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.

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

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.

Poured almost pitch black with a fine tan head that quickly receded. The aroma is dark malt and coffee. The flavor was very bland other than the coffee. Nice thick feel but overall disappointed with this one especially considering the price point.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle and got a huge sudsy, rocky head that really slowed down my pour. That carbonation stayed around in the beer and affected the mouthfeel in my opinion. It didn't end up being as creamy as I would have expected from a 7.5 ABV oatmeal stout. Smell was nice espresso but somewhat restrained. Taste was soft bakers chocolate and coffee. Decent beer but not stellar.

L: Was pretty dark brown, closing in on a blackish tone. There was absolutely no head on this, which was a little disappointing.

S: Slight Espresso and some earthy notes

T: Coffee and espresso notes, some dark chocolate , a slight taste of dirt and a little flat.

F: Medium body, not too thin. Very low in carbonation.

O: Its an alright beer, nothing special to be honest. But my bottle may be a little older, so I would like to do another review with t a fresher bottle.
