12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark cola brown body, nearly black, one finger mocha head, fair retention and a bit of lacing. Smell is espresso, a slight bit of roasted coffee bean, dark chocolate bitterness, a bit of cocoa and slight lactose. Flavour follows; a touch of lactose sweetness behind a strong espresso, dark chocolate squares, coffee bean and a bit of cocoa astringency. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, appropriately carbonated, a mix of lactose and dark chocolate on the finish.

Was very excited to try this beer. Pours a black color, little carbonation. Smells of a medium coffee roast that's just perfect. I could taste a hint of chocolate note as well though it was very slim. Tasted real smooth and delicious. Will buy many more.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 1/12/17.

Pours an opaque, dark brown, with a half inch foamy head, and some soapy lacing. Looks oily. The smell is big coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, milk chocolate, licorice, molasses, some caramel and vanilla, a light lactose aroma. The taste also leads with the coffee- but not quite as big, roasted malts, less cocoa and chocolate than the nose, molasses, light caramel and lactose, a good amount of bitterness throughout. Smooth, creamy, full bodied for the style, well carbonated.

A great, complex aroma with the incredible coffee, the flavor runs a little behind, but is still very good. Well worth grabbing a few bottles. A nice effort from Short's with this one.

Undated bottle. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into stout glass. It pours a nice, deep walnut with two fingers of creamy, mocha-colored head and lacing. It smells of burnt coffee, nuts, and whiffs of vanilla and tobacco smoke. The taste is better than the smell: burnt coffee, lactose, dry nuts, earthy peat, and a touch of molasses and caramel. All of the tastes blend nicely to create a pleasant and tasty stout. It finishes with a slight sour bitterness. It is medium-bodied and drinks like a porter, moderately carbonated, with light carbonation, and a manageable ABC of 8%. If this stout were more viscous and the ABV a little higher, then it would be outstanding. As it is, it's an easy drinking, tasty stout.
