COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

Opaque black with a nice dense inch dark tan head. A amateur mix of ingredients with the grass hops and roasted coffee malts giving this an unpleasant taste. A chalky residue, along with several other characteristics makes me think this did not age long enough before bottling.

"8.5%. Wouldn’t be able to discern brown sugar if not noted. Loads of coffee in the aroma and flavor., which is quite bitter following on the heels of a very smooth body. Very nice, not quite elite.

Middling black with a gradient slim ringed light brown head. Soured tobacco and itchy sawdust malt nose. Quite disturbingly upfront coffee bitterness. Slightly thin and buzzing mouthfeel, falls back on a tinny almost berry like dried back juiciness.

Habanero (2619) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt,bread, chocolateand licorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up slightly more dry. Full to medium bodied, oily texture and soft to flat carb. An excellent Impy.

Advocate_Ames (428) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a dark roasted black color with a thick foamy espresso like head that stuck to my glass. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, buttery sweet milk cream, and roasted malts. In tasting I noticed a roasted malt presence with a moderate bitterness. The bitterness was a blend of hops, coffee, and chocolate. I enjoyed the bitterness, it lingers and I was intrigued by the flavor. The finish leaves a bitter dryness which was to my liking. Overall this was a very good brew. I wish the aroma was fresher and that the flavor was more rich. The intensity of the bitterness was spot on. In the end I?d enjoy this beverage again.
