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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

8/02/2014: Morgantown Coal City Ctout... Cocoa roast nose with a lot of great stuff in the flavor, including roasted malt, roasted barley, coffee, and dark chocolate. There’s a lot of roast to the point that it’s even a bit smoky. It’s dry and very pleasing on the palate. This is a FANTASTIC "regular" stout. I could drink this all day and night. This is one of the best beers of the day!

Draft sampler that poured opaque black with mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor wise this one finishes dry and bitter. You get the roasted malt and chocolate under the coffee bitterness. Pretty good stout.

I really liked this dry stout. Roasty with a bunch of coffee and dark chocolate. Black appearance with a thick brown head. Tried at the brewery in 2014.
