3.64/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into tulip, > 1 finger tan head, so so retention, good lacing. Jet black in the glass, no light passes thru. Smells of roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee. Taste is initially burnt roasted malt, coffee and some slight chocolate notes. That pretty much carries thru to the finish, which has a mild betterness. This is one of those beers that is pretty close, but needs some work. Mouthfeel is somewhat lacking. Some work needs to be done on the middle and finish on this beer. It starts out great, but just doesn't finish

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a short dark beige head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted coffee beans are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is dominated by lots of flavors of dark and roasted coffee beans, which continue through the finish and linger in to the aftertaste; only faint bits of malts are perceptible. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has slightly thin with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a little thin and light in body for a stout but makes for a good breakfast beer with all of the coffee aromas and flavors.

Serving type: bottle

Looks like used motor oil on the pour.
Short-lived beige head.

Black in color and impenetrable to light. There's a half inch of densely packed brown head resting on top. The aroma is of dark and lightly bitter roasted coffee and chocolate. The taste is much more bitter than the nose implies with an aftertaste of dark, bitter coffee, toffee and dark chocolate that lingers a bit. The mouth is oily and warm.
