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."

4.22/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, courtesy of gratefulbeerhead, poured into a tulip.

A - Pours pitch black with about two fingers of puffy brown foam.

S - Coffee absolutely dominates the nose, with lesser aromas of roast barley, chocolate, and licorice.

T - Starts off with far too much carbonation, obscuring the taste. After swirling a few times and letting the beer stand, I get plenty of sweet coffee flavor with hints of chocolate, licorice, and hazelnut. Hop flavor is minimal, save a muted earthiness. Bitterness is a bit high, though I'm sure much is from the coffee.

M - Full body, rich and silky.

D - Once the extra carbonation is knocked out, this is a solid beer. Good coffee flavor - not as intense as Peche Mortel or Bell's Java Stout, but well done. Definitely worth a try.
