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.

Itzjerm (2159) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 16, 2016
At brewery. One of the worst coffee stouts I have ever had. Taste like Greene I roasted coffee beans. Astringent and gross aroma is the same. Nice head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (4637) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. Moderate coffee comes through in the aroma with supporting chocolate and a subtle toffee. Sweet and a bit roasty. Thicker mouthfeel. Big bodied and moderate carbonation.

luttonm (4442) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Collective on Tap, Woodinville. Creamy brown-black with great cream head. Relatively mild roasty malt aroma, grainy sweet malt body. Barrel-like creamy alcohol, mellow, sweet. Pretty tasty and smooth.

tmoreau (3506) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Shared 1 pint .9 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a ruby highlighted, black brown hue, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was green peppers and roasted coffee. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was dry & roasted, with a hint of fels naptha-like soapiness, and tar & earthy bitterness. Somewhat abrasive, and didn’t finish the sampler amount.

Idiosynkrasie (6056) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
500ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, a touch of vanilla, fruity hints of blue grapes. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, hints of coffee, fruity notes of dark berries, blue grapes, dry overtones of corresponding fruit parings. Relatively light, more sessionable than kind of a sipper.

Bottle, at Clayton’s. Huge Borgogne aroma. Velvet. Leather. Chocolate. Molasses. Taste is chocolate, red wine,, velvet,. Molasses, burnt roasted malt and butter from Pediococcus I am sure. A fascinating beer and great to style. Note this is not at all infected. What a pleasant surprise!

gregwilsonstl (1896) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Dark black. Heavy and oily at same time. Kinda bitter at first then rounds out to coffee. Roasted. Ok but not worth seeking out. Would like this thicker. Tasted at cuginos.

unclemike (2853) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Jet black pour with a tan head. Very nice aromas of dark roast coffee, dates, raisin, licorice toffee and black treacle. Full bodied brew. Flavours of smoke, sweet spice, lots of dark roast coffee and dark chocolate. Dry, smoky finish. Very tasty stuff.

Jultsu (594) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2016
BBE merkkaamaton, kuulemma kellarikypsytetty vähintään vuoden verran. Musta väri, mieto crememäinen vaahto joka häipyy nopeasti. Tuoksussa makeutta, nenää nyrpistävää etikkaa ensin alkuu, muuntuu lakritsaksi hetken päästä. Suutuntuma vetisehkö, leipäinen, maltaisen nenääkaivelevan lakritsainen, lämmettyään lakritsasoituu. Osuu ja uppoaa, mutta edelleen lievä laimea vetisyys ja ylärungon puute häiritsee.
