Big disappointment. I really wanted to like this beer b/c I love stouts and love coffee. The coffee element overwhelmed me and detracted from the good things: beautiful color and pour, great aroma. But it tastes like someone took a solid stout and poured a cup of super strong coffee into it. Subtlety anyone?

16 oz can

Pours opaque black, very fine light tan nitrous head retains well at a half inch.

Smells of coffee, chocolate syrup, cracker and biscuit, and lactose.

Tastes of coffee, mocha, cream, and dry biscuit.

Medium creamy body, light carbonation on the tongue.

Reasonably decent coffee stout. The pour is pretty but the nitro doesn't come through in the feel as much. Flavor is average and inoffensive. Nothing off putting. Not especially memorable.

Really nice look with a big creamy head. Smell is nutty, coffee deliciousness. The taste, to me, was both, a pleasant surprise that I do not taste the aluminum can, but I was also a little disappointed in the watered down flavor. The feel is comforting, creamy goodness. Overall, I was apprehensive about buying a beer from a can, but it was quite pleasant in general.

approximately 16 oz can, into glass

pours a dark brown color with the swirling nitro settlement into a normal looking stout with the creamy thick nitro head. mild coffee aroma. taste is mild as well - roast is subtle, not too dry. body feels a bit thin.

on tap at Filet 18 in Bloomsburg on 9/7/17.

Looks pretty good, black body coffee with cream head which persists leaving nice lacing initially

Aroma is all about the coffee.

The taste is also all about the coffee. There is only a hint of roasted malt, which I appreciate, not being a fan off stouts where the malt borders on burnt.

The mouth is on the thinner side, which is a bit of a letdown for the style. Finish is smooth and coffee.

Overall, if you like a lot of coffee in your stout, this is a pretty good option.

Serving: Can
Best before: Jan-2018 (Consumed: August 23rd)


A:
Pours a cascading black with a half-finger of mocha nitro head. Good retention; some lacing. (4)

S:
Rich, nutty coffee. (3.75)

T:
Same as the aroma with some light mineraly taste as well. (3.75)

M:
Easy-drinking body with a soft nitro feel, a little thin-feeling. (3.75)

O:
Tasty enough beer.
It is pretty coffee-centric, nice looking, smooth and a little nutty. Not a bad beer at all, but nothing too snazzy either. (3.5)

Pours a black brew with the usual long-lasting, brown nitro head. Appealing. Lots of coffee, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt. Dry taste, medium hoppiness. Tastes more like an Irish stout in my opinion. Not as much bold flavor as other beers of the same style. Medium bodied, smooth. Light carbonation. Overall a great brew.

I really liked this stout. The Nitro added smoothness and gave the beer a creamy and soft head that stayed a long time. Nitro is great.

Look: black color with a thick, creamy, good lacing, off-white head.

Aroma: roasted malts and chocolate

Taste: Roasted malts, sweet, dark chocolate, coffee. Very nice.

Feel: light to medium body, creamy
