As any regular readers will know, I'm an absolute sucker for dark beers, especially when combined with coffee.

This Americano Stout by Stone Brewing was one of the bottles in my beer haul from Beer Gonzo last month; the fact that I've not drunk it already shows how much beer I've been buying lately!

In the glass it is a jet black colour with a small caramel coloured head which goes quickly.

It has an interesting nose, with hints of floral and citrus hops peeking out from behind the strong coffee, cocoa and vanilla aromas.

It drinks pretty good, with a roasted coffee dominating, however the initial sweetness is soon blown away by some pretty full on bitterness. With it's full body, more carbonation than expected and a heavy 'booziness' to the finish, it isn't as refined as some of the coffee stouts that I've drunk recently.

However, it is still very tasty and is something I would drink again.
