look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Quite dark with a small khaki head. Impressive color for such a relatively light stout. Medium khaki collar.

Smell - Coffee in the greatest proportion. Chocolate and roasted malts behind it. Simple, but a perfect amount of coffee.

Taste - Coffee up front, never overwhelms the other flavors. Chocolate and roast in equal quantities. Bitter coffee wells up in the end but subdues itself slightly before the finish.

Mouthfeel - It's kinda thin. I'd like something just a bit chewier, but it does make it drinkable as hell. Medium carbonation.

Overall - A sip of this does it no justice. A whole glass and you'll want more and more. The comparison to Founders Breakfast Stout is close, but this lacks a bit of the depth that FBS's malt flavor has.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with no head nor lacing. The smell had a huge amount of dark bitter coffee beans and as it warmed there was a nice sweet balance of cocoa to broaden the aroma. The taste was mainly bitter and lead to a decent dry sweet balance to the cocoa. A dry sweet to bitter coffee/cocoa aftertaste leads to a dry coffee bean finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitter dry coffee sticks to my tongue. Overall, I say this was an excellent American Stout that I would have again.

A: Nice and dark with a hint of brown in the head

S: Perfect blend of coffee in the stout, it smells like coffee but what did you expect?

T: Just like the smell the coffee is pronounced but not overpowering

M: As good as a stout should be

O: This is really well done and actually my new favorite coffee stout, it beats Bell's Java Stout by a few points in my book, I just wish I could get this in my area!

Taste is of deep coffee grounds, roasted malt, and slight bitter hops. Super roasty, this is a coffee beer for coffee lovers. One to try, but for me I have had more balanced beers in the style.

12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown, opaque in the glass, with a decent head that leaves a nice coat of lacing on the glass.
Fairly full and creamy smooth body with light+ soft carbonation.
Well chosen level of coffee allows the rich dark roasted malts to contribute nearly as much flavor.
Excellent sweet-bitter balance.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic. Lots of coffee and roasted malt. Some subtle lactose and caramel.

Taste: Again, lots of coffee up front, including some subtle coffee bitterness, followed by lots of roasted malt, some brown sugar-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, with a touch of carbonation. With an ABV of 6.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Not bad. Nice flavors of malt and coffee with some good sweetness, but just a tad too much of the coffee bitterness for me to really, really like it.
