Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of beige head that retained for a good long time. Roasted notes combine with some subtle coffee notes on the nose. The roast in the flavor profile is quite strong but I am not getting any distinct coffee notes. The bitter finish is excellent.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: a mix of dark brown and black with a ruby red note at the bottom of the glass. large 3-4 finger off white & tan head that fades and settles at about 1 finger

s: dark cherries, oak, toasted malt, smooth coffee, raisins, sweet toffee, a hint of burnt coffee beans

t: much more of that coffee/espresso in the flavor than the nose. right away its those espresso beans. that rich and toasted espresso fades to roasted malts, some sweet berries, caramel/toffee, and a nice creaminess. its not overly complicated, but its tasty

m: medium mouthfeel, with a little bit of sugary-syrup lingering feel. tiny bit of carbonation

o: this is my first offering from this brewery, and i'm quite impressed. its nothing mind blowing, but it definitely offerers a nice espresso flavor, and is backed by some other nice flavor you tend to see i a stout of this style. worth a try.
