Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a big, fizzy four finger light brown head that dissipates to a thick cap with good lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa and coffee. Flavor is semi-sweet dark toasted malt, cocoa, light coffee and a hint of vanilla. Very active carbonation cuts some of the flavor, but leaves a nice cocoa and coffee aftertaste. Rather overcarbonated, but with a medium body with hot, prickly carbonation. A modest coffee stout with light coffee and good chocolate flavors. The over active carbonation depletes a flavorful, but attenuated stout base. I like the flavors, but wanted to taste them more than I could. I'm assuming this is an anomalous bottle and I'd try this again for a better gauge of the flavor. Good but flawed carbonation.

First had: nitro-tap at their brewpub

Poured a dark brown with mahogany tints around the edges, and a creamy tan head that displayed excellent retention. Lots of roast in the aroma; coffee notes. Dark roasty malts in the taste, grainy oatmeal smoothness, and some roasty coffee. Smooth, but still dry in the finish. On the heavier side of medium-bodied, rich, and nicely drinkable.

Strong coffee notes on this one, slightly overpowering the malts. Wonderful mouthfeel though, very smooth on account of the oats.

$ 13.57 (Including shipping)/bomber ($ 0.617/oz) from Blackwell’s, San Francisco, CA
Undated bottle at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter, allowed to warm to 50 degrees
Aroma – coffee and chocolate. The chocolate disappears quickly and the coffee weakens
Head – average (Maximum 2.1 cm, aggressive pour), light brown, frothy, low density and short retention, diminishing to a three mm frothy ring and a thin ephemeral partial layer
Lacing - none
Body – dark brown/black, opaque. Initially some effervescence but that ended quickly
Flavor – weak coffee, lightly sweetened. No malt, hops, alcohol, nor diacetyl.
Palate – medium, slightly creamy, soft carbonation

Overall, kind of like drinking a McDonald’s iced coffee, except warmer. On the porter-stout spectrum, this seems to me to lie more to the porter end – medium body, low alcohol, slightly sweet.

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 3, Palate 3, Overall 3. Rating 3.15, rDev -12.3%.
