Growler courtesy of BOLTZ7555, thanks J! Pours a dark black, somewhat transparent with brown hues. Aromas of coffee galore. A nice, dark roast. Some char and then vanilla sweetness. Taste is very nicely balanced with a dark roast coffee upfront and the typical bitterness subdued by the vanilla bean. Medium-light body, with fairly lively carbonation. Good stout!

Good full stout. Roasted and sweet aromas. Nice cascading dark color with a good foamy head. Weighty palate with a creamy smoothness. Roasted coffee and vanilla with a touch of lactose-like sweetness.

Growler, thanks to agent zigzag! Pours deep clear ruby black with a small tan head and some lacing. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, mocha, deep roasted malts. Flavor is rich mocha, light sweet and light bitter, touch of vanilla for good measure. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation. A darn good beer that I bet is even better fresh off the tap.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Draft. Black. Fair, lasting, creamy light brown head. Phenomenal coffee character all around. Fresh ground coffee. Vanilla compliments. Chocolate balanced a smooth roastiness. Very mild bitterness. Sweetness to balance. Medium body. Smooth and oh so drinkable. Outstanding coffee beer. ** New recipe (which replaces 2 lbs of the superstition blend with espresso) rocks. I like it even more.

Taste on tap. Lots of different sized bubbles off the nitro tap, it’s black and opaque. It doesn’t taste 6.6%. It actually sort of tastes just like coffee off the nitro, you have to adjust your expectations a bit. Enjoy the difference, it’s good man. They used decent coffee, i think. Yeah it’s an intense taste, with rich, pleasant bitterness. Good cuppa joe!

Draft taster at the brewpub. Same appearance as its base beer, the Organ Pipe, which is to say that this is a very attractive stout. Deep coffee brown with a finger of khaki-colored head. Gorgeous. Big coffee aroma, with dark chocolate, burnt toast, and leaves - really coffee-forward. The flavor showcases more of the vanilla than the nose does. Light-medium bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. I like what the coffee and vanilla did to the base beer. Really tasty.

Draft - Coffee and vanilla, like the chocolate covered coffee beans. Jet black with a rich nitro beige head. Much more subdued than I expected. Still full of dark roast.

Tap at brewery. I had just had an espresso from superstition only to find myself a few minutes later enjoying this beer made with it. This is great coffee and it really comes through in beer. Pours deep brown and nose is espresso, vanilla, and malt. Tastes much of the same in all best ways. It’s bitter and creamy and goes down so smooth. My kind of stout

Nitro on tap at brewpub. Black pour with medium sized beige head. Aroma is pure coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is big time coffee with initial taste of green vanilla beans, roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate and faint caramel notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with slightly bitter finish. Excellent beer!
