3.08/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A-Pours quite black. Barely any light penetration. Dark tan head forms and retains. Head is about an inch high and leaves good lacing.

S-Lighter aroma of coffee and cocoa. Too light to be very interesting. Not gonna earn high marks here. Very light for a stout.

T-Something about the taste that just doesn't hit the tongue right. Maybe its the odd twang in the taste. Maybe its the awkwardly noticeable alcohol. Either way this isn't doing it for me. There is chocolate and coffee. There's also a bit of hop bitterness. But altogether, something is amiss here.

M-Massaging carbonation. Medium body with an adequate mouthfeel. A tad bitter.

O/D-Not a big fan. The local Ipswich Oatmeal Stout blows this one away. Simply put: I am not a big fan of this. And I really like the style too.

4.03/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pitch black with a dark, rich, espresso head. Very nice lacing.

S - Roasty notes, with fairly strong coffee and espresso in the nose. Smells like freshly ground coffee.

T - Roasty in the front with a good strong coffee taste in the middle. Some chocolate hints as well. Underlying earthy hoppiness was a nice balance.

MF - Smooth and rich in the stout style. Good carbonation. Nice. Still a sipper, however 7.5% is rather well-hid.

O - A great looking stout with ample coffee roastiness. Would certainly buy again. One thing I noticed is this didn't seem like quite 60 IBUs though.

P: 12 fl oz bottle in to a globe glass

A: SRM is dark brown/black. Head is tan, 1 in., puffy, dissipates to 1 cm. Light/medium carbonation. Medium/heavy lacing.

S: A blend of floral hops and coffee.

T: Coffee is initial palate, quickly followed by etheral yet potent influx of hops, then maltiness. Oats come through along with the hop/malt combo on secondary palate. Aftertaste is hoppy and oats/malt are present.

M: Medium body stout. So much going on, but it all works fantastically. Coffee starts the pallet in one direction. Hops and malt make it do a 180. Oatiness gives a thicker mf on aftertaste.

O: Wow. My mouth is so happy. Coffee, hops, oats. Total beergasam. We know the Man upstairs likes beer b/c Troegs made it through the recent floods, and this is one of the reasons why they made it. So many flavors, so perfectly well balanced. Again, I love coffee beers, so this rDev will be skewed towards the uptick. Big ups 2 Troegs!

3.75/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a deep black, fingers worth of khaki head. Looks a little thin, Carbonation just right.

Smell - For being called a coffee stout i am not getting much. This is a very mild aroma. Oatmeal and dark grains shine through.

Taste - The coffee is straightforward but pretty mellow. You get a lot of oatmeal stout qualities in this one that are wrapped around some subtle coffee and chocolate flavors. Not bad

Mouthfeel - A little thin and just slightly over carbonated for my likes

Overall - A moderately good, perfectly acceptable coffee stout. I would expect better from troegs honestly. Not great, not bad.
