650 ml bottle thanks to AdamC. Black as a struck match with a thick full tan head. Aroma is rich dark chocolate, bitter espresso bean and a note of molasses. Nice!
The flavor is pretty bitter coffee beans with a nice base of barley and roasted grain. Has a very "green" coffee bean that becomes bitter in the finish. The body is thick and full with a creamy texture. Gosh, this is some thick ass shit right here! Leaves a creamy film over my tongue. You could drop a scoop of vanilla ice cream in this and make an ice cream float. Crazy amounts of coffee and vanilla.

Bomber, split with a few RBers. 4 ounce pour in stemware at cellar temp.
A - Pitch black, this is a thick oily black.
S - The aroma is huge. Chocolate and espresso bean and vanilla. It’s huge.
T - This is just straight up coffee.....so much coffee and espresso bean and vanilla and maybe even some cinnamon. Roasted notes start quickly and linger for a while. There’s sweetness in the middle and finish.
M - Dense, thick, low bitterness and low carbonation.
O - This is fantastic. If you love coffee, grab a bottle.

Almost black with a caramel head. Finally a super solid coffee stout. Tastes like a cocoa stout with fresh crunched coffee beans (minus the actual crunch). Smells like fresh brewed coffee in a high ABV beer. Love this.
