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: 3.5 | 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
