3.15/5  rDev -20.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

An enjoyable coffee stout, but a little bit sweet for my taste.

Appearance: dark brown, not quite black, medium, fairly rich head.

Smell: Lots of coffee and chocolate; if you lef tit under my nose, I could be convinced that it was a mocha rather than a beer.

Taste: a bit too much coffee and chocolate; lacking in the depth of many other 'specialty' stouts, but with too much sweetness to be a dry stout. This gets caught in between the two, in an unsatisfying way.

Mouthfeel: Substantial, rich, but lacking in complexity.

Overall: I'm happy to have had it, but their other offerings are better, as are others' similar offerings.

I tried this beer at the brewery. It poured an opaque black with tan head that did not leave any lace. The scent is coffee. The taste is coffee. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's ok.

A - Luscious black in color with a solid, creamy tan head. This beer exudes coffee just in looking at it.

S - As mentioned above, the smell begins before even approach the glass. Both coffee and chocolate notes create a robust and complex treat for the nose when blended with the character of the roasty malts.

T - The flavor of bittersweet chocolate and strong black coffee blend well with the oatmeal and roasted malts balanced with the hop profile although not straying from the malty character one might expect from this style of beer.

M - Creamy and rich. Coats the mouth nicely.

O - The perfect breakfast beer. Coffee, great taste and smell, along with a little cereal bowl of chocolaty oatmeal.
