3.6/5 rDev -10.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Got this on sale for $1.50 at my local beverage shop so i figured i'd give it a whirl.
No date on bottle, poured into pint glass.
A: very dark brown, almost black. Thick, bubbly, tan head disipates in about 30 seconds. Leaves heavy lacing that quickly sinks back down the glass.
S: strong coffee, if anyone remembers pepsi kona, it smells just like it. A bit of chocolate at the end.
T: black coffee and chocolate, cant sense much else. After eating a chocolate chip cookie the coffee is much more pronounced (duh).
M: milky texture, mouthfeel is thick, feels like i just took a big gulp of black coffee. For me this is not pleasant.
O: First off, I'm a bit biased as I'm not the type to enjoy coffee/breakfast stouts. I can usually drink half a bottle before giving up. Also it is not exactly the time of year to be drinking such a heavy beer. If I were to ever be in the mood to pick up such a beer i would sooner choose founders dcbs or javahead. But at $1.50 i cant really complain.

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.
