COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This is a great beer! Fairly dark pint pour with full finger off white head. Nose is fairly sharp, with good roasted malts and healthy coffee notes present and light vanilla. Flavor follows without being too over powering. Roasted malts throughout and again, more coffee. Delicious coffee! Lighter body and quite drinkable.

Tap at brewery. Super dark black hole with thick cream head. Huge fresh ground coffee aroma with creamy hints. Big body malt with lots of lactose and roasted grain. Really nice beer.

Crowler thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong coffee, roast, chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with nice roast, lactose, sweet finish. Good.

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at the Florida Beer Invitational - Proof Brewing = thanks to Coleman for the pour! Dark brown pour, off-white head. Earthy aroma, funky, with some peat moss accents, some green organic free trade coffee. Flavor has some coffee, some bittersweet dark chocolate, some green tobacco notes. Thick enough mouthfeel..

DocJitsu (1046) - Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a dark cola-brown with a short, yet perpetual light caramel head. Big coffee nose. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Sweet malt, coffee, both mellow and scrumptious.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown. Smell is very sweet. A lot of coffee and chocolate also. Different form a porter. Smooth, dark chocolate flavor. Lactose. Really easy to drink even when it’s so hot out. Pretty good. I’d get it again.

Crowler 1L. Pours very dark brown with low beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of cold coffee, roasted malt, vegetal stuff. Taste is of vegetal stuff, roasted malt, slight bitterness, ashes, faint garbage, sugar. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Not too good. Weird malt/sugars, and yeast aint’ 100% on. Or maybe it’s just the crowler?

From a <strike>750ml</strike> 1L "crowler", nice novelty item! Pours a dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of cold coffee, light green peppers, roast and ash but not quite "ash-y". As weird as it may sound I felt like it was cohesive and didn’t turn me off. Taste is lightly sweet, offers more intense coffee, some peppers and chocolate/moka. Body is medium, carbonation as well and mouthfeel somewhat smooth. Overall a good sweet stout, not too sweet and sessionnable. Of course I’d cut down on the coffee a little but it was still enjoyable and well made to me.
