    Yeah it's been out for awhile. I thought the coffee was a bit too strong for my taste.

    Picked up a sixer last weekend! It's delicious! One of my all time favorites by NG!

    Actually Scotch Ales are really the one style I never liked. I'm still gonna try it but I doubt I will have anything good to say about it.

    It is always strong when fresh. It's a great one to age. I had a last years on Thanksgiving and it was fantastic. I think if more people aged this it would have a much higher score.

    It's decent but it's very light for a coffee stout. It's more like a coffee porter than a coffee stout. You'll see what I mean when you drink it. It's enjoyable but the body is lacking.

    Heading to Milwaukee Wednesday, I'll have to pick some up to age. Not a huge coffee fan, hoping that the aging will tame it down. Guess I'll get some Winter Warmer while i'm there.
