4.25/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

On draft at Mikerphone. Served in a stemless glass. Pours a dark black body, half finger mocha head, short retention and no lacing. Smell is roasted coffee bean, more roast, a bit of cocoa sweetness, milk chocolate and a bit of graham cracker. The coffee is dominant as expected on both the aroma and flavour. The palate follows the nose; roast coffee, touch of dark fruit, cocoa, milk chocolate and a bit of earth on the backend. Sweet up front, but somewhat balanced out by the hefty coffee presence. Mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy and soft, lots of depth and fair amount of balance to it. A nice sweet coffee milkshake with carbonation, essentially.

Tasted in a tumbler from draft at the Mikerphone Brewing tap room on March 14, 2018. A triple-infused coffee oatmeal stout. Recommended if you like coffee stout.

750mL bottle shared with my friend, Ken. Black body with a creamy khaki head. Big coffee aroma with dark chocolate, graham cracker, and caramel. Big coffee flavors with dark chocolate, dark fruit esters, oats, and earthy hops. Very full body, boozy but not overly, and finishes quite sweet but fairly well balanced with coffee dominating beginning and end. "Triple infused" coffee pays big dividends for the coffee lover. This was great!
