4.16/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: black just a hint towards brown. a half finger of a tan head that sticks around for ages. opaque.

Smell: big whiff of coffee, balanced nicely by chocolate and maybe a little bit of creamy sweetness

Taste: coffee and chocolate all day. bitter and sweet. nicely balanced. sweetness is a bit strong but it ends with bitter coffee

Mouthfeel: fairly light and a bit creamy. lingering bitterness at the end

Overall: a short time into the beginning of their bottling campaign Odd Sides does no wrong by me. they do a great job with styles i don't general care for (blonde ales, coffee beers, black ales.) And they seem to have a strong focus on flavorful but sessionable beers (few of their beers are over 6%) I will certainly continue to check out their new releases

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic fruity chocolate and some roast.

The flavor is sweet tart fruit, lactose and chocolate with a little roast in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, the tart fruit doesn't mix well with the chocolate and roast. Possibly a bad 6 pack?

Pours dark black with a small head that dissipates quickly. Plenty of chocolate aroma, some coffee but the chocolate dominates. Taste is chocolate, chocolate and then some, especially the first sip or two. Coffee perks up after a while and plenty of hop bitterness with some citrus as well. Kind of grows on you but maybe a little to much chocolate or just not the right mix with the hops. Robust mouth and relatively easy drinking. I don't like a lot of carbonation and this is about right. Taste lingers a bit but not bad. Overall, a good beer to try but probably not going to get a second chance from me. Odd Sides continues to make beers I like trying but, more often than not, don't go back to.

Pours dark with good looking tan head. Aromas are dark chocolate and coffee . . . Surprised ? Taste is coffee forward of course with a nice chocolate finish. Very delicious and drinkable koffee stout. Well done Odd Side.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This stout is dark brown, reasonably thick but letting alight light into the body. The frothing medium-brown head starts at a seemingly dense finger before the big bubbles dissipate to leave behind a foam, which in turn leaves behind moderately heavy spotting.
The aroma offers plenty of roast, notes of coffee grounds (specifically dry), cocoa, and meaty sort of walnut. It's both a little powdery-dry and somewhat creamy.
The roast offers a sort of twang on the tongue, a touch of char all the way through, with a certain nuttiness and a hint of something like wood smoke.
The feel is frothy with a bit of a nip in the crispness. It has a steely note and is thinnish for the style in its medium body, particularly as the palate combines that with the mineral feel.

Surprisingly very tasty for a chocolate beer, fudge and bitter real coffee taste. Above average mouthfeel. Thick black body.
