Picked up a single at Princeton's Liquor. Poured black with a tall tan head. There's a pleasant bitter mix of cocoa and coffee grounds but the aroma is off. Instead of that tasty black grain mix, this beer smells like a dirty tap line. That's a damn shame, the underlying stout shows a lot of promise, but its going sour.

Based on the other reviews I've seen, mine may have been over carbonated or some how I shook it up a bit when walking from the fridge to the table.

Appearance: Dark brown to black beer resides under a large bubbled light-tan head. This beer poured lots of foam right away.

Smell: This smelled of roasty chocolate with some dark fruit hints. American hops aroma layered in there, which came out a lot more when it warmed up more.

Taste: Roasted malt-chocolate-dark fruit at first. Coffee came out then turned more to burnt coffee mingling with some roasted malt astringency, a little too much possibly for the style. The american hops is ever-presently layered in throughout the beer nicely.

Mouthfeel: This had a foamy, not creamy, effect in my mouth making it difficult to enjoy. Body seemed medium, but again hard to tell with the carbonation. I

Overall: Appearance and smell made my mouth water. Tasting initially was good, but with warming a burnt coffee taste came forward and started ruining what was off to a good start. I have a feeling I may have just gotten an over carbonated batch or bad travel conditions. I will need to try again to reevaluate.
