12oz bottle, bottling date 2/13/15 poured into a pint glass
A: Very dark brown with a fantastic 2+ finger latte-colored head that settles very slowly
S: Espresso, chocolate, dark malt, brown sugar, a hint of raisins
T: Matches the nose - particularly noticeable coffee and chocolate with more subtle malt/brown sugar and raisin
M: Medium+ bodied, a touch sweet, alcohol very well balanced
O: Fantastic way to start the day. Tasty beer, recommended

Pours a dark brown, thin cappuccino foam head and ultra thin ring of lace. Smells of coffee and vanilla. Roasted malt taste with a sweet creamy vanilla finish. Halfway, a modest doze of hops and espresso taste add a slight bitterness, although the finish remains sweet. Very smooth and easy to drink. Hard to tell it's 9%abv. A really enjoyable coffee stout.

Black as night body, aroma of coffee. Nice coffee bitterness on the taste.
Good coffee stout

Love the darkness...like liquid gold. Espresso smell jumps out at you. I am a lover of this style. Coffee taste and good bitter, smooth stout base. Mouthfeel is quite smooth once it warms up a bit. Overall a nice example of the coffee stout style. This one is quite strong at 9%ABV. Dessert in a bottle.
