Draft. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma and flavor is like a strong cup of black coffee. There is a slight creaminess on the finish.

On tap at the Hollander. Nearly black pour with a slight, tan head. Aroma is brewed coffee, dairy creamer, a little oatmeal. Flavor is similar. Thick but not super-heavy mouthfeel. One of Abita’s better offerings.

Deep dark brown pour with a creamy white head. The nose is pretty
intense. Bitter cocoa and coffee with a nice roasty malt character on
the back. Tasty brew really. Rich and chewy. A little bit of salty

22 oz from Sam’s Bottle Shop for 5 bucks. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is milk and coffee; about what you would expect. A good balance between the two. Taste is slightly sweet and more leaning toward the coffee flavor than milk flavor. I don’t get much chocolate or other malt flavors out of this one though. Body is slightly thick, not too heavy though. Average carbonation. Overall quite a nice stout.

Coffee aroma with milk and oats. Sweet to start, then roast, coffee, ash. Quite tasty. Lighter bodied. Had on tap at the Gaslight in Joplin. Really enjoyed; one of Abita’s best.

This beer pours black with a small khaki head. The aroma blends coffee, caramel malts, vanilla, and roasted malts, and the taste is mildly bitter, mildly sweet, and slightly umami with a sweet coffee finish. The palate has an oily and thin texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation.
