‘Excitation’ Stout by Category 12 Brewing 

Ooo more Category 12?.. A FUCKING COFFEE STOUT!? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP HONKY!! 

What did you think I meant?

Got a little carried away there. Two of my favorite things at once apparently can make me flip my shit. 

The pour is clear jet black with a half finger of fizzy chocolate brown head that immediately waned to a galaxy haze. Have some thin curtain lacing. 

The smells are big espresso coffee, and very light cacao nibs. Coffee and cacao. That’s all. 

The tastes are super coffee forward. Getting dark roast coffee, light cacao nibs, and a slight vanilla smoothness. Very to the point, coffee stout. Tasty! 

The mouthfeel is thick, tar like, and filling as all hell. Has a good amount of carbonation, somewhat surprisingly. Coffee bitters hang on the palate for long after the beer is gone. Zero stickiness on this stout, also quite surprising. 

3.5/5 A big, bold coffee-forward stout that takes no prisoners! This is pretty much a must-have if you like dark coffee. Seems like a great winter, by the fireplace, type of beer.
