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.

Smells coffee, chocolaty, roast malt. Pours black with a dark tan head. Tastes bitter, coffee, cola nut, bright notes (cherry?). Nice finish feels light, but has significant body. Interesting body. A complex brew that seems to be many things to me. Impressed.

kathouse (1261) - Nevada, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours dark with a light tan foam. Strong coffee and red fruit aroma. Coffee astringent flavors fade into pleasant black malt and fruit finish.

PartyFowle (634) - - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Impenetrable black -- no dawn here. Half a finger of fuzzy tan head pops away quickly. Rich, savory aroma. A little soy, spicy coffee, burnt toast, booze, a flash of sourdough. Spicy, oily coffee, black pepper and toasted sourdough up front in the flavor. Sweeter at the swallow, smoothed out by oats and milk chocolate. Bitterness lingers on sides of the tongue. High, pinching carbonation in a smooth medium body. Not too heavy, holds together as it moves. Not a ton of heat either. Good not great. There are better stouts with clearer coffee flavor.
