L light head. Thin. No lacing.
S coffee and some frapaccino?
T frappacino. That's the first thing I thought. I happen to love that taste. Maybe some coke?
M thin. Light carbonation.
O I love the taste. Thin and "sessionable"

Purchased in the Outer Banks during my beach vacation. Poured into a wine glass. Beautiful bottle.

Tastes like an Irish stout, but is categorized as an American stout. Easy drinking. IMO do not drink this one too cold. Let this one warm up.

A - Pours an opaque dark brown with half a finger head, which dissipates almost immediately. Well carbonated so you call always swirl to bring back the head. 3.25
S - Nice roasted coffee and malt. 3.25
T - Cold coffee, bitter, burnt malt, tinch of sweetness, faint dark chocolate. 3.75
MF - Thin(-), medium light, dry finish. 3.5

Poured into a Dogfish traditional oversized snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a swirly pattern of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Nice mocha coffee aroma that's moderately sweet. Like I'm smelling a Dunkin Donuts mocha iced coffee.

T- Flavor doesn't quite live up to the smell. More of a straightforward roasty character with only hints of coffee from there. Sweetness continues

M- As other reviewers have stated, quite thin for the style. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Starts out nicely with the aroma but goes downhill from there. A serviceable coffee beer but nothing particularly impressive about it.

Pours black with a half inch thick beige head. Smell of fresh ground coffee and roasted malt. Taste of cold coffee, roasted malt and a just a tiny bit of tart sour. It has a light to medium (more on the light side) body with a moderate mouth feel. Like others I agree this is more like a porter then a stout but it is well done (which is why I scored it low as a stout).

A- Pours with a thick caramel colored head that eventually settles into a thick layer over the brew. The color is deep coffee brown and almost borderline black....there is no seeing through this one! Cant tell what the carbonation is like but I'm guessing by the head that its mellow. Lacing is pretty decent as well with many sticky small patches clinging to the glass!

S- Awesome dark chocolate and dark roasted black coffee aromas dominate the nose with hints of burnt malt, earth, raw vanilla bean, blackstrap molasses and perhaps some licorice root. The finish is dry and not very bitter, just dry-ish!

T- The flavors are primarily of coffee, muted dark chocolate, molasses, charred malt, and some toffee sweetness to help balance everything out! Everything is a little lighter than I anticipated.....not as robust as the aromas let on, so slightly disappointing on that front but nothing that breaks this one.

M/O- Again, not what I expected.....leans towards the light body end of things and the carbonation is more zingy than I thought it would....much more cleansing than a normal stout but not offensive....just different. Overall this is a good beer in terms of looks and aromas, the flavor and mouthfeel is slightly underwhelming but I have had worse. I still recommend this and would probably get it again....would probably be a great addition to a stew base!
