A very nice coffee stout that does not seem to have the higher ratings it deserves. I will review if I every find it again.
Listed on the "1001."

This might be a really nice beer but the bottle is way over carbonated.

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Produced an enormous fluffy tan head that stuck around for quite awhile. Plenty of clumpy lacing too.

(S)- An obvious deep roasted chocolatey coffee aroma that immediately reminds me of espresso. A cafe mocha anybody?

(T)- Not quite as rich as the smell led me to believe, but still some good roasted cocoa and coffee in there. A subtle vanilla sweetness at the end as it warmed.

(M)- The carbonation level is way too high for a stout; it really kills and masks some of the excellent espresso flavors in the body.

(O)- Aside from the carbonation level, this is a really excellent stout with espresso.

Trois Dames 'Espresso Stout' @ 7.2% , served from a 330 ml bottle purchased for $5

A-pour is a dark cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with a small tan head leaving a large spotty lace along the pint glass

S-mild espresso

T-smooth tasting , lingering bittersweet finish

MF-medium carbonation , medium to full bodied , dryness lingers on the palate

Ov-good tasting beer , pricey for small bottle , glad I tried it
