4.13/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Opaque colour with reduced head and carbonation. Smell of coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is driven again by the coffee, chocolate and burnt sugar (maybe some liquor), with a relatively sweet feel. A good beer, but a bit too sweet and lacking a lasting aftertaste.

Black color with mocha head. Aroma is coffee forward, malty and chocolatey with light liquor notes. Taste follows with dark chocolate, deep malt flavor, roasted notes with a good amount of bitterness and lingering coffee on the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Nice coffee stout, well balanced and tasty.

Pours jet black with some chocolate colored foam.

Smell is very coffee forward with some hints of sump, some chocolate and a little bit of oatmeal.

Taste is again very much about the coffee, with hints in tha background of dark chocolate, cookie dough and coconut.

Mouthfeel is medium to full, thick and oily. Well caabonated.

Overall, a very nice coffee stout, does what it says on the box.
