Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Smells of chocolate with slight coffee. Tastes of coffee with slight chocolate. Beer is medium bodied yet easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a small-sized, light khaki-colored head.

Smell: A chocolate-coffee nose with a softened, sweetish roastiness, a perceived creamy accent and touches of brown sugar and fruit.

Taste: Sugar sweetened coffee that, with a touch of chocolate, gives a tone of mocha (also sugar sweetened) yet also has some cola qualities. A little dark fruitiness, a little tiny pour of cream. Finishes a bit sweet with that same chocolate-coffee-cream hint.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: Simple though moderately pleasant.

I got a can of this beer from a Holiday 24pck that I picked up from my local Target store. It poured an opaque dark with ecru ring head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had mocha coffee notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with chocolate, coffee and subtle vanilla. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a great beer.

12oz can poured into a pint

A- pours black in color with a one-finger creamy khaki head that has good retention

S- a big mocha aroma on the nose gives notes of chocolate syrup, espresso and heavy cream. Undertones of roast, milk sugars, hazelnuts and a hint of caramel

T- sweet milk sugars up front gives notes of vanilla cream, quickly followed by a mocha note that adds chocolate and fresh espresso. The finish gives syrupy chocolate and espresso, that sticks around in the linger

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a silky finish

A very poor tasting coffee stout. It’s rather weak for an espresso and it tastes like bad coffee. The redemption is the alcohol content, but I am not about to drink this again.

I get a nice, strong coffee smell. I didn’t get a milk flavor or taste. It’s not great but it’s not bad.

Pitch black with three fingers of tan head. Rings of lace appear as the head slowly recedes.
Smell is rich dark roast coffee with cocoa nibs.
Taste is dark roast coffee cocoa bitterness with good malt backing.
Mouthfeel is full with good carbonation. Finish is slightly bitter and mildly dry.
Overall a fine Stout. Experience by 6/16/2020.
