Strong coffee stout. Smell is subtle and taste is very strong coffee. Great complexity. Nothing to drink all night, but a great flavor

Poured into a snifter from a bottle. Pours pitch black with a small brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smells of coffee, right from the pour. Tastes of coffee with a very slight dark grain, but the coffee dominates. Beer is medium bodied, but easily drinkable, nice carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

12 oz. bottle with a November 2015 notching on the label.

Poured a dark brown to black with a thin amount of head the dissipated quickly to a thin ring around the edges. Some cola brown colors around the edges when held up to the light.

Very light aromas of coffee, like a strong brewed coffee that has been allowed to sit for a couple of hours and is now cold and slightly stale. Not picking up on much else other than a minimal amount of roast.

First sip has a mellowed coffee taste and roastiness with a nice hop bitterness. Not as much coffee flavor as I was expecting.

Medium mouth feel, lingering tongue coating bitterness.

Overall, this doesn't have as much coffee flavor or intensity as I would have liked, more of a regular stout, pretty average and easy to drink stout. It didn't impress me as a coffee stout; but it was an easy drinker.

Bottle Oct, 2015:
Pours close to black with a bunch of fizzing head, which fades to a ring. Adding more to the glass bring back a rush of head. Clear brunette color visible at edges.

Nose isn't too strong, but the coffee notes are there atop a chocolate malt base.

Taste is bold roast notes, and more bitter overall than expected from the nose. Coffee is integrated completely with the malts such that, to me, it could easily be just a part of the malt bill. Weak coffee and dry woody bitterness in the end.

A decent stout as a stout. Coffee not overly recognizable versus other roast notes, so as a coffee beer, it could use a little more.
