I love me some odd sides, but something went wrong here. Maybe my bottle or the batch but this had some very unforeseen and unpleasant sour notes. Poured it out. Then poured a nihilist.

I was surprised. I was looking to find the base of hipster, mokka munt, or morning wood.

Looks like motor oil. An aggressive pour will yield a few fingers mocha head that dies quickly and leaves no trace. Aroma is fantastic: sweet double - double coffee and bittersweet cocoa nibs. Taste follows with a roasted bite. Big drawback though is the mouthfeel, it's thin and watery. If it could be made creamier it would be near perfect.

Poured into a tulip glass it has a black body and a beige 2 and a half inch thick head. Smell of chocolate, fresh coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, small amount of cherry, bee's wax, and earth. Taste is milk chocolate, some fresh thin black coffee, vanilla, and bitter roasted malts. A nice bittersweet chocolate and coffee stout. It has a thin mostly oily light to moderate mouth feel with only a bit of carbonation and a moderate body. Pro's: Very easy drinking, exactly as described, nice smell, and a everyday stout. Con's: Not very complex, mouth feel is weak, and the flavor isn't as strong or full as I'd like it to be.

Pours black with a very minimal tan simmering head.

Aroma is sweet and chocolatey. Almost syrupy. There is more depth to the nose than just this, but I'm having a hard time understanding exactly what it is.

The flavor is not quite what I was expecting. It has a sharp, souring taste mid-way through the sip that is enough to make my eyes squint. I do notice some chocolate in the flavor, some coffee also, and it seems to have somewhat of a smoked flavor. If they could do this without that sour note (I have to believe it was unintentional), this would be much better.
