2.69/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Look: Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a thick light tan head.

Smell: Coffee really dominates the aroma, with possibly some malt and chocolate coming out.

Taste: Coffee, earthiness, some dark chocolate, and a tinny taste.

Feel: Bitter, almost acrid, and medium bodied.

Overall: I like coffee stouts, but I'm struggling a bit with this one. Bitter, and little depth. The off flavor bothers me too

22oz bottle, no date. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. Smells and tastes of very tart dark fruit and weak roasted malt; no coffee, oats, or lactose. Above average body and below average carbonation. Must be a bad bottle. It seems promising though, so hopefully I can revisit this someday and update my review.

650ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

Pours a dark cola coloured body, half finger white head, minimal retention, not much lacing. Smells of burnt dark coffee, a bit of chocolate, mild ethanol, teriyaki. Flavour is similarly teriyaki, a bit smoky, burnt coffee beans, dark chocolate, not a whole lot else. As it warms, a bit of alcohol burn finds its way in as well. Mouthfeel is medium-thicker bodied, hefty but ultimately a bit undercarbonated and a bit slicker than I'd like. Overall, it's got a bit of a meaty teriyaki smokiness to it that just isn't my thing. Good mouthfeel, low carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

This beer pours a nice dark brown color. The head is a nice tan color, frothy, and one finger. Good head retention, and nice lacing on the glass.
The nose is somewhat weak. I do get a hint of coffee, and maybe some milk/lactose.
The taste is mellow. There's a hint of coffee on the backside. Some biterness from it. Some milk/lactose flavor.
Somewhat on the watery side. Just not as thick as I would have expected from the ABV.
Not bad overall, but I've had beers that are way better examples of this style.

Poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Dark coffee brown with a 1.5 finger tan head and some small spotty lacing. The aroma is fresh coffee and espresso layered in with a nice base stout of roasted malt and dark chocolate. The flavor is big on cold brew coffee and espresso. The stout notes are of roasted malt and bitter chocolate. There is also a nice sweet lactose flavor to mimic sugar and cream. Feel is very velvety and rich. This was a well executed beer that is creamier than CW coffee stout.
