Thanks to emerge for grabbing me this one. Pours an extremely dark brown that borders on black with a thin light tan head on top. Aromas are solid with dark roasted malts alongside a bright fresh brewed coffee, akin to sniffing some fresh ground beans.

First sip brings smooth dark malts up against a wall of rich coffee flavor. Hints of chocolate intertwine with a nice roast. Flows down with a touch of creaminess and lingering java aftertaste. Not nearly as viscous as I expected.

Mouthfeel is smooth with good carbonation..body is more along the lines of a regular stout to me than an "imperial" stout but I'm not complaining. Overall, a tasty coffee stout from a great new local brewery. Being this is my first bottle Half Acre beer I've tried, I am looking forward to more.

Price: $10.49 Served In: Pint Glass

much thanks to hack for the gift!

been dying to try this one since it has been buzzed about by the Chicago crew.

smell is all coffee.. good coffee. very pungent. there's not much else there to report. this is Starbuck's lounge to me.

taste is mostly java and some chocolate. very thin. not at all what i expected. makes it go down quite easily but i was expecting something more meaty.

not a bad coffee stout. for me CW Coffee has set the bar. this doesn't live up to that standard. i'd love to try it on tap one of these days.

Served In: Snifter
