look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Enjoyed in a pint glass
A: pours a completely black color with a finger of finely bubbled mocha brown colored head which dissipates rapidly and leaves absolutely zero lacing
S: nice deeply roasted coffee malts pretty much throughout with just the slightest sweet note on the tail end
T: begins with a smokey coffee note which gives way to a nice gentle sweetness which backs off rapidly the allow the coffee malts to linger on the palate comfortably long afterwards. at the very end of the sip, just before the liquid slides off the palate there is the slightest hint of alcohol but you really need to be careful to even perceive it
M: medium carbonation up front gives way to a nice silky character, leaves the mouth with a nice thin coating
O: i actually really enjoy this quite a bit more than i enjoyed the original mothers milk, there is a nice complexity here and depth but i must say that the coffee malts pretty much take center stage in both the scent and the taste, nicely drinkable and quite tastey, always happy to support an NY brewery

Poured into an english pint. Pours black with a finger length tan head that dissipates slowly into a cap. I could smell coffee the second I opened the bottle, which leads to roasty coffee just dominating the nose. Dark chocolate is detected though as well. Taste opens up a bit more sweetness to it up front, but the coffee flavors are very strong after that. Coffee flavors also linger for a short while. Drinks very easy for 8%.
Overall: Very good stout, but the coffee was a bit too much to separate itself into the elite category.
