A very thick, viscous pour of used motor oil has a dense tan head that quickly dissipates to a bubbly collar.

Smell has plenty of medium roast coffee with vanilla, cola and roasty but airy malt.

Taste is tangy roasted nuts and root beer with chocolate and cocoa via a smooth, medium body that finishes semi-dry to dry, and despite the abundance of coffee, leans overall semi-sweet.

In 1973 I was in high school and working part time for Sohio, the Standard Oil Company of Ohio. My last job before retiring last year was for a spin off of Sohio (BP did not want what to keep became TravelCenters of America). Anyway, the namesake brew is pretty good, like most Columbus products.

It's black and fizzy and has a really good roasty smell. The taste is on the malty side of the spectrum, sweet and roasty. Hops are prevalent as well. The finish is slightly sweet and clean. Easy drinking double.

Recommended as an easy American style stout.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This excellent brew pours a murky
blackish brown with nice head of brown foam that settles to a thick ring,
thin light pool, and shows some excellent lacing. Nose of rich coffee, dark
roast with subtle char, toffee, and dark chocolate. Flavors hit a delicious balance
of coffee and dark chocolate that is semi sweet and flavorful with touches of
light cream and char and a very light herbal hop in the background. Excellent mouth
feel; full body, medium light carbonation that is just right to cut through the heft of the
brew, and a long lingering coffee note that is lightly bitter from the malt with touches of
chocolate.

Stout lovers, this one is a must. Excellent work from CBC

Cheers

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

Description: Dark black with a small amount of coffee colored head. The smell is coffee. A lot of coffee. And not much else. Like the smell, the taste is dominated by coffee all the way through with not too much else going on. Feel is medium, which means it's a bit on the light side for a stout.

Suggested food pairing: Chocolate cake

If you like this beer then you should also try: Sumatra Brown

Overall: 3.75 (This beer is good but I would not likely drink it again) Pretty straightforward. It's a coffee stout and delivers what it promises as far as that goes. But there's nothing really special about this that would set it apart or make it memorable.

Among the best coffee stouts I've had. Smooth, medium roast coffee is front and center in both aroma and taste, but not overwhelming. Strikes an impressive balance between dark, slightly bitter roasted malts and rich semi-sweet coffee with cream. Body is medium and full, would like for it to be a bit more slick and viscous, but it fits nonetheless. If you like coffee beers you'll like this.
