look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured with one finger of off white foam on top of an opaque, dark brown body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves moderate lace on the glass.

S - Some chocolate and nutty caramel with a hint of mocha.

T - Thick malt with notes of bittersweet chocolate and espresso up front. Some nutty caramel character in the middle with a roasted note. Finishes with sweet, dark chocolate and more coffee character that combine for a distinctly sweet, mocha aftertaste that reminds me of good truffles.

M - A fairly thick, oily body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - Very nicely done, this beer combines coffee with the rich sugary potential of a sweet stout in a very effective way. It finishes sweet, to the point that I would call it out as a flaw if it didn't somehow work so damn well. One of the best from a brewery that makes quite a few excellent brews.

A: single finger head with little retention and not much lacing on a deep brown body with light passing through.

S: definitely has a nice cappuccino/espresso presence but the vanilla is the dominant aroma with roasted malt intermixed. Oddly enough, tomato as well which may be a weird combo of coffee and vanilla. Oak notes as well.

T: milk chocolate and vanilla up front with mild hops quickly fades to a burnt toast and bitter espresso finish.

M: moderate carbonation and lighter body than expected but still medium to full bodied.

Overall: I enjoy all coffee stouts so I tend to grade these higher. This one is nicely complex and captures a nice coffee flavor while reducing the coffee bitterness.

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

A: Dark brown with a slight reddish tint; steady light brown head and decent lacing

S: Definitely strong roasted coffee but also some citrus and herbal hop aromas hiding behind surprisingly; a bit subdued for a big coffee stout

T: Roasted coffee beans; malty and roasty and bitter; some creamy milkiness there too but mostly cheap coffee with a touch of smokiness that reminds me of staying up late in college with a pot of coffee and a couple of cigarettes

F: Medium to heavy body--a bit chewy and definitely creamy

O: Not my favorite big coffee stout but it's pleasant and the alcohol is hidden so well
