look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours pretty darn black no real light getting through this one with a nice thumb sized coco colored head that falls to ringed scum.

Aroma is nice big roasted malts loads of chocolate, coffee is lighter then I would think for coffee stout but its in there. Nice and sweet some caramel and touches of liquid smoke mingled with the coffee and chocolate.

Taste is roasted malts ok here is where the coffee is more so in the taste then the chocolate that my nose seemed to think was dominating. Finish is lingering coffee lightly dry some touches of coco powder, peat notes and hops. Not bad but to me the nose is better.

Mouthfeel is only medium maybe affected by the kind of peppy carbonation, looked thicker when pouring into my glass anyway.

Overall would say a descent beer, but for the price I would pass as many good stouts can be had for a third of the price.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 16.9 oz bottle into snifter.

Look: poured her black with a thin khaki head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: dark roasted coffee up front, followed by chocolate notes, toasted malt, and caramel. There is also a thin lingering essence of smoke which is a nice touch.

Taste: follows almost directly with the smell; notes of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and a slight touch of dates or vanilla for sweetness.

Feel: thick syrupy feel, but slightly over carbonated for my taste in coffee stouts.

Overall: solid breakfast stout; great smell and tastes just a little too much carbonation. I could still drink it for breakfast, lunch or dinner though!

Reminiscent of good black coffee and espresso. Slighly sour, but pleasant. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. I like that it diverges from the traditional coffee stout.

Poured from a 12 oz can,into a Funky Buddha snifter.Canned on 11/18/16.

Thick frothy dark khaki colored head with moderate retention and sticky lacing.Jet black colored body with no light showing through the glass.Light to medium carbonation.

The palate follows the nose with dark roasted coffee,earthy and toasted malts,and dark chocolate up front and in the middle,with some faint citrus and floral hops on the back end to balance it out.p

On the nose I get dark roasted coffee,dark chocolate,earthy and toasted malts,toffee,and caramel notes.Some floral and citrus hop notes balancing as well.

The mouth feel is medium heavy with a sticky texture and moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue.

This is a very nice stout.Not my favorite version of the style but a good contender.I would drink this again,and recommend.
