look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle into a FW tulip. 7/10/13 bottling date.

Pours an opaque black with a half inch beige head. Malty aroma, but i dont pick up any chocolate or coffee notes. A bit weak. Taste though is very smooth and delicious. Pretty big beer for 7.5% ABV, bordering on syrupy but that isnt a bad thing. Coffee is faint but definitely there. I get some chocolately malts as well. Easy drinking too. Medium bodied, mild carbonation.

Overall a very enjoyable coffee stout that I'd drink regularly.

a: pours dark black, with some dark purple/ruby red light at the bottom of the glass. large 3 finger tan head - pretty smooth

s: dark sweet roasted malts, somethign grassy/grainy, dark baking chocolate, smooth coffee, something almost oaky and creamy

t: milk chocolate and coffee beans up front, dark sweet fruit, cream, toasted malts, slight sweet berry flavor. all the flavors in this are incredibly smooth. only a hint of bitterness from the coffee beans

m: fuller side of medium. it had a large head, but doesn't feel overly carbonated

o: kind of surprised - after trying this i think it should be rated higher than it is. it IS true that the coffee flavors could be a bit more pronounced, but its a real nice combination of roasty and sweet. drinks smooth and warms you nicely. thumbs up
