Notes/Commercial Description:
"A brew uniquely different from most coffee stouts, we cram Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans into every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant and create a flavor robust with big malt characters fused with cream and coffee. The perfect morning night capper."

4.25/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Awesome bottle from Adam (thanks man!) poured into my Snake River pint glass.

A: Black pour with a tiny dark brown head; some lacing.

S: Straight-up coffee. Coffee grounds, fresh coffee; potent, and kinda in-your-face. Dark, espresso coffee. Light notes of acrid char.

T: This is a different animal; much more diversity here. Bigger body than I expected as well, but we'll get to that...sweeter notes, sugary even; dark caramel, brown sugar, milky lactose, and even some mocha. Still plenty of coffee, but now blended beautifully with a gorgeous milk stout that has some heft.

MF: Not quite full but a creamy medium body...soft, velvety mouthfeel.

O: Impressed with the taste and feel on this one; coffee cream stout for sure! Lactose sugars come through brilliantly, cutting the acrid bitter coffee down to size and blending into a wonderful cold coffee concoction.

Fun one to try, would love to have it again. Thanks Adam!
