COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dak. Thanks again for the extensive Bells stout hookup! Deep brown, almost black pour, with a 1 finger, nut brown, head. Strong nose of roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and wood. Smooth mouthfeel with the definite dryness of coffee. It is pretty dominating at first but the roasted malts and chocolaty notes come out as the beer warms a little. It’s almost a little too drinkable. I could see putting a few of these down in one sitting.

BigBeer45 (1402) - Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Drank from a shaker, from a bottle, the pour gave a large, thick chocolate shake like head of bubbles and the beer was black in the glass, the aromas were roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, a bit of caramel, malt, chocolate and brown sugar sweetness, it had flavors of big roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, a bit of roasted malt bitterness, some brown sugar and a touch of molasses, the roasted malt bitterness and coffee gave a good bitterness to balance the malt and chocolate sweetness, the bitterness and coffee hung around on the tongue, the mouth feel was medium to the light side of full and it was pretty creamy on the lips, the carbonation was average, this stout was a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, this bottle has sat around for more than six months, a fresher bottle would have more coffee and coffee bitterness, this beer was really nice, I recommend this drink.

mrjaxson (464) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Spectacular. Coffee extremely pronounced in the aroma (though there’s chocolate there, too) and the lingering finish. Malty sweetness doing battle with the subtle bitterness of the coffee. Tried it from a bottle both refrigerated to low 40s and at basement temperature (low 60s) and, by far, basement temp was superior. Allowed to rest six months after bottling.
