A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that left a wide collar consisting of medium-sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of coffee beans are present in the nose.
T: The taste has moderate flavors of cold brew coffee along with underlying hints of dark and roasted malts from the stout. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems light in body for a stout and has a mouthfeel that is more resemblant of a porter, but for this reason is very easy to drink.

500 mL bottle dated 10/23/18. Wasn't refrigerated until I bought it, so hopefully it held up well. Poured into Kane chalice.

L: 2F light tan head with good retention, leaving some nice sheets of lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is jet black.

S: Coffee, promising to be on the bitter side, roasted malts, earthiness.

T: Follows nose. Cold-brewed slightly bitter coffee notes, malts are roasty but not hugely robust, could almost be fooled into thinking there is a chicory quality as well, but I think I am imagining it.

F: Pretty light-bodied, probably needs a bit more heft. Light carbonation. Construction is good although it comes off a tad watery instead of full-flavored. Well-balanced and drinks nicely.

O: Not bad for a light ABV coffee stout, but it lacks heft and complexity.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. Beer pours with a massive light brown head that dissipates quickly. Generally light black appearance. Coffee is there in the aromas, but its not too overpowering. I found the taste to have more bitter black coffee dimensions than what the aromas were hinting it. However, the flavors were well balanced and nothing too coffee-ish or underwhelming. Decent creamy texture with a good, moderate amount of carbonation. Overall, not the most explicit coffee flavors for the coffee stouts I like, but there is still a good coffee taste characteristic.

16oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Black pour, thick brown head that retains forever. Chunky lacing.

S: Earthy, overall. Cold brew coffee, grassy and piney hops, cola, otter dark chocolate.

T: Cold brew coffee, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, cola, Smokey, French roast. Dose of pine, bark and grass from the hops. Trailing hop finish with smoke and French roast beans.

M: Medium bodied, lithe, stiff and scrubbing carbonation. Sits lightly.

O: Coffee character seemed a bit bland, though the beer itself is well done and tasty. Drinks on the lighter side and comes across more porter-like to me, not that there’s much difference between porter and stout. Just consumer expectation, I guess.
