DARKLY ENTICING – smooth, velvety cream cascades into a jet black brew revealing a rich, robust character. The dark roasted malts create notes of bittersweet chocolate with hints of dark fruit while the Sumatran & Indian Monsoon Malabar coffees develop a deep roasty dimension.

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 of 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.
