but with bright complementing hops and roast bitterness. Hints of raisin and licorice. Almost smells like a coffee black IPA.

Very hoppy and decently bitter. Robust malts and black coffee balance out wily floral hops. Backdrop stout-y flavors release flavors of cocoa nibs and burnt cereal. Finishes with citrus notes and lingering hoppiness. Such bright contrasting flavors.

Feels alright. Feels bright in the mouth. Loose and low carbonation. Medium to medium-light body. Not difficult to gulp.

I love the brash hoppiness versus the sweeter coffee notes. An experiment gone right. Excellently different. Unique and easy to revisit.

3.86/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Near black, nice frothy head after the pour. Leaves spotty lacing around my stout glass.
S: Bit of chocolate, coffee, sweetness.
T: Sweetness up front, then balanced by coffee at the end. A little bit of chocolate notes throughout.
M: Slightly on the thick side. Love how the bitterness of the coffee lingers on the back of the tongue.
O: Pretty pleasant beer, although I would probably only have one in a session. Maybe slightly above middle of the road for this beer in its category.
