Some time ago . . . I became convinced that CBC can brew all things well. Sohio Stout is another world class beer from a great brewery !

Bought a 4pck of Sohio at Kroger just down the street. It poured an opaque black with tan head that is not leaving much lace. The scent is mocha. The taste is mocha. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a solid stout.

Poured from an hour old growler into a snifter. Appears a very full brown, almost to the point of being black. There's a small head that doesn't stick around too long, and leaves no lacing.

Nose is very rich, full of coffee (shoutout to the Cafe Brioso guys on this one), and dark chocolate malts. The alcohol is almost non-existent. Smell is just wonderful. Taste is also very full and complex. The sweet malts come through first, with the coffee following up next. Simply very full and rich.

The body is very thick, with limited carbonation. Not overly sticky, and goes down very smoothly. This is pretty drinkable for what it is. I definitely recommend starting it out colder, and enjoying the changes as it warms, a completely different experience from start to finish. Overall, this is another outstanding offering from CBC. Love being able to get my favorite coffee flavors in a great brew!

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.

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

32 ounce growler, filled earlier today. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stays around for a while. There isn't much of any lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some molasses. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, with there being a good balance between the sweet and roasty bitter flavors. I do think the roasty coffee flavors are stronger overall, and get stronger as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating with low/moderate carbonation. I think it's a good stout, I'd certainly buy it again in the future. Nice to see that Columbus Brewing can make a tasty stout too, in addition to their great IPA's!
