A- Easy to develop head, creamy appearance, but closer inspection reveals its mini and tiny bubbles closely packed. Good to decent lacing, dark oatmeal colored head. Retention was acceptable.

S- Strong licorice notes, bitter acrid grains, burnt coffee grounds, ethanol littering the edges, volatile spirit nature.

T- Blasts you in the mouth with insanely cloying bitter coffee ground and burnt grain. Really really harsh, acidic. Uncooked coffee bean mixed into the mash tun? Oh its... oh its got a harsh finish too. Its bitter of black coffee, not hops. That biting acidity that can only be described by tannins, coffee grounds, and espresso. There is some roast characteristic trying to balance it, a light sweetness as well. Doesn't really help. It hides the alcohol flavor well, at least.

M- Puckers my mouth due to the acrid and acidic nature. Full bodied. Some noticeable creaminess does break through the harshness of the beer. Carbonation bright at the beginning, but quickly blows away before the finish.

Like Founder's Breakfast Stout, but even worse.

Pour is black with a good bit of khaki colored head and some large bubbles. Nose is slightly burnt malt, hint of vanilla, faint coffee note. Flavor is even more burnt than the nose, a touch of dry bakers chocolate, slight coffee and lingering coffee bitterness. Creamy feel, soft carb, medium body.

Poured intona tulip.

Jet black in color. khaki head one finger in size fades to a ring.

Aroma is primarily coffee, along with vanilla spice. Roasted chocolate malt firmly in the background.

The flavor is mainly dark roasted coffee along with vanilla bean up front. Chocolate malt is 2nd fiddle. Acidic coffee on the finish.

A little thin on the mouthfeel, given that its a big stout. Not satisfying.

Overall it's not bad. Similar to the appraoch of FBS. I just had speedway stout recently so its hard not to compareit to that. I enjoyed speedway much more. I can see how many would like Sweet Tats though.
