Nitro version on tap into a whiskey glass showing a lot of coffee translucency and slightly tanned white foam.
The nose shows mostly light coffee with a hint of adzuki bean sweetness.
The palate is smooth and light bodied with sligh adzuki bean sweetness on the mid palate and a slight coffee tartness. Flavors of light coffee and dark chocolate bitterness well paced throughout. This is a surprisingly drinkable stout.

On tap and on nitro at Modern Times brewery in San Diego. Deep black color and cascading beige head. Aroma of cocoa dust, coffee, smoke and chocolate. Flavor is coffee forward with smoked malt and light sweetness. Velvety soft palate. All around a great small stout that's really easy to drink. Awesome.

16 oz can.
More coffee in the nose than in the flavor, but even here it doesn’t mask the underlying stout.
Smooth, medium full body. Medium-low carbonation.
Good bitter sweet balance leans towards the bitter side.

Draught at Watering Hole. Rich cereals, coffee, cocoa, notes of licorice and tobacco, roasty finish. Nice one, feels quite rich for this abv, oatmeal is definitely helping there.
