Bottle. Dark brown with a thick and lasting beige collar. Lots of chocolate in the aroma. Dry cocoa powder and coffee beans. Light to medium in body with medium bitterness. Pretty good.

12 oz bottle.

A – Very dark brown, near black, opaque. A fairly vigorous pour only produced a a short tan head but it proved to be semi-durable and left very good lacing.

Aroma – Mild-moderate strength. Appealing but earthy coffee aroma with dark bread and a surprisingly strong dark chocolate note. Pleasant hints of oats and toffee.

Flavor: As good as the aroma suggests, with a fine coffee flavor over a well crafted stout. Some hop bitterness as well. Very dark roasted grains with minimal burnt toast, faint black pepper, and some dark chocolate notes. Excelent bitter/sweet balance.

Feel – Medium-full body is creamy smooth. Soft, medium carbonation.

Overall: excellent coffee stout.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours jet black in color with a small foamy khaki colored head that reduces to a thin film skimming the top

S- charred malt up front mixes with aromas of chocolate, peppery & earthy coffee, dark fruits and mocha cream

T- earthy and peppery coffee up front has some dark fruit notes. Semi-sweet chocolate and charred malt mid-palate. The finish is almost fruity with a linger of more char

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a semi dry finish

O- this particular variety seemed to have a distinct black peppery finish, pretty good

"Four distinct single origin coffees from around the world each brewed with the same base stout." Brewed in the style of an American Stout, available in 12 oz. single bottles as part of a varietal 4 pack with other variants. Featuring a blend of coffee bean varietals from the Guatemala Huehuetenango region.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a snifter glass.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, foamy head of a medium brown tone over a near black body. Retention is average and lacing is light and spotty. 4

(Smell) Solid malt base of equal parts chocolate and caramel malts, with a moderate roast finish. The impact of the Guatamalan beans generates moderate dark fruit notes and a high cleanliness with light acidity and delicate roast. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) Moderate roast and cocoa nibs come together for a modest, but enjoyable stout body. The coffee impact from the Guatemalan bean blend is very subtle and transparent, generating notes of light roast and subtle fruit with less biting acidity than the Kona varietal, although the end result is a beer seemingly less distinctive and smoother with its coffee flavor. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly residual, mildly oily, silky, medium dry. Carbonation is moderate, generating a mild frothiness and a modestly crisp finish. Body is medium for the style, medium/heavy overall. Balance is nearly even roasty bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is light and there are no off characters. 3.5

(Overall) Again, an enjoyable but necessarily ordinary and simple stout body that stands well on its own gets the coffee treatment from Guatemalan beans. The bean inclusion comes off slightly smoother and more refined in their flavor, generating subtleties of dark fruit and a moderate roastiness, but little of the gruff or acidity that other varieties have that give coffee a distinctive flavor. Thus, this bean does not come through as boldly in the flavor as I had hoped for, and fades somewhat against the stout background. I don't like it any less than the Kona version, but I don't think the coffee is distinctive enough to be a necessary addition. 3.75

I sampled the Sumatra version of this offering first because I thought that the Guatemala would offer more potent roasted notes. The opposite proved to be the case. Like the Sumatra, this offering pours an exquisite almost black color with at least a finger of tan head. The roasted notes in both the nose and the flavor profile are slightly less bold than the Sumatra.

I am still seeking out the Ethiopia version because I anticipate that it will possess a bolder roast profile than either the Sumatra or the Guatemala. I will likely skip the Hawaii as it promises to be the mildest of the four options.
