COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry stout that opens with a creamy wave that rolls off the tongue to unveil slight bittersweet chocolate and espresso undertones. A big bold brown head tops this midnight black brew, which features a light body, low hop bitterness, and grainy goodness throughout.

Growler shared by someone at Natifest (from notes). Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malts, dark cocoa, ashy, hints of coffee, I realize this is not an imperial stout, but this seemed thin and a touch watery, ok.

Tap at MBC. Black body. Dark rusty beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma. On the fuller side of medium bodied. A really solid Stout. A nice brewpub asset.

on tap at the brewpub; black with chocolate and roasted malt aroma; a smooth, dry stout with mild roasted malt notes; very pleasant and easy drinking

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark almost black color with a medium off-white head. A nice dark fruit and coffee nose. A pretty heavy roasted nose, chocolate, dark fruit. Pretty robust. Very good.

Interesting black beer smell. Big and black with a nice head. Barely any co2. Taste is mild roasty beer with a dark roasted finish. Pretty good dark beer, friendly and easy to take. Enjoyable too.

Morgantown Brewery Coal City Stout. APPEARANCE– Black as sin (not coal, HA!). Dark, creamy head. Can’t say any more about that. NOSE– Smells like a typical stout. Deep & roasty smells. FLAVOR– Outstanding! It’s a perfect stout. Just enough roastiness, and very balanced. NOTES – Excellent. Best WV beer I tried while on a week long trip through the state. Definitely will go out of my way in WV to return to Morgantown brewing and have some more of this beer.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery. Wonderful sweet, coffee, and malty nose. Pours dark, thick brown, with a thin head. Flavors comparable to the nose, with dark chocolate present, especially on the finish. Great stout.

Growler at Natifest - thanks for sharing! Pours a deep brown color with a tan head - understated, lovely appearance. Notes of roasted, toasted, and chocolate malts, earth, nuts, and a bit of espresso. The aroma is sweeter, while the flavor leans earthier. Light-bodied, with low carbonation. A bit watery and washed out. Otherwise, a decent stout.

Natifest 2014. Much lighter than aroma let’s on. Tomfoolery, trickery even. Fuck a duck and call a Bobbie.

Growler thanks to a guy in a sailing the seas of cheese shirt - NF14. Smoky like char coal lighter fluid. Light body but smokey! Easy to drink. I could also drink this all day. Wink wink nudge nudge.
