Shared bomber to snifters. Viscous oil. Nose hair curling aromas of coffee, sugar, and a little booze. All sugar up front but ever changing flavors of coffee, dark dark chocolate, vanilla, and roasted goodness. Velvety texture. Like MZ with delicious additions.

Bomber shared by Bvery. Thanks man! Dark pour, very thick with no head. Aroma is sweet with vanilla and strong coffee. Taste follows with some chocolate, really nice balance. Really good beer!!

Draft, ppurs dark black with small to medium khaki top. Really sticky mouthfeel with sporadic lacing. Aromas of rich espresso roast, fudgy chocolate, vanilla bean, roasted malt and barrel. Flavor is dark chocolate, wood, toffee, and dark fruits. It’s medium to fuller in body with some warming feeling but it’s also a touch sweet. Still very nice...smell was a knockout

Thick black pour with a slight tan head. Malty nose with some coffee and chocolate. Thick and very yummy. Cocoa vanilla boozy goodness.

Nitro... Pours pitch-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Stubborn retention. The aroma is a swirl of espresso, fudge, caramel and toasted nuts – pistachios and almonds. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is akin to a huge cup of cafe con leche and it’s every bit as sweet as dulce de leche. Finishes roasty and sticky-sweet. Even for a major malt-head like me, this is too sweet to drink more than one snifter. Enjoyability is high. Drinkability is low.

Growler from the brewery. Inky black pour that is very thick and dense and crowned by a thick head of tan colored foam. The foam slowly recedes and leaves sticky sheets of lace behind on the glass. The aroma is bold is with notes of roasted espresso, dark chocolate, molasses, and ample piney hop bitterness. The real star is the roasted espresso with the mocha sweetness and coffee bitterness that it adds. The flavor follows suit with more darkly roasted espresso, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The mocha sweetness is balanced out nicely by the dark roasted malt character and the hop bitterness on the back end. Full bodied and almost chewy as you would expect from a CCB stout and finely carbonated that’s leads to a sweet mocha finish. This is just a solid coffee stout. Wayne is still the master of the dark beers. Good stuff.

Growler shared at The Bruery - big thanks to Sam! Pours oily, black-brown with a thick, brown foam head. Heavy coffee on the nose with secondary notes of dark chocolate and tangy wood. Medium sweet flavor with more dense coffee, chocolate syrup, bittersweet baking cocoa, chocolate cake. Full bodied with fine carbonation and chewy texture. Rich dark chocolate character to finish with more hefty coffee, dirt and chocolate cake. Robust and decadent but still balanced and exceedingly tasty.

On draft and from a growler. Famous thick and sludgy CCB imperial stout pour. Beautiful brown almost red head. Cuban coffee nose! Dark sweet molasses as well. Sick and thick on the tongue, huge cafe con leche flavors just from the head alone mixed with brown sugar. This is a sweet stout with nice chocolate undertones as well. Wish they would bottle this bitch!
