What a treat, quite the surprise in fact. Tony youíve out done yourself. Big huge coffee nose, nice acidic coffee taste, though nearing on too much acidity. this is one big and sweet coffee stout. Good stuff.

32 ounce growler, filled earlier today. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stays around for a while. There isnít much of any lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some molasses. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, with there being a good balance between the sweet and roasty bitter flavors. I do think the roasty coffee flavors are stronger overall, and get stronger as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and coating with low/moderate carbonation. I think itís a good stout, Iíd certainly buy it again in the future. Nice to see that Columbus Brewing can make a tasty stout too, in addition to their great IPAís!

Draft pour. Darker brown to ruby with a beige head. Aroma is heavy on coffeeand roast. The taste is fairly roasty and bitter but moves to a quick near ttartness in the finish.

Growler courtesy of GatorGuy92. Cheers, Matt! Pours a nice stout brown with a tan head. Nose is some sweet chocolate, some espresso-esque coffee, some roast, and some lactose. Flavor is similar with roast, chocolate, sweetness, some espresso, and lactose. Medium in body and a nice coffee sweet stout.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Sample at the Columbus Microbrew Festival on 09/15/2013: Brownish-black pour with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of sweet chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. The finish is roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
