Bottle Comments:

Aroma:
Light coffee aroma to start, followed by some roasted grain and fruity notes. A nutty character to the malt aromas that play a supporting role. No hop aroma. For a coffee based beer the coffee character is low, and the overall aroma is closer to a regular stout.
7 / 12

Appearance:
Black with ruby/garnet highlights. Not completely opaque. Thin tan head. Moderate head retention and lacing.
2 / 3

Flavor:
Moderate roast grain flavour with low coffee character. No hop flavour. Malt character is low with a slight cider like sweetness in the finish.
13 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Low to medium body with some astringency. Low to medium carbonation.
3 / 5

Overall:
A nice drinking stout which misses some of the marks of an american stout (assumed base style). Coffee character is very low, which impacts its score in category 21B.
