Nothing more to say. Well worth the $5 I paid for it. Strong finish. Sweet with a mixture of alcohol and molasses.

Pours almost black, nice brown head fades quickly, excellent lacing. Aroma is heavily roasted barley, burnt coffee and cocoa. Taste follows. This is a nice bid thick chewy beer, one of the really good ones.

Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is vanilla, buttery dark butters. Taste is smooth and hard to explain. Not super stylized...no overwhelming coffee or dark chocolate. Just smooth, delicious. This is a stout among stouts. That perfectly weird pop song you love on the radio but can’t explain why. A class of it’s own.

Go Lehigh. Lafayette Sucks. 2014 Bottle (13 months old) to goblet. Aroma is a lot of roasted barley. Hints of coffee also. Appearance: Dark black color, very thick, with thick light tan head. Taste: bitter dark chocolate, roasted barley, maybe a touch burnt. Excellent beer though. Feel is thick and meaty. Not quite as tasty as some other stouts, but all the peripherals are on the mark. Excited to age a few of these further.
