3.8/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Black as can get with no light coming through. A one finger frothy tan head

Smell: chocolate, dark fruit, slight coffee

Taste: Sweet milk chocolate upfront with slight coffee throughout. Not quite as much depth in malts as I had hoped, and a bit too sweet for my liking.

Mouthfeel: Quite light for a stout; Moderate bitterness

Overall: Although enjoyable, I don't think its a good representation of a coffee stout. Not enough coffee or roasted malt flavor. Maybe a tad too sweet for me as well, and the aftertaste isn't that great as it's bitter for the style. With better options available, I probably won't be returning to this any time soon.

3.68/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Black colored brew with a khaki head that is about 1 finger. The head is fluffy with small bubbles. Head pulls back slowly leaving lacing.

S: Lots of milk chocolate and coffee.

T: Coffee and malt flavors hit early with the a nice coffee aftertaste.

M: Slightly waterier than I expected. Also higher carbonation than I anticipated. Not its strongest characteristic.

O: Decent coffee stout. I could drink more but I have several others that I like better. This is okay across the board but doesn't stand out in any area.
