3.1/5  rDev -7.7%

Serving Style : 12 oz glass bottle from The World Market

Appearance : n/a

Smell (3.5) : Roasted bitter coffee beans, hint of cocoa, mocha, some sour malts.

Taste (3) : Smooth and much like iced coffee. Cocoa and malts first, a little grain, and then bitter roasted beans at the end, like chewing a coffee bean. For the finish, roasted caramel coffee settles on the palette leaving a good aftertaste. Everything is good except for the "coffee bean chewed up" taste at the tail end.

Mouthfeel (3) - A little creamy. But overall watery, iced coffee-like. Just a hint of prickly carbonation. Finishes mildly dry. Again like a coffee bean. Not great, just...okay.

Overall (3.1) - Not a beer I'd buy again but it was an interesting tryout. I get an image of sitting by a fire on a cold winters' night drinking this beer with family and friends. But of course there's winter lagers for that.

2.9/5  rDev -13.7%

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Appears a dark brown, but not quite black, color with a small tan head, that dissipates quickly, leaving a nice ring around the glass, and touches of lacing. The pour was a much lighter color than expected here.

The nose is very weak, with the roasted malts taking the lead. It's tough to get anything else here, and the coffee is non-existent. The taste is pretty sharp for a stout; definitely not the smooth roasted malt profile you're looking for. There's definitely bitterness from those roasted malts, which tells me it just needs to be handled a bit differently. Again, the coffee is absent, which is disappointing. There's just not a lot going on here...

The mouthfeel is quite thin for a stout, with active carbonation playing on the palate. Overall, this is a very disappointing brew. The lack of coffee presence, and the lack of complexities in the stout as a whole make it something not really worth drinking.
