Poured a beautiful dark brown from a bottle. Thin tan head, strong toasty aromas. The coffee really shines through and is nicely balanced by the maltiness. I have yet to find a beer that had too much coffee, and there may not be such a thing. I will definitely come back to this one.

Bomber from Portland via the lake beer fridge. Pours a rich black with thinish head. Some lacing. Nose is mild; initial taste screams coffee and chocolate...very tasty. Smooth / full mouthfeel. Wish we could get this here.

I love this beer and this brewery. Itís a dark black roasty malt with a great coffee nose. I donít taste seven grains, just stout and coffee, Iím sure I can survive on it though!

Growler from Chuckís 85th. Pours deep inky brown with medium mocha head that fades quickly and laces well. Aroma is big espresso notes, lightly sweet dark chocolate malt, with dry oaky flavors as well. Taste is rich super smooth roasty chocolate malt, mild but noticeable bitterness, and sweet nutty espresso that really jumps out on the finish. Perfectly balanced, amazingly rich and flavorful particularly for such a low abv. One of the best stouts around; and organic as well. Really impressive.

On tap. Pours a very dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of coffee, fruit and malts. Flavors are similar but stronger with define black coffee notes and a slight sour fruitiness. Nice.
