look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Very dark, near black. Off white head and lacing that provides a nice contrast to the beer.

Strange smell. Almost vegetal like celery. Espresso becomes apparent as it warms.

Tastes like an iced latte. Sweetness comes out more as it warms. I actually prefer this stout colder.

Mouthfeel is a little light for a stout, but not bad.

Good coffee stout, but not great.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Olive black in the vessel with a huge multi-finger mocha head that was spongy textured and moderately lasting. Large coverage of lace on the glass with minor windows of visibility.

S: Aroma of powdered milk, dry chocolate, chalky, with some dry grains of moderate strength. Wish the aroma could of been more fresh and bigger. Semi-sweet notes of creamer coffee but not much in the way of espresso.

T: Flavor was chalky, creamer laced dry chocolate, pretty big flavorwise. Sweet, powdery milk chocolate and cocoa with some big mention of fresh, wet espresso grounds mid-palate that finishes dry.

M: Malty mouthful, that turned frothy with creamer like texture and edgy carbonation and dry chocolate leave.

O: Overall the espresso nature starts to pick up with some rich, deep coffee grounds balanced by some minor sweet milk chocoalte notes. Not as sweet per style as many, but the extra rich espresso nature picks up for some of the slack making this somewhat interesting.

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

Appearance: Pours out like a cup of espresso though a modest head replaces the brownish film; not much retention or lacing, however

Smell: Coffee with a hint of a burnt character

Taste: Coffee flavor up front, in the middle and in the finish; just a hint of lactose in the aftertaste; oddly fruity and sweet, almost as if it were a coffee soda

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Perhaps a year in the bottle did not serve this well but the beer is not particularly impressive - the body doesn't hold up and the flavors seem a bit underattenuated
