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.

a very good stout, but maybe a little light in body for the style. dark brown in color with a nice luster to it and a tall but fading tan colored head that leaves some patchy lace as it fades. the nose here is all coffee, rich and almost taking on a berry component, while the black barley and chocolate malt to just enough to remind me this is beer. the flavor too is coffee heavy, with a distance bitterness and mild acidity. earthy and a little smoky, with enough bitter malt to back it up without overcrowding its contribution. one of the more coffee forward beers I've had, but the acidity is off putting when it warms, although the alcohol remains well hidden. a fun take on a coffee beer, with espresso added directly, but this could be cleaned up a little bit and turned into a real gem. more body would be a nice place to start, this feels a bit thin for all the earthy bitterness going on the the flavor. carbonation is there though puffing it up. i would buy this again.
