Thanks to flyingbison for sending me a couple bombers of this…my last one and this one is for the review.

Pours a nice dark color with two inches of foam. Very good retention and some lacing as the foam settles down.

A big roasted coffee aroma with a good dose of toast and chocolate malts. Notes of roasted barley and a bit of astringency from the coffee. Coffee bread and hints of hazelnut and cream. Notes of tobacco and smoke as well. The coffee is there in abundance but there is enough toasted and chocolate malts to remind you that you are drinking a beer, well done.

Taste is much of the same with coffee upfront and quickly followed by bitter chocolate, toast and a touch of cinnamon in the finish. Some bitterness near the middle and it tries to end with some cream and sweetness in the end but it misses just a bit as a rush of coffee and roasted bitterness comes through. It’s a battle between the coffee and bitter chocolate malts throughout and I’m not sure which one wins…

Good mouth-feel, well carbonated, but a tad thin.

A very good coffee stout.
