4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 On tap at brewery. Black with dense brown head. Nose coffee and sweet roast malt. Sticky. Taste is huge. Big sweet pungent coffee. Long and strong bitter back. Coffee and cocoa. Gooey as hell. Dry cocoa palate in finish. Rerating up from 4.1. Just super rich and thick, sharp and smooth and gooey all at the same time.

Opaque black with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, coffee, cream, charred wood, and alcohol. Taste of milk chocolate, coffee, smoke, dark fruits, and a stronger finish.

Pours thick dark unclear coffee black with a darker beige creamy. The aroma brings creamy coffee (amazing with no lactose, how?!), and a unqiue vanilla non harsh booze note so pleasant in the nose. The flavor is creamy marshmallow coffee so delicious on the tongue, sweet marshmallow dominating with smooth nutty coffee just pleasing my tongue so well.

Brewed summer 2013. Decent stout and coffee, bit coffee appeared a bit musty. Drinkable and decent but somewhat disappointing compared to hype.

750 with the crew and alongside regular speedway, jamaica, and barrel aged. Much creamier and smoother milk chocolate and roasty malt profile. Decent bit of coffee and roasted malt presence. Dark fruit comes through really well, plum and cherry. Medium coffee aromas and flavors.

Dark inky black pour.... Velvety body... Light tan head... Aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee notes.... Flavor is sweet milk chocolate with light spicy coffee notes... Hard to believe there's no lactose... Some nuts, totally unique coffee, berries... Great beer

Draft at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Quite dark brown-black, dark head. Tart dark fruit, subdued smoky coffee. Body is full of alc sweetness. Some dry bitter coffee roast coming through to balance slightly. Licorice notes. Quite hot, I’d rather try this less fresh I think.
