Onyx black, shiny and vibrant color. Thick foamy head forms from the agressive pouring to last longer than I expected, solid looker. The aroma combines a clear coffee aroma, like fresh ground beans, and sort of smokey, dark roasted malts. The hops are subdued but seem to add a bit of pine in the smell. Taste upfront is slight espresso notes, toffee and nuttiness. Hops are far outweighted by the strong coffee and the loads of dark malts. Just a bit of astringnet bitterness in the finish, rather dry.

Despite hightened expectations, I found this stout to be short on the coffee and short on flavor. I was expecting bold coffee, burnt-to-a-crisp malts and equal amounts of sticky hops. This was a barely mediocre. Not bad for the price I guess, I still do enjoy the coffee notes in the nose, but overall I found this beer failed to meet most of my expectations.

On tap at L&M Lanes in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a quarter inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells and tastes basically the same- like roasted coffee beans, vanilla, and chocolate. For an espresso stout, the coffee aspect to this is relatively light, unfortunately. None of the flavors particularly jump out of the glass, it just goes down with really any second thought.

Medium bodied, smooth, silky mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

A bit uninteresting, this brewery hasn't exactly impressed me yet.
