2.81/5 rDev -19.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75
A : Poured a deep black in color , sordove thin, overcarbonated with a gushing dirty white cap. To much head and head retention is crazy. SOmething is wrong here
S: Roasted grains, some faint vanilla and coffee.
T: Initial taste is some muted vanilla like extract buried under some coffee and chocolate. The taste is really weak. There is an offputting lingering bittering on the end
M: Whie it is medium-full bodied it sure felt thin. Overcarbonated, bubbly, off. The flavors are just muddled and astringent.
O: I was happy to try it but probably won't try it again or seek it out.

on tap at Duckworths (NC)
Pour is dark mahogany, a bit light for the style. This lightness carries over to the mouthfeel (too thin), flavor (a bit light, especially in terms of dark malt), and aroma.(again, a bit light in terms of dark malt). Also rather sweet, falling near a sweet stout on this count, On the positive side, the coffee component is more like fresh beans than old grounds, and is in balance with the other flavors and aromas.

From notes back in February. Tap at Good Bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin layer of off white.
Aroma, a ton of coffee and vanilla.
Taste, yikes, a watery vanilla coffee. And that's it. All right there is a light earthy tobacco/peat and chocolate.
Struggles to get above light bodied, carbonation would be fine if it wasn't so thin. Denis pretty easy, but this is a one and done.
