Black pour with a small brown head. Really nice dark roasted coffee aroma. Taste follows the nose with a strong dark coffee flavor that has a mild toasty bitterness. Creamy body.

Fantastic coffee stout! I found this one almost by accident on a business trip to Lafayette, Louisiana, when a client recommended that I try them out. I found a few other beers I liked, but LOVED the coffee stout. Rich and thick without being too heavy, with an unmistakable coffee aroma. Has a surprisingly clean finish for such a bold beer. For this brew alone, Parrish is on my must-visit list any time I'm back in Lafayette.

Appearance: extremely dark brown, almost black - just shy. Luxurious, silky in appearance when poured, and thick. A light brown head forms and fades quickly to nothing.

Aroma: coffee, dark roasted coffee - like sticking your face in a bag of whole beans. Wonderful!

Flavor: very well balanced. The coffee flavor is prominent (cold-brewed?) but not overpowering. Surprisingly this beer is not sweet. Coffee stouts tend to finish too sweet. Not this one. The coffee is "natural" tasting; sometimes flavored beers, most often vanilla, have an artificial taste. This one seems completely natural. It bears repeating: very well balanced.

Mouthfeel: medium-medium body, yet it doesn't seem that the cumulative effect of the body would weigh you down much after 2 or 3.

Overall: this is an impressive beer! Far better than expected. The balance is absolutely spot on. The coffee flavor is not restrained but also not overwhelming like so many others become toward the end of the beer.

Wonderfully balanced coffee stout. All too often you end up with too much coffee with a resulting thin body, or sacrificing the coffee flavor in sake of body. No problems here despite the medium ABV
