Dark pour with an epic monstrous head. Aroma of brown sugar, light smoke, pepper, but most notably espresso. Taste is heavy on the coffee, dark malt, caramel, dark chocolate. Thicker body.

Nose is heavy of coffee. Taste much the same. The initial taste is good but it gets better after that. It has a strong coffee taste that lingers like a strong espresso. I really enjoyed this beer!

Draft sample at their brewpub, opaque deep dark brown (black) color with tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate and some cream. Taste adds dark coffee, some more cream, white sugar and caramel. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, sticky with nice sweet roast finish. It’s similar to a liquid donut and coffee, excellent.

Pours a deep brownish black from the can with thin ring of tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and deep roast. Taste is more toward the coffee and stout, nice balance, but a hint of soy sauce. Really nice, but may oxidize quickly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with a dissipating head that ended up hugging my glass. The aroma was very roasty of malts and coffee. I enjoyed the chocolate notes too. The flavor is of bitter coffee, dark roasted malts, a hint of milk sugar, and I can almost taste a donut like glaze. The finish is very coffee driven and the body is more thin than I expected. Overall a good beverage.

Sample at the taproom. This beer pours brown-black with a medium foamy khaki head that receded steadily to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose. Medium-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, along with flavors of chocolate and mild hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of stale watery coffee mainly. Flavor was more complex, more cold pressed coffee, a bit thin, but did actually finish with a donut finish. Weird.

Can shared at Kickback by Jason. Pours a dark brown/black with a lighter brown head. Aroma is of cold brewed coffee and surprisingly I get donut in there as well. Taste is roasty like an iced coffee with a touch of sugar. Definitely one of my favorites from the night.

16 ounce can thanks to John. Dark pour. Smell/aroma is great. Chocolate and roast and coffee and even some donut/lactose. Taste is medium body with same flavors. Very tasty.
